“Accommodation is fine but not the priority at this inn”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We gained a clear impression from the moment we arrived that the rooms at this inn were not the management's priority. No real reception area and the welcome was not exactly gushing as the staff are busy focussed on the Bistro Pierre which is the number one priority here. Our room was comfortable, boutique-style, clean and a little cramped. Breakfast (served in Bistro Pierre) was excellent and residents can choose anything they wish from the extensive and interesting breakfast menu.

We stayed at the Crescent Inn for just one night and I wish now that we had stayed there longer. The staff were very friendly and helpful, everything was very clean and the room was lovely - my only criticism was that it was quite noisy in there - not traffic noise but a generator or something had to be on so there was always this background noise. Having said that it was not irritating enough to prevent you from sleeping- the bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. The location of the inn is perfect for exploring Ilkley, although there is no parking at the inn there are plenty of free places to park. The food was outstanding and the service was brilliant. We would definately go back.

Chose The Crescent because we were having a meal at the Box Tree and it is in walking distance. The restaurant looked very nice and the rooms comfortable. It was a very warm summers night and we had to have the window slightly open which then meant we heard the very noisy patrons (outside) from the nearby pub which kept us awake until 2pm. Then a delivery to Boots the Chemist (opposite) woke us up at 3.30pm. All in all a very poor nights sleep.
I appreciate that these things are outside the control of the hotel but it is something that would stop me staying in the future.

One of those rare occasions when high expectations are exceeded. Loved the stylish and spotless rooms, the impressive restaurant and the efficient but friendly service. Combined with a trip to the Brontë parsonage and Marston moor. Highly recommended.

We just stayed at The Crescent in Appletreewick room. It was delightful. A large airy room with everything we needed. The bed was especially comfortable. The hotel is superbly located close to shops and riverside walks. The pub and adjoined bistro were also top notch as was the breakfast. To cap it all, the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Chose this hotel on Trip Advisor reputation and we weren't disappointed. Small, boutique style hotel with 11 bedrooms. We had a superior room (Grassington) at the rear of the building and enjoyed a quiet night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. This room appears to be larger than most of the others available and was perfectly acceptable for a short stay; I would like to say the room was well-proportioned but since it is built on a curve, it has a rather quirky shape and feel.to it. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was very enjoyable, with a good choice of fayre. There is no on-site car parking but free parking is allowed along the street opposite, though this may involve a bit of a walk. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms to rear are quieter. Superior rooms bigger.

Been back to the crescent this weekend, yet again can not vault the hotel. Rooms are very clean and decorated to a high standard all rooms are different. The breakfast is second to none and the staff are very pleasant and helpful, the waitress at breakfast was lovely. We took family with us this time and they shared our views we all had a great time. Thank you
