We booked a suite at The Petersham for our wedding night. We thought this would be a treat and top off our special day. We have 3 small children and the room was perfect for us (316) as it had a separate bedroom for 2 of the children and plenty of room for the cot in our bedroom. Our very...

Amazing views from restaurants over Thames. Chairs were comfortable, tablelinen was spotless. Plentiful waiters Fresh tea and green tea. Tasty sandwiches. Lots of cakes!!! Scones were scrumptious. Our only criticism would have to be that where our table was, it was like sitting in a corridor that all waiters and other diners had to take to get to the other...

Having booked a weekend away in beautiful Richmond-upon-Thames, we were beyond disappointed to experience a night without sleep which made us dress before dawn and drive home to West Sussex. Children screaming in the corridor outside out room was not good but, with no apology when we departed, we shall not be returning!

My mum booked this hotel on Christmas day as a treat for my 25th Birthday. We arrived around 3pm and was immediately told we had to pay another £12 per head for breakfast on top of the £150 we had already paid for the room. When we got to our room it was small, dark and cold. We opened the...

Birthday lunch for my sister and her husband. The meal was superb, waiting staff extremely courteous and very well trained. A memorable meal cannot praise them enough. It is pricey but worth it. My sister and I chose the Dover Sole, exquisite. The men had the Duck. We also had the house champagne which was excellent without breaking the bank....

It must be hard to keep a hotel like this. A fortune to heat and lots of maintenance. They seem to be keeping up though... although the rooms are cool in the winter (which I like). Nice high ceilings, flat TV and dark quiet room. Staff weren't great and bar prices were a bit mad, even for London. Demanding a...

My 3rd visit to The Petersham booked via booking.com for a one night stay at £119 for two with breakfast. Nice hotel, elegant beautiful but I think really depends on room. Restaurant was closed due to refurb but we were eating at The Bingham so didn't bother us. We were upgraded to river view delux double which was a good...

Having lived in Richmond years back it was a pleasure to be back in this idyllic suburb of London, especially for New Year’s Eve. And what better way to end the old year / welcoming a new one at the distinguished Petersham Hotel! The hotel itself is extremely elegant and has an astonishing view of the River Thames. The service...

As many people have remarked, this hotel occupies a superb position and the building is itself strikingly attractive. It's when you go inside that the problems start. From the start there was trouble: some sort of convention going on, but no signage so that our booking in was interrupted by irate visitors or delegates trying to find the meeting room....
