Spent the evening here, at an organised big party dinner. The hotel was decorated for the season of Christmas but the staff were all rather subdued. We went through to our room, it looked lovely, but the temperature was far too low,...and most of the assembled 28 were all feeling it! The food served was delicious, obviously cooked fresh on...

I am sorry that an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable evening left you feeling chilly. We certainly need to ensure that in winter that the Garden Room is as warm and inviting as the lounge with the open fire where you enjoyed your welcome drinks. More

Arived Arrived in a cold night in December The spa in the name is misleading I think the spa is the old swimming pool next door bur there is no actual spa in the hotel . The hotel has lots of history and is clean but looks like it could do with a facelift and a proper hotel carpet. the... More

So sorry to hear you were cold, the temperature did drop dramatically last week, but the hotel should still have been warm so please accept our apologies. We are very proud of our name and its heritage dating back to the 1900’s when Ripon tried to improve its economy with a scheme to bring sulphur spring water to the city.... More

If you want a relaxed country hotel with excellent personal service, spacious lounge and dining rooms, a cosy bistro bar all with log fires and surrounded by lovely gardens then this is for you! Some of the outside looks a bit tired but the warmth of the inside makes up for it. The team work like a family, and nothing... More

This was our 4th stay this year and we have never been disappointed. Our room was clean and warm with crisp white bedding and plenty hot water for a nice soak in the bath before bedtime. Being able to sit and relax with a coffee and a book by a roaring fire in the lounge any time throughout the day... More

Thanks for spreading the word about our 3 nights’ winter warmer break, only available direct from the hotel, and at £199 for 3 nights’ bed and full English breakfast for two plus a £25 voucher to spend in the Turf Bar & Bistro on one evening no wonder they are so popular! More

We held my mothers 90th birthday party here at the Ripon Spa. The hotel offered us their 'Garden Room' which was ideal for the occasion. The food served, a three course lunch, was excellent and the service was very attentive. All of the guests were very impressed and my mother was delighted with her day. A big thank you to... More

the staff were friendly and helpful, I agree with comments made by others, re shower not the strongest water supply but it worked.

Sorry to disappoint – our smoked salmon is normally served cold with hot scrambled eggs and our chefs are always on hand to cater for any specific requests. We do believe our bed and breakfast rates offer good value for money - the £12.95 breakfast charge is for non-residents only. Thanks for your positive comments about dinner and the staff. More
