Visited the hotel for a birthday celebration on a Dinner Bed and Breakfast package with friends using a groupon deal. The room met our expectations and whilst the room was a small double bedroom the bathroom was recently refurbished to a high standard. The evening meal and breakfast provided excellent value for money. Hotel staff all very helpful and polite....

We held our wedding (Ceremony and Reception) at the Craiglands on 15 November 2014 and could not be more pleased and happy with the day.

I organised a dance weekend at The Craiglands during October 2014, for 48 people. Everyone made compliments about the hotel for their rooms; the food; dancing facilities and the helpfulness of the staff. What few minor issues some of the guests may have had were dealt with immediately. It can be very stressful organising a holiday for 48 people, but...

We were then left to enjoy a selection of cheese tuna and tomato sandwiches with fresh scones and little cakes. Coffee was plentiful and the...

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and our 17 month old child and we absolutely loved it. Not only is it the perfect location to walk into Ilkley for a bite to eat, drive to places like Bolton Abbey, Ilkley Moor or Skipton, the hotel room was huge, the food was really nice (the chef even cooked one...

Just returned from a lovely weekend at the Craiglands. It is a very old hotel so you have to appreciate some of the drawbacks of this. On site parking is close, if you arrive in the dark not very well lit though. The rooms vary in size and quality. My room 136 was an ample size and the bathroom had...
