A great hotel in every way and if you want to experience a Yorkshire welcome and stay in a cottage hotel in a cobbled street book now , but book early because the rooms go quick . Great host, great food ,great local beers and a wide choice of wines. With only 9 rooms This place treats you as an... More

Stayed two nights at this very comfy hotel very near the town centre. The Owner and staff were excellent in every respect and the food was superb. Plenty of things to see and do locally including Richmond Castle, the Theatre Royal, various museums and scenic river walks.

This hotel is completely overpriced. The building itself is in a block of cottages and not a prestigious standalone building. We could have stayed at the Clivedon for less !!The tiny garden was full of plastic chairs and tables and not very welcoming and not somewhere you would want to sit. The only positive point was the food which was... More

We arrived feeling a little jaded after a busy day and were instantly made welcome. Our host takes justifiable pride in the design of the bedrooms and bathrooms, all based on his own experiences as a traveller. The result is a thoroughly comfortable experience where every detail has been carefully considered. Our experience in the dining room, both for dinner... More

This hotel is excellent and would call again should we travel to Richmond, the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is good too with the town centre close. Food was good, a 7 foot bed was great with a state of the art wet room shower. The shower had under floor heating Mr & mrs Benn.

The Frenchgate Hotel was an excellent choice for an overnight stay in Richmond while touring the Yorkshire Dales in a Jaguar XJS. I have never written a review before but felt it was all so good that I had to recommend it. The location was excellent, the dinner was excellent, the wine list was excellent and the room was lovely.... More

This hotel is one of the I best I have stayed in both here in the UK and abroad. It has a very high end contemporary interior whilst being very cosy and welcoming. My bedroom was superbly furnished with lots of finishing touches that you don't even know you will need until you see and use them! The service was... More

Lovely hotel in historic part of town. Very focused on needs of guests and superb breakfast. Probably understaffed at times which is possibly why we never did get our complimentary glass of champagne.
