“A gem of a place”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

David and the staff gave us a wonderful welcome. We stayed with my 91 year old mother and they could not do enough to cater for her needs. The hotel, though small, is beautifully appointed and cosy and the rooms contained all we needed with a wonderfully comfortable bed which ensured several nights' good sleep. The food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast. All in all service and friendliness you rarely find in the larger hotels abounds here. We can't wait to return.

The staff at the Frenchgate were good hosts and very accommodating considering our large family had taken up almost half the hotel. The rooms were comfortable with quality furnishings and clean. The restaurant served excellent food and a breakfast perfect for recovering from the night's escapades. The Mousey Thompson suite was a delight, the oldest part of the hotel according to our host.

Room Tip: Go for the Mousey Thompson suite and ask the knowledgeable barman for some of his more unusual spiri...

David is a very welcoming, friendly & helpful host. The accommodation is well thought out & very comfortable, near the center of town, but also offers parking. The restaurant provides delicious meals. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 7 is lovely.

Warm welcome by the owner when we checked in. We were a little early but our room was ready and we appreciated assistance with our luggage. We were delighted with Napoli suite including the delightful egg bath. Very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The evening meal was very good but personally would have liked a green vegetable with the main course. Breakfast was excellent with a special mention for the home-made granola and bread. All staff were very welcoming with excellent customer service skills. The hotel is in an ideal location a short walk from the centre of Richmond.

Room Tip: Recommend the Napoli suite for a special treat.

A warm welcome was awaiting us when we checked into this ideally located hotel. We had upgraded to a superior room which was worth the small extra charge. If I was being picky I would say that breakfast was a little formal for my liking but other than that a highly recommended hotel

We stayed as a group booking overnight with customers. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the owner David very entertaining.
All three rooms we booked were lovely and the hotel is on a fairly quiet street so is peaceful. The centre of Richmond is a short walk away so ideal.
I loved the decor and we thoroughly enjoyed dinner in the restaurant at night.
We all said we would stay again. Definately recommended.

Room Tip: Napoli Room with egg bath lovely

Very warm,welcoming, professional, friendly staff whom made my all be it brief stay in Richmond a pleasurable experience. The room was wonderfull although the huge bed was wasted on me, but the bathroom was stunning.
My evening meal was fabulous, with breakfast just as enjoyable.
A very quaint, picturesque location and a wonderful base from which to explore Richmond and the surrounding area.
