I read other reviews before booking this hotel. I wasn't put off by the negative reviews and was so glad that I wasn't. I have just enjoyed three lovely, relaxing days here with my sister. The service was fantastic. Whatever we needed was supplied and with great courtesy and friendliness too. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but that... More

Fantastic hotel in Ripon with beautiful peaceful gardens and our room was lovely. The staff accommodated all our needs and were helpful and polite. This is not a hotel for people who like chain hotels it has character and age which add to its charm. The breakfast was gorgeous freshly cooked quality ingredients. My husband had kippers which he said... More

We stayed for three nights and found the room very comfortable. We were delighted to find a four-poster bed, which we had not specifically requested. The grounds are lovely and the hotel is only a few minutes' walk away from the town. Breakfast was very good. The staff were able to fulfil our every request, which made it much easier... More

Booked a last minute overnight stay August bank holiday weekend. Staff were really friendly, the room was gorgeous with a four poster bed and good size bathroom. Good selection of breakfast choice. The hotel grounds are really beautiful and it's only a few minutes from the city centre.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and we enjoyed it. It is an old fashioned hotel but it has its charm. We had a spacious room with a excellent view over the beautiful garden. The breakfast is good, but the first morning we hardly got anything. We were late at 09h00 but breakfast time was till 09h30. Otherwise... More

You certainly weren’t late for breakfast at 9am and if some items had run out, then fresh supplies should definitely have been on their way. The Restaurant Manager will definitely look into this but glad to hear that everything ran smoothly on the next two mornings! Thanks for your review and hope to welcome you back again. More
