We stayed here for our wedding anniversary, but were also checking the hotel out (our son is getting married in the area next year) and wanted to recommend it to friends. We stayed in the Napoli Suite with a very uncomfortable egg shaped bath which lit up like Blackpool Illuminations when going to the toilet in the middle of the... More

We arrived very late at night, exhausted and thirsty. The owner made us feel so welcome. He came out to the car park, helped us park in the dark and carried our bags to The rooms. He is very proud, passionate and knowledgeable about his hotel, and this reflects on his team who all did s great job settling us... More

We stayed at the Frenchgate Hotel last weekend to celebrate my nephews passing out parade for the Coldstream Guards at nearly Catterick. The hotel had already been recommended by friends and we were not let down...everything was warm and welcoming and it was a pleasure to be greeted by David, the owner and his team. After a long drive, it... More

If the Frenchgate is No 1, then I worry about the rest, we had a so called superior room which was quite small and dominated by two very large single beds which the owner told us he had made to order, (not really worth the bother). There was a lot of damage to the staircase area which made the place... More

Well run by a man with passion. All the staff we came across were intelligent and proficient, dinner was fantastic and a real surprise. The beds were comfy. We will certainly go back, Richmond looked lovely.

We were given a track date and accommodation which had been won by friends. I would normally (perhaps cynically) expect accommodation prizes not to be of the highest standards but clean and comfortable. I cannot begin to express how taken aback we were on our arrival at the Frenchgate. The owner greeted us personally and immediately advised us of the... More

We recently spent two nights at the Frenchgate Hotel & Restaurant and would highly recommend it. As it was a late booking we stayed in two different rooms which we had agreed to on making the booking. The first room we stayed in was a lovely well kept en-suite room with a 4x6 double bed although the bed was a... More

We stayed at the Frenchgate Hotel on our wedding night recently. We had a night in the "honeymoon suite" which was large and very comfortable with a beautiful bathroom. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from the town centre on a relatively quiet side street with off street parking. The hotel is very nicely furnished with a lovely... More

We stayed in the suite, the hand carved oak bed is amazing, my only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. When we arrived, the hotel owner met us, he was friendly, welcoming and as soon as we arrived we knew that our stay was going to be excellent. We checked into the suite and proceeded to have a few...
