Nice friendly pub. Lovely location on the river. Clean. Nice staff. Food nice. Not sure the locals liked having small children in the pub. Great fish and chips during the summer. Plenty of room nice open fire. Seemed popular with walkers.

Spent my 70th Birthday (2 nights 2 - 4th December}. We had a lovely room = clean and the breakfast was great plus the bar/restaurant food at night was brilliant - plus a log fire - what more can you want. The staff were extremely pleasant. Barbara Basnett

Stayed here as a couple for a two night weekend break. Couldn't fault this place at all. Check in was fast and efficient and we were shown to our room within seconds of arriving. We stayed in room ten which was a superior room, with lovely views across the park. A very big comfortable bed, flat screen TV and complimentary... More

I had a really lovely stay at the Riverside Hotel Ilkley. I thought everything was excellent: the room was lovely, clean and warm; the staff were friendly, thoughtful and helpful and the food was great – really delicious home cooking and good size portions at a fantastic price. The hotel is in a great location, just a short distance from... More

Our plans to visit Northumberland for three days en-route to Scotland were cancelled at short notice (just a few days) thus we decided to go via Yorkshire or more specifically Ilkley as we have friends in the area and it would provide opportunity to visit them. As we would have the dogs with us we needed a dog friendly hotel... More

Having read some of the reviews before booking here we had high expectations - especially regarding the breakfasts. Unfortunately, the old saying 'don't believe everything you read' came into it's own here. The breakfasts were well below par. Tasteless orange juice (more like cordial), shrivelled up bacon and sausage - no need to carry on the picture is set -... More

Stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to Ilkley. The room was comfortable and clean with the biggest and most comfortable bed ever! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The bathroom had a really powerful shower in and was much welcomed after a walk in the wet and windy moors. The food was good pub food and freshly... More

Room was on the small side with a very small shower room, but clean with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was tasty and quite generous. Easy parking and in a quiet area. Wifi worked well. I'd actually rate it at above average, but not excellent or very good. Not expensive at £80 per night and dogs are welcome. I wouldn't rush... More
