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.

We returned to the Frenchgate Hotel for our second visit to England from one year ago. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and staff. The rooms are well appointed with modern lighting. The food is amazing !

The host/owner was bubbly and very knowledgeable of food and wine Food and service in the restaurant was excellent. Tastefully decorated with free on site parking.

A quiet location close to the centre of Richmond, high quality food, comfortable bedroom and friendly helpful staff. Limited parking on the street . You will need directions to find the hotel car park.

This is a really nice, well-priced hotel in a very beautiful Yorkshire town. We were a group of four people and were staying in 3 rooms. My husband and I had the suite on the top floor which was great. My mother in law and my daughter both had much smaller rooms on the floor below. They were small but... More

The Frenchgate Restaurant and Hotel is more akin to a guesthouse than a hotel. It doesn’t provide the range of services and amenities that would be reasonably expected of a hotel. We were housed in a room described as The Cottage which is accessed two doors up from the main hotel entrance. The description which conjures up pleasant images but... More

Stayed 1 night en-route back from Scotland holiday. Very conveniently located in pretty town, lovely welcome on arrival, excellent quiet room and first class dinner. Very much enjoyed and we would like to come back to enjoy the surrounding area. Excellent in every respect and highly recommended.

The owner has an eye for detail. We stayed in the London Room. The room and the en-suite bathroom were excellent and the toiletries were a welcome bit of luxury. The food, in particular the American breakfast was top rate. The staff very helpful and attentive. We will definitely be visiting again.

Our first time at The Frenchgate and it met our needs very well indeed. Good accommodation, personal owner's touch and welcome, and very good quality dinner and breakfast. We would definitely stay again.
