The Dukes Head Inn
Ranked #4 of 15 Richmond B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 March 2013

The Dukes Head is in a perfect location only 5 mins from the centre of Richmond but in a quiet residential area. We stayed in a triple room which was very clean and a perfect size for our two night stay.
Breakfast is very good cereals fruit juice and a cooked breakfast with toast and free papers. A cooked breakfast being included in the price is a rarity in other hotels in Richmond.
The pub food is also excellent, try their burgers you won't be disappointed.

The staff and owners are very friendly and make you feel very welcome, The Dukes Head would be my preferred place to stay in Richmond on future trips.
PS I didn't hear any planes!!!!

We stayed in a triple room together with our four year old son. The furniture of the room is a bit outdated, but it was clean. There is an extra radiator in the room, which came in very handy due to the cold temperatures. You could not hear any noise from the pub on the ground floor, but the planes flying into Heathrow can prevent you from falling asleep, if you do not use ear plugs... Breakfast is great, full English, porridge, cereals, etc., all there. The location is perfect, walking distance from Richmond city centre and station and close to many good restaurants. Recommendable!

The Dukes Head Inn is a wonderful little B&B in Richmond. I stayed a few nights while in London on business and enjoyed it. Wonderful food and great staff - extremely friendly. The pub atmosphere is a mix of local and visitors and the service is professional and fast. If you enjoy being close to the action but like your peace and quiet, book at stay at The Dukes Head Inn.

Convenient to bus routes and the Richmond train station.

Stayed there one night to visit Richmond. It is very central but at the same time it is not on a main road so it is pretty quiet and you can get a decent sleep until early morning when you can hear the planes in and out of Heathrow (which I guess you would hear anywhere else in Richmond too). Bathroom is very small but serviceable and breakfast is good. Excellent value.

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed here for a week from 6 October 2012. We very much enjoyed our stay. Our twin room was spacious, warm, and spotless. It had ample wardrobe space, and the beds were very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and accomodating, and we loved our cooked breakfasts in the morning! We are looking forward to returning for another one-week stay next month.

Room Tip: If you are staying here on a Friday night, you might try and get a room that does not face on to the...

The room décor was a little dated but it was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small but serviceable and there was plenty of hot water. The full English breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of toast, tea and coffee and a selection of papers to browse. The staff were very friendly and engaged freely with the customers. It was good value for the price and only 5-10 minutes to the train station. It is a good base for going back in to London or going to Ascot - it is on Heathrow's flight path; they woke me up at 6.00 and every 2 minutes after that. The car park is small but they will squeeze you in if they can. All in all a good value B&B. I would have given 5/5 if the rooms were upgraded.

We stayed in a triple room. It was quite old fashioned decor and could do with a refurb but it was clean and comfortable and for the price, it was excellent value. The food is very good. We had lunch and dinner in the pub and the food far exceeded our expectations. Freshly cooked, tasty and again great value. The breakfast in the morning was superb too. The service was friendly and efficient. Overall, couldn't really fault it - as long as you don't mind how dated the rooms aer (though I see they have refurbed some of them already). It's only about 7 minutes walk to the shops and 10 mins to the bridge and river - brilliantly central. We did manage to park in their tiny carpark, but it is small!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room
