From our arrival to our departure, I cannot fault the staff or the Hotel and its proprietor David. On our arrival we were greeted and treated so well by the staff. The Hotel was spotless and the bedrooms were well sized, and very comfortable. The Restaurant was excellent as all the ingredients were sourced locally and the food was at... More

We had booked one night at the hotel and on arriving the room had been set up as a double not a twin but it was soon rectified and we offered a drink on the house whilst the beds were changed. We were in the cottage and it was a lovely room with an original roll top bath. Due to... More

I've stayed here several times on business and this is my hotel of choice in the Richmond area. Its in a great location in a quiet street very close to the town centre. Its an old building decorated in a modern contemporary style with a calm relaxed feel. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. I thoroughly recommend it.

Have just returned from the Frenchgate, after spending a night with a good friend! We were met in the car park at the rear of the property, by David the very friendly owner, who was waiting with umbrella in the rain to escort us inside! We were shown to our lovely single rooms, the Paris and New York. Lovely decor,... More

Modern and comfortable room with all the required facilities. Enjoyed a lovely evening meal, plenty of options on menu and a delicious breakfast. Throughout the stay host was great fun. Easy access from rear car park.

We stayed on the Sunday of a public holiday. The room was very comfortable (7 foot wide bed), and dinner was exceptionally good and well priced. For dinner, it made us think of Le Manoir Quat'Saisons.

We spent a lovely night at this beautiful hotel. The owner, David, and his staff are superb and nothing is too much trouble for them. We took advantage of the 5 course menu which did not disappoint. It is a well thought out interesting menu and worth the price. Breakfast was also great (I can wholeheartedly recommend the porridge ).... More

Jo and I have nothing but the highest praise for David and his colleagues. Room 6 has a hugely comfortable bed and wonderful wet shower room. Dinner choices are exciting combinations and of the highest quality, the service even better. Go try! Peter and Jo

Beautiful part of the country and a really nice location. Booked an over night stay to attend Catterick Barracks. We were made very welcome. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. Our room was excellent and I can highly recommend the restaurant. Well worth a visit.

this Hotel is a complete one-off, lovely small boutique hotel. Could not fault the service and standard of food. The owner, David, is very hands-on, very friendly and takes the trouble to get to know all of his guests. We were lucky enough to stay in the "bridal suite" which was truly amazing. Large four poster, jacuzzi bath modern conveniences,... More
