Our second visit to Ripon to see my Brother and his Wife. Stayed here last time and no hesitation in staying here again. The Old Lady is getting a bit tired BUT the welcome you get and the food more than make up for this. The Hotel is about 5 minutes walk away from the Town Centre. It has beautiful... More

My colleague and myself have just spent 2 nights here whilst we were at the races. Firstly i must comment on how very helpful and pleasant the stff on reception were. Also the breakfasts were very good and again all the staff were very attentive and helpful, the same also applies in the bar. The rooms were very nice and... More

I was a bit apprehensive after my stay at this hotel a couple of years ago because I knew it had changed hands and feared the march of progress had left its mark - i.e. modern refurbishment, plastic, chrome, etc. I am pleased to report that the hotel is even better than I experienced last time (which I didn't think...

Decor very tired and gives the impression of being a bit run down but after a bath we went down to the Bistro (which again looked definitely dingy) - however, the bar staff and waiter (Martin) were excellent, and the food was very good - the bed linen, towels and bathroom was spotless and the breakfast very good so for...

We celebrated a very special birthday here and the staff were really helpful in the preparation and organisation of it. The buffet we had was excellent and plentiful as was the bucks fizz :)) The room was a perfect size for the 40 or so people and the view onto the gardens added to this special day.

Stayed here for our overnight stay as part of our way of the roses cycle. The building itself, once a grand old spa hotel, is fading a bit, but it's comfortable and charismatic. But the staff were great, we keep the bikes in a room downstairs and the receptionist was even kind enough to lend us jump leads and a... More

A friendly comfortable hotel in lovely gardens, and near to NT and countryside attractions. Food excellent, breakfasts to die for. A really enjoyable break. Staff most helpful. Ripon itself is an interesting place.

It's been a very long relationship staying here and the most recent stay was as good as ever. Yes the room could, if you were being over critical, do with a little refresh but overall a warm welcome was enjoyed, a quick tonk of Croquet on amazing lawns, a comfortable quite night sleep and then a fine full English Breakfast...

You will always be welcome to have a " tonk " at croquet , but maybe for the sake of the sport we should call it a game . Thanks for your review . See you soon . More
