Frenchgate Guest House
Ranked #22 of 51 Richmond B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2009

We have visited this guest house twice and found both times a pleasurable experience. The location is good, affording a base to explore the Dales, and Richmond itself is lovely. We found the proprietors both welcoming and helpful. Our room was to a very good standard and so was the service we received.

We would recommend this guest house to other users.

Despite what others have written about this B & B, we had a totally excellent experience here. Ralph greeted us at the door with a wide smile and was very friendly. In fact he was super friendly and smiling during our whole stay.

Our room was on the top floor and had an excellent view, couch to sit on, big bathroom with lots of hot water. The beds were very comfortable.

After many days of walking we had had enough of full English breakfasts and asked for something a bit different to eat and were totally accommodated. The food was great.

The view from the breakfast room was really nice and expansive.

I don't share any of the negatives that others have mentioned. Our stay was just right. I would encourage others to stay at 66 Frenchgate as well!

Frenchgate 66 is First Class. Definately NOT for teenagers so I can't imagine why you booked to go there?? I have stayed there several times ,also in the bedroom you mention. There wasn't a lot of noise from the dining room when I stayed there but as I dont go on holiday to lie in bed there wasn't any problem there.
I am a walker like many of the guests who stay there so to be "up and atom" is the main priority.
I am also a GRANNY so banging door's doesn't bother me.Even so I wouldn't do it as I would consider others. I really think your comments are a bit harsh and let me assure you I am no fuddy duddy. Since I retired I have travelled the world and have slept in everything from a one person tent in Nepal to the Burj al Arab in Dubai.
All I look for is somewhere to lay my head at the end of the day and have better things to do than nit pick.

Stayed with the kids in the adjoining family rooms. Adult's room a bit ' temporary ' with a curtain across the dinning room window, so don't expect to be undisturbed past the start of breakfast and make sure the curtain is closed! Also expect a bit of the ' don't forget this is our house mentality', in fact they have a notice up pointing it out, so you kind of feel like your visiting Granny on your best behaviour. For God's sake don't bang a door and forget any thoughts of a quickie whilst the kids are out at the shop!
Don't have them "pencil you in", for another visit, cos when you call to confirm and find out the dates are wrong, if they have your details from a previous visit they will charge your account with a "50% deposit", without informing you! Even if you had no confirmed reservation and called them five weeks before they had you " pencilled in"!!!!!
So sorry, however nice the sweetie jar looks, unless you like sour plooms, give it a miss.

i have stayed at this guest house a few times now - all the rooms are realy lovely - spotlessly clean many with beautiful views and lots of nice touches.The view from the dining room is amazing and you get a fab breakfast - most people go for the full english but i like the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.Ralph and shiela seem to think of every little detail and really make everybody welcome . You can even get your washing done, and packed lunches. all the rooms have mini-fridge and hair dryer, I have stayed in a lot of hotels that are not as good ( and more expensive ). Location's good too as you can easily walk in to richmond,highly recomended
