We really enjoyed our stay at the Wheatley Arms. Located on the outskirts of Ilkley, within walking distance of the station and town centre, it was only a short (uphill) walk to the moor making it a good centre for walkers. Not a hotel but a large, lively pub, it was busy when we arrived, with a Sunday afternoon jazz... More

We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights for a family wedding locally. The rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. We had a meal the first evening, we would certainly recommend the restraunt. There was a great selection for breakfast. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We will certainly stop here again.

Stayed a few times at this place. Great freshly prepared and cooked food. Good selection of ales on offer. Reasonably priced. Rooms clean and high standard. Breakfast is plentiful and lots of parking on site.

We stayed in room 7 for 3 nights. Shower wonderful and perfect after long walks on the moors. Extremely comfortable bed, and great sleep every night. Great location from the base of the moors and a 15 minute walk to illkley centre. We ate 2 nights and had a beautiful meal, the breakfast was excellent every morning - by far... More

My husband and I stayed overnight. Had a very enjoyable three course meal . The room was very attractively decorated with some nice finishing touches. We reported a lack of hot water in the room which we discovered affected the hotel, but unfortunately despite the efforts of the manager who kept us informed was not resolved by the morning. So...

I have tried it several times to give it the benefit of the doubt. Soup for lunch is unappetising. Chef can use a frying pan and that is it. Food served on wooden boards. Chips were half cooked and just not crispy. The beer battered fish was disappointing. It just doesn't get any better so I will continue to use... More

Lovely hotel that has all the service and attention one could require. The rooms are lovely and clean and the food is served all day. The ambiance is so comfortable that it is like being at home but with all the hard work done for you. Could not fault anything

The Wheatley Arms is an impressive old building a mile out of Ilkley centre in the quiet residential area of Ben Rhydding. Recently refurbished, it has an open-plan layout with several interesting rooms linked around a central bar area. The natural wood and stone give it a rustic feel and the staff are all very friendly. It serves real ales,... More

Hi Matthew Thank you for your recent review. It was great to hear that you felt able to recommend us to others, and you are right in pointing out that we are very much a Pub Restaurant with letting rooms that are individually styled and furnished to a high standard. We always attempt to give the highest level of service... More

We have just returned home after a lovely 2 day stay at the Wheatley Arms, staff couldnt be more friendly and they were always there to make sure you had everything you needed. We stayed in room 4 with its own balcony and the room was large and the decor and furnishings was lovely, it also had a gorgeous deep... More

We went for a meal here over the bank holiday weekend. Beautiful place with lovely décor but the poor attitude of one waitress really let the place down. It's fairly pricey so we expected good customer service. We don't expect anyone to wait on us hand and foot, just a smile and a more friendly attitude would have been nice.... More
