We visited Lightwater Valley theme park on 26.07.12 and decided we would book a hotel to stay in for the night.
Ripon is close by and we booked The Unicorn on Late Rooms.
The lady on reception was very friendly advising telling us of attractions nearby.
We are a family of four with kids aged 8 & 10 and we got a family room which was neatly presented and a very good size. The decor was lovely and has been refurbed recently.
The hotel is attached to a Wetherspoons pub and we heard no pub noise when in our room.
The carpark was full when we visited but you can park on Sainsburys located at the rear of the hotel for free (1800 - 0800).
Ripon really is a lovely place to visit and I would strongly reccomend a visit to the Prima Itallian Restraunt just round the corner from the hotel.
I will definately be visiting Ripon again and hope I get a room at this hotel.
Go down to the pub in the morning for a excellent reasonably priced breakfast that will sort you out for the day.
