“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Considering it was the cheapest deal I could find in Richmond it was fine as I only needed to sleep there. Decor was tired and the bathroom in need of an upgrade but the shower worked well and I have stayed in smaller spaces. TV screen was a good size- didn't need binoculars. Staff were extremely helpful- offering to take my luggage to my room. Chose it for proximity to station but in the end got taxi to the airport (too much luggage). Taxi organised for me and even rang mobile to tell me it was arriving. So all fine.

I stayed in a single en-suite room with an American single bed. Bed is lovely - very big for a single. Room was very clean and more than adequate. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a more than adequate continental style - choice of cereal, toast and yoghurt with a very helpful member of staff making sure you are okay. Only downside is flight path of planes from Heathrow - but you get that all across Richmond - just takes a bit of getting used to for a visitor. Will definitely stay here again. Very close to train/tube station quick journey into the city and Kew Gardens.

We had the double room near the reception. The cleanest of the room was a lot to de desired. I wrote hello on the dust on the headboard. The bedside tables we had to wipe the dust of them. Didn't feel I could have a shower tiles on the floor all cracked and the bathroom looked out to the road. The noise that we heard from our room couldn't sleep with staff from the hotel going in and out and also because the noise upstairs. The walls very flimsy. This is an old Victorian house converted into a hotel in Richmond. Stay in the travel lodge better value for money. We paid £80 wish we hadn't listen to me I'm not joking.Also we just had a room they wanted £20 for breakfast say no more

Room Tip: Don't have the room behind reception

A new job has me based in Richmond and as the hotel round the corner I can't fault it. If you want all the trimmings then this isn't the hotel for you. If all you went is a comfy bed, good breakfast and a relaxing stay then this is for you. Ok, so it's under the Heathrow approach and the first plane of the morning can waken you, but this is a minor point.
Well worth the money. Will be staying here a lot this year.

Two night stay for rugby match at nearby Twickenham. A comfortable, convenient hotel near the station and within easy walking distance of the stadium (although there was an excellent shuttle bus service on the day). Breakfast was cereal and toast, but plenty of cafes a ten- minute walk away offering full English. My only slight grump was the very small washbasin in the shower room. Pleasant staff and free wifi. Nice big flatscreen telly.

Hotel is very well located in the heart of Richmond. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Staff was attentive and helpful. We stayed in a big room street side for 1 night.
The bed was comfortable and the room clean. Bathroom could have done with some paint but was otherwise clean.

I needed a hotel close to central Richmond. This is about 5 minutes' walk from the station. I had a single room in the basement. It was clean, quiet and spacious. It had everything I needed. As other reviewers have said, the breakfast is not up to much but it's adequate. I would stay at this hotel again.
