Stated in January for my fiancé's birthday got a deal for evening meal, room and breakfast. Nice and welcoming host, big pleasant room with a gorgeous bathroom. Cannot fault the menu or food, drinks also reasonable. Only a stone throw from town, Will stay again.

The first thing that has to be said about the Frenchgate is that is not a hotel in anything except name. Hotels have bars.This doesn't. Instead it has a small snug so compact that it is impossible to have a private conversation. If you want a drink you order it from one of the staff - which usually means traipsing... More

A stop off on our way from London to Scotland, and a serendipetous one too. Highly comfortable, elegantly decorated, great breakfast (we arrived too late for dinner) and sleep-inducing beds. Service very very attentive. Yes, anytime.

A 1 night stop over as my son was passing out from catterick garrison. Been to Richmond many times lovely town and plenty of bars and places to eat. The Frenchgate had good accomadation and a nice breakfast. For January I belive it was a tad expensive and could do with a pillow selection in the bedroom.

We have just returned from a one night stay in this small but stunning boutique hotel. Set in an 18th century building, it contrasts old with new. Public areas are furnished with gorgeous antique furniture in-keeping with the building, but modern art adorns the walls. It was nipping clean and not a scuff mark to be seen - someone either...

This is the place to stay if, like me, you prefer somewhere that has individuality and great service that comes through attention to detail. The owner/manager David and his staff deserve all the credit. Room was superb as was the breakfast and evening meal served in the candle lit Georgian dining room. The hotel is on a very quiet cobbled... More

I would highly recommend this hotel and would be more than happy to stay here again. Lovely rooms, clean and comfortable. Super breakfasts and lovely staff. Great location for exploring the beautiful Georgian town of Richmond and surrounding Yorkshire Dales.

Having stayed one before and having had an amazing time we thought we would return for three nights over Christmas 2014. Once again David and his team were very hospitable and ensured we had the very best time. Rooms are very comfortable and well designed providing services better than any hotel we have stayed in this year. Food in the... More

It is very regrettable that I have to rate this stay as poor. I have thought long and hard about whether to rate this establishment as very good or very poor. The behaviour of "Dave" the proprietor is the sole reason why the rating is poor. A real life "Basil Fawlty" character; condenscending, patronising, and sneering on one hand and... More
