Nice clean well decorated rooms. Generally good beds but avoid the guest bed in the family room - maybe its ok for a child but my adult son managed to dislodge the loose slats in the base and end up with his bottom on the floor! A polite word with the proprietor saw the problem fixed before our second night, when we exchanged him for another relative! My husband - and cousin got his bed. On the subject of children - this place is not really suitable, take care with the windows these are sash windows, dont leave toddlers and small children unattended they could climb up and fall into the street if you open these windows and turn your back. Elderly people or those with mobility problems will find the stairs difficult. Not accessible for wheelchair users.
Very noisy on a Friday night, also traffic noise. Together with snoring family members. Take good quality earplugs - the wax ones you can drive right down your ear canals!!!
Wonderful power showers with copious supply of hot water, liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner. NO HAIRDRYERS IN EVIDENCE
Breakfast. Cooked breakfast inc. at small cafe across the street. The 'continental' breakfast provided in your wardrobe is nothing more than a choice between cornflakes or weetabix, a cold bread roll jam and butter from the fridge in your wardrobe. A half litre of milk is provided there to. Sachets of tea, coffee and sugar with travel kettle are on the desk. Good sized
Plasma television is affixed to the wall.
Use the little deli. behind the pub. Lovely food - toasties, paninis, salads, cake, chips and home made pie and lasagne. Good coffee. Sit in or out. Pub also does food. If you like to drink water, keep bottled water in the fridge - London water tastes horrible - but then I am from Wales and used to drinking good mountain water.
Pub keeps strictly to licensing hours. No service after last orders and you are encouraged to drink up and leave or take your unfinished drinks up stairs to your room. Best to buy in your own supplies and use your fridge!!!
Very difficult to find staff outside opening hours but when you do they are kind and helpful. Access to pub lounge is locked ouside of opening hours also.
Well priced, acceptable accommodation in Richmond as the hotels are very expensive. Only 4 rooms which our extended family booked out for the weekend of my sons wedding. The Registry Office is just 5 minutes down the road.
Parking is on street behind the pub which is positioned on an arrowhead juction between Sheen Road and a minor road to the rear.. Single yellow lines. Ok for evenings or weekends. Can get a bit congested You can ask them to reserve parking at a small charge. Not sure how this works as these are public roads.. we werent offered any permits!!! There is no designated car park or car parking spaces.
All in all good value - best if you are a sound sleeper!
