My husband and I spent three very relaxing days there a couple of weeks ago. The staff were very helpful, the room clean and any requests dealt with immediately and without fuss. The room and en-suite were a very good size and were given a given ground floor room when requested. The large regency style lounge was a super space...

The hotel is a fantastic building in lovely grounds. The staff are attentive and friendly and the breakfast was good quality. In my view the management/owners are missing a trick, Ripon is in a great location and not served by good hotels, this place has the opportunity to be a great destination, just needs some investment for a major refurbishment...

Stayed here one night. I was very impressed with how polite and friendly the staff were. Room was a single but more like a double, great facilities and overlooking the croquet lawns . Completely perfect view and a faultless breakfast (best mushroom I've ever tasted !).

lovely hotel in many ways, the staff, the grounds, the food all very charming. Don't think you are entering a modern, swanky new build, its a building with character and age, with quaint subtleties that won't appeal to all. Value for money, i would say without doubt.

Stayed overnight whilst visiting family in Ripon. Very helpful friendly staff and large bedroom with wonderful views. Everything spotlessly clean. Bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and thick fluffy towels. Plenty of choice for breakfast all well cooked. Will definitely be back to stay again in the not too distant future.

My company booked the hotel and on the photographs it looked of a reasonable standard. On the positive the staff were lovely and helpful, plus the breakfast was good. Unfortunately this place had a real musty odour throughout the public areas and the decor left a lot to be desired. I got to my room which had wallpaper hanging off...

I have stayed here on and off for 6 weeks whilst a family member was ill. The staff are wonderful, especially Phillip (restaurant manager) and his colleagues in the restaurant, and Angela on reception, who were very helpful and courteous. However, a couple of incidents marred everything good about the place. 1. One room I was in, the shower wasn't...

We stayed here last weekend to celebrate my brother's birthday. Although the decor in the room looked a little tired, it was clean and enjoyed an amazing view of the luscious garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and will undoubtedly go back for another visit soon.
