The hotel reminds me of the 1980s. The room contained a single bed with blankets and a counterpane, so tightly tucked in that you feel as if your legs are in a vice when you get into the bed! Your only chance of a comfortable night comes from pulling out all of the tucked in bedclothes. The fitted furniture is similarly dated. Heating comes from a portable oil-filled radiator; the radiator mounted on the wall was chipped and appeared not to work. The carpet was in need of replacement.
My single room was tiny, and the walls were thin; not sure whether the occupant of the room next to mine took a particular delight in noisily slamming doors, but it made for a noisy stay.
The bathroom was clean, but in need of an update. The shower was old, but had plenty of power.
There were two separate signs warning guests not to leave the light on and the window open, for fear of midges and moths. Good advice, I'm sure, but were two signs really necessary?
The hotel feels more like a B&B; if you arrive before 7pm you have to ring a bell for admittance. There's no lift, but that didn't concern me.
The good bits were as follows:
The bed was very comfortable.
The staff were very pleasant.
Breakfast, served in a small room next to the reception, was good.
The location was excellent - right in the middle of Richmond, and walkable from everywhere you'd want to visit.
Overall, a functional and rather old fashioned hotel.
