The Craiglands Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Ilkley
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We stayed here for a wedding at Denton hall. Perfectly adequate for a two night stay, large room, slightly dated bathroom. Breakfast wasn't great, poor selection, things had either ran out or sat there too long. Shouldn't have to beg for coffee!

Nice staff and a great location; its a sort of shame really about the rest of it. Very very out of date rooms as is the rest of the hotel. Lupe warm shower this morning rather than a hot one. Looks lovely on the website and with an upgrade would no doubt be amazing. Overall however run into the ground and a wee bit depressing.

Room Tip: Gosh I saw a few of them and they were all fairy much the much I am afraid.

Had the misfortune to stay when there was a wedding reception on. The car park we were directed to is a rough piece of land in front of the hotel. Cars and minibuses for the reception were just abandoned anywhere wasting valuable space. As we had a long journey to get there not best pleased. We pointed it out on checking in and were assured something would be done..... It wasn't. We had to park on a steep slope with tree stumps sticking up. We had to struggle to get up to reception with our bags from there. It was bedlam whilst the reception was ongoing, children running about with ice creams from the van parked outside making a mess, slamming doors & running up & down the stairs. The red carpet outside was loose and a serious trip hazard. If you have an mobility or disability issues I cannot recommend this hotel. I think they're too concerned with weddings and the hotel part takes second place. I was very disappointed as we had afternoon tea there a few years ago and it was lovely.

This beautiful hotel overlooks Ilkley and although its in need of some tlc its still a beautiful looking hotel. It has the largest ballroom in Yorkshire and can cater for weddings and parties of upto 1000 people. The room we stopped in had been recently refurbished with new bathroom fittings and tastefully decorated, with a fold up sofa bed for additional family. We ate dinner in the hotel and our only complaint was that there was too much food, my partner had a gallon of soup and I had a full terrine of gorgeous ham hock. We both had rib eye steaks, cooked to perfection, but too many chips, too many mushrooms, and a half a tomato too much too. Breakfast was a buffet style with the usual, eggs how you like, local sausage, bacon, black pudding, beans etc.The staff were friendly and attentive and would we stop here again, you bet. Too much ambiance and character to miss.

My daughters wedding took place here last week. The staff could not have been more helpful. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. The rooms were lovely and clean and very spacious bathrooms made wedding preparations very easy. We were able to come and go as we pleased when preparing the reception room. My husband managed to lose his tie but within 10 minutes the staff had found it and handed it to reception!
This is a very charming hotel with a lot of character. We had a wonderful day and the staff at the hotel definitely helped. The manager was efficient and friendly and was available throughout the event as well as being present for breakfast service the following day! Huge thanks from all of us.

Room Tip: We had family with room all over the hotel and no one had any complaints

We stayed here for a wedding, and the everything was very nice. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The wedding was beautiful and went off without a hitch thanks to the hotel staff. Neat grounds, free parking, good breakfast buffet, and close to both the moors and the village center.
