I visited the Fountain Guest House, Ripon. North Yorkshire with my partner and parents. Mark and I wanted a night away my parents wanted two nights. This was perfect not many guest houses will take you for just one night like to have you staying for two so this was a great start plus this was the only guest house I could find on the web site. The owner showed us to our rooms. We couldn't believe the standart for the cost it was very nice. We had the deluxe room my goodness it was huge. Very, very clean and spacious and everything you could ask for including plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits and bottles of water. Could not fault the breakfast all home cooked and fresh may I add. Cereal, fruit juice etc to start with. Only 5-10 mins walk from centre of Ripon and you can catch a bus to Harrogate please note you buy a return ticket and it lasts all day you can use bus as much as you like. Great weekend parking next to guest house very safe and close (my boyfriend always worries about his car, no need to worry on this occassion). There was no faults with this guest house as for value for money we will deffinatly be returning.
