The staff at the old deanery couldn't do enough for us before during and after the stay. We had many changes to a complicated group booking which they patiently bore, and booked dinner for us at a lovely local pub. The hotel is next to the beautiful ripon cathedral and very near the historic market square. The hotel is lovely... More

A 17th century building with a staircase to match. The owners have sensibly retained the historic look of the interior of the old deanery. Room 3 has a splendid view over the north face of Ripon Cathedral. Bedroom and bathroom are wonderfully spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and supplied much interesting historical information about the building. The only slip... More

We arrived at The Old Deanery after a long, tiring drive from Arran as a stop over on our way back to London. As soon as we met Linda, mounted the very grand staircase and entered our room we felt better. Coming to The Old Deanery is like visiting an old friend who has somehow become Master of an Oxford...

This was my second visit to The Old Deanery and I was immediately made to feel so welcome by Linda the owner, like an old friend returning. My room and bathroom were huge with fabulous views over the garden, very peaceful and comfortable. Little touches like a plug in the right place to dry your hair at a dressing table,... More

A terrific hotel right in the heart of Ripon, next to the Cathedral. Nothing was too much bother for the staff. If you want to get away from the major hotel chains and indulge in some luxury, stay here. The restaurant food was beautifully prepared and the ingredients of the highest quality and fresh. The orange and apple juices are... More
