Just stayed for 2 nights at the Black Lion Hotel, really impressed with the whole experience, the owner and staff were very friendly, food was excellent, our room was on the top floor and has not been refurbished yet but it was still clean and cosy, will defiantly be staying again in the future.

We wanted a pet friendly hotel as a stopover en route to our holiday in Northumberland. My husband did the research and chose this special place as it was my birthday. Our room was wonderful in every respect...beautifully furnished, as warm as you wanted and a fabulous bathroom. We had a lovely freshly cooked meal and enjoyed time in the... More

Quaint pub/hotel. Ideally placed right in the centre of Richmond. Staff are very friendly and happy to chat, especially the new owner Les. Rooms are currently being updated and I anticipate the hotel becoming even more popular when it has had the TLC Les promises his wife has in mind. Will definitely be going back again!

The staff were very friendly, the food at breakfast excellent. the only negative was that the room needs updating, as it looked very tired, the window you could not open so no air in the stuffy room. but having said this it is a quaint hotel

The room was cramped with very little floor space. On a chilly day the radiator was off on arrival and heating ceased at 8pm until the following morning. Shower tray drainage was blocked and overflowed so not able to use (manager said they were waiting for a plumber!). Evening meal was average quality but serving person had to return and... More

Hi Richard Many thanks for your feedback - I apologise for the shower unit not draining away fast enough - this has now been rectified. The heating is timed to come on three times during the day and evening with the latest time being 10 - 11pm. I will monitor the lack of fruit at breakfast and apologise for this... More

Stayed at the Black lion for Amalgamation parade. From the moment I arrived nothing was to much trouble . Booked in by very friendly staff and shown to my room. Had booked a single but was given a lovely double for same price. Had arranged for about a dozen friends from the Regiment to join me for dinner over 30... More

We booked the black lion to stay whilst visiting relatives in Richmond. On our late arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and regulars and shown to our room, clean,tidy, not ent suite but a large clean bathroom just opposite our room was more than sufficient. The breakfast was served quickly and hot. On our last evening we ate in... More

Stayed one night, I don't make a habit of an evening meal in the place I am staying at so we did a pub crawl expecting to find something else but ended up back at the Black lion, the pub was better than all the others and the food for price was great. Strangers were chatty as was the owner,... More
