We highly recommend this hotel. The staff were helpful and very friendly. Parking on site was great in this busy part of London. The breakfast was second to none. One of the best we have had in many years. The room was clean & comfortable.

An overnight stay (room price) slightly above what we would normally pay, but still reasonable for London prices, especially just before Xmas. A fabulous venue, classy without the sassy - as we walked in, we could have been stepping into a 'traditional hotel at Xmas' movie scene! Met with immaculately presented but down to earth, kind and helpful staff, the room was of excellent standard and hotel location ideal for exploring Richmond and surrounding areas / London. Would definitely recommend.
