My husband and I just stayed for two nights at the Wheatley Arms. I've just read some of the other reviews and agree with the comments. Only issue we had, as others have said is we found the room way too hot. Staff were super helpful and friendly! A shame we live so far away....otherwise we'd be back!!

We enjoyed a two night stay at The Wheatley Arms, and couldn't have been more comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful, from our telephone booking to checkout. The accommodation at The Wheatley is over a large, very busy, pub, popular with locals, but once you go through a couple of fire doors on your way upstairs, the rooms...

We stayed at The Wheatley Arms overnight while visiting family in Ilkley. We had a lovely sunday lunch. The rooms are gorgeous. Everything from the monsoon shower, towels, decor and the bed. All good quality. Breakfast was cooked to order and also very nice. Our only complaint was the room was very hot and we couldn't leave a window open...

Wonderful powerful rain shower double sized cubicle. We were extremely...

We used this for quick overnight stay as my daughter was sitting equestrian exam nearby. Its chic boutique hotel which is welcoming, clean and well maintained. Nice little touches in bedrooms-dressing gowns, brownies, flapjacks and straightners.

We have stayed here twice with the same friends and we all loved it. We have stayed in both the superior and standard rooms and all were lovely, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The restaurant serves excellent meals and the breakfasts are great too. The location is perfect.....we took a short taxi ride into Ilkley and left the car safely...

Went for lunch after reading a good review in the Yorkshire Post. Took a while to find the pub but we were not disappointed. Lived up to its newspaper review. We were served quickly and food was excellent. I had steak and ale pie which was full of tender steak. My husband had fish and particularly enjoyed the cockle and...
