The Castle House
Ranked #2 of 52 Richmond B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is a fantastic B&B and very spacious being ideally situated just off the Castle Walk and in the Town Centre.

The owners Gordon & Sue are very welcoming, breakfast is very good and the whole experience is topped off by the quirky decoration. The building has many original features.

Originally bred in Richmond, this B+B comes highly recommended.

We can highly recommend The Olde Castle House. Sue and Gordon are helpful and friendly, without being overbearing. They know what visitors need and offer extra luxuries too. We had the freedom to decide what time to have breakfast and to decide what to eat on the day - unlike some more 'controlling' B&Bs we have stayed in! We felt relaxed and at home.

Sue and Gordon are wonderful hosts and make you feel so very welcome! The rooms are lovely and the roll top bath makes for a relaxing treat. The breakfasts are fantastic too! Our 2nd visit and we will be back again!

We stayed in Richmond on a a lovely sunny weekend and we're given a really warm welcome at The Olde Castle Inn. There are some lovely touches in the room - sherry and chocolates. The room was very tidy and the bed was really comfortable. The hotel is centrally located so we were a short walk away from all the restaurants and pubs. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice. Parking is a little tight, but you'll find that in most of Richmond.Would happily stay again.

Sue and Gordon seem to enjoy people and sharing their home. Gordon, an artist, and Sue are warm, friendly and have lovely taste.
Our room was sparkling clean and beautifully decorated.The little extras in the room were welcome after a long day of travel. Wine and chocolates were an added pleasure. The bathroom was beautifully remodeled, the bed was comfortable, and the bath and bed linens of the best quality.
The floors slant in places so be careful where you set your glass down. The stairs are steep. I'm not sure if there are handicapped-accessible rooms or not. The sheer age of the house might not have allowed for it.
Breakfast is fit for a king, with a full English breakfast offered as well as a myriad of additional choices. We'd love to return someday. I only hope they'll have room for us once word gets out about just what a gem The Olde Castle is.

Room Tip: I believe there are 3+ stories so if stairs are difficult for anyone in your party, be sure and ment...

What a place, a roll top bath and king size sleigh bed! A bottle of wine, chocs and sherry in our room. Breakfast was so very special and Sue was lovely. I would stay every night if I could!

Wonderful house, beautiful rooms with stylish bathroom, clean towels, bathrobes, toiletries, even a glass of sherry. Large breakfast, sans grease, in a room that's a step back in time. Can't recommend the place highly enough.

Room Tip: Room 1 was perfect.
