richard c wrote a review 7 Jul
This hotel has a real presence , overlooking the Thames , we stayed in a classic room which was ok , the room was little small , bathroom was a bit cramped , where the taps dripped over the vanity unit .There was no air conditioning , room was warm during the summer months. However , there is free parking , staff were amazing and the views and peaceful location make it great value . The breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: We chose a woodland view but the view over the car park was equally stunning as it gives views...

We’ve been coming here for many years and always enjoy our visits. This is an independent hotel of the highest quality and is in a beautiful setting overlooking the Thames and the Petersham Meadows. Rooms are excellent, dining room outstanding and staff always humorous and attentive. Prices are reasonable for a hotel of this standard so we’ll be back and can highly recommend it.

Just stayed in the Petersham Hotel in an area of London we have not visited - what great hotel just minutes from the Thames. Breakfast was very good and we got a mid week break deal which was very reasonable.

Visited on the occasion of my wife's 60th birthday. Dinner for six in the Alcove just off the main restaurant and an overnight stay. The hotel has beautiful views over Petersham meadows and a meandering part of the Thames. Located within walking distance of the beautiful town of Richmond and its River walks. The food was fantastic and all the hotel team friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed the event and am grateful to the team with all the help they afforded.

We booked a Superior room (it has a partial river view). But I think Superior is a misnomer. The bed is just a standard double (but the room isn't large enough to sustain anything bigger). There was no mini fridge. There was no air conditioning (and it was a hot night). We couldn't get access to the main terrace because there was a wedding (one of the reasons we booked was to have at least a drink out there). The dining room was also booked out. The room service stops at 9pm.. seriously?! The TV in the room was limited (no USB socket even) And if you do want to ring reception you can expect to wait many minutes to get an answer, and then you can hang up and try again. Luckily Richmond town is a stroll away and we had a lovely late lunch/early dinner at the Ivy Cafe, and the local pub at the foot of the hill is pleasant enough (so they got our business). Overall I would say the entire stay was underwhelming.

Dear Christian, I was disappointed to read the review of your recent stay with us and am very sorry that you found the experience underwhelming. Our hotel was built in 1865 and has the charm and character of that period although unfortunately that does entail some smaller rooms and does not benefit from air-conditioning. From your comments I am presuming you visited us over a recent weekend when the hotel and our restaurant was fully booked, I regret that you had to find an alternative restaurant to dine. I am sorry that we did not provide you with a memorable visit to The Petersham but should you wish to give me a call directly I will do my best to find a way to make up for your disappointment. With my kind regards, Jonathan Lowrey General Manager.
