I stayed this weekend in this hotel and found it to be a great asset to the owners and the town of Ripon. Centrally located, car parking, great hsitoric building and contemporary individual rooms.
Obviosuly a historic building opposite the cathedral in the centre of town, but the building has been sympathetically renovated and the public and bedroom that I saw where nice sizes and very comfortable.
Due to its general lack of a lift, swimming pool etc etc, (like the usual tick list of things) this hotel is not as highly graded as others, but well worth the additional money over the standard offerings of Harrogate and Ripon. I would say from my expeirnce then you would be looking at a four star on the basis of the room amenities, restuarant, general ambience and location.
Food was excellant and very reasonably priced considering this is a Michelin recommended restaurant as well.
Staff and owners added to the mix well with the owners taking personal attention to make you welcome.
If your in the area and want somewhere nice, central and not run of the mill then this is most definately the place to stay and considering its fourposter beds a great weekend break option on half board.
