As soon as we drove up the sweeping driveway flanked by the gently ebbing river, I knew we were in for a treat. The whole experience was pure heaven, nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was exceptional.

Hollie’s Review of Grantley Hall, Ripon
DanielleVisited February 2020
My partner and I visited with our baby for an early Valentine’s break. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish. Both of us agreed that the hotel was better than 5 star London hotels we have stayed in.
The staff were so helpful and welcoming, very professional but also friendly and down to earth. Nothing was too much trouble for them which really made our stay so much more special. The man on the front desk was so knowledgeable about the history of the building which we loved hearing about, he even gave us a mini tour which made us both really want to come back and explore the other bars and restaurants that we didn’t have time to visit on this stay.
The staff were also great with our little boy and made the hotel feel extremely family friendly. Great quality high chairs, and a proper cot in the room (and adorable hotel teddy bear!).
The hotel and rooms are so stunning and there is so much attention to detail; I could write on and on about it but you have to experience it for yourself. Food was also great; afternoon tea and restaurant 88 both excellent service and food.
Overall, the best luxury hotel stay we have had. Loved it, thanks Grantley Hall for a lovely stay.
