    Exterior could do with some tlc and some air fresheners in the corridoors. Otherwise the staff were friendly, the breakfast very nice and the bar food generally good. Very nice garden to relax in if the weather is nice. The staff were always friendly and helpful.

    The fusty smell in the corridoors.

    Excellent breakfast buffet (though mushrooms a trifle intimidating). Very attractive gardens for walking or sitting (and the possibility of croquet). Five minutes walk from market place.

    Exterior could do with a touch of paint here and there.

    room was adequate the breakfast however was excellent buffets can be poor but here the staff brought the food through in small amounts rather than by the tray full and as aresult the food was very fresh and of suberb quality.

    Room was serviced before we had checked out.

    Room was clean and comfortable. View over garden was lovely. Easy walk into town. Very close to Fountain's Abbey and Studley Gardens which was our reason for staying there.

    The hotel is well situated for access to the town and has beautiful, well kept and extensive gardens with three croquet lawns. Most rooms look out on these. Staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel has the potential to increase its star ratings, but this would take capital investment to upgrade the fabric.

    The hotel was ok and the staff were very helpful. The gardens were nice and well main tained. The food in turf bar was ok but not what we were expecting. Drinks on terrace at 5pm was nice and relaxing, It was ideal for trips to Fountains Abbey, Newby Hall, Ripon city centre and would stay again, but a bit pricey for std of room and hotel.

    Our room (58) was ok, but fluff on carpet for whole 3 days suggested that hoover not working. Windows not seen a lick of paint in years and when opened were filthy dirty! First night it rained and gutters leaking so kept awake by spout dripping onto lead flashings. Not clear in hotel info that pool is a public pool up the road. The spa name gives rise to one thinking spa treatments available, but only a name apparently! The restaurant is not open through the week and Turf Inn open to locals and menu just an old fashioned bar menu. Upset by locals sitting at bar swearing f and c words when we had paid over £350 for 3 nights b & b and then expected to eat in a tatty bar or go elsewhere. Bar man did offer to serve us our meals on the terrace after first night but it is not good enough, our first night had been spoilt. If Ripon Spa wants to charge 3 star prices it needs to improve. It is a nice hotel but spend some money on it or put your prices down. We have stayed in better b & Bs.

    Clean, comfortable hotel with a bit of character, notably in the lounges and breakfast room. Five minute walk to town centre. Staff very helpful in returning my wife's ring which she left behind.

    We were extremely pleased about our choice to stay in Ripon Spa hotel.The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Very dog friendly too. We had a great time and would recommend the hotel to others. Location was an added bonus. Plenty of parking. Reasonable price for weekend stay. Buffet breakfast was delicious.

    Fresh fruit was a wee bit discoloured, not too fresh.
