This was my last night's accommodation after a 6-day walk, and it was a great way to end. The room was spacious, light and comfortable and the bathroom and shower were nice too. It was lovely to have a lounge downstairs to sit in too. The breakfast was the best of the week with a really imaginative menu of choices. The location is really handy for the centre of Richmond. I'll definitely stay here again if I am back in the area. Many thanks.

The room had everything you needed, bed and bedding was exceptional. Breakfast amazing. Couldn't be any more helpful. Charm galore. It's a historic house, on a quiet cobblestone street but 7 minutes from the main action.

Just off the centre of Richmond, and within easy reach of restaurants etc. A building with real history which has kept it's features. Very welcoming and attentive owners that clearly take pride n what they do. Breakfast was a treat - making a choice from the menu wasn't easy as it all sounded good.

We spent a wonderful day and night at the Willance House while hiking the Coast-to-Coast Walk. It's a beautiful historic house that has been impeccably maintained and is spotlessly clean. The house is situated in a very good location near the city center but on a quiet historic street. The room was clean, large, bright and airy rooms. The hosts -- Colin and Andrea -- are phenomenal. Very accommodating, excellent breakfast, incredible laundry. We had a pile of really dirty clothes after 10 days of hiking with no access to laundry. We hiked in early to try and get to a commercial laundry before they closed, but would be forced to get a late start the following day - a 22 mile hike - to pick up our clothes. Andrea was somehow able to get them beautifully clean and dry - by 9 PM the same day we arrived. Having clean laundry for the rest of the trip was an incredible gift! I would highly recommend staying here -- book early!

Already replied once. Willance House is an immaculate characterful house in a quiet cobbled street very near the centre of town. The room, the welcome and breakfast were outstanding. If you visit Richmond, this is the place you should stay!

A wonderful place to stay. This was our third visit to this guest house and hope to be back again this year. Immaculate house and so much to choose for breakfast! The location is ideal in the centre of town and there are plenty of places to eat but we always visit the French restaurant Rustique for excellent food.

This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. Lovely house - one of the oldest in Richmond - very comfortably renovated by the current owners. Its not ultra modern which wouldn't have fitted in with the age of the house but ultra comfortable - the sitting room is something you don't get very often and a great asset if you get bad weather. It is very well placed in the town as its just a stones throw from the market place in Frenchgate - which is a lovely road full of Georgian terraced houses. The owners are very warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay wonderful for us. They are very knowledgeable about the area and can provide you with walking tips as well as info on good places to eat and visit. The breakfast is the best we have had anywhere - its a credit to them. Would have no hesitation on recommending this B&B and would stay again if we go back to the area. It feels more like staying with family than staying in a B&B and we cannot thank Sandra and Colin enough xxx

Sandra and Colin run a wonderful establishment with friendly care. We stayed just one night and were welcomed into their beautiful cosy home. It is ideally situated for exploring the shops and restaurants of Richmond. We slept really well in a vast comfortable bed. Breakfast was simply superb! Fresh and freshly cooked. Nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended!
