The Black Horse Hotel
Ranked #4 of 6 Otley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Had a great stay in the recently refurbished Black Horse Hotel. Handy in town with secure parking in the old stable/garage area. Received a warm welcome, our en-suite room was light and airy with a comfy bed and sofa. Large bar area with real ale and great pizzas. After a good nights sleep we tucked into a excellent breakfast with local sausage and bacon. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the manager went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable.
Walking in or visiting the Otley area we would recommend the Black Horse Hotel, is great!

My husband and I just returned from a night at The Black Horse Hotel, in Otley. It is under new management.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to assist with anything we needed!
The room's decor is basic, but is new and very clean. The room also had a comfortable bed and nice pillows.
The breakfast was nice. Self-service fruits, juices and cold cereals plus coffee, tea and eggs, toast, etc. cooked to order.
There is a bar on the main floor. I was a bit concerned about bar noise when we arrived but we were not able to hear it in our room.
The bar also offers food (burgers, etc.) until 9 p.m. The food was good and reasonably priced.
The hotel has free Wi-Fi in the bar and off street parking, around back.
We are already planning a return visit this fall.

While visiting family I decided quite last minute to stay at The Black Horse. This is the first time I have stayed but the new owners Steve and Lynne were so welcoming - nothing to was too much trouble, my children were also fully welcomed. Our room was very clean which was also tastefully decorated. We had the made to order stone baked pizza which was amazing, the children's meals were also very tasty which were served very quickly by friendly efficient staff. I will certainly return to the Black Horse, I can without doubt recommend this to others.

We stayed in this newly re-opened Hotel in Otley for the arrival of the Tour de France in July 2014.

The building itself is really impressive as is main bar with some classic features.

The rooms were very fresh and extremely comfortable for our stay and we received a friendly welcome from our hosts Steve and Lynn.

Beer was excellent and the large breakfast was superb too.

Highly recommend the Hotel........and I will be back!

Room Tip: Good room overlooking the main street

We visited the Black Horse just as it reopened and the place was looking great with some lovely furniture in the main bar and the beer was excellent. I had never tries Black Sheep Velo before and it was a cracking pint. We tried a pizza (stoneground) and it was perfect and a great price. As it had just oened we expected things to be a bit chaotic with the Tour de France going on but everything was bob on! we had a lovely spacious room on the second floor with a great shower and a terrific view of the high street. A great weekend and we will definitely be back.

We have just had a great party at The Black Horse in the first floor function room. We were lucky enough to hire it for Le Tour, and had a superb view of the race whilst soaking up the great atmosphere in Otley. Steve and Lynn, the new owners, couldn't have been more helpful, checking that we were happy with everything throughout the day. The staff were friendly and efficient despite the fact they had only opened 2 days before! We enjoyed several pints of local brew 'Black Sheep Velo' and fab food - the burgers, from the local butchers, were awesome. The room was spacious with a private bar and dance floor, and would be great for an evening party - we are already planning one! A massive 'thank you' to everyone at the Black Horse for making our day truly memorable!

I stayed for a week, and I was in town on business. The hotel, bar and restaurant were all closed up and dark when I arrived at 5 on monday. I phoned to be let in the back door. The place is closing down, the bar and restaurant all closed down and the chef let go. The only member of staff left was willing to do me a cooked breakfaast, but not before 8:30 am, which is no good as I had to be at work at 9am. I got cereal. The room was clean and all OK, and there was a good TV and wi-fi. The place was deserted all week until a massive loud 18th birthday party on thursday night which went on until 1am. I wouldn't stay there again even if it were open.
