This hotel really is on the riverside and is in a lovely setting. On both nights that we stayed there, we ate outside, close to the river and overlooking flowers. For any visitors with children, the lovely park is a big asset. It is a very easy walk into the centre of Ilkley. There is a wide variety of dishes... More

Stayed over the weekend with our grown up family, as they were taking part in a competition close by. The staff were welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. My sons dog was also welcomed warmly. Breakfast was nice and the pub meals in the evening very good pub food. We hope to return before the end... More

Good location near the river and plenty of free parking. A friendly welcome , but room (double , Number 12) at the top of the hotel was tiny with an extra chair crammed in and the smallest wardrobe/cupboard I have ever seen in a hotel. Main gripe was that the loo seat was missing a back hinge (Pointed out but... More

A small hotel on a riverside location, we enjoyed excellent fish and chips from their own shop attached to the hotel, which we ate in the beer garden, before going into the comfortable bar where we sampled most of the cask ales on offer. Good fish and chips, good beer and pleasant staff. Nothing to complain about, a very pleasurable... More

we often call in to The Riverside Inn after visiting the park with he children next door. The staff are always friendly and what we can gather - the food looks very nice too. The pub also has a hotel and parking.

Booked a table for 5 for 5.30 on Saturday 30 July. We decided to walk down a bit earlier for a couple of drinks before sitting down in the separate dining room. I have dined here once before as had one of my friends. It is certainly in a lovely location next to the Riverside Gardens and river Wharf. We... More

We stayed here previously in 2014 and were told at the time that as we have the dogs and in order to get a bigger room that we should book well in advance, hence for our two night stay in July 2016 (for a dog show at Harewood fairly local to the hotel) we duly contacted and booked a room... More

The bar is your basic Yorkshire pub style with wooden floors and traditional tables and chairs. Dogs are welcome which is a bonus. There is a selection of pub grub that is just that. The big bonus is that there is outdoor seating on a terrace that faces onto the River Wharfe. To top that the terrace enjoys the evening... More

Friendly and helpful reception staff. Clean but average rooms - shower head and toilet seat broken. Nice and quiet room - lovely hotel, great location but bar and restaurant a bit shabby. Great breakfast. Reasonable rates
