Visited Craiglands with our dancing group and had a lovely week-end. There room was large and clean, with comfortable beds and a view out to the garden. The food was excellent and beautifully presented at dinner and there was a good choice at breakfast - the cooked food was really hot! The Ballroom was beautiful and I would definitely recommend...

Also with the sequenc dancing group! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good: well prepared and tasty. Service was slow on Saturday night when there was a wedding on as well but otherwise good. Room was fine with good view from second floor, but needed a light above one of the mirrors in the bedroom. Plenty of... More

Checking in told us all we needed to know, what a fantastic experience. Friendly staff, great services, great location and simply the best hotel bed we have ever slept in. Catered for our every need (we're not unreasonable people) and it was a fantastic venue for our friend's wedding.

Just spent three nights at Craiglands as part of a sequence dancing group and having read the reviews prior to our visit, we were expecting the worst. However, we could not really fault our experience. The staff were friendly, welcoming, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent - well prepared and presented and served on hot plates, which is often... More

Seeing some of the negative reviews after we'd booked a night's stay, we didn't have very high expectations. However, we arrived to a warm welcome from the only person who seemed to be around on a Sunday night, a young girl on Reception. It wasn't that easy to find the car park in the dark but when we did it... More

A friend and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and were very impressed with our visit. We do tend to travel quite a bit and feel that we are more than qualified to recognise good hospitality and good food when we see it. There is a lovely atmosphere to this hotel from the moment you enter. We were... More

I am afraid that this noble establishment is in dire need of some TLC. It is like going back in time to somewhere near 1978. Needs bringing up to date, and a really good, deep clean. Basics - like coat hooks which are dangling on one screw, water that takes 10 minutes to warm up, just need attention. Too big... More

I recently attended Craigland's for a friends wedding. I was very disappointed with the whole experience from start to finish. I recommended this hotel to my friend as I thought, at the time of booking, the hotel was very well run with a good reputation for weddings however from our experience this is not the case, firstly I would have...

Dirty, used venue facilities before our event started, hotel entrance was a rubbish tip and overall little genuine interest in helping to make an event special! The event planner, Nicky didn't pay attention to important detail, was impatient going over plans the day before & seemed to find it difficult to cope with more than one event at same time.... More

I came with a group of friends for a birthdayparty held in Ilkley and had a really nice 1 night stay. The reception staff were very welcoming, the room and the hotel was lovely and the breakfast was particularly nice - hot food and hot plates to match! It is a mile to walk into Ilkley and the hill is... More
