The initial impression on arrival is that it is not in the most attractive of areas. However, the Hotel is excellently situated for visiting attractions such as Soltaire and the 5 Locks.

We stayed at the Wheatley Arms during the Ilkley literary festival and it was the perfect base during that time. Our room was beautifully kept, with a gorgeous roll top bath, and the food we had in the restaurant was top notch.

We were waiting way over an hour for our...

It is difficult to know where to begin because we rated the Wheatley Arms the highest possible rating in all categories of their Bar, Food and Hotel "Spill the Beans" comment card. Across the board it is a credit to the general management and training that is clearly apparent. This hotel has all the comforts of home: upscale modern bathroom,...

We were a party of eight & organised lunch at The Wheatley which was fantastic. We all had different starters which were very tasty, a couple of us then had the Sunday roast which was locally sourced lamb & was delicious with lots of fresh veg & huge Yorkshire puddings. The other mains included fish pie, steaks, lamb shank &...
