We had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Ripon Spa as part of my 60th birthday celebrations. Our group of family and friends were well looked after by the friendly staff and the food and ambience were second to none. Although we are local our friends were from further afield so we booked rooms and stayed overnight. The rooms were... More

We held an all day event on the 13th May. From the booking process to the standards maintained on the day the staff were all excellent. Nothing is too much trouble, it's great to see old fashion customer service still exists at The Ripon Spa. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. I would definitely recommend this venue for both... More

This is our 3rd visit to this lovely hotel. We were visiting family for a few days and wanted to stay here again. So pleased to find they have the same very pleasant and helpful staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The bedroom we were given was huge with a very comfortable bed. Both of us slept like logs. On... More

Has a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor on the door - WHY ? Reception staff surly and poor attitude - we work in a dump so don't blame us ! Bedroom had paint flaking off windows where the wood wasn't actually rotting away. Bathroom similar to our first house back in the seventies. Restaurant - no you can't make... More

Those who have seen my responses , will know i have never been discourteous or rude , but there is always an exception. The Ripon Spa has been a hotel since 1906 and has had many thousands of people through its doors . Not all residents will have been happy , but the majority are .We do not profess to... More

Hadnt been to this little gem for a while, pleasantly suprised to find nothing had changed Hotel of character with fantastic grounds an attached park, excellent staff, whats not to like? From the friendly reception staff, to being entertained by Martin behind the bar, and the brilliant banter with Fergus, all was well. Breakfast is good and plentiful and we... More

People were lovely and the breakfast was good. We went to the bar for a drink and to look at the menu the food looked nice and sounded nice but we decided to eat in town as there was no atmosphere in the bistro and they had a TV on with sky sports, Which I am sure many people would... More

Central, easy to find and good value for money we stayed for one night with our dog who was made welcome with no added charge. It was close to Swinton Park where I was going for a cookery course. The room was fine and the welcome warm. Dinner was in the bar which was rather bare and basic but the... More

Although the hotel is a little dated/faded in its decor it makes up for in abundance through its staff. From reception to night porter all staff were welcoming & very helpful. We only stayed the one night but would definitely book again. The only down side really was the heating. It was extraordinarily hot in the room despite the windows... More

Thank you . Getting the heating balance right is quite a tricky task , as some people feel the cold more than others. Breakfast is normally well recieved. Hope to see you again in the near future. More

We have stayed at this hotel in the past and booked a specific room. Had walk-in shower and bath. Staff very attentive and helpful. Very clean with a great breakfast. Would thoroughly recommend, slightly dearer than average, but beds so comfortable I want to take it home. Big fluffy towels. Only downside if there is one is that it is... More
