Another great stay here. This time in a single room although the single bed was almost as big as a double. Very friendly. Great food. Would have been top marks but when I booked online I asked for a room at the back of the hotel and they seemed to have ignored this so worth ringing for requests. That said... More

Situated a short walk from the centre, this hotel is a real gem. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff and shown to our room and shown how things work (needed for the shower!). The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated, each with a different theme. We ate both nights at the hotel and really... More

I recently stayed with a small group at the Frenchgate and we had a very pleasant stay. Richmond is an interesting old market town with plenty of character and nice walks although rather lacking in good pubs. The hotel is situated on a quiet street with no through traffic close to the town centre. The hotel owner/manager and his staff... More

We booked the hotel as an early wedding anniversary break. We were accommodated in the exquisite bridal suite which was beyond our expectations, and absolute gem of 16th century richness. David, our host, could not be more welcoming and we benefited from his attendance, as did all the guests, from the beginning of our stay to the end. The young... More

We had a fabulous stay in the Napoli Suite, the welcome and off street parking got our stay off to a flying start. The bath and shower were amazing and the toiletries by the White Company and tea & coffee facilities were top notch. We booked into dinner which was of the highest standard. However our host was what brought... More

having visited here a few years ago we decided to go back. Staff are all great and David is a great host, making you feel really welcome. We stayed in the cottage which although has a lower ceiling in the bath room (so no shower just a roll top bath) but being 5ft 8 had no issues. The bed is... More

We booked this hotel based on recommendations we had seen on the internet and definitely lived up to expectations. The staff were all exceptional and delivered a top notch service. The food was top class. Richmond is a beautiful place and we did a lovely walk in a figure of 8 starting at the hotel and going out and back... More

My husband and I spent his birthday at the Frenchgate. An excellent time was had and a wonderful birthday treat for my husband. The Hotel is situated in a wonderful location within walking distance of the village, castle, river walk, and the converted station which has an array of wonderful fresh produce, cafe and cinema. The hotel itself was very... More

This was a last minute booking where I phoned the day before staying and got a great deal compared to the advertised sites (was a Sunday night). Really bespoke hotel with modern facilities, but the charm of an older hotel in the middle of historic Richmond. The hotel has parking but is also centrally placed to walk everywhere with a... More
