Can't believe I'm reading such great reviews on this tired hotel. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in July. We wanted to be close to Heathrow for an early flight home and Richmond appeared to be a nice place. We were in room 3 in the basement. Everything was pretty shabby, not very clean, and there was...

The location was perfect, next to tube & bus stations and just a short walk from Richmond town center and the riverside. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I got a single room with an en-suite bathroom, the bed was comfortable, the room was nicely furbished and fairly clean (it was a bit dusty, but not disturbingly so), I had... More

A great B & B in Richmond, close to the Richmond park, main shops and train station. Room was large and well heated with a good ensuite bathroom. Staff were friendly. Good breakfast. Very reasonable price.

I stayed here in May 14 as a base prior to walking 100km route from London to Brighton. The room was clean, comfortable & spacious. I would recommend this hotel as a base for rugby fans wishing to go to Twickenham as a short walk from Richmond train station & the town.

After a period of rough depressing hotels in Earls Court it was time to find somewhere offering better quality but the same budget as the rough end of Earls court so that's how I found the Shandon House Hotel. £40 per night offered a pleasant single room with shared facilities. It was clean well finished and relatively modern. Free wifi... More

I had thought I booked a twin room for my sister and I but when we arrived it was a double but they had no trouble in changing it to a twin. We had a lovely big room at the front of the hotel. It can be a bit noisy with traffic and planes but that is not their fault.... More

Functional and clean room. Great welcome, manageress very helpful and accomodating. Good value for money. This hotel is a mere couple of hundred yards to the tube station. Residents are able to remain in room until mid day on day of checkout. No pretentions, just good plain VFM!

I recently stayed 3 nights in the Shandon and wanted to say how pleased I was with my stay! I needed to be in Richmond for hospital appointments and did not have a large amount of money to spend, so ending up booking the Shandon as it was the cheapest in the area. I did not have high expectations! Firstly,... More

I cannot say anymore than the short stay was just perfect. Close to rail links, shops and eating, in fact the heart of Richmond. The hotel itself was clean, tidy and very friendly staff. It gets a 10/10 from me and I shall be using it more often.

This review would probably we worse if it were not for the very helpful lady on reception who let me choose from 3 rooms. A bit like goldilocks, the first room was too noisy (window frame was badly fitting and letting traffic noise in), second room was too warm (radiator was stuck on hot despite being supposedly off), third room...
