This was such an enjoyable stay - from the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff and the smart and comfortable bedroom to the lovely parlour and excellent breakfast. As for the restaurant - very good value for top class food (and enough non-meat options) and a great wine list. The location is lovely - in a Georgian cobbled street looking towards... More

From the moment we walked into the hotel we knew we were somewhere special. David's wonderful greeting made us feel so welcome and when we walked into the Bridal Suite we were blown away. Words wouldn't do the room justice, suffice to say that it's so unique you need to be there to appreciate it. We ate at the hotel... More

I was here for business and was extremely happy with the entire stay. The hotel is decorated to a very high standard and the staff are incredibly kind and helpful. The restuarant on site is amazing with outstanding culinary choices along with fabulous wines to accompany the various portions of your meal. I would stay here again for sure, it... More

This was our second visit en route to Scotland. This is certainly the best ever boutique hotel we have visited - hence our return stay. The delightful setting of cobbled streets and quirky building add to the charm during your stay. The location is easily accessible to the town centre and wonderful city walks to the castle or Easby Abbey.... More

We stayed in November last year for our anniversary. The room was great and the service from the staff was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and they were all so friendly. We had a meal in the restaurant which was amazing. We would have like to have gone back this year but they only had the bridal suite available... More

I stayed at the Frenchgate with my husband for one night and will definitely return. We stayed in the Mousey Thompson suite which has to be seen to be believed. With its huge bed (which was without a doubt the best mattress I have ever slept on), cosy fireside seating area, and stunning modern bathroom I would highly recommend. No... More

I stayed for one night on my way back to Scotland. Everything about the Frenchgate was what you would expect from a boutique hotel. It is located on a quiet cobbled street close to the town centre. Parking was easy - right outside the front door. The room was well-appointed and comfortable. David and his staff were friendly and efficient.... More

Small and quirky, close to Market Square in historic Richmond, up the hill on quaint, cobbled Frenchgate. Just 9 rooms in a building that is part 17thC and part 18thC. Charming welcome from David, Jessica, Kali and Caitlin; not a family, except in spirit, and clearly (justifiably) proud of their service - and of their bar (always of personal interest),... More

We stayed here recently and booked the last two rooms - a double and a twin bedded room. We were shown to the first room which had a double bed. The second room had a very large bed in it and the owner explained that it had two separate duvets on it as they do in Scandinavia. Then he said... More

Goodenoughtoeat, Owner at The Frenchgate Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments, it is a also a shame that our much tried and tested humour has become the focus of your stay, and not the quality of sleep, cleanliness, service, food etc. We hate small beds, these unique solid oak beds were designed for the hotel and they only exist here at The Frenchgate Hotel. Again, what... More

My wife and I stayed at the Frenchgate hotel for 3 nights at the end of October early November 2014. The hotel was very comfortable with quality fixtures and fittings and a homely feel. It was conveniently located close to the town centre and with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales. We were made to feel very welcome by David... More
