We stayed for a couple of nights. Outside it says a very warm welcome, this is an understatement! We booked to come up and see our newest grandson and my birthday. The staff were wonderful they couldn't have done anything else to make our stay the best ever. We will definitely stay again regularly from now on. We look forward... More

Stayed for one night in lovely room with roll top bath - excellent value for money! The little touches made all the difference eg bath sheets rather than bath towels, towelling robes and lovely tea/coffee/cakes. The breakfast was fantastic - one of the best I have had in a UK hotel. Service was very good in the bar and at... More

A really good quality place to stay and at a reasonable price. We booked a double room at The Wheatley to attend a family wedding at The Box Tree in Ilkely this week and pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a luxury suite complete with a rather trendy retro red Bath in the room Room 11)!

This is a great place to stay for all the right reasons however the bedrooms do get VERY warm and airless. Cannot open the windows wide due to child lock and we were both not feeling well in morning.

Although the Wheatley is effectively our 'local', previously we have been less than impressed by the menu and have been infrequent visitors. Our latest visit with some friends was a very pleasant surprise. The menu has certainly improved since our last visit, and there was a good variety of starters and main courses at reasonable prices. I chose a slow... More
