It couldn't have been more perfect... beautiful stylish accommodation, scrumptious food served in a charming exclusive restaurant lit by candlelight and delightful staff! Perfect for a romantic weekend. We were very happy customers and will be returning!

I stayed here for two nights on a solo trip to the UK in early December. No special reason to be there, I just like to see different places. The Frenchgate is a very good hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. I had dinner there on the first night and... More

As a party of eight looking for a relaxing night away, the Frenchgate certainly delivered. From the start the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, their attention to detail was second to none, the rooms were spotless and furnished to a very high standard. When it came to the dinning experience they did not disappoint as... More

We held our small wedding reception (9 adults and 3 children) at the hotel and booked the bridal suite that evening. I booked the room/s through bookin.com but then after speaking to David he agreed to give us a fairly generous discount on the online price. I recommend picking up the phone and talking to the owner direct. David agreed... More

I have stayed at the Frenchgate on business for an average of 5 single nights per year since 2006. David and his staff have always been most welcoming and friendly, attentive but not overly so, and the staff are trained to a very high standard. When I first stayed, the bedrooms were tired and old fashioned but with modernisation came... More

Especially when your review recognises the importance of consistency, with 40 + visits to your name, with many improvements to the rooms and changes in staff. It is great to hear from repeat guests such as you that the efforts and hard work by everyone at... More

We knew nothing about this hotel before we visited except that it was in Richmond. What a lovely spot, within easy walking distance of the town centre, beautifully restored and maintained. We were on the top floor, with the most enormous bed, and superb wet room. We were welcomed warmly by David and all the staff, and made to feel... More

We stayed in the Bridal Suite and it is an exceptional room . The staff were superb as was the evening meal . The Hotel is very close to Richmond Centre so once you are there you can really relax . We would recommend the Frenchgate for couples looking for a romantic weekend .

David extended a very warm welcome and all the staff were attentive and friendly. We so enjoyed our one night stay at The Frenchgate. The room was beautiful, a 7 ft bed with quality bed linen and a stylish bathroom. The food in the restaurant was superb, the staff were professional but not pretentious. The hotel has such character and... More

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
