Found via TA looking for a base for the Tour de France event. The hotel is a classically designed building in beautiful grounds (green bowls etc). It does need some updating but to some extent this adds to its charm. Staff are warm, helpful and welcoming. Its quiet and the dining room (which has been updated) would make a suburb... More

We were looking forward to returning to The Ripon Spa. We held our Wedding reception there 12 years ago, and we were hoping to receive the same fabulous treatment. The service was all fine, but the hotel looks very tired. We were I believe on the un-refurbished side of the hotel. The room was large but passed its grand days.... More

After a rather busy time, we were ready for a relaxing break. The hotel is set in extensive and beautiful gardens and very convenient for Ripon's restaurants and shops. Although, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, the decor is rather tired, our room was very comfortable and we had a great view of the gardens and croquet lawns. We didn't... More

It certainly sounds as if you had a very relaxing break. Setting the watch by George, the Hornblower, is definitely one Ripon tradition not to be missed! Thanks for your review and recommending us to your friends, see you again in the future. More

I enjoy staying at this hotel. Staff always pleasent, engageing and helpful. Wonderful gardens and quite a sun trap for drinks or tea. Several dining opportunities and very popular with special occasion lunches and dinners. Decor is a little tired but refurbishment is in progress and unobtusive. My wife has only one irritation and that is the location of the... More

The Ripon Spa Hotel is an excellent venue to host a Wedding. The outside terrace, park and lawns adjoining the hotel are charming, wonderful for pictures. The large dining room/ballroom and adjoining rooms provide lots comfortable areas for the guests to relax and enjoy themselves in. Our meal was truly excellent. The staff worked tirelessly to provide everything that was... More

My wife arranged a birthday treat for me at the Ripon Spa Hotel. We have stayed here before and once again I was not disappointed. The price for 2 nights B&B was very good , it included a £25 voucher for food in the bistro. The staff were very attentive at all time without being intrusive. Good all round break.

We stayed here for the weekend of the Tour de France so the room prices had been hiked up considerably but it was the same everywhere. Price aside, the hotel was really lovely - clean and comfortable room with a view over the beautiful and extensive grounds, fantastic breakfast and a wonderful evening meal in the restaurant.

You had to experience Le Tour in person to appreciate the excitement and the great atmosphere in Ripon and Yorkshire in general. All the staff enjoyed wearing their yellow t-shirts and getting to grips with our week long French menu! A warm welcome awaits you on your next visit. More
