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)! Staff were efficient and... More

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. Which is a real shame as everybody makes a really hard effort to make sure you enjoy your stay. Even to... More

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

First visit with a party of six to dine. 7 til 10:45. Eating exceptionally good, leisurely, nourishing, and presentation great. Recommend the Scotch Egg and monk fish. Food cooked and no fear of undercooking, or leaving without enjoying food. Observed: place busy, and people emptied plates, nothing to discourage me eat dish on menu and sufficient choice without going over... More
