We were disappointed in the cleanliness of the apartment, the toilets were covered in hairs and there was a lot of residual grime around the fixtures. the surfaces had been cleaned, but it was not a thorough cleaning. There was no milk on arrival which would have been a simple but welcoming touch. The whole apartment appeared to be run "on the cheap" with most of the complimentary toiletries nearly empty. The apartment was quite pleasant to stay in, once it had been cleaned but I don't expect to spend my holiday cleaning other people's grime. The flat is very central for Ripon within easy walking distance..
If you want a peaceful relaxing stay this is it. We couldn't fault St.Wilfred's loft. Everything you could possibly want is supplied. We all loved it. We came for my son's wedding at the Old Deanery. This and the town centre are only 5-10 minutes walk with a lovely supermarket just a few minutes across the road.
This was our second stay at St. Wilfrid's Loft. There was plenty of room for our family (4 adults and 1 child). The bedrooms are on separate floors which gave us all some space. It is a very convenient location within walking distance to shopping, pubs and museums. An assigned parking spot is a real plus. We will definitely visit again!
Ripon is an interesting town with good real ale pubs and a Cathedral with a lot of history. It is also close to good roads if traveling a distance.
My wife and I discussed the difference between the category of 'Very Good' and 'Excellent' and we decided only by a very fine margin that the former was correct.
The reason for this was only one set of keys, only 2 hand towels for 4 people, however there were enough bath towels. The parking provided for one car is excellent, however as in our booking of 4 people and 2 cars the local parking is terrible for the remaining vehicle. The apartment was a delight and would stop again.
Flat in very close proximity to central Rippon. Easy access all amenities. Flat itself in beautiful condition, well looked after and very comfortable. Spiral staircase to upstairs bedroom may be unsuitable for elderly couple. All in all we were delighted with our choice.
