Arrived in middle of a Christmas fair which made parks no a challenge. Lovely greeting when we checked in and the room was a wow when first saw it. But when looked, a couple of little picky things made it less than perfect, a nail in shutter rather than anything to grip on and bed needs a new mattress. Had... More

We had a wonderful room (No. 5) overlooking Ripon Cathedral. (I was a little worried we would be woken up by the bells but it was absolutely no problem, they are VERY quiet) There was a beautiful 4 poster king size bed, a sofa in the window, lovely drinks facilities and bath robes in the bathroom. The hotel is extremely... More

This is a beautiful old building. We had a superior room, the character of this hotel is amazing. We stayed only one night and had our evening meal here which was lovely. The walk to ripon market square takes 10 minutes and the cathedral is a. Ust visit.

Historical building just next to the cathedral. Our bedroom was quirky with its old wooden beams. The bed was comfortable and the facilities were good. The staff were great - my husband wasn't very well so they made sure our room was ready so that we could check in early. The staff on reception were helpful and caring asking how... More

Pulled up at the car park and it is 30 feet from the Cathedral front door - very impressive. Older property and a few areas needed some TLC (flaking paint and uneven floors) but nothing beyond expectation for the age/location and it did not detract from the visit. 1/4 mile walk to the Market square/restaurants/shops and got to see the...

We arrived mid afternoon to be greeted by lovely lady on reception who showed us to our room which was up quite a lot of stairs but was well worth the climb it was very large and had lovely bathroom. The room overlooked the lovely gardens at the rear of the hotel. The weather was not too good so we... More
