The restaurant has a menu that is limited, and subsequently poorly cooked. The average pub can offer better food. The whole hotel is old and in need of refurbishment. I was offered a small, very small double room and yet charge as though you have a fine room in a wonderful hotel.
Room 77was small,dirty,tiny wardrobe,hardly any shower gell,masking tape around windows,paint flaking off,soap dispenser at head hight !only one bedside cabinet,whole hotel needs revamping,running out of space !!
Given the previous reviews it met the standards and more. The best description is the staff were excellent but not intrusive. We were lucky enough to get a room upgrade which was very nice. We just found it friendly and relaxing and just what we wanted.
We traveled with my dog and were made to feel very welcome and all the staff did all they could to help thanks for a great stay!
Friendly, lovely gardens and very dog friendly.
Rude staff and it was so dirty
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.
the hotel was good value for money.we had an evening meal that was excellent in value and taste
Quality of the room, service and attitude of staff
Window in bathroom was very draughty but there was a fan heater in the room which solved the problem
in a very good location very central, clean and tidy hotel
in need of a little bit of a facelift, carpet in dinning room was tacked down in places.
The elegance of the building, the formal gardens and the willingness of the staff to be helpful and charming.
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.
Very comfortable,pleasant environment,excellent food,all in all a most pleasant stay.
the staff were very helpful and made our short stay such that if we need accommodation in ripon again we would definitly be back to this hotel
the lift is not the easiest to use and is very small
