Very cozy with plenty of storage space for our luggage and clothes. Also, the host provided plenty of towels for our stay. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a dinning table in a cozy nook near the window overlooking some gardens. The host also provided pamphlets for nearby attractions.

"The apartment was very clean, recently renovated, and attractive. It's a loft, so the walls angle in around the sides (as pictured), but it was more spacious than I expected. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The shower was good, and the wifi is excellent. The location is great: the street was quiet and peaceful, the train station is around the corner, and it's just a short walk to the centre of town, where there are supermarkets and restaurants, as well as riverside pubs, walks and rowboats for hire. Arthur was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this apartment, and I would happily stay here again."

"Perfect place for a short stay. (5/5 Rating). I arranged for a colleague to stay here while working at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew for a couple of weeks. It was within walking distance of Kew and nearby to local shops in Richmond so the location was perfect. There is also a well equipped kitchen so you can prepare your own food. Arthur was really helpful and made sure my colleague had everything they needed. Thanks again and we will likely be arranging another visit soon."

"Your three properties were the perfect base for my brother's wedding and so well-located. Everyone in my family kept commenting on the quality and comfort. It was nice to have homely accommodation while away especially during such a busy week."
Brian, Therese, Devon and Jada Roberts,
Reside: Chino Hills, CA, USA,
Visited: 23 August - 30 August 2018
"We were referred to Larkfield Apartments through the Richmond American International University website. The rates were comparible if not better than local hotels considering the amenities and proximity to public transportation.

Arthur was very responsive and accommodating to our specific needs. We loved that the bus stop and Richmond train station were just a short walk from the apartment. We had all the comforts of home, too: WiFi, kitchen, washer/dryer, etc.

We were offered a bigger apartment on the lower level but honestly our family of four was comfortable in the Studio Apartment. There was more than enough space for us in this quaint and cozy space.

The pillows and mattresses were comfortable and the linen and towels were fresh and clean. (I would recommend "fluffing" the towels in the dryer for a short time.) I was very grateful to be able to cook meals for my family everyday. Thank you for providing the basic pots/pans and utensils.

All in all I know our family will choose to stay at Larkfield Apartments (Studio) again the next time we come to Richmond. Many thanks!! Brian and Therese."

"This is an excellent choice for anyone needing close proximity to the Royal Ballet School. The location is very close to the station, walkable to all of Richmond’s sights and restaurants and is on a quiet, safe street. It was easy to get to central London’s main sights by train or underground. We appreciated Arthur’s excellent communication and the apartment is bright, secure, clean and comfortable for a family. We hope to stay here again."

"Arthur was the perfect host. He greeted us at the front door. We began communicating with one another about 24 hours prior to our arrival. Arthur welcomed us and oriented us to the apartment. He went out of his way to personally print me some personal documents we needed. We had chosen Arthur’s apartment for the location near the Royal Ballet School in Richmond Park. We could not have been happier! The RBS shuttle bus pick-up/drop-off is literally 1.5 blocks from the apartment. Richmond station very close and convenient for catching the train or buses. We also enjoyed being able to cook our own meals. The kitchen had all we needed. We felt safe and comfortable. We would recommend this stay and hope to come again!"

The apartment is well situated on a quiet residential road just a few minutes walk to Richmond train station and the centre of Richmond and within easy walking distance of Richmond Park and Kew Gardens.

Spacious and light apartment with a full kitchen made coming home each day a pleasant experience.

(Not a criticism at all, but a couple of USB plugs or sockets would’ve been great)."
