    We booked both Esther Cottage & the Retreat for one night, for our extended family stay. We were so pleased that we chose The Richmond Barracks. Both cottages were "spotless" and super comfortable. We met Simone (what a lovely, friendly lady) on checking in and then proceeded to the airport to pick up our family. Simone had turned on the...

    It's just like a modern hotel room, fairly average but very clean and with a handy kitchenette. The bathroom was very cold, but very clean. The owner was nice enough, but the office smelled badly of the large dog. Although there was supposed to be free wifi, we could not connect.

    Thankyou for taking the time to review. New owners have now taken over the Richmond Barracks, as of 1st July, 2015. We look forward to providing quality accommodation and absolute customer satisfaction. The Richmond Barracks contains the original 1830's officers barracks on site. All accommodation however, is purpose built and designed to compliment the original dwelling, while at the same... More

    Wonderful accommodation! My partner and I spent 2 lovely days at Richmond Barracks in the 'Cellar'. Absolutely spotless throughout, well furnished with all needs catered for. Beautifully equipped with everything we needed. The ample breakfast basket was set up with cereal, yoghurt, fresh milk and juice, 3 types of bread and fresh fruit, more than enough! The owners were extremely... More

    We stayed at Richmond Barracks for two nights in the Lady Esther cottage. The downstairs space included a bedroom, en suite, kitchenette with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc, two lounges and a dining table with four chairs. There was a second bedroom and toilet upstairs. The bed was very comfortable, with quality linen, an electric blanket, good bedside lighting, fluffy... More

    We stayed in the Lady Esther and it was roomy enough for four and well set up to stay in. The owner was great, checking in and bringing breakfast the night before (well worth adding to your stay) without being intrusive. Clean, comfortable and so close to town. Quite private. Well worth staying. We would certainly stay again.

    We (a group of four) spent a delightful six days at the Barracks and could not speak more highly of the accommodation and the friendly and efficient service. Liz and Martin always go the extra mile (in organising dinner bookings etc) and are the epitome of hospitality. PS I am pleased Bruno features in some of the photos.

    A recent return visit to the Richmond Barracks and it was just as lovely as I remembered. The accommodation is very comfortable and well equipped, the breakfast fresh and healthy, the tariff very good value, location excellent and the owners very friendly and knowledgeable of the local surrounds.

    We could only stay one night but the two-room apartment was tastefully decorated, quiet and comfortable, only one block from the centre of town. The historic barracks seemed appropriate for a stay in this historic town.
