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

We stayed here for a couple of days and what a nice place it is. The staff are friendly and the rooms are nice. Also the food they serve is very good and breakfast freshly cooked for you, not a buffet.

Stayed here the night beofre starting the Dales Way which is about 200yds down the road. Pretty beer garden, comfy beds, and just the most amazing chips in the world ever! Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The bar area has an ambience of feeling like you are sat in a lovely old train station. The river is literally... More

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
