I'm a bit late with this review, but I'm sure none of the great things have changed. Sandra and Colin are very friendly owners and run an impeccable B&B. A few different things they have to mention - fresh milk for tea/coffee in the room, not the plastic stuff. Laundry service for same price as going to laundromat and doing... More

My wife and I stay here every year before just before Christmas for our annual Richmond walkabout (it's a pub crawl really!) with friends and colleagues from work. Colin and Sandra are always very welcoming and make you feel at home immediately. The room, we always get 'our' room, is very comfortable with all the usual extras and more besides.... More

We stayed at Willance Guest House for 2 nights over New Year and loved it there. It is utterly charming, full of character and our hosts, Colin and Sandra, could not have been more welcoming. Our room had a super king size bed and a modern and spotless en-suite complete with power shower. The breakfasts were wonderful and we felt... More

We stayed in Willance guest house for 2 nights, it's not the biggest guest house in Richmond but I would say 1 of the best.

I had to visit Darlington with my son aged 13, but we knew nothing about the area, so we decided to stay at Richmond which seemed to us a nice town. The experience was really good. The house is placed on a silent street almost at the centre, and you may usually park your car just in front of it... More

Willance House is a delight. Colin and Sandra are wonderful hosts, the accommodation is fabulous and every little detail has obviously been thought about long and hard. This was our third visit, after two previous Coast to Coast stopovers. We wanted to return for a more leisurely stay and really appreciate it properly this time. Thanks again for a memorable...

Outstanding accommodation within easy reach of local attractions! This historic building is owned by two extremely thoughtful and welcoming hosts. The standard of cuisine is exceptional. We were thoroughly surprised by the bedroom, which revealed impeccable standards of décor, comfort and lovely little personal touches. Thank you Colin and Sandra.
