Staying in this B&B must be a treat for any Regency lover. Although the building is very old it combines all the charm one assocites with a period drama with the modern additive of excellent customer service. Sue and Gordon are delightful hosts who have lovingly restored the building from a blank canvas with an eclectic mix of antiques and modern furnishings. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm Yorkshire welcome and little extras in our room such as sherry (in a decanter) chocolates, and complimentary hand made soap. The room was comfortable and quirky: sloping floors and ceilings plus a lovely separate dressing room in addition to the ensuite- complete with roll top bath. Without being intrusive or overbearing Sue offered advice about the area and Gordon is one of those true old fashioned gentlemen with manners to match. Breakfast was delightful in their flagship period dining room. We were asked what we would like and whilst my husband opted for a full English I had a simple poached egg after a bowl of perfectly ripened fresh fruit. Everything was piping hot including the tea which was served from underneath a tea cosy! If jane Austen hadn't beaten me to it I'm sure I could have set a winning novel here!!!

We have just had an excellent stay at this beautiful period house. Our king sized room was more like a suite. The furniture and all the contents of the house have been chosen with love & care and reflect the character of the home, and its owners. The bedroom was sumptuous, with luxury quality bed linen, curtains and lighting. The bathroom contained a roll top bath. Small personal touches, of chocolates, bottle of wine, bath robes and sherry in a decanter, with crystal glasses, made it a special treat. Our room had a view of Richmond Castle walls, which were very close by. Sue and Gordon are friendly and welcoming hosts and as guests you are made to feel that all the features of their beautiful home are at your disposal. The breakfast was presented professionally and was delicious. An antique sideboard in the charming dining room was laid with summer berries and other breakfast choices. The location of the House is perfect, being less than 1 minute's walk to Richmond Market square. I would definitely recommend The Olde Castle House to anyone who is visiting Richmond. There was nothing I could add which would have made my stay better, and there were definitely no bad points.
What a place, a roll top bath and king size sleigh bed! A bottle of wine, chocs and sherry in our room. Breakfast was so very special and Sue was lovely. I would stay every night if I could!

We stayed here on the 23rd august and received a warm welcome from Sue the owner. We were shown to our beautiful large room which was immaculate with a lovely en-suite which had a slipper bath. We had a nice chat to Sue and Gordon and were advised as to where to go for an evening meal (Rustique french restaurant which was fab). After a great nights sleep we came down to a gorgeous breakfast. We would recommend this bed and breakfast! To park outside you need to get a permit from either the local shop or the bed and breakfast.
