We stayed in the Emperor Suite at this hotel. The room was accessed up the original stone staircase in a hall covered in murals and ceiling paintings. Inside was one of the largest high ceilinged rooms you will find in London other than in a 5-star hotel. A beautiful antique 4-poster bed which was actually very comfortable, and a wonderful view through the garden to the River Thames made the room fabulous. A quick walk along the to bath in the morning and then into breakfast in the most quirky dining room I have visited, in subtle shades of pink but with paintings on every panel around the room, it takes your breath away. The continental breakfast was quite adequate, but the cooked breakfast was extremely good and well worth the extra £6. The staff were all very friendly. If you want to explore Richmond, Kew and the surrounding area, do try booking this room for the night - you won't be sorry.
