“A wonderful weekend at a fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

A great time was had at this beautiful old town house hotel, myself and my partner were in the cottage which was next to the main hotel with our own private entrance. The service is second to none with the friendly helpful staff at hand. The food was wonderful with a 6 course meal from their award winning chef a magical experience. Overall a great time at a lovely hotel in a beautiful location.

On arrival up a quiet cobbled street, close to the heart of Richmond and at the gateway to the Dales, we found The Frenchgate, and what a find. You know when you are sat at home, wondering, hoping to find that place that is just right for that special few days away, the brain is working overtime to pick the right place.....well let me assure youn you won't be dissapointed if our experience is anything to go on. From the moment arrived we were made to feel at home. The staff we incredibly curteous and attentive and the modern room with ultra contempory bathroom was a great suprise. Dinner was wonderful, a real experince. We went for 'the flight' and let our incredibly knowledgeable host talk us through a wine for each course which was a great experince, in fact we dined in for the second night of our stay too which was real testimant to our experince on our first night. An all round winnern you can go wrong. Stop reading reviews now and just book it, any bad reviews that may have been posted are, in our opinion, grossly misjudged, we had a special experince thanks to all at the Frenchgate hotel!!!

Just stayed for the dinner bed and breakfast offer of £69 in January, we were greeted by Clare, the wonderful ever so helpful receptionist. She has first hand knowledge of the area and took us to our room to show us all the gadgets, heated slate floor in the bathroom, temperature controlled heating in the room, super large tv opposite the 7ft, yes 7ft bed and fantastic lighting. We were then advised that as we had booked for evening dinner at 7.30pm, that pre dinner drinks will be served in the lounge.

After a leisurely walk around Richmond and a lovely hot shower we dressed for the meal. We were once again greeted by Clare who escorted us to the lounge. Here we met David the owner, he assisted us with our choices of the food and wine, throughout the evening David and his team could not do enough for us, the food is to die for, we have eaten in some top eateries but this is world class eating at a fraction of the cost.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend with first class service. We will definately be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the London room, 7ft bed, heated wet room with a shower big enough for 2 people!!

I booked the Mousey Thompson suite for my husbands 50th birthday and we weren't disappointed. The fire was lit, champagne on ice, very romantic. The remote control for the shower was fun - shower was hot and running before I left the bed. The evening meal was wonderful. The steak was cooked to perfection and wine pairing a must. David was an amazing host, staff brilliant.

My partner stayed here in between Christmas and New year, we had recently just had a baby (the week previous!) and wanted some much needed R and R! And boy did we get it!!!!
As we have 2 other children and a babysitter already in Richmond this was perfect, we rang and booked the night prior and was introduced to David the Hotels owner, he wowed us with his description of the hotel and offered us the honeymoon suite with it being a special night away... We jumped at the chance. When we arrived the next day David was there to personally greet us which also impressed us then showed us to the most "out of this world" room!! From the moment we opened the room it took our breath away, the most impressive bed which was exceptionally comfy to the fire with sitting area and then the bathroom which had a remote control operated shower?! The suite even had a wihirpool bath in too ( although we didn't use). David and his team even added little touches in the bathroom of large white fluffy towels and the white company toiletries.
We had opted to dine in the restaurant which was AMAZING!! From the choice of food to presentation, we were totally amazed!
The overall impression was Fantastic and will defiantly be back!!!!
Thankyou for such an amazing experience and we will definitely be back!!
