Reviewed November 7, 2012

Stayed here for work last night as a single female. Beautiful room, fabulouse bathroom,comfy bed and free wifi a real bonus. I didn't make it to the restaurant this time but looked gorgeous and food in the pub was really good. (The girl behind the bar was really friendly and couldn't have been more helpful - so big thanks) I've already recommended to a colleague who needs to visit Ilkley next month.

We stayed for one evening. The welcome was warm and friendly at check in. Nice contemporary decor in this historic coaching inn. Bedrooms compact but more than adequate with lovely furnishings. House keeping team ensured the room was spotlessly clean. The quality bed linen and comfortable bed are unusual in inns, this was more like Hotel du vin!
We ate in the inn rather than the bistro though both looked equally attractive. This was excellent. We reserved a table. We had olives which were plentiful. We ordered a good bottle of Chilean Merlot, which was not over priced, with our pate. Main courses were wonderful Xin Xam (mild peanut curry sauce with tender pieces of chicken) and pea pilau rice/ poppadom and a steak and ale pie. Very generous portions. The pub was popular and the the blazing log fire added to the great atmosphere. Service was exceptional. Marco on his first ever shift has a great career ahead of him in hospitality. Attentive but discrete, friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant . We will definitel return. Meals served until 7.pm.
Breakfast was great. Lots of choice friendly service and a mellow start to Sunday.
There are lots of eateries in Ilkley, but this must be the jewel in the crown.Next time we will bring friends to share the experience. Highly recommended.

My partner and I were extremely impressed with this hotel, which offered a good sized, modern, clean and well decorated room with a large television and a very comfy bed at an extremely competitive price for its quality and location. The hotel scored especially highly in our opinion for getting all of the little things right that should be taken for granted but are often lacking, such as a reliable shower with good pressure and heat control, a wall heater that was fully controllable by the guest 24/7, excellent TV reception, WiFi that actually worked and was at least as fast as our broadband at home, and an excellent breakfast menu that could be enjoyed at any point within a three and a half hour period, as opposed to the single "crack of dawn" hour that is common at many other hotels. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay, and the room was serviced to a very high standard on a daily basis. We have stayed at two other hotels within the Ilkley area in recent months, but this one was the best by a massive margin and we look forward to returning next year when the Ilkley literature festival comes round again.

Room Tip: Although the downstairs bar was no bother, it might be a good idea to pick a room that is not too cl...

A period building which hides an excellently restored interior with beautiful rooms of a more than acceptable standard. All the rooms are named after local moors, we stayed in the Burnsall Room which was kitted out to a lovely standard - all clean and modern with a flat screen tv on the wall yet also period style furniture. The ground floor is split, one side restaurant and the other pub where the staff were all wonderfully friendly and helpful in both. The restaurant was amazing whilst still fairly reasonably priced. We ate here in the evening then walked into town and discovered the Crescent was not only one of the best restaurants in town but also one of the best pubs too. The Crescent is located at a cross roads in the centre of town and is perfect for access to the river, the moors, shops, eating, drinking....all within walking distance. However we booked through laterooms which stated 'onsite carparking' on the web yet upon arrival it didnt exist. There is free parking on the street across the road though which whilst not ideal is not a major inconvenience. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay again. Good value for money.

Thank you for your review and we're so pleased to read how much you enjoyed your stay and visit to our restaurant and pub. Thank you too for flagging the incorrect information about parking on laterooms which has now been amended. As you've mentioned there is free parking on the road opposite our building. We do hope to see you again soon.

The Crescent Inn was an excellent find. It is very well situated a short walk from Ilkley station.
My room wasn't huge, but was comfortable and quiet with a very well appointed bathroom.
The breakfast was beautifully cooked - although it was a bit too large for me.
I didn't have dinner, but the menu looked very good.
The cost for a night's stay was very reasonable given the quality.
I'll be back!

Had a great stay at the Crescent Hotel. The hotel is centrally located, but the rooms are quiet and very well furnished. Each bedroom is called after a Yorkshire Dalewhich is a very nice touch. Breakfast is served in the Bistrot Pierre and was perfect. There was a wide selection of dishes available and all were well cooked and presented. On the ground floor of the hotel, there was a bar which served tasty pub food and it always had a buzz about it. All the staff were extremely efficient and helpful.The only downside was that there was no hotel parking and we had to park on the street. In spite of this, I would recommend this hotel and willl certainly will be returning.
