Just returned from another stay at riverside lodge. Stayed in the Cathedral lodge with my partner and her Mam, Dad, Nanna and Granddad. Friendly owner. The lodges are set in a lovely area. The negatives are there are still a few little bits that could be cleaned up or improved and the lodge was not fully clean when we arrived, but this was not a factor that bothered us to much. The lodges are homely and the hot tub is a big draw. The sitting area outside is also pleasant and peaceful on a warm summers evening. Ripon is also a nice setting and I highly recommend a beer by the river at the water rat or in the beer garden at the Magdalene. The food is also very good at the Golden Lion. We used the Indian service that is left in the information booklet and we were very impressed with the service. We are already talking about our next visit.
