Of the 3 nearby options, this one is the most upscale one. Small, but acceptable rooms. There is a small lift/elevator (not unimportant when carrying your bags). Good breakfast with individual attention. Hotel is down a very steep hill from college, which is its biggest downside. If you get a good rate, this hotel is a good choice to stay when visiting your kid at Richmond American University.

The Petersham is one of at least four good hotels in Richmond upon Thames, which is around a 20 minute train journey from central London, and handy for Hampton Court and Kew Gardens. However, the hotel is around 15 minutes walk from Richmond Station. Our room was comfortable although we were disappointed with the view of woods. If you stay here do ask for a room with a river view. The restaurant is good, but pricey (main courses from around £25-£42) and the wine list is impressive with prices to match.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

Combining impeccable service with a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere - a weekend away at the Petersham becomes a real treat. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and thoughtfully cater for guest requirements. The superb quality of the restaurant is not to be missed. Easy access to London and Richmond Park on its doorstep, makes the Petersham an excellent choice for any visitor to London.

If you do business in richmond, the petersham is conveniently located. Only issue is that the wireless network does not work, and it has no gym. On the positive weather permitting it allows nice jogging outside.

Room Tip: Make sure there is internet in your room

PetershamGroup, General Manager at The Petersham Hotel, responded to this review, 20 February 2012
Your review is much appreciated and I am sorry to hear that you suffered during a recent failure of a main router for our wifi HSIA system. I am delighted that this is an unusual occurrence and if ever there is an issue with the efficiency of the system it is usually resolved within minutes.

I am pleased to announce that a new fibre optic and gateway system is being installed during March and this will double the speed and make the bandwidth shared by all users making it much more robust and efficient.
