Visiting from London for a funeral, I spent one night at the Wheatley Arms and was reminded why Yorkshire is such a great place to be. The room, restaurant and bar were all elegant and homely without being fussy, the bed was so comfortable and the staff friendly and hospitable. Hope to return before too long for a longer stay.

Our evening meal at the Wheatley suffered from two acts of misrepresentation that spoilt the experience. One, we ordered two SMALL fish and chips. The portion of fish was reasonably small but the servings of chips were gargantuan. This is not what we wanted. We are trying to curb our granddaughter's excessive appetite and my wife was totally over-faced. Chefs... More

It took me a long time to decide which hotel to go to in Ilkley, no regret choosing The Wheatley Arms in a quiet part of Ilkley only walking distance from Ben Rhydding train station. The pub is family friendly but with decent selection of local ales together with a decent Mulled wine in December. If you are not lucky... More

Stayed here when we attended a wedding at Bolton abbey- the location was great as it was a short ride in a taxi! When we arrived check in was quick and organised and we went up to the room. The room was great- clean and modern. A little random that the bath was in the bathroom but quirky! Arrived back... More

We came here for my birthday weekend as I had recently been here for a superb meal. We ate in both nights. Despite other recent reviews, we couldn't fault either the food or the service, and this included being there when numerous Christmas parties were occuring and Still we were served well and promptly. Breakfast on the first day was... More

Apart from the fact the food really was below average the service was appalling !!. I am in this industry and therefore tolerant to how hard the job of waiting on is but this... More

We had a beautiful lunch of beer battered fish and chips, delicious. It was so good my husband ordered it again for his supper! Room 4 which... More
