We stayed at the Crescent Inn in July. We had a lovely stay and I've already recommended it to everyone I know!
I was a little worried when I booked it because it was brand new and had no reviews, however, I was really impressed. Our room was immaculate and beautifully decorated with furniture full of character and everything we needed and more – huge bed, iron, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities (including biscuits too!), bottled water (still or sparkling), free wifi, quality toiletries, a choice of newspapers and a large flat-screen TV. We even had a view of Ilkley Moor which added to the experience! The only downside with the facilities was that the TV only had basic terrestrial channels but apparently Ilkley doesn’t receive any freeview channels at the moment, until the digital switchover in Sept 2011, and the staff were very apologetic.
The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and really friendly. Whenever we needed anything they were quick to assist us and, as guests at the hotel, we felt like we got special treatment in the bar and restaurant - when we booked to eat at the hotel’s restaurant ‘Le Bistrot Pierre’ we were shown straight to our seats by the staff who recognised us, despite walking in after another group of people. The meal was absolutely stunning – the restaurant is highly recommended!
Breakfast was also stunning with a choice of anything we wanted from the breakfast menu, all cooked fresh and included in the price of the room.
Being situated in the centre of Ilkley, the hotel is the perfect location for going out for drinks or food in the evening, not that you need to leave the hotel bar and restaurant if you don’t wish to! The only problem I could see with that is that our room overlooked the courtyard where the Yard pub is located. We were staying in the hotel over a weekend when they play music until 2am. This did get quite noisy but the windows were very sound proof so once they were closed you couldn’t hear anything and we slept very well!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crescent Inn and will definitely go back when we are next visiting the area. I highly recommend it to anybody – I’ve already convinced my parents to book a stay there!
