Our annual weekend away was in Ripon, staying at the Ripon Spa Hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful with directions, our room was quite grand, high ceilings etc, huge bathroom, will need updating at some point but at the end of the day you do not go away to stay in your room. Breakfast was fantastic, cereal,... More

Have just had a fantastic weekend at the Ripon Spa. Helped by sunny weather we were on the beautiful croquet lawns all weekend. The food was delicious, the best breakfast ever with a wide choice and freshly cooked eggs to order, sausages and bacon too quality. The Turf bar is very cosy and inviting with a coal fire. A very...

Having enjoyed my stay at the Ripon Spa Hotel in July I visited again whilst staying with a friend. Lunch at the hotel on Saturday was so delicious we had Sunday lunch there too! The staff, from reception, restaurant and bar are always helpful and attentive, not in the usual "Have a nice day" way, but genuinely courteous and pleasant.... More

I would recommend Ripon Spa to anybody wanting a relaxing break. I stayed here two nights with my husband, daughter and grand daughter. The hotel takes you back in time. Bedrooms have everything you need, very clean and spacious. We were overlooking the beautiful gardens and watched croquet being played on the lawns. The staff were very attentive and very... More

Charming and quirky, a refreshing change from the ultra model hotels. Very comfortable and the food in the restaurant was first class. The staff were friendly and very helpful . Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the races.

From the outside this hotel looks a bit run down, and you get an OMG moment when you pull up outside, the public area of the intererior is also oldy worldy and like stepping back in time. Service was great all through my stay, the food in the bar was also very very good and reasonbly priced and breakfast was... More

Stayed at Ripon Spa Hotel in mid September for one night at short notice, as we wanted to visit Fountains Abbey. The hotel is a grand old lady - but very tired. Every floor board and stair tread we stood on creaked (loudly) and the hallways were very dark (especially at night). Our room was clean and tidy. We didn't... More
