We visited The Boars Head in Ripley in April 2014. We booked two rooms for a one night stay for a friends wedding at Ripley Castle. The location is superb for access to the castle just a minutes walk from the hotels entrance.
The service we experienced from the reception staff was great, we arrived earlier than expected and asked if we could check in earlier, our room was cleaned and we were able to check in early which gave us ample time to get ready for the wedding. The room we had was a gardeners cottage, it had an adjoining room which was great as we were all together.
The room was clean and comfortable and had all of the amenities we required. The Wifi was a little hit and miss which was a tad annoying at times as nine if us had any phone signal in Ripley.
Breakfast was great, there was a great selection of cereals, juices and croissants etc, and the gull English was good too. We can recommend the poached eggs, nice and runny in the centre.
Check out was easy.
We took advantage of the free entrance to the castle and the castle tour which is available to guests of The Boars Head, well worth a trip if you have time.
A lovely break, would recommend to anyone.
