We stayed at the Ripon Spa Hotel for our visit to Ripon races. We booked the £97 Platinum package which included a superior room upgrade, dinner, bed, breakfast, entry to the races for the Club Stand, taxis to and from the racecourse and half a bottle of champagne. We didn't expect much from the food as there was so much... More

We found the hotel to be of the usual high standard + the food in the Turf Tavern was of a high quality. Well situated with excellent walks around the gardens and parks. Ideally situated for Ripon races - only a 20 minute walk away.

I booked the whole hotel to run a weekend music event, arriving Friday morning and leaving Sunday. From check in Friday afternoon to check out Sunday, the hotel was fantastic, the staff were so professional, and on the ball with everything that was asked of them, nothing was too much trouble. The evening meals were beautiful, cooked to perfection, as... More

Picked this hotel by chance and was absolutely delighted. Food was very good and the service excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. Located on the edge of Ripon and only a short walk from all local points of interest. simply great.

We were a group of 9 cyclists who stayed at the hotel for 1 night during a coast to coast ride. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was better than anywhere I've ever stayed. Rooms were a decent size and with lots of hot water for baths. Lovely faded grandeur and everywhere was very clean. Breakfast great. We didn't... More

I have been here many times for Sunday lunch both in the Bistro and the main dining room. On each occasion I have found the place delightful. The decor may be old and faded but this adds to the charm of the place. The pace is genteel rather than slick and modern. The food is wonderful and the staff are... More

I have visited this establishment on several occasions as I pass through the area on business. I booked for lunch today and was not disappointed even though there were many people for Mother's Day meals. The beef was superb, as always. The staff were excellent. They were attentive and quick with service. I cannot praise the food enough. Another fantastic... More
