The Richwood, was built in the Victorian era (1880s) as a holiday residence for a family of the London gentry. At some point in the thirties the building was turned into a hotel and today it is a very comfortable licensed Guest House, bursting with facilities. From the front, the Richwood does not do justice to its size.
The dining room was, we were told, added in the 1950s and the ‘West Wing’ soon after.
The Richwood also has an aquarium with many beautiful tropical fish in the Dining Room
The front of the Richwood is graced with murals of Baalbek, one of the oldest and largest roman ruins in the Middle-East - as a tribute to the beauty of Lebanon and her fabulous capitol, Beirut.
The Richwood, the Baalbek Murals and the Torquay Cacti
Our murals (images below) were painted by a very talented artist, Gawayne Le Gall.
