A perfect stay

We had such a fantastic stay at the Richmond Harbour Hotel for our wedding in July 2022. From start to finish the whole team there were so accommodating, professional and personable. The suite was a great size and we managed to get ready there with bride, 3 bridesmaids, mother of bride, photographer, videographer, hair stylist and makeup artist all fit very comfortably in the room. The hotel is modern yet classic, clean and the spa is fabulous. Just be sure to book in advance if you’d like any treatments.

Perfect Day, Perfect Venue, Dreams Can Come True.

We had our Civil Partnership in the Terrace Room and the Wedding Breakfast in the Conservatory on Saturday 3rd August 2013. The staff went out of their way to help make our day run smoothly and without any worries for us, so that it was perfect. All of our guests were impressed with the level of service received throughout the weekend. Having the private use of the garden with the Conservatory enabled us to have the evening reception inside and out during the summer evening. The food for both the day and evening was excellent. We were given choices for Vegetarian options and were able to taste these prior to the day, along with all the rest of the food that we selected. The location of the venue, with its close proximity of picturesque riverside views and Richmond Park is ideal for wedding photographs. The accommodation is superb. We would like to say a special thank you to the Duty Manager Paco. He went out of his way to make our day/weekend everything we could have wished for, he took the stress away!! and the events organisers, Grace and Emily for their excellent attention to detail, friendly manner and being skilled at taking the stress out of planning. We are so pleased that we chose this venue and would highly recommend it for Weddings & Civil Partnerships.

Perfect Wedding Venue

My wife and I had out wedding at the Richmond Gate Hotel. The hotel was the perfect setting for the day, we got married in the Terrace room and had the reception in the Conservatory. Every guest was thoroughly impressed by the hotel and the rooms as quite a few stayed the night. The service was impeccable and the staff were incredible. The food served for the wedding breakfast was absolutely amazing. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and we would not hesitate to return. Might have to get divorced just so we can do it all again.

Everything went brilliantly...

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for last Saturday. Everything went brilliantly. We were thrilled with the look of the hotel, the service and the food. Many of our guests said the food was hands down the best they had ever had at a wedding. Everything ran very smoothly and please pass our thanks to the rest of the staff.

We know the party got a bit loud so please accept our apologies for that, I think everyone was having such a great time that a few people got a bit carried away.

We would not hesitate to recommend the Richmond Gate as a venue and would be more than happy to provide a testimonial if you would like. We also have some stunning photos of the hotel, with and without people in them so if you would like any of those please let us know.

Once again many thanks.

Most Perfect Wedding

I am just writing to thank a wonderful team for the most perfect wedding for Frank and myself at the Richmond Gate Hotel. The attention to detail and personal service was superb, not to mention the food and ambience. I would like to add special personal thanks to Emma and Bibiane (for the superb overall event management), Sharon (who was absolutely lovely and caring), Nicholas (who was similarly reassuring and helpful) and Dev, who was utterly professional, efficient and discreet. In addition, all the other staff encountered were equally charming. Please pass on our personal thanks.

I would not hesitate to recommend your hotel and, for the record, all of our guests were equally impressed!

Absolutely Wonderful

The wedding was absolutely wonderful. The weather was perfect, the church service very moving, and the reception fantastic. The Richmond Gate staff did an excellent job in serving us and a great time was had by everyone. As expected, we ran a bit late after the church service, what with the photographer wanting to get some good shots on the Hill overlooking the Thames, so eventually the disco was later than expected starting. That was of minor concern, however, as all the guests were thoroughly enjoying the occasion. The pianist was excellent, the food delicious, the service spot on, and the whole ambience of the hotel and garden just perfect. Even the speeches, mine included, were a huge success. We had a well earned night at the hotel and I had a refreshing swim in the morning followed by a beautiful breakfast. The staff were most helpful in boxing up the heavy tiers of cake and bringing them out to my car. Everyone was most impressed with Richmond Gate and appreciated that it was a beautiful venue for a special occasion.

Please thank all the staff for making the wedding celebration such a success and thank you, Emma, for your professionalism in preparing the way.

A truly fantastic day .........

I wanted to write to thank you and all the staff at the Richmond Gate for a fantastic day. It was a perfect venue and we received many compliments about our choice. Dev was charming, relaxed, calming and flexible. He made a number of excellent suggestions that made the day run more smoothly. I was really impressed by the flexible way he handled our requests on the day. The other staff were all really helpful and thoughtful too – I was impressed by their light touch, being available when needed, but otherwise letting us get on with things. Our room was fantastic and many thanks for the bottle of champagne that was waiting for us! I really appreciated all your help in the planning stages, thinking through the arrangements, answering my numerous questions and then taking delivery of all our items and briefing your colleagues. It really was a fabulous day and I am so grateful that you let us go on a little longer than normal!

A perfect venue and perfect day

Our wedding day was absolutely fantastic, so many thanks to you and all the staff for making it such a great event! We’d especially like to thank Dev and his team for all their work on the day and for keeping everything moving along so smoothly. They really did a great job. Please also pass on our thanks to Friederike for all her help.



My father has also sent a letter to the hotel the week after the wedding to express his thanks to all the staff for helping to make it a great day.

You fulfilled all our expectations

The ceremony went very well and we were both delighted with the hotel organisation and the quality and presentation at the reception. The food was excellent and the restaurant staff were professional and efficient. I'm sure it was a testament to your work behind the scenes that it all went without a hitch. The day was very special for both of us and Richmond Gate fulfilled all our expectations.
