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

We have stayed many times at the Masons Arms a sister Inn to the Wheatley and part of the individual Inns group, six in all. We thought that a change of scenery would be nice and plumped for a visit to Yorkshire. We stayed two nights the 8th and 9th May and ate in the restaurant on both nights. The... More

We stayed at The Wheatley Arms for a night away. We visit Ilkley regularly and have stayed in various places in the centre of town. However those places were fully booked this time so we opted for the Wheatley Arms which is just over a mile away from Ilkley town centre in Ben Rydding. I'm really glad we did as... More

even though we live locally we decided to stayover after dinner and we weren't disappointed by the room and breakfast. After visiting for meals with the children this was intended as a one off, maybe we'll have to stayover again.

Dined at The Wheatley tonight with a few friends. Though most of the staff were great one waitress was unbelievably rude to a friend. Once again the food was decidedly average. I think it's ok if you are a meat eater but the vegetarian fare is boring and pretty tasteless. The service is always very slow. They are busy because... More

We wanted to stay for one night near to Ilkley but I didn't start to look for accommodation until two days before we were due to arrive in the area. I got a shock to see that nearly everywhere was fully booked. Feeling that I had no time to research as thoroughly as I would normally like to do, I... More

Two nights last week on a golfing break and a very pleasant surprise. This is a working pub with an enthusiastic local support and excellent little hotel. Comfortable room was spotless but quite a climb up a rather steep stair to the second floor, might be worth asking for lower. But food made it special. Imaginative menu, informal setting of... More

We stayed last Sunday evening 16 March 2014. Excellent room, friendly and helpful staff - really welcoming! We ate in the restaurant and had a delicious meal - breakfast the following morning was also top notch- cooked to order and superb choice.We will certainly be visiting again.
