Good, friendly, efficient staff. Clean comfortable room, food excellent. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in early August 2015 and was impressed with it. Yes, it is a little old fashioned but that adds to its charm. The gardens are splendid. I have a gluten free diet and this was catered for without any problem. I would stay...

We are a family with 2 young kids and booked via booking.com Hotel is very tired and dated. Although staff very friendly and breakfast nice, didn't feel it was really suitable for young families. Our bathroom was also a fire escape route for the corridor which was a bit unearving!

I agree with your comments about children , there is nothing within the hotel for them . Fire escapes are a necessity and you could maybe had a choice to move room , when you checked in .

After reading reviews I was slightly disappointed overall. The staff we encountered were lovely, probably the best part of the hotel. Rooms; Just tired, the springs could be felt, pillows a little flat, furniture showing its age, blinds that don't block out the sunlight, small tv, and windows with gaps in. Also creaking floorboards means when the people above you...

The grounds of this hotel are lovely with well tended gardens and lovely croquet lawns. Although the hotel fabric could do with some tlc the room we had was clean, well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The food, although I was part of a large group was good and the staff are very attentive and helpful.

OK - I could pay £39.95 for a faceless room in a cloned Weatherspoon's but chose the Ripon Spa hotel for location and convenience. Family run and friendly. Beautiful gardens and croquet available.

2nd stay at this hotel this time for our 30th wedding anniversary. The hotel upgraded our room and also put a bottle of fizz in the room as a lovely gesture. We love it here and have booked again for our next day at Ripon races. A lovely little walk to Fountains Abbey is a must from the hotel too....

Visited the bar. Paid £15.20 for a beer and a gin and tonic. The bar man and was a very bitter and unpleasant man. Ruined the end if our evening, will never go return here. Only rescued by the friendly customer who showed us the lovely garden when nobody else seem willing to...avoid here if you possibly can
