“close to perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

For me this is the best hotel in Richmond!
The staff are superb. You're made feel really welcome; addressed with your name and not with your room number. A rare occasion even in some 5 star hotels today. On arrival your room is shown to you and features, like sound system, location of hairdryer, etc. are explained. In restaurant and bar there's no "questioning" of room numbers (there are none anyway - the rooms all have names) and credit card authorizations. They know who you are and that is good enough. Rooms are all very contemporarly decorated with great attention to detail. From entertainment to work space; everything is there. Food is outstanding! Breakfast is freshly prepared to your liking (no buffet type kept-warm-for-hours stuff here) and and the restaurant menu is innovative and changes daily. Only downside: "Innovative" is pricey and there's nothing simple on the menu.
There is also a beautiful garden with view on the river Thames.

Room Tip: Although all rooms are equipped and decorated to the same high standards; some of them are very smal...

I took a friend of mine for afternoon tea at the Bingham recently and we had a really wonderful time. The lounge was gorgeous, the tea delicious and the champagne and cocktails we added to it a real treat.
My friend was visiting from abroad and had never had an afternoon tea before and was really, really impressed by this. It was very traditional but everything tasted so good. I usually find the cakes at the end too sweet but these were all so tasty and not cloying.
The atmosphere was what made it really special. As it became dark outside the lights in the lounge were dimmed making it feel cosier. The staff were amazing. We always had what we needed but didn't feel like they were in any way obtrusive and we felt in absolutely no rush to leave. I think we ended up being there for nearly three hours and always felt welcome.

I have eaten in the restaurant here a few times too and have always thought it was fantastic. Delicious food, fabulous service, a real feeling that you're enjoying a special meal.

At the risk of sounding arrogant i've been lucky enough to eat at many fantastic restaurants in London, this is definitely amongst them. The food is comparable with Le Gavroche, the view of the thames excellent and the general manager over seeing everything taking care of your every need is fantastic. Definitely recommend dropping in for a few drinks at the hotel bar also if you don't have time for dinner.. Not entirely sure of a couple of the comments re service on this website, because if anything its too attentive but i guess different people prefer different things... Either way you have to go.

We have visited the Bingham twice, once in August 2012 and again in November 2013. Both were special occasions and both times we have had a fabulous time. The food is always top class, the Sunday lunch was delicious. The service is very attentive and the atmosphere is brilliant!
If you like cocktails I highly recommend the berry blast, it is deliciously
Both times we have visited we have have received great services and experienced delicious food. I highly recommend this place for a special occasion . The staff have great knowledge of wine and port and will endeavour to make your evening very enjoyable.

We recently attended a friend's wedding at the Bingham. On the morning of the wedding we left our room key with reception and left the hotel for a few hours to do some shopping in Richmond. On our return we soon realised that a very expensive diamond ring was missing from the room. Despite the personal attention of the manager and the immediate involvement of the police, the ring was not recovered. I would not recommend this hotel and will not return

I took my boyfriend here a surprise birthday present and it was superb from start to finish. The room and grounds are stunning and beautifully laid out. The staff are exceptional, smiley chatty and helpful, even providing us with a phone charger. We came on the Lazy Sunday package which included a sumptuous 3 course Sunday lunch, the pumpkin risotto starter being one of the tastiest dishes i have ever eaten. We were also given cocktails in the beautiful bar area as part of our package and topped our perfect day off with some sumptuous scented candles and a bed full of rose petals. The only downfall is that its a bit of a walk from the station but the incredible riverside location and the views it provides are well worth it.

Located in Richmond-on-Thames, overlooking the river only 5 minutes from the town centre. Having booked in for a Sunday evening, we received excellent service upon arrival including an off-street parking space just opposite. We had an unexpected upgrade to a lovely room with views (although a bit restricted) over the river, with large en-suite bathroom.
We were looking forward to dinner but were a bit disappointed to learn that they don't serve dinner on Sunday night. The room was large and comfortable, service excellent throughout, so to recommend this hotel to anyone is easy.
