Great quality stay in town centre hotel at budget price

Excellent value and no compromises on quality.

Might be noisy on a saturday night if your room faces the front , but that will always be the case if you stay in the town centre. Ripon is a picturesque, small cathedral town in a great location, so the Unicorn is a good choice to stay to both explore the town and go further afield. very convenient that food is available till 11pm, which is useful if you arrive late. Good quality and reasonably priced breakfast menu. Comfortable well appointed rooms and really clean. Nice staff, too.
