Very Good
Poor choice in shops, little or no independents. Over populated in cafes. Very clean streets, good standards. Beautiful location. Too many planes overhead, starts at 3.30am over the week-end. Lovely walks

We loved the park, went to a wedding in the wedding centre which we enjoyed. We ate at the Rose of York. The room in the hotel would benefit if a phone was installed. There was no wifi during our visit. The staff at the Rose of York were very pleasant and kind. They were fantastic

Richmond is a wonderful town, full of its own attractions, shops, restaurants and bars to suit every pocket and expectation. And the overland rail reaches Central London within a few minutes

Makes a nice long weekend destination with a wide selection of eateries, some shopping and much scenery to enjoy. The architecture is mainly Georgian through to late Victorian in a very historic area. Be prepared to walk locally.

Parking a problem. Best to leave the car at the Hotel and walk. Centre of town and the river just a short distance away.

Recommended in Richmond upon Thames

Walk along the thames to Petersham nursery, take the little ferry to Twickenham to visit Orleon house or Marple hill house. Walk into beautiful Richmond park

Very nice area to stay in and easy to access with a car from the Motorway. It is only an hour tube ride into central London.

Small city shopping but with nice apartment store and lovely food market style shop/cafe

Reasonably priced eating out in comfortable surroundings e.g. Carluccios

Adesso - Italian / Sicilian Restaurant at the bottom of Richmond Hill

It combines country and citylife, history and charm

Returning to room and walks along the river thames
