Stayed here to visit family & friends as I'm from the area but now live away. Booked direct for a bargain price of £45 per room per night including continental breakfast. It's in the middle of nowhere. Very friendly check in by James. Check out at midday which is a bonus. Booked the large family room with a view (Room...

The staff were very helpful and reasonably pleasant the room was small but bearable the shower was massive and both were clean that`s the best bit. Going for our evening meal on the first night half the menu was sold out the second night like most people we assumed it would have been a full menu but there was even...

Room was nice and comfortable ! Room had a lovely view and exactly as advertised. Breakfast was exceptional. Only issue was "Ben" Ben refused to accept Amex signature. Claiming that "machine said declined" When receipt actually showed "voided" which means that it was cancelled by operator. Most Amex issued cards (especially since 1998) are signature only. Even after advising "Ben"...

Breakfasts very good but spoilt by rats just outside window. Also had this problem whilst enjoying a drink outside when 2 rats fighting literally...

We had a couple of nights' B&B here in late summer. It's perfectly located overlooking Ilkley Moor, yet just a few hundred yards away from the edge of Ilkley town. Our room was comfortable and fine for a few nights, but had a view over the car park and recycling bins instead of the moor view we'd expected. On the...

I stayed here for 1 night. My father was born in Ilkley and his ashes were spread at the Cow & Calf rocks. So the hotel was an ideal place to stay. The hotel was really nice. The room was clean and tidy and had all the amenities you wanted. The staff were helpful and friendly too. The continental breakfast...

Stayed here on a Virgin 'Experience' Voucher bought as a gift and chose this venue for the breathtaking views. Don't want to waste as much time as I usually do writing reviews, as I'm still pretty mad. Ive stayed at cheaper places/B&Bs that have offered more than this place. Cut it short- Put in the attic up two flights of...

Stayed 2 nights recently and very happy. Asked for (and received) a quiet room, top floor under the roof. No noise from pub, road or fellow guests although you sacrifice a view. Bed a little uncomfortable and shower pressure poor otherwise perfectly acceptable. Wifi good. Restaurant also very good but no special menu at weekends so a little pricey. Don't...
