Booked in here to overnight after Day 9 of my Coast to Coast Walk. Check-in took a while as it had to be done in the busy bar area rather than at a separate check-in desk, no worries it gave me a chance to sit down. This was the only place on my trek that wanted the room money up... More

We stayed here with our 2 dogs. The room was recently renovated to a good standard. Dogs are not allowed in the breakfast room but the staff said they could set us up a table in a dog friendly part of the hotel which was perfect for us. Breakfast was tasty too. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Friendly helpful staff, quiet room on top floor, very steep stairs to room, but worth it when we got there. Pleasant enough room and bathroom. Beautiful old dining room for delicious and huge breakfast. Free carpark right by hotel. Right in centre of delightful Richmond.

We stopped for an evening meal on our way home from the Grand Prix at Silverstone having had poor food experiences all weekend and this hotel was a gift. Not only the best meal for days, but one of the best we have had. Go for a meal you won't regret it.

As part of our Coast to Coast walk we ate here on two consecutive nights as the first meal was so good and the waitress was so friendly and efficient. Our first meal was on a busy Friday evening but we were made welcome and the waitress explained that we were still in time to order from the early birds... More

We were impressed with the food in the bar and there is private parking but we weren't too impressed with the room. It was supposed to have wi-fi but it didn't and the room was very small and pokey. The sleep quality was good though but everything seemed a little tired. Car parking was very tight and we had trouble... More

Booked a two night stay to have a day in Richmond and a day at the motor racing at Croft. Didn't like the idea of pay before you stay. We had room 12 on the third floor, the room had plenty of space and the bathroom was quite large and very clean. But there was a problem getting to the... More

Arrived at 8pm Saturday evening, had a little wait for the bar staff to become free. Member of staff then took our details, checked in, and lead us to our room. Breakfast served 8-10am Sunday morning. Asked if we needed to eat, went straight into the restaurant area. Meal was lovely, served quickly and very hot. Couple of real ales... More

Had our wedding reception here 35 yrs ago! Things have changed a bit but the atmosphere here is as friendly as ever and the changes in the bar area have catered for meals as well as an evening drink. Food great, staff really helpful and accomodation good as well as great location will definitely go back and will not leave... More
