“Faded glory, but OK for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for one night whilst at a wedding close by. We checked in at 11.30 pm via the night porter, a process that took nearly 10 minutes, not exactly fast. (Friends had worse, as the night porter prioritised the bar over check in!!!). Room was big and airy, decor if slightly dated but the bed was great and the view stunning. Breakfast was Buffet style, but did have plenty of fresh fruit which was a bonus.
Not a bad hotel, not great but I would recommend for the price. (£99 for two inc breakfast)

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Both my new wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of getting married at the craiglands. Easy to find from the centre of ilkey and with both a beautiful garden area and fantastic views. Inside, the building has a charming character, with more than acceptable facilities. Even more importantly, both ourselves and our family and friends were greeted by kind and helpful staff, and that effort was maintained by the staff throughout our entire stay. Staff were helpful, friendly and genuinely wanted us to have a fantastic day and we were not disappointed. Every guest who attended has left us with kind words as to how relaxed and pleasant they found having a wedding at this hotel. We, ourselves, could not speak more highly of the Craiglands, and we offer them our sincere thanks for making our wedding day run perfectly. We will be sure to return soon and we would definitely recommend holding a wedding day or wedding reception there

We stayed at the Craiglands for 1 night after a car rally which started from there. We were welcomed on arrival by friendly staff and after the car rally we sat down for Sunday dinner for 200 people. The food was excellent, freshly cooked, hot and served very quickly and efficiently. Our room was clean and very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was lovely. All the staff we met were friendly, polite and efficient. All in all a really nice stay

This is the first time that the leeds mg car club has used this hotel as the base/ accomidation/ and catering for this annual car run. It will not be the last time of using of the hotel. They were fantastic in accommodating over 150 cars and the occupants. Some of us stayed over night on theSaturday thro to the Monday morning. The rooms where exellent, but the food was exceptional. We all dined on the Saturday and I must say what we ate was very good nothing left on the plates!! It was nice just to kick back and be looked after( very well).
On the Sunday the day of the run, those that had stayed we greeted by an exellent breakfast. Everyone was cater for, all dietary aspects! We had a lovely car run the organisation was fantastic, thanks mainly to our chairman Charles and Gilly. Paul and Sue where a great help in getting thing sorted early doors. Infact everyone that helped in the organising of the run where brilliant, well done!! The staff then had the unenviable job of serving late afternoon a dinner for over 200 people. This was done without a hitch, the guys and girls that served us did so in a very professional manner. The dinner of roast beef and for afters sticky toffee pudding was exellent. Well done the catering staff the food was delicious, service flawless. Well done to the staff of the Graiglands you all deserve a medal. The dinning room was decorated beautifully. Ok the drinks a little expensive but you are in a lovely old hotel which is catering for your needs! Everything about our w/e stay was catered for, staff very friendly, nothing too much trouble. We will return!!! Xxx

Room Tip: As for an superior room they are larger, view not so good but rooms are super. You only need it for...

We got married at the hotel Saturday 26th July, ourselves and many guests having arrived on Friday. Nicky and Clare did a great job checking all the information and arranging seating and table plans in advance. The wedding room was set up absolutely beautifully for us in line with our colour theme. Chris was outstanding in orchestrating the whole wedding day from beginning to end. The wedding breakfast was served promptly and effectively and was of high quality. Nothing was too much trouble and the day went brilliantly. Well done to the craiglands for making our day so special. Paula and Chris

There were 7 of us travelled some distance to attend The Boogie Nights function 19th July. Whilst the music, food and actual night was very good as a whole the group found the bar prices extortionate. We were all prepared to come to a couple of other functions ie Hollywood night and Dirty Dancing. However, charging 3.50 for a lemonade is disgusting. We couldn't afford a decent night's drink as a result of your pricing. Very disappointing. The service with the food could have been better but for the number of staff that was on for the night it was acceptable.

Beautiful old building and well presented reception and brasserie areas are let down by old, shabby rooms that are filled with cheap, decrepit furniture and very old bathrooms. Such a disappointment. The 1960s function room addition needs pulling down 20 years ago! However the staff were very friendly and helpful.
