“Tranquil, cosy and very welcoming...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

The owner makes you feel very welcome. Very helpful with suggestion etc.

Have stayed 3 times now and received the same service each time, consistent, which is nice.

The view from the Breakfast room over the town is lovely and a wee bit special.

The Breakfast is excellent, well presented with plenty of choice.

Free wi-fi in your room.

Would definitely use again.

Room Tip: Any room is good.

This is a small B&B but size and quality are markedly different.

Small in size. Big in quality.

The rooms are all very nice, spotlessly clean, warm, free wi fi, ...

Breakfast is as ordered on the order card in the room. Registration is also done in the room.

Richmond has a good supply of high quality restaurants/pubs etc.

I have commented before on the options and attractions of the area. It is a good place to visit. This B&B is a very good option. The only (very slight) negative is that parking is quite limited up the cobbled street on which the B&B is located.

Recommended for location, quality and value. YES.

2 night stay over the Christmas period was very pleasant indeed. Large, clean room with fabulous views over the Swale and Easby Abbey.
Owner 'Ralph' was a great host. Knowledgeable on the area and always on hand.
Excellent breakfast (inc black pudding) whilst looking out of a panoramic window to a huge vista of the river and beyond. One of the best views in Richmond. (I know as I grew up here)

Location is perfect. Its a short walk up a reasonable hill from the town but worth it for the view. The river is easily accessible for a walk up to the falls.
Parking can be difficult but there is a car park at the very bottom of Frenchgate next to the Church.

Would stay again.

This B&B was the perfect resting spot for us while visiting family in Richmond. The rooms were clean and comfortable and our host, Ralph did a beautiful job of taking care of us. Breakfast, which is served in a delightful conservatory with outstanding views, was always delicious and freshly prepared right on time. The rooms were comfortable and clean and refreshed every day even though our visit was right over Christmas week.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out across the river valley.

This is a little gem of a hotel with recently refurbished rooms to a very high standard.
The restaurant is really very good with delicious food served at lunch and dinner.
Located just off the town square it is in a prime location and convenient for tourists or business travellers alike.
The owner has a great character and loves to exchange his opinions on all manner of topics but especially food and drink.
