4/10 Fair

Photos are deceiving as rooms are of a very low standard, mix matched bed bases and dirty wood chip walls and bathrooms are dirty . Nothing matching . Very run down .

2/10 Poor

The hotel is very run down, there was a strong smell of mould and damp. During the night me and my partner was constantly being bitten by flees or bed bugs. The room's are old fashioned and in need of updating. The shower never got passed luke warm. We wasn't expecting miracles but for £109 For one night we thought that was a bit steep.

Very disappointing.
If I could sum this place up in one word, it was (awful). The shower unit didn’t work. I tried having a bath which was near impossible, the hot water was scalding hot,when I tried turning on the cold tap there was very little water coming out the tap…

Staying at the Richmond
The staff were friendly and welcoming, unfortunately the hotel is in need of total renovation, our first room was not what we expected needing redecorating and a deep clean. Also doors being slammed all night we got no sleep. We told the manager and he moved us promptly to a cleaner and quieter room. With no restaurant facilities meant having to go out for all meals not what we expected. A bit disappointing in all.

Good location but hotel very dated and in need of refurbishment. Parking has to be pre-booked. Window in room didn’t lock and shower was appalling. Only stayed for one night and that was enough.

10/10 Exceptional

Mohamed in reception made us feel very welcome. So did his young colleague - I didn't catch his name. We were there for 5 nights and had two rooms. There was not much car parking space but we were able to park for most of our stay on site. The rooms were clean and the shower worked perfectly. The hotel's decor could use a lick of paint but other than that we all had an enjoyable stay.
