We used the Petersham as a base for the weekend of our wedding in early April - from dinner on the Friday night through to the busy-ness of wedding preparations on the Saturday morning and check out on the Sunday, nothing was too much trouble & we were so pleased to have made the decision to base ourselves & our...

My wife and I stayed at the Petersham to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. Since we don't live in Richmond anymore we thought we'd go back to our old stompin' ground to see some friends and remember old times. We simply had to stay at The Petersham since it's where we stayed the night of our wedding! We decided not...

This property is ideal for parents of students at the nearby American University. I've stayed here twice now, most recently departing yesterday. My room was a delux, Thames view room & pretty much perfect! I suggest opting for the deluxe room,especially if more than one person will be in the room, as my prior room was very small. The king...

I know that you can get good rooms and bad rooms in a hotel but this time I got an excellent room in the Petersham and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So this fact will bias my review but well done reservations you played a blinder. However, the thing irrespective of Room type that wins for me every time is Breakfast...

Bit formal and old school. Feels a bit like family serving you rather than a polished article. But genuine for that and I frankly couldn't fault either the food or the view. Would come back again and again.

Mother's Day tea. Window table with great views over Thames. Despite it being busy we received great service and there was plenty to eat. Glass of champagne was an extra. Not rushed, so take time to relax and talk.

If you arrive at a hotel and the concierge comes out to meet and greet you you know you are in for a real treat. This is what occurred here..treated the moment we stepped on their turf like we meant something to them. The bar snacks that came with our drink at the bar were a real surprise, the room...

Booked through Booking.com and got room for £99. Reception was excellent. Room clean and cosy. Bathroom good and shower pressure excellent. Had a few drinks in the evening and breakfast. A bit pricy but about right for area. All the staff are polite helpful and professional. The only little issue is the 'optional' service charge which is added to your...

My wife and I were invited to celebrate a significant wedding anniversary, and fortunately we were not paying. The three course lunch was not cheap, but the third course certainly was. The selection of English cheeses were a disgrace and no reflection of our superb availability for choice and originality. We can now beat the French at their own game,...

Lucky me, I was treated to a 4 night stay at the Petersham hotel.This trip was a sentimental journey to my childhood haunts but with more luxury than I experienced back in the day. Our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking a copse and some building work taking place at the next door property.Fortunately this work never...
