3 days spent playing croquet in beautiful surroundings. This hotel made our group very welcome. Food and rooms were good, staff very attentive and 7 lovely lawns for croquet. Looking forward to another visit next year.

Stayed here for a family wedding at another hotel in June. The decor in my room was quite dated but was very clean and comfortable with good views of the fantastic gardens. It's clear they are part way through refurbishing the rooms as other members of the party had rooms which were much more modern. The staff were very helpful... More

We live out of the Ripon area: Our previous visits to the Ripon Spa have been while staying with friends in the area, for the New Year's Eve Dinner where the food has been to die for and the service faultless even at the end of a busy Christmas/New Year season. On Sunday 3rd July we saw the hotel and... More

This is the most relaxing hotel and I so enjoyed my stay. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious and actually served hot as some modern hotels seem to leave food standing too long, especially breakfast, so it's often lukewarm. Beautiful gardens are a pleasure to walk round and the terrace overlooks them so it... More

The name suggests grandeur, being called a Spa you might expect water. Unfortunately neither of these apply. I am sure that once upon a time and if the fading photographs are anything to go by then yes this hotel was once very elegant. However now it is rather sad and could benefit from a major investment. The rooms are clean... More

We just celebrated a friend's birthday at the Spa Hotel and it could not have been any nicer. Excellent food, good service from very attentive staff and a beautiful setting. We ended the afternoon playing croquet in the wonderful garden. A fantastic setting for a celebration of any kind. It is a traditional hotel but in the best sense.

Had the opportunity to drop into the Turf Bar for lunch. Great service and friendly staff. Had the hotel club ciabatta - arrived quickly and was really tasty. Definitely will be back again for something else from what was a varied menu. Much more if I wanted to have something even more filling. Superb value for money in comfortable surroundings.... More

Remember going to visit your gran back in the 90's? Well, if you liked that experience you'll love this hotel. Now, I'm talking about the evil of your two grans, not the nice one. I'm talking about the gran who spends more time in her garden rather than looking after the house: Mismatched thread bare carpets all over the place,... More

We had afternoon tea which was lovely, it was a nice day and people were playing crochet on the lawn. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Its a dog friendly hotel and the rooms are well sized and clean.
