A Hotel full of character which exceeded all expectation. The spacious bedroom had a very comfortable bed, a bathroom with roll top bath and Molten Brown toiletries. Great choice for breakfast and plenty of it. Evening meal, sufficient choice, good quality food, presented well. The staff were all very pleasant and attentive. We were given information on a Ripon tradition... More

We found the Old Deanery on Trip Advisor and were so glad we did. It is directly across the street from the minster and we had an amazing view of it for our window. The home has historical significance and it has been very well maintained. The beds were comfortable, the breakup fasts were filling, abundant and delicious. It's also... More

We had a school reunion at The Old Deanery this past weekend. The hotel staff were warm and welcoming and could not do enough for us. Our meals were beautifully prepared and served in the wonderful dining room. After a good night's sleep in our well-appointed rooms, we were well-fortified by a full Yorkshire breakfast for a ramble around Fountains... More

We came back to the Deanery for our wedding anniversary this year, and we were made to feel so welcome. The staff are always so friendly, it's like being in a home from home. I honestly believe The Deanery is a hidden gem, with beautiful rooms, great location with the backdrop of the Cathedral, gorgeous food and impressive service. I... More

A group of us came to the deanery for my Husbands 30th birthday and we had a brilliant evening. The welcome you receive when you arrive is warm and friendly - nothing is too much trouble and the staff are very attentive. The food is glorious - a real treat for the taste buds! The building itself is beautiful, and... More

Great that you enjoyed your celebration and thanks for your comments. i think I should force everybody to go upstairs to the Ladies or Gentlemen's Cloakroom....its the tilting floor fun house in that corridor after a glass or two of wine! But as you say, a way to see more of the history. More

What a great position - immediately opposite the cathedral. Very friendly and comfortable, lovely room, well appointed shower room and an adequate breakfast. Few minutes walk to city centre. Pretty garden.

we enjoyed a relaxed weekend at the Old Deanery recently. The food was good, the owner most welcoming and we loved our attic room. The property is full of character and in a great location near the Cathedral. Would love to return!

We visited the Old Deanery just before Christmas and, after a long drive, stepped out of a cold wet evening into the warm welcoming foyer. Our room was lovely.

I am hoping that's how people will feel at Christmas when we open for the first time ever! You seem to have had the best of everything. I wonder if you slept on the Cathedral side or the garden side?! Hope to welcome you again More
