The Petersham London (Surrey)

“Country house feel by the river in leafy Richmond village. Award-winning restaurant, traditional bedrooms, fine views and a sit out terrace. Good wedding and business venue.”

“Within striking distance of the city but without the hustle and bustle, the Petersham is an imposing 60-room, privately owned hotel with a graceful country house feel, attentive staff and an award-winning restaurant. It was built in 1865 in Italian Gothic style by the architect John Giles (of Langham Hotel fame), whose design incorporated a tower, high-pitched roofs and a profusion of balconies. The hotel is set on the side of Richmond Hill with splendid views across Petersham Meadows to the river, particularly fine from the terrace and lovely light breakfast room. Although it’s a steepish walk uphill from the town centre, the No. 65 bus will deliver you to the door. The peaceful setting comes into its own at night, when there should be little to disturb your sleep in one of the seriously comfortable, traditionally decorated bedrooms. Reason enough to stay here, Alex Bentley’s balanced British menu attracts locals as well as hotel guests to the excellent ‘Restaurant at the Petersham’.”

They say

“The Petersham is Richmond’s finest hotel; standing proud on the side of Richmond Hill, overlooking the River Thames and surrounding meadows. Located just 8 miles from the centre of London, the West End and Heathrow Airport, today’s discerning traveller can expect the practicality of a City Centre Hotel in London with the peace and serenity of an English Country House retreat.
Being privately owned, The Petersham’s individuality remains as valuable as its independence. Few hotels create such a sense of elegance, style and sophistication which is why The Petersham is now considered one of South West London’s leading hotels.”
