Friendly and efficient staff. Rooms very clean and bathrooms well equipped. Sign into car park not very clear due to damage. Dinners and breakfasts excellent. Quiet but central location to town centre.

I stayed at this hotel for the purpose of a business trip. The location was great, 5 minutes from the town centre. The hotel service was exceptional and the hotel had a lot of character including a lounge with a fireplace! The food was very tasty and the hotel caters for any special dietary requirements if you request in advance.... More

Nothing to dislike. Quirky old rooms with character .. Loved the beautiful bath and walk in shower in our room. Pleasant and helpful staff. Lovely breakfast ... Comfortable bed and bedding. It was also a joy to be able to open our windows too !!

Brought my Mum here for 1 night to celebrate her 85th birthday, and had a wonderful experience from beginning to end! We were given a really warm welcome and personally shown to our room by the lovely receptionist. Really comfy beds, well appointed rooms (not huge, but had everything we needed), but it's the personal service in this place that... More

I rarely stray from the tried and tested big chain hotels, but as this was more of a pleasure journey, mixed with a bit of business, I decided to go off the beaten track and try an independent. As an avid driver I had always wanted to visit the North Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland, which are renowned for some great... More

We spent three nights here in February. The room was fine, downstairs areas were comfortable and the restaurant was a real highlight, great for both dinner and breakfast - don't lose the chef! We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Richmond.

We stayed here with good friends last weekend. From start to finish we were treated with respect and enthusiasm by the owner and whole team. The rooms are contemporary and comfortable. The dining and bar are great with amazing quality and choice, and that included the breakfast. Cannot recommend this place enough and we are world travelers and quite discerning!

we have stayed in a lot of top class hotels all over the world and I can honestly say the service was the best personal service we have received. Our son and daughter in law booked this for us as a surprise, and on entering the hotel we were greeted by David the proprietor he got the keys to our... More

I have stayed at the Frenchgate quite a few times now and I always request the same room which is the mousey Thompson suite. The room is absolutely amazing, an absolutely huge wooden four poster bed lovely open fire place and jacuzzi bath with a separate rain fall shower.. Excellent. The food is always fantastic and we often ask David... More
