Another warm welcome to the hotel full of character. From our clean comfortable bedroom we had a lovely view of the cathedral and were surprised not to be disturbed by the clock chimes. The food both evening meal and breakfast were plentiful and very enjoyable. Thank you to all the staff for their customer service. We will return.

This hotel is really special, dates back hundreds of years yet has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. My room was a very good size with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage and relaxing chairs. In the bathroom were a big bath and an excellent shower over the bath, the towels were lovely and thick and plenty... More

The welcome at the hotel was excellent. We had our dog with us and the hotel was truly dog friendly. However if you did not have a dog it would have been a problem for you. The food was very good, as was the wine. Breakfast this morning had an extensive choice as well as a sausage for Hamish the... More

We stayed at The Old Deanery for 3 nights in September to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The location is perfect, our room had a great view across to the cathedral and it is a 30 second walk to the city centre shops and restaurants. The room was quaint; uneven floors and old fashioned shutters at the windows making the... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay, and found the accommodation, food, and service first class. We found that the two long staircases to reach our room a bit of an effort (at our age!) but was well worth the climb as the room was delightful and had a excellent view of the Cathedral, particularly at night. To... More

We loved this hotel. It is a beautiful building perfectly situated in the centre of Ripon, overlooking the Cathedral and has great gardens which should be an added bonus in summer. The hotel is really made by the fantastic ethos of service which is set by the owner and is obviously keenly adopted by all then staff. It is not... More

This hotel was a great last minute find in Ripon through the local Tourist Information Centre. It has real charm and the welcome from Linda was very warm. Rooms are big and beautiful with lots of nice touches, e.g. Molton Brown toiletries, still and sparkling water, tea/coffee facilities. Bathroom was charming with a large freestanding slipper bath and a rain... More

We arrived at about 7, thinking it would be out of our price range but tired enough to try. We got lucky, as someone had just failed to show. The lady on the desk was helpful and friendly, the room was charming (clean, well-presented, spacious, equipped with all the usual amenities and far from symmetrical) and the view was straight...

great service, top quality food and friendly staff that go the extra mile. If you are planning a wedding or any other function, I would recommend the Old Deanery as you can have the privacy of the entire venue by booking out the 10 rooms for guests, the team looked after everybody with the friendly and personal touch.
