Friends and I were starting our Dales Way walking weekend and this was a fine place to start. We were well looked after on our Friday night stay here. Good menu, reasonable priced range of traditional pub fare. Room was comfortable and well enough equipped. Lovely breakfast with cheerful service. This hotel is set in a beautiful location, by a...

This was our second Christmas visit to the Riverside Hotel and it is still my favourite place to stay in Yorkshire. After a cold dark drive the place is warm and welcoming with Christmas lights outside and a friendly welcome, a log fire and a nice old-fashioned pub inside. We had Room 10 which has a huge bed and views... More

I recently made a group booking at the family run Riverside for an annual Christmas weekend away with a walking group. We chose it due to the proximity to the town centre of Ilkley which has a good range of pubs, shops and restaurants, and its excellent access to good walking country. The owner, Kristine, could not have been more... More

We spent six very enjoyable nights at the Ilkley Riverside Hotel. A friendly, comfortable, family-run hotel - we shall certainly make a return visit. The hotel is situated alongside the River Warfe and very close to Ilkley town. Our ensuite room was of a good standard. The food in the restaurant is reasonably priced and of excellent quality. We can... More

Good location for us for a 2 night stay while we pursued some family history. The property is in an attractive setting and as the name says, right alongside a river. A very friendly welcome from the staff set the scene for us. The room and bathroom might best be described as on the small side but we managed by... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location, the room was very poor standard, bathroom very small and shelf missing nowhere to put toiletries, wardrobe was closed using blu tack, was definitely not worth £80 a night, plus forgot to to us a key to let ourselves in, would not stay here again

Stayed here as had a business meeting and had previously dined here so had high expectations. Room was very nice, spacious and the bed very comfortable and one of the bar members helped carry my bags upstairs for me - nice touch! Price was very reasonable and the service as before was top notch, and the food likewise. Breakfast quite... More

We stayed here at the start of our Dales Way walk; whilst the room was clean one didn't get the impression that it was used that often. Breakfast was better than average, more than acceptable, but not really that memorable. More of a pub with rooms than a hotel with a bar.

I do wonder what people expect who are not of the area. This is a small hotel with a large local clientel in pleasant riverside surroundings. Easy access all round. Food well presented on hot plates and plenty of it. Have been a number of times over the years and always had a warm welcome. Obviously being local have had... More
