“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

I have stayed at the hotel many times now and every time I'm welcomed back by David and his team, the rooms are modern and very clean. The hotel is set in the middle of Richmond which is a lovely market town and is only a stones throw to Catterick.

The food is also amazing and offer a great range of locally produced food and beers.

Looking forward to my next visit in October.

Room Tip: You can hear the clock chime in Richmond depending on which room you in !!

Our first stay over 2 nights. David and his team went out of their way to make our stay memorable. This is a little gem set in a beautiful Yorkshire town. The hotel is close to the centre of Richmond, the welcome was very warm - thank you Rebecca. The accommodation comfortable (the bed was sublime) and quiet. The food was very well presented and of an extremely high quality. Thank you Paul for being so attentive. Thank you David for your superb wine selection. We will definately return - as soon as we can!!!!

Room Tip: Tokyo room has a very comfortable bed!

This was our second stay in 12 months at The Frenchgate, both times in the Mousey Thompson suite. The bed in this room takes some beating - phenomenally comfortable, and the room as a whole works very well. The food as previously was really very good indeed, with plenty to choose from on an interesting and affordable wine list. Very friendly service and great attention to detail from the owner makes staying here a no brainer when in the Richmond area. We will return again next year for sure.

We have recently stayed at the Frenchgate for a Saturday night staying in the Mousey Thompson suite . The room was excellent with a huge comfortable bed which gave a wonderful nights sleep . The food was tremendous and I would think probably the best in Richmond . The only gripe would be the time we waited before being seated for dinner which seemed like an eternity . We went with the first class Wine flight which was an experience which we were pleased to undertake but in hindsight it was expensive for what it was . The exclusive wines could be found , available to the public, at reasonable cost on the internet . The proprietor was a character and he certainly knew his wines but could have been seen as overbearing by some although we managed to survive the experience . All in all a very good experience but not sure if it was worth £300 for one night .

We visited the hotel on the weekend of the 21st July and had a lovely time. We have stayed at the hotel a couple of times over the past three years and it has lost none of its attractions. The rooms are excellent, the staff attentive and the food wonderful. The new conservatory and patio area is a great place to sit for early evening drinks. Certainly the best place to stay in Richmond. a big thank you to all of the staff.
