Relaxation in Richmond!

BEST WESTERN Kings Head Hotel in Richmond oozes quality and exudes style. That should come as no surprise when you learn that our wonderful building was first erected as a gentlemans townhouse in 1717! Since then, guests have come and gone, but the class and charm of the place remains for all who visit to enjoy.

Fine Georgian architecture blends with modern convenience to offer warm and cosy surroundings and a relaxed atmosphere. Little wonder that the artist J.M.W. Turner described the hotel as The finest in Richmondshire!

Situated in the historic town of Richmond, BEST WESTERN Kings Head Hotel overlooks the beautiful cobbled marketplace reputed to be the largest in Europe, with in walking distance of the stunning Theatre Royal, Richmond Castle and river walks by the Swale. It means you have as much to feast your eyes upon outside the hotel as you do inside, and you'll never be stuck for things to see and do during your stay.

Richmondshire…rich in culture!

Riverside, woodland and the remains of the Georgian racecourse all lie nearby, as do a number of other must-see attractions!

Traditional hotel, perhaps a little tired in décor. Right in the centre of town in a charming square, with lots of nice pubs and restaurants in the evening. If your room is on the front of the hotel... more »

Right in the central square of a very pretty town centre. The front of the hotel is sensational. However the inside is less worthy of a good review. Its comfortable, good value, and the staff were ... more »
