I love these kinds of hotels - where, yes, admittedly they are very dated, but with soo much character and history. I felt at home here and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I would stay again for sure. Yes, in need of TLC on outside but I didn't stay here for the paint work! My only suggestion would...

We stayed here overnight after celebrating a family birthday as the party was held in one of the function rooms. The place is clean, the staff very helpful and welcoming, and breakfast wholesome and plentiful. It also sits in lovely grounds, adjoining Ripon Spa Gardens. Just don't expect the luxury you might get elsewhere a £100 a night room. The...

A lovely hotel in a great location. Sure it looks a little old, and may need a little paint here and there, but the food was phenomenal and the staff did everything they could for us and our dog! Would be back in an instant!

I stayed one night so far on business. This is an old building with high ceilings. The room, a single, was fine, clean and cosy, hot shower, trouser press, TV, excellent wifi. All you need for a good night sleep. The breakfast was excellent in service and the food was fine. Freshly cooked and tea in a proper tea-pot. It...

We had a lovely weekend at this characterful old Hotel last week, it was such a nice surprise to find it. The exterior may need a bit of a paint but everything else was great, and the interior is such a change from modern chain Hotels, which all look the same. The highlight has to be the open fires in...

Following a Christmas where my wife and I hadn't spent much time together due to work commitments, I looked for a weekend in North Yorkshire and picked a lovely spot. The hotel staff were super and the room was great. Lovely shower. Breakfast was very good also. The hotel was a stroll from the centre, and Ripon has some delightful...

Even in January light this hotel looks inviting from outside. Inside the staff are welcoming , friendly and helpful. After 5 hrs car journey we were served tea by the fireplace and were so contented to be there that we did not venture out to have dinner in one of Ripon restaurants. The meal in the bistro was good, reasonably...

How nice it was to arrive at The Ripon Spa on a cold, windy January afternoon to find all the staff welcoming, the room just right and a cosy log fire in the sitting room where we read through the weekend papers over cups of tea. Sunday morning breakfast was delicious too, served in a lovely sunny dining room overlooking...

Once again my wife and I spent 3 nights at this charming hotel and once again we were not disappointed. The room was spotless and was serviced each day to a high standard. The breakfast choice is quite exceptional and served to their usual high standard. The deal included a voucher for an evening meal in the Bistro. The staff...
