Ilkley Riverside Hotel
Ranked #7 of 10 Ilkley B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Four of us stayed here the night before starting the 82 mile Dales Way. This hotel is on the outskirts of town and beside the River Wharfe so it is very quite place to stay the night. OK maybe the rooms are a little dated, but this is a pub, not a chain hotel. With breakfast from 7-30am this is a great place for a early start to the walk.

We stayed here overnight and whilst the room was clean and comfortable, we were very disappointed with the breakfast. We were told that breakfast finished at 10am and when we arrived at 9:30am, we were greeted with a dining room full of uncleared tables and no one around. When we eventually found someone we were told that breakfast had finished at 9:00am. We asked if it was possible to have some and the manageress told us she might just rustle us up some scrambled egg on toast. When it came, it was the worst I have had in a long time and the toast was cold. We won't be going back there, that's for sure!!

Room Tip: Make sure you get to breakfast on time!!!

Had a very comfortable stay here, fab breakfast, excellent service and staff and the room was comfortable, clean and quiet with a good tv and nice decor. Nice powerful shower too. We live near Ilkley and needed a hotel for a couple of nights, have seen inside but not stayed in a number of the alternatives and are convinced this is the nicest. Others are either dated or in noisy locations. Would definitely recommend now for visiting friends and family.

We stayed for a couple of nights on the first weekend of October and thought the place was very good. You don't stay in a B&B in order to admire the bedroom furniture so we weren't bothered by it being not what we'd have at home. The basics were all there and correct: it was clean, warm, the bed (two singles zipped together) was comfortable, the staff were all friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was fine. I don't like electric showers much but this one was about as good as they get, with reasonable water pressure. The bar/restaurant menu consists of basic pub grub done well: we had lunch once which was good value and well cooked - my fish and chips were as good as the best my local chippies down south can produce.

The riverside location is excellent, perfect for walking and for kids or dogs, and only a short stroll to the town centre. Ilkley itself is well worth a visit in itself and is a great base for walking or touring around the moors and dales. If you're seriously into food and can't afford the Box Tree, the Ilkley Moor Vaults are a couple of minutes away and do top quality restaurant-style food at sensible prices.

We'd certainly stay again.

Having a great stay at the riverside hotel. Location fantastic.
The room very clean and tidy only complaint found the bed uncomfortable as it was two single beds together.
Will not let this spoil our enjoyment at the Riverside Hotel.
We had a fantastic evening meal also an equally good English breakfast.
Would stay at the Riverside again .

Room Tip: Good hotel if you have trouble with walking ask for room on first floor.

Excellent location next to the river and ideal for those starting the Dales Way walk. 5 minutes walk into town. Reasonable rooms and breakfast, but pub lacks character and atmosphere. Not particularly memorable.

A trip back to Ilkley where I was born found me staying at the Riverside Hotel with my wife. With fine surroundings and a homely atmosphere suited us well. The breakfast was superb, as were the meals we took there. Nothing was a problem, and would go back at any time. Within easy reach of the town, and great countryside around.
