Reviewed 12 August 2013

Came here the other weekend for a break with my children aged 10 and 8 and our first trip away with our 6 month old Border Terrier... Wow.. The room was very clean with lovely fresh bedding and a nice size. We didn't eat here as we had a walk out.. but I have to say it looked and smelled lovely.. I love Ilkley - such a beautiful town and a lovely variety of shops and all in all a lovely weekend away.. Dalesway is the perfect location, right next to the river, the Dalesway walk, park, shops and restaurants.. Will definitely return.. and bonus we met 2 lovely people who come here regularly with their Border Terrier Gem.. Loved it and they were lovely company.. Thank you for a lovely weekend.. and highly recommended is Lishmans of Ilkley.. Quality butchers, deli and pie shop...! Went in for a pack of sausages and £70.00 later I walked out... but the some of the best meat I've ever bought...

Stayed at dalesway for our wedding anniversary. On arrival we had a very warm welcome. The room we stayed in was one of the more expensive ones and it was comfortable and clean, we even had a memory foam matteress which was so comfy!! It had all the facilities in the room you would expect, iron and board, tea coffee facilities, tv with satellite and a power shower and even a whirlpool bath which was fantastic!
We had a few drinks in the bar that evening after we'd been for our meal to a restaurant and the atmosphere was lovely and the locals and staff were very friendly.
Our breakfast was delicious and great value for money.
There's no parking on site however you can park on the street or church opposite for free!
Overall it was a fantastic hotel and I would definitely recommend to everyone!

2 Adults & 3 Dogs had a wonderful time. This hotel has it "off pat". from the lovely welcome from the young man behind the bar to the evening bar staff to the "nothing is too much trouble" attitude at breakfast. Their attitude to our dogs is well rewarded by the owners care in keeping them all under control (who wants to spoil a great venue ?) - felt a bit sorry for the resident lab though, luckily he is so laid back.
Only suggestions I could make are 1. Put a sign out the back to remind some owners to clean up after their dogs (there are always some) and ensure residents have the latest password for the wi-fi connection. Minor but I did promise to put something - continuos praise can get boring !!
I have already highly recommended the Dalesway and will continue to do so and would go out of my way to stay again when we are next in the area. Many thanks to all involved.
Dee Carpenter. Telford. Sam Jack & Ben send their best too !!

We stayed at the Dalesway for one night at the start of the Bank holiday weekend .We were able to park directly at the back of the pub/hotel which made for a good start.We found the young lady on reception to be extremely helpful ...she checked us in in a very professional manner and gave the impression nothing was to much trouble .Our room was on the top floor . The room was very clean and huge ... Double bed ,sofa ,tv ,dressing room !!! The shower room was very clean and although not luxurious it was perfectly functional .The only little niggle we had was with the curtains (too thin and could do with black out linings ) .We paid £49 for this room and it was worth every penny.The staff were really friendly and helpful ,even let us use their salt and vinegar for our late night supper (from over the road next to co op ,great pizza & chips ) . We love Ilkley , it has great bars restaurants and shops ,surrounded by beautiful countryside ,walks etc . The Dalesway is half the price they charge over the road and in our opinion is a bargain !

Very welcoming and amiable staff, situated right in the heart of Ilkley town centre, not much in the way of parking, but one or two spaces outside you can use, I parked over the road in a church driveway. there is also a town car park behind piccololinos (Itialian) very near by. Accomodation was a no nonsense but functional room, with TV, tea making and travel lodge style towels and soap. (I brought my own stuff for washing as anticipated this) There was also a small arm chair. Definitely spacious enough but bathroom was very cramped. The bed was not very comfortable, fine for one night (to drunk to care!!). The Dalesway is a pub, but is also something of a local institution!! and serves coffees and light bites during the day too, I would of thought a lively bar to watch sporting events!! The two owners run this and another late night bar and both are open till late. Ian and Ian are two very interesting characters! worth popping in just to meet them in my view. Didn't eat here during the evening but breakfast was old school yorkshire!! damn fine!. I love that you the sort of tea pot you have at home, not one of those crappy little metal things you sometimes see. All told it does what it says on the tin with a big yorkshire welcome and a hearty breakfast!!

Room Tip: Book early if you want to get a park spot next to the hotel.

A no nonsense comfortable hotel. Staff were pleasant and rooms clean. Excellent value for money and if you could make it up the stairs after the breakfast you are a better person that I am! It is a pub and we could have expected some noise but we were pleased when a lively bar's celebrations didn't make it upstairs to disturb our sleep.
