Arrived to a nice warm welcome, and was pleased to be allocated a room which was called the same as my surname! The room was across the road from the pub, in a lovely building retaining it's original features. The room was spotlessly clean, very traditional but very homely. Everything was included, even bath robes, high quality towels. The bed... More

I stayed at the boars head during August bank holiday weekend. The inn was busy when we arrived which may account for our less than warm welcome when we arrived. After finding our room ourslelves from the staffs directions (no showing to the room like other guests appeared to receive) we were very diassapointed with the quality of the accommodation.... More

Called in at 7pm on a Saturday bank holiday weekend with a little trepidation because we wanted to eat and assumed we may have a problem in getting a table. It was surprisingly quiet though a few tables were reserved. We ate in the bar area and the atmosphere was good. Plenty of staff to serve us and very attentive.... More

Stayed two nights whilst attending a wedding at the castle. It has charming traditional decor with a lot of chintz and original Georgian prints and paintings which look as if they come from the family collection. Our group enjoyed gathering in the homely bar, and sat up late in the pleasant sitting room. Next morning we made use of the... More

stayed here for 1 night, revisiting the area after several years absence. The hotel was in a delightful position next to Ripley Castle and free entry to the castle garden was very welcome.The staff were welcoming and room in the courtyard nicely proportioned with all the usual extras. However I found both the mattress and pillows very hard and had... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband. Arrived around 9.30 p.m., but we were greeted well by the reception staff, shown around the hotel and to out room, which was out of the hotel and in the courtyard, where we were told we would get sunshine to wake us in the morning, which we did! We went to have... More

We wanted to attend a pottery course in nearby Littlethorpe and browsed through many reviews of hotels in Ripon and Harrogate before settling on the Boar's Head in Ripley. What an excellent choice we made. The village is delightful; the hotel parking convenient; the reception greeting warm, friendly and informative. The room was well appointed with all necessities - tea/coffee... More

We stayed overnight before going to the CLA Game Fair at Harewood House as the location was very convenient. It's also in a pretty location with some nice walks and close to Ripley Castle. It was early when we arrived so before having a walk up to the Castle (you can get free entry tickets to the Castle Gardens if... More

Ivy clad and very much the hub of the very small village of Ripley which is only three mile outside Harogate on the Ripon side. The main attractions are the nearby castle and grounds, the 'World Famous Ripley Ice cream', and Hutchinsons the fantastic butcher. Worth trying all this should you decide to stay. Rooms are traditional with very comfortable... More
