This is an acceptable Hotel for an overnighter. It's in a leafy road and very close to Town one direction and country walk the other. It's very traditional which we liked. Just to warn people it's a steep walk into Town down the hill. Breakfast was cooked to order which was a treat and it was very good, full Yorkshire... More

Nice hotel in a quiet leafy road close to town centre and close to good walks on the moors. Ilkely is a wonderful town with an amazing array of eateries all within walking distance of the Rombalds hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean with everything one could need. Our only complaint was that... More

After our last experience in a Best Western establishment, this was a refreshing and pleasant stay in a lovely small hotel. On arrival we were informed we had been upgraded at no extra cost. The room was well appointed with tasteful decor and the King size bed was very comfortable. We didn't eat dinner but the competitively priced breakfast was... More

If you want a great base for walking the moors, with paths two minutes from the door AND close to the town centre with its pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops, then this is it. Turn left out of the door and you are climbing through bracken and heather to the hills, turn right and you are walking down to the... More

The hotel tell is situated on Wells Road with great views of the moors, that's if you get a front room. Unfortunately my room was small and compact and overlooking a flat roof and the car park. The bathroom was tiny and the shower cubicle was the smallest I have ever used and I am a slim person! The staff... More

This is a lovely hotel if you enjoy traditional styling and decor. We booked a delux room which turned out to be a very spacious and comfortable suite. With a 4 poster bed and baronial styling, our stay was a unique experience. Breakfast was both buffet and table service with a varied menu, beautifully presented and consistent with the Yorkshire...

Stayed at Rombalds for one night, and had a wonderful stay, tucked away just 10 min walk from the station, lots of space and areas to relaxe in/outside and just 5 min walk from the house where Charles Darwin stayed awaiting publication of "on the origin of species " Lots to see and do plus good quality English breakfast.

We had a family stay here with 3 rooms. Great welcome when we arrived. Very clean rooms, all in great condition. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty. Easy walk down the hill into Ilkley town center with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from. Highly recommended.
