“Good to know about.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Saw the review in H2B magazine and decided to try the stonebaked pizzas. They were big, tasty, filling and excellent value. Barman was extremely polite and welcoming. The only snag was having to wait about half an hour from ordering to eating which was daft considering they weren't that busy. Nevertheless I shall certainly go again. Beer good value by hotel standards.

Booked two rooms approx 3 months in advance and checked the week before that everything was OK. Turned up on the day to be told that our rooms were no longer free and had been given to someone else. The lady said there was nothing she could do but she was sorry and hoped to see us again!! She recommended another hotel which we went to but that was not really up to scratch. Interestingly this hotel said it was not the first time The Riverside had sent them guests in similar circumstances.

My friend and I stayed here for one night before starting to walk The Dales Way.
The room we had was at the very top of the hotel and was very small and extremely hot.
The decor was clean and modern although the carpet was stained.
Bathroom was tiny and there were no toiletries.
On the plus side our suitcases were taken up and down the 3 flights of stairs to our room and the room was very quiet.
Breakfast was very average with no veggie alternatives to sausage and bacon offered, no yoghurt or muesli, no choice of preserves....we were just given packet marmalade and no selection of herbal tea, only fruit teas.
All in all a very average experience.

we live about ten miles away from Ilkley and go there quite a lot.
we have eaten at this hotel before and were quite satisfied,but
had sunday lunch today and it was awful.
I had to ask for table to be cleaned as was very sticky,then we
both had roast lamb,very tough(definitely not lamb,maybe mutton)
it came swimming in gravy with hard potatoes,and soggy veg.
no service whatsoever,will not be back again..

we stayed for 4 nights, the room was very good, lovely bed & large sofa & the en-suite was also very good, the room was a good size & very clean. Lovely beer garden to sit in with drinks & a meal, the staff were very frendly & helpful & all set in a lovely location by the river. The breakfast was also very good. An ideal base for exploring the dales & moors. Could not faut it on anything.

We only stayed for one evening and found the room very comfortable with a large bed and sofa. The en-suite was nice with plenty of hot water and a good shower. The breakfast was good and we didn't have to wait long. I would definitely return to the riverside Hotel should the need arise. :D

The most striking thing about the hotel is that it is situated in a beautiful area. The Riverside Gardens are lovely.
The best part of our stay was the very comfortable bed, for one or two nights it is a good base well placed for the town. We found the restaurant and snack bar to be a bit overpriced, especially as there are more competitively priced eateries within five minutes. Breakfast was good, and the service acceptable. I would recommend this hotel on price and value.
