Brassiere 1

Brasserie1 is an informal, contemporary recent addition to this grand Victorian hotel. Brasserie1 and the adjoining Bar have French windows which open out onto a terrace at the front of the hotel with views of the hotel's gardens and the Yorkshire Moors beyond. Decorated in a pleasing mix of modern and traditional design with the benefit of a light bright environment and on winter evenings an open fire adding to the ambience. The menu combines simplicity with excellent locally sourced ingredients and offers a relatively narrow selection to ensure a consistently high standard with the choice changing regularly to maximise the use of produce appropriate to each season.

Not great

Start with positives :- It’s only a 10 minute walk to Ilkley , which is a lovely place - also has a great local train network. Parking is plentiful. That’s about it! The hotel was empty but tried to ... more

Welcoming Hotel

The property is in a great location both for visiting Ilkley and the surrounding area. Parking is ample, but offloading the cases at the front door, before parking in the car park would be advisable. ... more

Dear Gill B, I an so sorry that you felt that the hotel has not been suitable for your stay. We do not have music playing after midnight and on the evening you mentioned it was at 9pm and the event finished at 11pm. I will speak to the maintenance and housekeeping team to look at the bedroom you were staying in. Please accept our sincere apologies as we do work very hard to keep up with these issues. Kind regards Chris Quinn
