LOCATION 100m from centre of Strathpepper so very near newsagent and supermarket. Lovely village overlooked by moors. ROOMS I stayed in the Rose Quartz room which was very pleasant, traditionally decorated, large and bright with two armchairs before big windows with great views over the village and to the moors. Very comfortable bed, bath and shower with plenty of hot...

Sarina and I use reviews as a way of constantly improving our service. It is great to hear that we we acheived a good balance of warmth of welcome and privacy. Thank you Mark.

We booked for the first weekend in January. We were the only guests in the hotel, though the bar and restaurant attracted visitors on the Friday and Saturday evenings. There are eight or nine rooms in total, and they are all different (we peeked into the empty rooms!) - tastefully and elegantly decorated. Phil and Sarina were very welcoming and...

A very warm welcome from Phil and Sarina was the start of a gorgeous three days at the Richmond Hotel. We were offered the Rose Quartz room, which is beautifully created with two armchairs offering stunning views across the glen. Very close to the Village centre and with easy access to the surrounding hills. The traditional Mauritian food is definitely...

Thank you, the Rose Quartz room is my favourite bedroom in the hotel and not just becuase Rose Quartz is the crystal of unconditional love.

Comfortable bed with ensuite bath/shower overhead. No central heating in the room so I'm glad it wasn't later in the year. No tv in the room so if that's important to you take note. Good breakfast choice.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while on holiday in Scotland. The hotel is comfortable and well maintained. It is almost in the centre of Strathpeffer, just up the hill from the town square. It is a small hotel with around half a dozen rooms and is mercifully free of the coach tour trade that dominates most of...
