We wanted to stay for one night near to Ilkley but I didn't start to look for accommodation until two days before we were due to arrive in the area. I got a shock to see that nearly everywhere was fully booked. Feeling that I had no time to research as thoroughly as I would normally like to do, I quickly clicked on an available room in this hotel.
By the way - hotels in the area will be even more in demand on 4th and 5th July this year because of the 'grand départ' of the Tour de france.
The room was lovely.... it was not decorated in traditional 'hotel-style' but had a crisper, more modern look. Lovely bathroom, also (I did point out in the hotel's questionnaire that something more substantial than voile at the window would be preferable - but don't think that is sufficient to downgrade my rating).
We had not intended to eat in the restaurant but, having arrived a bit later than expected, we decided to book a table - the really helpful and friendly young staff members managed to juggle things and they got us a table within twenty minutes (it was a Friday evening). The menu was excellent and the food was cooked to order and delicious.
One further thing - there was a DVD and large flat screen TV - so we sorted out our own viewing for the evening ('Breaking Bad) - which was better than relying on what was on television!
