Fountain Guest house has beautifully decorated rooms. My room was light and airy, clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were wonderful. They knew all about the area and made some fantastic suggestions for things to do. I'll be back!

We stayed at this Guest House last night as we were going to Ripon races for the day. The owner (Scott) couldn't have been more friendly and helpful - he even gave us a lift to the racecourse!!! Great location if you want to walk in to Ripon town centre, it's about 10 minutes maximum. Thanks Scott, see you again...

Stayed in a twin room with a newly revamped bathroom. Nicely done up, comfortable and reasonably priced. Loved the extra touches like the cotton wool in the bathroom, so thoughtful. Great breakfast the next day!
