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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

Recently stayed here on a weekend break with my partner and loved it. The room we were given was clean and bright, I was a bit worried as I had read reviews saying the beds were not comfy but ours was perfect. The breakfast was one of the best we have had in a hotel . We found the staff...

We stayed at the craiglands on a Tuesday evening. When we arrived we spent 15 minutes stood at reception whilst the receptionist was having a telephone conversation over a wrong booking with a group of guests that were also at the reception. Eventually we were given out room card and told to clear the balance on the room there and...

Only stayed two nights in this old Victorian hotel. Easy to find, just up the hill from the railway station. My room was the smallest I have ever stayed in, just enough room for a double bed! However it was clean and nicely decorated with a modern bathroom and a great shower. I was travelling alone but if I had...

We were contacted by hotel staff prior to our stay requesting credit card details (despite Booking.com having taken them and passed them on) to guarantee our stay. We were then contacted AGAIN a few weeks later asking for credit card details and were told they had no record of having called and taken them previously (although its on my received...
