January 2014, We were looking for a B & B near the Burns Night Supper & Scottish Country Dance Ball that we were attending. We needed a place to stay that had a strict “No Pets” policy as I am severely allergic to dogs. Found Richmond Place on a 411 Info search and called the Inn to inquire about the pets policy and to see about availability. The innkeeper, Glen, gave me the information I needed and I booked for one night. Glen was friendly and agreeable to our desire to arrive early afternoon. We arrived and Glen was there to meet us and help with our bags, check us in and ask us about our breakfast preferences. Our room with private bath was very clean and color coordinated. There were plenty of towels and pillows and it is nice to have a mini fridge in the room. The downstairs breakfast area was small, but nice. The breakfast was very well prepared and the servings were generous - Glen is a good coo!. The coffee & tea pots were refilled promptly. We left breakfast delightfully stuffed with good food. When we spoke to Glen about the architecture of the building he confirmed our idea that it was from the mid 1800’s. He said that he has started the process of restoring the inn, room by room, to it’s original stature. We will be watching his restoration process over the years to come as we are planning to stay at the Richmond Place Inn every time we are in Buffalo.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Affordable and comfortable one of the most conveniently located places, Richmond Place has it all. It is strategically situated in between the majestic Niagara Falls and not to forget close to all the major shopping centers so that there is plenty to take back home. There is a delicate blend of modern convenience and a home-like atmosphere. The best part of this place, however is the sumptuous warm breakfast that is available every morning. If you're feeling homesick and yearning for some home food then this is as good as it gets. ... more less
