Chevin End Guest House
Ranked #9 of 10 Ilkley B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 September 2017

This has to be the worst bed and breakfast establishment my husband and I have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many.
Two plus points firstly - comfortable bed and acceptable breakfast. The remainder of the requirements of any hospitality facility fall seriously short.
The welcome? We received lacked any degree of warmth, we were directed to our room, position of the door key was shown and whoever it was departed swiftly. I had to quickly approach him to ask the times for breakfast.
The room looked a sorry state - very dated furniture, grubby cushions placed on the bed, unbelievably old armchair, dressing table chair must have been from the fifties.
The hot water almost reaches boiling point I am sure. A notice stating this should be placed for safety reasons. The underneath of the loose toilet seat was brown and disgusting. Television was very small.
At breakfast time we had to walk up to the main house (no real problem). On entering the main house the smell of damp is very strong. The dining room is very dated and also very busy which meant people were being asked to return a little later - a walk back down for some I presume.
The owners/manageress came to us with a pad and pencil at the ready - no 'good morning' or smile.
The people who run this establishment need to take a course on hospitality, certainly refurbish our room and I advise anyone considering staying in this area to book one of the chain type lodges where you will receive a higher standard of accommodation for a smaller fee.
We will not be returning.

Room Tip: Don't even consider booking one.

When you arrive at Chevin House, the first thing that strikes you is the amazing vista all round the property. You can see for miles. We drove into the courtyard and were immediately greeted and shown to our room which was in the new block, beautifully converted from old farm buildings around another courtyard.

The room was large, very clean and had everything in it, including a small porch to hang top coats, wet things, store buggies, etc., hair dryer, tea and coffee facilities and windows on two sides. Attached is a wet room with good (and hot!) water supply. There was plenty of room for the dog who enjoyed three very comfortable nights with us.

It was also extremely quiet with the exception of short periods of activity at Leeds/Bradford Airport which, in our experience, was less than an hour once or twice a day.

Breakfast was excellent with a good range of cereals as well as a piping hot full english. It was served over a good period of time, so if you wanted to leave early or enjoy a bit of a lie in, you could.

At the end of the drive is a pub serving good ales (Timothy Taylors) with a large, but slightly expensive menu. Sitting in the pub garden for a beer or a cup of tea was very pleasant.

My only minor criticisms are a shortage of hooks in the wet room to dry large towels properly and a few more tea bags would have been useful.

This is a good spot to stay for traveling all over the Dales and, in my view good value for money, especially if you have pets with you. I thoroughly recommend it.

On arrival we were shown to our room in the 'new' block. Initially the room just looked rather tired.....but there was a catalogue of issues...dead insects on the window sill, duvet not put into the cover properly, pillows flat, mug chipped, and mirrors smeary. Then the bathroom....lots of mold, taps and loo not properly clean....it felt really uncomfortable being in there!

The breakfast was OK...hot and freshly cooked. However, I had a filthy fork with food on it...which was replaced for me on request.

We had booked for two nights, but I'm afraid we couldn't stay the second night!

We stayed here for two nights recently with our two children. We were in the new block (I think) and we were pleasantly surprised after seeing pictures that suggested this place was tired (it was al that was available for the dates we required).

It's difficult initially to work out where you are meant to go when you arrive. You turn in for the guesthouse but then are met with a multitude of buildings and no clue is given as to where you're meant to go.

The host came out and was ok - but didn't have much Yorkshire warmth. After showing us our room she departed sort of like she'd had enough of us.

The room is fine - two beds as required but no cot bed provided and we ended up buying a travel one as we have other uses for it coming up. It only cost £30 and you'd think they'd just get one to use now and again if required.

Breakfast the next day was fine, but one egg per plate and when my husband asked for toast we got 4 slices - between 4 of us. Despite there being 4 of us, we only ordered 3 breakfasts as I often share with the baby, but the portions were a little meagre for that. On the second day there were bananas available but I don't remember seeing them the first day.

After we departed the dining room, my husband told me he'd had to go through several bowls to find one that was clean for our daughter to have some cereal. I have to say, the next day I had a similar ordeal. It just appeared that dried on cereal hadn't quite been removed by the washer/dishwasher.

The wet room is nice but as with all wet rooms, you have the issue that the entire floor gets wet and then you have to use the sink without socks on. Therefore we put a towel on the floor (that we'd used to clean something up) and on returning later in the day found that it hadn't been replaced, just hung over the sink.

The bed had also only been loosely made.

The next day was much the same. I don't know if it was us and the host just didn't take to us, but she didn't seem to want to get involved in chit chat or go through the pleasantries.

For breakfast we requested beans/scrambled eggs and toast and again it was 4 slices between us all and me sharing with the baby. I had thought because I wasn't ordering a full breakfast that there would have been toast on the plate and then the 4 slices...I almost felt that I'd have been told off if I'd requested food for the baby.

Overall, it's a peasant enough place to keep your head down and the pub just a short walk away is excellent for dinner. But there were no extras to make this a memorable stay. The biscuits weren't replaced, everything seems to be done to the extent that it's as little as possible. Maybe they are run off their feet. It just seems a shame as they must have invested heavily in the new block and all that's required is a bit of extra effort to make this a really lovely place to stay.

The views are awesome
