We recently stayed here for a birthday treat. My honest assessment is that it is overpriced. The staff are friendly enough, the food good and the room nice, but nothing was exceptional and, for the price we paid, I have higher expectations. The room was scruffy, with tired worn furniture, scuffed paintwork and large cracks in the partition wall, and... More

Very helpful staff, great boutique feel to the place, would highly recommend. Definitely a class above the usual. Would love to try the food next time as it was clear the quality was of a Michelln award winning level. Breakfast was probably the best I have had.

The hotel was lovely warm and cosy the staff where very friendly but what I will say is that the owner of this delightful little hotel was the most ignorant man I have ever met. When we arrived the owner David did not greet at all apart from rising his voice and scary my little 8 year old to stay... More

My husband and I stayed on a Saturday night at the Frenchgate Hotel while in North Yorkshire house hunting. It is a beautiful small hotel in this very pretty town. Kelly on the front desk is very efficient; the bedrooms and public rooms are very elegantly furnished with a lot of attention to detail; and the restaurant is excellent. Dinner... More

Stayed two nights over Xmas and although the hotel was quiet as we had hoped with a good English breakfast the Xmas day dinner priced at £85 per person left a lot to be desired. Plain tables with no tablecloths ,full dinner served on plate with no side dishes for vegetables and the offer of a Xmas day introductory cocktail... More

We booked this hotel after reading good reviews, however, we were disappointed when we arrived. The room in our opinion was over priced, small and nothing more than standard! There was no bath in the room just a walk in shower, which did look lovely but did not like at all. We did enquire about swapping to get a room... More

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

Thank you for your thoughts on your stay, it is helpful for us to explain, again, how we achieve the reviews we get. It is not just that we are a small boutique full 4 Star Hotel Hotel with just 9 individually designed non corporate guest rooms, but we have been forced to comply with the limiting rules of the...

We were two couples attending the also excellent Georgian Theatre Panto in Richmond and wished to stay in Richmond overnight. The owner of The Frenchgate accommodated us in every way and provided a lovely dinner for the four of us at 9-30pm after the show. The hotel's public rooms are cosy and welcoming, the bedrooms are clean and comfortable and... More

Many thanks for a lovely stay. Food and Service was excellent. The staff and in particular the owner David looked after our every need and we would not hesitate in recommending this hotel. Look forward to returning at a future date.

Spent Chriatmas here and had a wonderful time. Staff were all brilliant, smiley and helpful. Food is fast rate. Breakfasts substantial enough to keep you going all day. Had the best supper here that I've eaten all year. Absolutely Devine. Gluten free status didn't cause any issues. Hope to be back.
