With its position directly opposite Ripon Cathedral, The Old Deanery Hotel is the quintessentially ecclesiastical style of house one sees by cathedrals but never has the opportunity to enter. It's simply charming, and the large garden at the rear is quite magical as well as peaceful. There was a minor problem with the room when we arrived but the staff... More

I was a guest at a wedding here on the 13th August 2015, I have food allergies and often I end up missing out on having food at events such as weddings as I am difficult to cater for. The staff at the Old Deanery were so helpful, they went to so much effort to find me alternatives that were... More

A wonderful old building you get the sense of age from the sloping floors and great stair case. Room had lots of space with everything you need but disappointed with style of furniture. would have liked to see things more in keeping with age but that is just personal taste. The Staff were nice especially the girls at breakfast.

Me and my wife rented out the Old Deanery to host our wedding and Linda was amazing from start to finish....From the moment we arrived we were put at ease that everything would run smoothly. The rooms were lovely and all completely unique and the canapes and food were excellent. I would highly recommend the Old Deanery for anyone looking... More

Having just attended a wedding this weekend at the Old Deanery in Ripon, I felt compelled to write a review and praise the establishment. What a fantastic place to get married in! Everything about the venue was perfect: The staff, the food, the setting, the building and the decor completely took our breath away. Helped along by the weather and... More

We stayed here a couple of nights in July. We had a twin room which is right at the top of the hotel looking out to the front and the cathedral. It was a big room with very comfortable beds, crisp bed linen, fluffy towels and really nice bath products. We were offered a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival... More

I recently attended a wedding at this venue which was beautiful! Lovely food, etc. the only fault and probably the worst to make was the staff. Not the staff themselves but how they were treated. I couldn't help but notice that some of the staff were working 10+ hours with no evidence of a break (baring in mind it was... More

We stayed for two nights. The staff were wonderful and friendly and we were given a free drink on the night we arrived. In some respects the room was great. An original panelled room with a wonderful 18th century window overlooking the lawn. Everything sloped and nothing was square, which was delightful. There were big, fluffy towels and bathrobes and...

We had two nights in this lovely place - from the photos you would expect to out in the countryside, but the location is unbelievably excellent; a literal stones throw from the Cathedral and a two minute walk to the centre of beautiful Ripon. The staff were very friendly and offered recommendations for places to eat other than themselves (we... More
