Stayed here whilst working in Richmond and chose it for the convenient location to the office. I have to say im suprised that it is not higher up the rankings on Trip Advisor as I found it very impressive. Ralph is a super friendly and welcoming host, he recommended a great restaurant to eat in near the b&b and i... More

Wow, what an incredible outlook from both our room and the breakfast room. Very comfortable, very friendly with good breakfast. Really enjoyed our stay and would higly recommend this B & B. Richmond itself is a delightful little old town and well worth a look.

We enjoyed A one night stay in the Napoli suit in March 2014, the room facilities were excellent very clean and comfortable (definitely worth the upgrade). The hosts were very welcoming and food was excellent. Overall a wonderful romantic break will definitely be back.

Firstly, thank you Ralph for making our anniversary weekend so special when we stayed in your beautiful home. The free room upgrade you gave us upon booking when I informed you of the occassion was an unexpected delight. "Superb" is the only way to describe the comfort and elegance of that room. But when you go into the breakfast room... More

We booked this last minute when we managed to snag tickets for the theatre earlier in the week. We arrived a little early but it wasnt a trouble, the welcome was warm & friendly. The owner, Mr Doy is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The guest house gives you easy access to all that Richmond has to... More

Ralph's lovely house has a fantastic situation with wonderful views down over Richmond, the castle, even Easby Abbey. If you take a photo off his balcony (just outside the stunning room where you eat breakfast) then it comes out looking like one of those calendar pictures you'd send to your cousins in the US. It really is that fine, and... More

I enjoyed my stay at frenchgate guest house, the rooms were immaculate and high quality finish; beds were very comfortable and we had facilities to make drinks. The breakfast was of very high standard with a view that only a painter could create; stunning views over the whole valley. Certainly the best placed B&B in richmond and clearly high quality....

The view alone is worth the £39 pp. Ralph the owner is very helpful and very friendly. We were in a group of 6 muddy cyclists and looking back wish I'd offered to Hoover up after us. The location and service is second to none. Breakfast is first class also. Thanks for having us Ralph.
