Stayed at the Old Deanery for one night in June whilst exploring the area. We had a large bedroom with super spacious bathroom. We arrived a little early and were made very welcome with complimentary coffee in the lovely garden whilst our room was being prepared. Both breakfast and evening dinner in the hotel were excellent. Staff were friendly and... More

We had a 3 night stay at the old Deanery. The building is as its name implies is old about 400 years but has been completely refurbished inside without losing its feel. The staircase is magnificent. Our room no.9 was right at the top and had plenty of space, a bed/settee a desk and chair, TV, iron and ironing board,... More

There is a lovely Italian about a 5min walk away for those who don't want to dine I the restaurant. The breakfast was ample ranging from cereal and... More

Charming old world hotel, with large rooms and excellent facilities Service could not be faulted and the breakfast was excellent. Bit on the price side though..Although very close to cathedral the bells were not particularly noisy.

We stayed four nights, and the location was ideal; lovely building and friendly staff. We didn't have an evening meal but breakfasts were good. We enjoyed kippers, eggs florentine and porridge at breakfast. Nice view of garden from the breakfast room. Splendid view of cathedral from our room but this had its disadvantages, organ and bell ringing practices in the... More

This small and characterful hotel was once the Dean's house, it is now nicely converted to commercial use and not is not chain owned. It is right next door to the cathedral in the centre of the quiet and charming town of Ripon. It is not luxury or even up market but it is small, clean, functional and with that... More

Stayed two nights over the Tour de Yorkshire weekend. Room 2 is large and very comfortable overlooking the grounds to the rear. We ate in the restaurant both nights and were delighted with both the quality of the food and the standard of service. If anything, breakfast is even better.

We spent two nights in the honeymoon suite and really enjoyed it. The room was huge and had great character and a fantastic big sash window looking out over the garden. The only small negative was that the wardrobe was pretty fusty and needed airing out - to the point where we didn't hang our clothes in it as we... More
