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

Our second visit to this excellent hotel, where the food and service was as good as before. The two dinners were perfect ,as were the breakfasts-something which can often let down a hotel, but not in this case. An ideal position for walking the local area ,or visiting the many fine Dales towns in the vicinity

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Frenchgate hotel. The dinner we had on one night was really lovely. We had a 3 for 2 deal on our stay otherwise it would have been a tad expensive. The room we had was lovely but a little small for us, the bathroom was also good. Would we stay here again,... More

My second visit on business with colleagues from Finland. Next time I am in the area I would stay again without hesitation. It is a wonderful blend of a homely b&b with a high class modern boutique hotel.

We stayed for three days in December 2014, eating in the restaurant each night. It would be unfair to call this a restaurant with rooms, as it offers truly excellent hotel facilities and is a very relaxing place to stay. But the food is quite exceptional and we still have clear memories of the dishes we were serviced, plus the... More

We had a dining table and chairs in the room and had dinner served there on the 1st... More

Stayed 2nd to 6th February. Stayed here before. Room perfect. Beds great. Wet room brilliant. I was demanding guest. Arrival time late (01.00 ) due to travel, ferry times etc. david rang me to check progress and check in formality was minimum. I'd prefer more towels, but I know that if id asked they would have arrived. It was snowy... More

Unfortunately it was a family funeral which took us to Richmond. We decidded to stay at The Frenchgate Hotel, but after reading the previous reviews I was a little worried about David. There really was no need to worry he was justly proud of his hotel and we were interested to hear a bit of the history. We stayed in... More

My wife and I spent a weekend in Richmond, which I have to say is a beautiful little town. Having never stayed in the area before I decided to book the frenchgate based on the reviews I had read. I booked a 1 night stay with bed and breakfast, the cost was £148 which I didn't mind as I was... More
