This was our 4th visit to the Frenchgate Hotel & it never let's us down.David & his staff are always welcoming and friendly & nothing is too much for them.We first went when we got engaged & now for our honeymoon ♡ we would strongly recommend anyone to do the wine flight. Marvelous, will be going back.

We stayed here for one night en route from Scotland to break our journey. What a find! From our wonderfully warm welcome from the owner David and his receptionist Alice to an exceptional meal in the restaurant our whole experience was perfect. We had a great room that had a modern bathroom with a rain-shower and fluffy white towels,(no silly... More

Richmond was such a pleasant surprise - an unspoiled Georgian town in a splendid location on the Swale - so much to enjoy - and so well located to explore the dales and the lakes. The Frenchgate understands service, from superb food and wine to conversation, room design etc. Should we return to North Yorkshire, we would stay nowhere else.... More

Really enjoyed the stay at Frenchgate, service was friendly, food was superb and the place was spotless. They cook a fresh breakfast rather than those horrible cold buffets you get in the big chains of hotels, why stay with them when there's places like Frenchgate doing the job properly.

From arrival to departure we were made to feel special, the customer service was excellent, our room was perfect (the bed is fabulously comfortable), the food is to die for. We totally recommend a stay here. Richmond itself is a cute quirky little market town with lots of Nicky nacky shops, cafés, eateries and cosy pubs surrounding a large market... More

On our arrival we were pleasantly surprised to be given the "Mousey Thompson Suite" - what a beautiful and comfortable room. All staff were very pleasant and helpful and the owner very entertaining. The food was delicious. It was our second stay there and it is still as welcoming as ever. - Donald and Monika Gordon

Excellent few days at Frenchgate. Very good food. Stay spoilt a little by lack of internet connectivity. Will very likely return nevertheless if wifi problem is fixed. Hotel is very clean and well run. Staff were found to be obliging and friendly and had an almost old fashioned approach to customer care.

Warm welcome and a very comfortable room, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and a bed that nearly made us late for the generous breakfast. The dinner was lovely, with difficult choices between options, focussing on locally sourced produce. We would be happy to return if in Richmond again.

Room was amazing, food fantastic views too. The Mousey Thompson suite is something quite special a definite choice for a trip away treat. Fabulous historic room with a beautiful modern bathroom. The staff where helpful and pleasant and the food in the restaurant was delightful. Definite return visit on the cards.

I have left submitting this review for a while to make sure I give it a fair summary Overall unfortunately my visit to frenchgate was rather disappointing. i can only conclude that the establishment thinks that it is a restaurant/bar with a hotel attached and thinks that 4* results from fancy features rather than good service. My visit began with... More
