My husband booked the restaurant at the Ripon spa for a surprise Valentine dinner for the 2 of us! I was quite excited, as being local to the hotel, we had always admired it from outside, but never actually been into the hotel itself. The meal itself we couldn't fault, but the layout of the room, for a Valentine's dinner... More

I stayed here on a recent business trip to Ripon and thought it was terrible. On arrival I thought I had arrived at the wrong place. It was more like a retirement home than a hotel. The room was clean although there was a musty smell to the whole place.

We stayed for 2 nights in cold Feb. and the open fires in the lounge and the bar were most welcome. We really enjoyed our breakfast with great tasty bacon and field mushrooms, The building was a little tired which was reflected in our room as the heating could only just cope with the draught coming through the window. Considering... More

Echoing other reviews the hotel could do with a little TLC but it felt so cosy and welcoming and I think the fact is isn't ultra modern and new adds to its charm. Staff were attentive and friendly, breakfast was lovely, you had to order some bits like hash browns and beans but they were brought out quickly. I could... More

I love these kinds of hotels - where, yes, admittedly they are very dated, but with soo much character and history. I felt at home here and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would stay again for sure. Yes, in need of TLC on outside but I didn't stay here for the paint work! My only suggestion would... More

We stayed here overnight after celebrating a family birthday as the party was held in one of the function rooms. The place is clean, the staff very helpful and welcoming, and breakfast wholesome and plentiful. It also sits in lovely grounds, adjoining Ripon Spa Gardens. Just don't expect the luxury you might get elsewhere a £100 a night room. The... More

A lovely hotel in a great location. Sure it looks a little old, and may need a little paint here and there, but the food was phenomenal and the staff did everything they could for us and our dog! Would be back in an instant!

I stayed one night so far on business. This is an old building with high ceilings. The room, a single, was fine, clean and cosy, hot shower, trouser press, TV, excellent wifi. All you need for a good night sleep. The breakfast was excellent in service and the food was fine. Freshly cooked and tea in a proper tea-pot. It... More

We had a lovely weekend at this characterful old Hotel last week, it was such a nice surprise to find it. The exterior may need a bit of a paint but everything else was great, and the interior is such a change from modern chain Hotels, which all look the same. The highlight has to be the open fires in...

Following a Christmas where my wife and I hadn't spent much time together due to work commitments, I looked for a weekend in North Yorkshire and picked a lovely spot. The hotel staff were super and the room was great. Lovely shower. Breakfast was very good also. The hotel was a stroll from the centre, and Ripon has some delightful... More
