Once again we spent two totally relaxing days at The Spa Hotel and returned home already planning our next visit. We were in Ripon as part of a reunion marking 40 years since our friends and ourselves began training at the now defunct teacher training college. However, our family association with the hotel stretches back even further. A visit to... More

Lovely hotel in great grounds. Fab location for Ripon races. Breakfast was one of the best we have had in many hotels. Only downside was a very very basic bathroom which was ok if you are only there for one night. This wouldnt put us off staying overnight again though.

I read other reviews before booking this hotel. I wasn't put off by the negative reviews and was so glad that I wasn't. I have just enjoyed three lovely, relaxing days here with my sister. The service was fantastic. Whatever we needed was supplied and with great courtesy and friendliness too. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but that... More

This is not a hotel for people who like chain hotels it has character and age which add to its charm. The breakfast was gorgeous freshly cooked quality ingredients. My husband had kippers which he said... More

We stayed for three nights and found the room very comfortable. We were delighted to find a four-poster bed, which we had not specifically requested. The grounds are lovely and the hotel is only a few minutes' walk away from the town. Breakfast was very good. The staff were able to fulfil our every request, which made it much easier... More
