Stunning hotel set in its own beautifully maintained grounds only a few steps away from the cathedral. We had travelled to Ripon to visit the races so decided to make a short break by staying at The Old Deanery. No problems finding the hotel and parking was in a walled private carpark. We were blown away from our first impression...

We went for afternoon tea. Beautiful food and staff were very friendly from arriving to leaving. I thoroughly recommend eating here. Beautiful view of the catherdral and very quiet location. An amazing place to stay and eat and is so close to the city centre it is convenient for a weekend or a week of pure luxury.

The perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. Excellent organisation, very efficient, friendly and helpful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Wedding breakfast was excellent, good food beautifully presented and served. Our top floor bedroom overlooking the cathedral was spacious, very comfortable with good en-suite facilities. Thank you

The Old Deanery is very well situated in the in the centre of Ripon opposite the Cathedral. The service is very friendly and attentive. The hotel is set within a very nice garden and has a bar and restaurant and good parking. The breakfast is superb, especially the smoked haddock with poached egg and the Yorkshire Breakfast with Black Pudding.

The Old Deanery. What would you expect of such a name? 17th Century stone building adjacent to a church? Gothic arches, not a horizontal floor nor ceiling in sight, wooden staircase? If so, you will not be disappointed, and the church in this case is Ripon Cathedral - a romanesque/gothic marvel with crypt dating back to the 7th century. But...
