    Two day stay over weekend. Hotel not too busy. Located nicely between Richmond and Kingston. Impressive building. Staff very top draw attentive but a shade too over bearing! Several meals all well prepared and beautifully presented. Prices acceptable although we were off budget as special purpose to our visit. Car parking no issue.

    Offered upgrade to River for one night of the two. Not really on to switch rooms so useless suggestion. Not given reason why one night more puzzling as empty hotel! For a small extra fee we could have purchased. Felt little dismissed by attitude at check in although all conducted pleasantly but something was lacking

    Room frankly rather smaller thank anticipated overlooking woodland at rear. Virtually no hanging or storage space making room even more cramped, they seem to expect guests to be one nighters! Bed fine. Bathroom modern but the design clumsy and not customer orientated, as with many revamps do the designers or any staff member actually try the shower or loo to see if the ergonomics works! Here it does not as limbo dancer posture to use shower! Heating too powerfully and unable to regulate radiators! Feeling like a lobster middle of night managed to remove front piece of radiator cover and turn down but still needed windows wide open to get to normal! Not four star here!

    Beautiful staircase to upper floors. Impressive. Slight downside so rather drunk guests in lower lounge noise carried upwards.

    All said really enjoyed our stay but next time room at front towards the river! Staff try to be slightly less formal and stiff!

    Room Tip: Back area peaceful but try for front and river

    Having been here for breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea regularly for years when living locally, now it's our home from home living abroad. The rooms are traditional and the restaurant consistently to be excellent, on top of it all, the most amazing view of the river Thames, simply the best!

    Arriving at The Petersham you get a feeling that you've arrived at somewhere great. The external impression is great and first impressions as you walk in are good.
    There's lots of good staff looking after you - actually probably too many at breakfast as every part seems to be delivered by a different person!
    The room we had, 103, is fine. It looks over the car park and is tucked away in a quiet corner. It's small and the bathroom needs a refresh as areas of the paint are tired.
    Like all London hotels they charge far too much for drinks - £6.50 for a bottle of beer - so drink elsewhere!

    Short walk to Richmond town centre so very good location.

    Wow! We stayed in the honeymoon suite on our wedding night and this hotel was just beautiful. It overlooks Petersham meadows and the Thames, surely one of the most beautiful views in England. I live locally and have eaten in the restaurant before, the waiting staff and food are excellent and the breakfast was very good indeed.
    When we got back from our wedding the management had left a bottle of champagne and macarons in the room which we ate on the balcony chatting over the wedding.

    Great all round hotel for pleasure and for business. Loads of parking. Amazing views of the river Thames make it a special location. Also do a great Sunday lunch for the family . Definitely recommend it.
