My wife and I stayed at the Richmond Gate hotel last week, with my wife's parents who are aged 91 and 89 - and apart from age are mobile and fit for their age. On arrival at the hotel, one of the managers (I did not get his name, but he was a Portuguese gentleman and most charming and helpful) immediately identified that the room they were allocated to was on an upper floor and he arranged for them to be on a lower floor.
The rooms in the hotel were excellent, we had a lovely view over the river, the dinner on both nights was extremely pleasant as was the breakfast. It was extremely useful to be relatively close to central London (it took me no more than 50 minutes to reach a business meeting in the City - door to door) and it was also convenient for us to travel to and from Euston for arrival and departure.
The staff were helpful, friendly and considerate - an important factor when you are travelling with elderly parents. My father-in-law was making a visit to the Bomber Command Memorial (he flew in Bomber Command 1941-1944 and was a PoW 1944-45), so at his age this was a significant trip. To stay in a comfortable and pleasant hotel was very important to him and to my mother-in-law.
