We stayed at the Ripon Spa for a couple of nights on the recommendation of a friend. The Ripon Spa is a large old hotel that is showing its age. That said, it was a pleasant hotel with very accommodating staff who were very friendly. The hotel is within walking distance of the main square in Ripon and backs onto... More

Stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely large lawns at the rear of the hotel leading to the spa gardens. Clean room and very quiet despite being situated just off a main road. All the staff were very helpful and all very pleasant. The breakfast was lush and very well presented, the dining room was very spacious... More

We stayed twice in August - once when northbound for a holiday in Scotland and again on the way south. Both rooms were very clean and tidy. One appeared recently refurbished and had a very well set out bathroom. Plenty of room for Dog's bed and bowls. It was beautiful, warm weather so we chose to eat on the terrace... More

After a 4 day stay we were sad to be leaving. It's a lovely 'classic' period 'English' hotel with plenty of character. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful and during our stay the room was cleaned to an impressively high standard. If you want a modern hotel where each room looks the same with mdf furniture this is... More

My Husband and I have stayed in the Ripon Spa Hotel on numerous occasions. Though the decor is a little dated the hotel is homely, comfortable and welcoming. The staff are lovely and extremely helpful. The beds are comfy and rooms clean. We always eat in the Turf Bar, and the food is most enjoyable, and breakfasts second to none,... More

Although this hotel is very tired and in need of a refurb the staff are exceptional nothing is too much trouble and the buffet breakfast the best we've ever had. It's in an ideal spot for the lovely market town .

Stayed here for two nights following a great day completing the yorkshire 3 peaks. What a really lovely hotel in every respect. Every single member of staff was polite and friendly and went over and above call of duty. The decor was lovely throughout and the hotel had a nice traditional English feel about it. Beautiful linen table cloths etc.... More

A good example of a heritage hotel, by which i mean it remains slightly dated but not necessarily in a negative way. Yes, it needs a lick of paint here and there and yes the decor was last updated 20-30 years ago but this brings with it a certain charm. Some beautiful gardens too if that's your thing. Was it...

Visited with fam and was made to feel very welcome. Lovely big room which comfortably fitted the "put up" beds for the kids. Great breakfast in the ballroom on Sunday - loads of choice form the buffet and some cooked to order items from the kitchen. They just need a touch of WD40 on the toaster! Will be back!

The Turf Tavern is a bar part of the Spa Hotel Ripon. It is a delightful pub style bar serving good pub food and beverages. Not only does this delightful bar serve sandwiches all day but caterers for our gluten free friends. The service and food was fabulous. Sat in the grounds of the Spa hotel on the terrace even...
