We were a party of eight & organised lunch at The Wheatley which was fantastic. We all had different starters which were very tasty, a couple of us then had the Sunday roast which was locally sourced lamb & was delicious with lots of fresh veg & huge Yorkshire puddings. The other mains included fish pie, steaks, lamb shank &... More

We stayed as a wedding party occupying 7 rooms in August 2015. The service was excellent with good food and drink, and nicely equipped bedrooms. The hotel were very flexible providing us with a private room for 16 guests for a pre-wedding dinner - the night before the wedding at East Riddlesden Hall. You can tell that this is a... More

The Wheatley Arms was nearly lost , then a strong local campaign led to it's refurbishment. The Inn does the difficult trick of looking after locals and welcoming visitors. The building has a crisp well maintained feel to it. The heart of a good Inn is the staff and the fairly young team are both efficient and friendly. Two points... More

My husband and I just stayed for two nights at the Wheatley Arms. I've just read some of the other reviews and agree with the comments. Only issue we had, as others have said is we found the room way too hot. Staff were super helpful and friendly! A shame we live so far away....otherwise we'd be back!!

We enjoyed a two night stay at The Wheatley Arms, and couldn't have been more comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful, from our telephone booking to checkout. The accommodation at The Wheatley is over a large, very busy, pub, popular with locals, but once you go through a couple of fire doors on your way upstairs, the rooms... More

We stayed at The Wheatley Arms overnight while visiting family in Ilkley. We had a lovely sunday lunch. The rooms are gorgeous. Everything from the monsoon shower, towels, decor and the bed. All good quality. Breakfast was cooked to order and also very nice. Our only complaint was the room was very hot and we couldn't leave a window open... More

The hotel, was completely refurbished just a few years ago with large dining areas a good and comprehensively stocked bar and smashing bedrooms. The money wasn't just... More

Just returned from an overnight stay at this lovely place. We couldn't have asked for a better room - it was beautiful. Everything was of a really high standard including Bath House toiletries that smelt amazing. Even hair straighteners provided! The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the freestanding bath amazing. Wonderful powerful rain shower double sized cubicle. We were extremely... More

We used this for quick overnight stay as my daughter was sitting equestrian exam nearby. Its chic boutique hotel which is welcoming, clean and well maintained. Nice little touches in bedrooms-dressing gowns, brownies, flapjacks and straightners.

We have stayed here twice with the same friends and we all loved it. We have stayed in both the superior and standard rooms and all were lovely, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The restaurant serves excellent meals and the breakfasts are great too. The location is perfect.....we took a short taxi ride into Ilkley and left the car safely... More
