“Functional but friendly pub hotel with great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We stayed for two nights, part business and part pleasure. The pub is ideally located by the Thames and in walking distance of Richmond. Food was basic but good. Sam Smiths beers were a little pricey but in excellent condition. Yum! Room (4 poster) was clean and comfortable. The bath taps were too stiff to work but a man with WD40 worked wonders!

The staff were friendly but were let down by the state of the room. Beard trimmings on the sink, red/brown splashes and hairs by the sink and an even larger amount of hair trimmings dried into the shower tray (which I elected not to use). The toilet was disgusting with dried matter that was splashed on the underside of the toilet seat and down the front of the toilet. This was accompanied by the smell of drains when you used the sink. The taps were dirty and lime scaled as was the kettle.
I was also kept awake all night by musical plumbing and, like some other guests, the heat.
This was topped of by a phone call in the morning reminding not to be late for breakfast as they stop serving at 9.30 sharp! I think i can manage to get myself up thank you . I will be finding another £30 and staying at the Richmond Hill or some other such place that actually runs like a hotel next time.

We had a fabulous Sunday roast here! The food is excellent and the gravy would put any Southern belle to shame! The vegetables are fresh and cooked to perfection with no extra butter to muck up the flavor. On top of the superb food, the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful! It's a great place for families, couples, or singles. Best value for money in Richmond.

I thought this was a good small hotel. There were plenty of rooms and it was surprisingly quiet. What made it was the owner, I think Peter Baxter & his wife. They were really good and helpful about local shops. They weren't too obtrusive but were making sure everything was OK. The Sunday roast was good.

I couldn't get a drink at the bar on one night but it didn't matter. it was sort of funny wine.

The wifi was a bit leary but I dont expect that to be great in a hotel.

Room Tip: On the first floor probably quieter

I stayed here for a long weekend with my husband and child. After having looked everywhere for a child friendly place I was happy to find The Rose of York. The staff here are very nice and catered to all our needs. The food is lovely especially the Sunday Roast. Prices are very reasonable too considering the area you are in. Rooms are clean and they provide parking which in this part of town seems to be very rare. Its only a short walk into Richmond which has loads of shops, theatres and the station that brings you into Central London.

Just 7 minutes walk to the park. Plenty of parking. I stayed Saturday night and on arrival there was only 1 other car in the carpark. Rooms are modern, clean and comfortable breakfast is ample and served until 9.30 (on Sunday). The bar was quiet on Saturday evening. Good evening meal menu, reasonable prices, helpful and friendly staff. It's a 25 - 30 minute walk to the underground for visits to central London. A good deal at £85 for a double room including breakfast.

i stayed in this fanstastic pub hotel for a few days and it could not have been any more plesent. As soon as we got there we were warmly welcomed by fatastic bar staff that showed us to our amazing 4 poster bed room with a fanstasic view of the river. it was perfectly cleaned every day, the breakfasts were delightful and alsways served with a smile (even at 8am on a saturday mroning). We ate in the pub most evenings, the food was also top class and was a warm welcoming 'local' feel to the place with everyone being very frenidly and welcoming to someone that wasent from area.

i will be returning for annother fantastic trip.

Room Tip: the 4 poster room is deffo worth the small extra charge
