Yesterday on a drive out we came across the Riverside Hotel in Ilkley and thought it a beautiful setting. We went in for something to eat and was surprised by the cleanliness and layout of the place. We weren't staying there, so can't comment on that side of the hotel but the food, we had home made steak pie was... More

Stayed here with my husband from 18th to 22nd August. Situated along side a large field/park and next to a river, ideal for an evening stroll and within a short walk of the local shops and cafes.We found it to be an ideal location for visiting other towns, such as Rippon, without having to drive too far. It does say... More

I love this place. Have been staying there three times now and everytime we have been enjoying the stay. The room was very satisfying, and so were the hosts. The Fish and Chips is very good and so were the beer :)

We stayed here with family recently and it was a great break. The hotel is nicely decorated and and in a great location, it also has a lovely outdoor seating area. It's dog friendly as well so this was a plus. Very nice food and really friendly staff. We would stay here again.

Recently spent two nights at this hotel while visiting friends who live close by. It's nicely situated along the River Wharfe, with great amenities. Only a short walk to the high street shopping district, but it's nice and quiet.

This is a family run hotel cum pub in an exceptionally beautiful location. I had an attic room which, although cramped, had been decorated to a high standard, including the small en-suite bathroom. The downside is that there is no lift and there are many long narrow staircases. Although there was free internet it could not be received in my... More

I'm always staying at the Riverside Hotel whenever I'm in Ilkley. Rooms tidy and clean. Enjoying the parc near by, the river, feeding the ducks. It's a great place to stay here if you have a child. I can say that I had the best fish and chips ever from here, the batter was delicious, exactly the right thickness. I... More

Great room with a fine view at the top of the hotel (lots of stairs so let them know if this is a problem). Friendly staff helped with the bags and batman chatted away. Magnificent fish and chips and a fine selection of drinks all at a reasonable price.
