This is our second stay at the Boars head,and the rooms and staff are still top notch. We booked what they class as a small double but it was really quite roomy. We ate in the bar this time as the restaurant was full, it was busy and noisy but we enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Lovely stay at a lovely hotel. Beautiful evening meal and breakfast in the dining room. Room was maybe a little on the small side for £125 (Chinese Room) but lovely comfortable bed. In a lovely location too.

Nestling within the Ripley Castle Estate, this fascinating but homely hotel is a real treat. The numerous reception rooms offer a comfortable atmosphere away from the popular bar and restaurant in which to relax. We stayed in a superior room looking out onto the village square. Food and staff were excellent.

An excellent end to a days work in walking and chatting with friends from Harrogate to Ripley and back. Having enjoyed previous dinners and party night i was looking forward to nice pub dinner. The friendly waitress made us very welcome and offered a water bowl for the thirsty 4 legged friend. We promptly ordered and the dinner was served... More

Stayed here one night whilst using an online offer. The hotel is situated in a lovely picturesque village. Staff are very welcoming and the room was nicely furnished with tea/coffee making facilities and an iron and ironing board. The bed was very comfortable and sheets fresh. The evening meal was very tasty and the restaurant was nicely decorated and provided... More

On a course through work stayed here. In house over road. Beautiful bathroom with big stand alone bath, hot water in abundance and lovely fluffy towels. Bed was very comfortable and lovely cotton sheets. Breakfast was very nice also. Nice bar on evening with friendly locals and bar staff. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

although not far from home this is one of my favourite places to visit. The hotel is in the small village of Ripley and run by the owners of Ripley Castle which is next door. The management could not do enough to accommodate our requests, the food was excellent and the rooms well presented. Maybe an update is needed but... More

Always love it when a hotel exceeds expectations and the beautiful Boar's Head did just that... from our approach by car to the Virginia Creeper-covered building that overwhelms the pretty market square of Ripley, to the warm welcome & lavish décor & furnishings inside this gorgeous Georgian house. We were greeted by Clara on Reception who gave a super-friendly &... More
