Wow- Booked The Old Deanery for my daughters wedding ceremony and reception, hired it exclusively for the weekend and what a lovely weekend everyone had. The building has lovely features and character and oozes charm. It has a lovely garden ideal for photographs and an amazing staircase which is a wonderful way for the bride to make her first appearance... More

The most beautiful Hotel, clean, friendly and helpful staff..Perfect for a single like myself who was made very welcome and able to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere..I slept so well listening to the cathedral bells and the birdsong. The breakfasts were outstanding. My dog had his own sausages so he enjoyed it too! Right next to the Cathedral, the views are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Old Deanery for five nights a few weeks ago - it was a very relaxing and wonderful stay! The hotel is centrally located so restaurants, shops, etc. are within walking distance and having the beautiful Ripon Cathedral across the street was wonderful!

Excellent . Very convenient since we were attending several events in the cathedral .Very comfortable room, though lack of lift might prove a problem for anyone with much luggage. We had a room in the attic, with sloping ceiling and luxorious bathroom. Only complaint, it was rather too hot. Food excellent and service and reception friendly and unfussed, despite there... More

An excellent room - Room 2, looking over a beautiful secluded garden. Plenty of choice for breakfast - well cooked. Lots to see and do in Ripon and area. The hotel is just by... More

This is such a lovely old hotel, tastefully restored and very relaxing. We stayed in a big airy bedroom looking onto the Cathedral. The hotel and restaurant staff are delightful and very attentive and the dining room looks over well-tended gardens.

I have stayed at The Deanery a few times and it's always a pleasure, friendly staff and personal service. Unlike other hotels I stay at, I know exactly where I am when I wake up, this hotel has soul. The breakfast is nice and cooked on orders, haven't had dinner there.

We stayed at the hotel just for one night at the weekend. The location was perfect, free carpark and breakfast included. The receptionist was extremely helpful, they also gave us a free glass of bubbly as we were celebrating our anniversary which made us feel very special. Make sure you make it to breakfast as its delicious.

Visited to have a meeting about holding our wedding here, fell in love with it straight away. The building is beautiful and the staff are warm and welcoming. Stayed to have lunch in the garden room which was fantastic - the food is amazing, beautifully prepared and presented. The Old Deanery is in a fantastic location right next to Ripon... More
