We celebrated my birthday here this year with a dinner party for 22 friends in the Terrace Suite. From the initial enquiry through to the service and food on the night, everything was exceptional. We arrange many events and I have to say that Terry and the team at the Petersham are great. All requests and queries dealt with -...

I stayed at the Petersham for business, but was able to enjoy the delicious food, the quaint and cozy bedroom and the beautiful view of the Thames. It's a great location within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The hotel is historically beautiful and picturesque. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

My partner & I stayed overnight as a celebration. We had an excellent time. The hotel is superb. The location is stunning, the building and its furnishings are first rate, and the service was excellent (friendly & efficient without being obtrusive). The room was well appointed, and the bed so comfortable that it was a wrench to check out! Breakfast...

We treated ourselves for a night away in Richmond. We chose the Petersham for its location and design. Sitting above the Thames we had pre ordered a room with a river view. We arrived early but as usual we could not enter the room until 14.00. So had a coffee before heading into Richmond..at £4.40 a cup. We noticed straight...

I had booked this hotel for a night away to celebrate my Birthday, having read the reviews and the hotel being a four star me and my girlfriend were really looking forward to staying here. Having turned up we were impressed by the Hotel, the grounds and the room. However this was extremely short lived, we had booked an evening...

Thankfully your review will be read in conjunction with the other genuine reviews and therefore in context. It was never clear from the moment of arrival who anybody was and to whom we were talking to. Certainly I never spoke to the occupant of the room, as the caller to me on Tuesday afternoon clearly stated that he was calling...

I use this hotel on the odd visit back to the Richmond area when i'm going to be arriving back late in the evening after the last train has left- having moved house from the area last year. The classic room and junior suite with river view are very pleasant.Rooms with the pictoresque view of Richmond meadows and the meandering...

A beautifully appointed hotel in a fine location with sweeping views of the Thames and within easy walking distance of Richmond Park. The wifi crashed shortly after my arrival and was still not working by the following morning. If a hotel wishes to attract business clients, it must find a service provider that can give a good response to wifi...

We took our friends there for lunch and it was a special occasion. Enjoying good food and wine, while enjoying the views over the Thames. The staff and service could not be faulted. After, a pleasant walk along the Thames towards Richmond and back. Hopefully it will not be long before we experience the Petersham again

Loved our stay at The Petersham. We had a river view room with small balcony. It was beautiful. Our deal included a two course meal in the restaurant. This was a fantastic experience - the food and service was excellent. It was easy to walk into Richmond or just walk along The Thames. Can't praise it enough.

This is a quality location - just outside Richmond town centre and on a rise that affords a great view out from the hotel bar/restaurant areas towards the Thames. Rather importantly, it does have a reasonable car parking space, although the road up to the hotel can get very congested. Arguably, the hotel might be described as 'traditional', but in...
