We wanted a couple of days to look around local historical sites and Ripon seemed to be a good central spot. The Ripon Spa Hotel had mainly good reviews, so booked for 2 nights. I did not know Ripon very well so it took us a while to find the hotel, but when we did, it had a large car park. Friendly receptionist on booking in, and a lovely large room, with a great view of the gardens at the rear. About a 10 minute walk to town, plenty of shops, places to eat and a good number of pubs. A great comfy and quiet nights sleep.
Went down for the self service breakfast, had the cereal, then went for the cooked breakfast. The breakfast plate was massive (Alan Partridge would of been happy), pilled on lovely local sausage, egg, local bacon and a massive mushroom. The food was great but because the plate was so big, pilled on a bit too much, set us up for the day. The hotel has it's own bar but we did not use it as we wanted to visit the pubs from The Good Beer Guide ( The Water Rat, The One Eyed Rat and The Magdalens all worth a visit).
Overall lovely would stay again, but some parts, ie, the window frames could do with a bit of touching up.
