Firstly I would like to say that the Events Manager Keri is outstanding and an absolute asset to the establishment. Her professionalism and quick thinking solved an unthinkable issue for my sister in law due to the exact opposite of another local establishment the night before her wedding and I could not have been more impressed. Keri you are awesome!... More

We recently stayed at the Old Deanery and we had a lovely time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean, and there was an abundance of hot water. Our room had a claw-foot tub, which added a touch of luxury. Our room, overlooking the hotel gardens, was quiet and we were able to keep... More

We spent a week in the Lake District for our honeymoon, and this was one of the best rooms we had: comfortable, very pretty. However, our disappointment was even the bigger when we came down for breakfast: they served a completely burnt omelette to my husband, without apology or asking if he wanted one remade. We also waited 20 minutes... More

I booked in last minute to break my long car journey with my cocker spaniel (Dexter) in tow and I have to say we were treated like royalty! The night manager was an absolute superstar and went out of his way to help, even giving me toothpaste out of his own toilet bag when he couldn't find the hotel stock!... More

My sister and I happened upon the Old Deanery whilst searching for an afternoon tea in the north yorkshire area. We've been to Betty's before and so wanted something a little different. We stumbled upon this online, and emailed to try and make a reservation for that afternoon. We received a reply straight away informing us that we would be... More

A superb-looking historic building in a lovely peaceful location, just opposite the cathedral. Friendly and efficient staff; the hotel has a very informal and comfortable and ambience. Our room (room 4) was on the first floor overlooking the rear garden and was very spacious. Clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom with a decent shower too. All in all a pleasant and... More

Charming, rustic and peaceful 17th century hotel opposite Ripon cathedral. The dining room overlooks beautiful gardens. The food was of a high standard and the service was exceptional. The staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful and welcoming to me. Little extras in the bedroom were a nice suprise (hot chocolate instead of just tea and coffee,... More

From the very beginning, Linda and the team were welcoming and very amenable to our wedding plans, with a beautiful venue to offer, exactly as we wanted it. Then along came Keri! The icing on an already great cake that led to me feeling relaxed and confident that everything was dealt with exactly as I wanted it to be. Emails... More
