As a business traveller , hotels are sometimes hit and miss . The Frenchgate is a big hit from the welcome at the reception to the extra huge beds and spectacular rooms . Now if you want to eat the Restaurant is the only place to eat in town. This is not hotel food . This is fine Dinning at... More

We loved all of our stay at the Frenchgate Hotel. On arrival we were met by the owner David - who immediately upgraded us to a superior room - and what an amazing room it was!! A bespoke 4 poster bed and a feature fireplace carved by the British furniture designer Robert (mouseman) Thompson. Very suitable for honeymooners. The room... More

Very nicely located boutiquehotel in an pleasant markettown. The rooms are small but the beds give the comfort of a sofa; pity you can hardly stock your suitcase. The automatic lights in the bathroom are nice but ladies coudld use an extra shelve.The breakfast is fine and the decarotion ot the lounge is nicely modernish. The dinner was good though... More

Very good location in the town centre. Very comfortable room, good service, and very good food. We were on a short break wanting a base to discover the Swaledale area. Lots of good walks in the area. The hotel met our expectations of a small hotel, something that offered more personal space than a BnB or guest house, and also... More

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and always on hand. I stayed in room 3 which is a single room and it was lovely. The bed was super comfy and it has a great little bathroom. Everything needed for a comfortable stay. I would definitely visit again.

I already reviewed this place following an unpleasant stay a couple of weeks ago. Mysteriously, the review was "removed" so here we go again. Firstly and importantly, despite the location being charming, the inside of the property, including the attitude of the staff leaves plenty to be desired. Generally, these things are generated top-down and there can be no doubt... More

A small comfortable boutique hotel with an excellent restaurant and attentive, friendly staff and good service in all areas. Well located close to centre of Richmond. A good stopover if travelling North or South.

This hotel is in a perfect location and Richmond is a fantastic place to visit. David the host of the hotel, makes you feel extremely welcome but also a very appreciated guest. His ability to listen and provide the highest level of service to you, makes it feel more like you are staying at a stately home than a hotel.... More

We had a family get together in the Frenchgate Hotel and we were very well looked after. Lovely rooms and great food, plus David Todd, the owner, was a great host (and raconteur), plus very knowledgable about wine and interesting drinks. The garden was lovely for sitting out. Also, it is situated very close to the centre of Richmond, so... More
