After reading reviews I was slightly disappointed overall. The staff we encountered were lovely, probably the best part of the hotel. Rooms; Just tired, the springs could be felt, pillows a little flat, furniture showing its age, blinds that don't block out the sunlight, small tv, and windows with gaps in. Also creaking floorboards means when the people above you... More

The grounds of this hotel are lovely with well tended gardens and lovely croquet lawns. Although the hotel fabric could do with some tlc the room we had was clean, well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The food, although I was part of a large group was good and the staff are very attentive and helpful.

OK - I could pay £39.95 for a faceless room in a cloned Weatherspoon's but chose the Ripon Spa hotel for location and convenience. Family run and friendly. Beautiful gardens and croquet available. Thanks to Mr Fergus for the coaching. Turf Bar and Bistro excellent - set menu with specials board but Martin very helpful and will adapt dishes to... More

2nd stay at this hotel this time for our 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel upgraded our room and also put a bottle of fizz in the room as a lovely gesture. We love it here and have booked again for our next day at Ripon races. A lovely little walk to Fountains Abbey is a must from the hotel too.... More

Visited the bar. Paid £15.20 for a beer and a gin and tonic. The bar man and was a very bitter and unpleasant man. Ruined the end if our evening, will never go return here. Only rescued by the friendly customer who showed us the lovely garden when nobody else seem willing to...avoid here if you possibly can

The building is indeed old but not dirty, if you should wish to stay in a modern sterile environment please feel free to do so. As for the restaurant it is in fact not open Friday to Sunday as we do not have a designated restaurant and if all the main rooms are being used for functions guests are informed... More

Once again my wife and I spent a splendid break at this wonderful hotel. The rooms are spotless and the staff are a credit to the management. We had a meal in the bistro and the service and food was up to the same high standard as the rest of the hotel Booked to return in January

We arrived at the Ripon Spa Hotel after a house fire in January. Our stay was long obviously, and we were not too happy with life, however, the Hotel was fantastic - in so many ways it would be too long to write down. Trying to condense -- staff were A1 fantastic, nothing too much trouble, rooms excellent, clean with... More
