My husband and I had a most enjoyable Winter stay of five nights at this lovely hotel.
The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful in particular Ms. Janet Lain.
We were delighted with our large room which was spotlessly clean. The bedding was changed every two days.
On three of our five nights stay, there were large functions with music in the hotel which apparently carried on until 1.00am. I am a light sleeper but neither my husband or I heard anything at all.
The well cooked breakfast was 1st class with an excellent choice of local produce.
The restaurant was only open on Friday and Saturday evenings but the Turf Bar menu was more comprehensive. We ate dinner each evening in the Turf Bar which has a wide range of food to suit all tastes. The meal deals and platter with wine offers are great value for money.The bar and table staff were very efficent and friendly.
I only have two small negative comments which are not complaints but meant to be constructive suggestions.
a) Soap container too far away from the hand basin.
I asked if I could purchase a tablet of soap at the reception but was told they don't have any. I went out and bought one.
b) The four towels were changed each day even though we hadn't used them all.
Perhaps guests should be asked to put towels in the bath that needed changing. It would be more cost effective and more eco friendly and feel sure this would be acceptable to the guests. Many five star hotels use this system.
The Ripon Spa Hotel is in a brilliant situation with easy access to Harrogate. Knaresborough, Thirsk, Pateley Bridge, Borough Bridge and of course the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. A short car journey will take you to the historical City of York
Many thanks to all the staff who ensured that my husband and I had such a comfortable and memorable stay. We shall most certainly be returning to this hotel.
