This was our third visit to the Boar’s Head and I hope it won't be our last. We had a three day relaxing stay. Everyone was welcoming and friendly and our room, across the road from the main building, was comfortable and had everything we wanted including a walk-in shower. The hotel has free wifi which worked a treat both... More

My partner and myself visited The Boars Head on 18/5/15 for an overnight stay on a Living Social deal. Wow...amazing venue and place. Set on the Ripley Castle estate the whole village is so beautiful and quaint. Driving through the village it was noticeable how clean and tidy the place is. Parked up easy enough and was met at reception... More

My wife and I stayed the weekend and had a really pleasant stay. The receptionist was very welcoming with a very cheerful smile and was very informative. Our room was pleasant and comfortable, but would have been better if it had a shower cubicle instead of a bath. Our friends room had a shower and looked as if it had... More

Thank you for your positive comments. We are in the process of updating all of our bathrooms, because of logistics of a 700 year old estate, some rooms do only have a bath, but feel free to ask for one with a shower on your return. More

I think we stayed at the same tim was Penny P and her son - hi! I took my parents here for a short break, and we all thought it was lovely. The food was excellent, with very pleasant service. 2 nice lounges to relax in, in addition to a nice bar. Our rooms were in a stretch of small... More

My son and I stayed here for two nights and had a very relaxing stay. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we thought it was good value for money. The castle history was fascinating and the grounds lovely to explore - fantastic hyacinth bed in the walled gardens which smelt gorgeous. The hotel was handy for other places... More

We stayed here for one night, we parked without any problem in the rear car park. The receptionist on arrival could not have been more pleasant, with a warm welcome and a short tour of where things were. We were also informed we could have a complementary ticket to Ripley Castle grounds or a reduced price for the castle. Our... More

5* for sure (I very rarely give 5* on trip advisor as I feel that it should be reserved for the very best places). But this hotel deserves a 5*- This hotel is amazing, it has the whole package. Driving up to the Boars Head it certainly has the "wow factor!" The building is gorgeous and the picnic benches outside... More

A lovely hotel in a nice location and an added bonus of tickets to enter the castle up the road at a reduced rate. The room was lovely with added special touches, such as yummy chocolates on the pillow. The lady on the front desk was helpful, efficient and very welcoming. Breakfast however, was a different experience. First, when we... More

Stopped over for one night and were given a lovely corner room overlooking the main street in Ripley. The room was certainly big enough and very clean and tidy. We didn't eat an evening meal , but certainly must compliment them on the Yorkshire breakfast - lovely!! Car parking might be a bit of an issue.
