Lovely warm and welcoming bar to come into from a dirty wet night outside! Good beer and prompt service
Disappointing food! A fish selection with leathery cured salmon, overcooked squid and tasteless fish followed by inedible haddock cooked to a crisp through. Burger was fine but chips were cold as they were on our neighbouring table. Shame!
Location on top of the moor looking out over Ilkley. Food, the pub does a great burger and has a varied traditional pub menu. The cleanliness the rooms are great I've stayed in 3 different rooms all of them have been cleaned to a high standard. The staff, they are friendly and happy to help. The open fires in the pub they have two and it's lovely to sit next to them while the wind blows outside. They now have the option to have a cooked breakfast for an additional charge. This is great for those who like something hot and the full English was worth the additional reasonable cost. And as always the included continental breakfast was plentiful.
Great location, breakfast staff very friendly, beds very comfortable
Hand shower over bath, needed to have a curtain or screen to stop soaking floor. Not safe getting in and out of bath as high off the ground. Staff very busy as it was Sunday, so not able to check in early.
Room & bathroom were very roomy & comfortable
No TV reception & no staff to assist . Unable to phone room to room.
A very warm welcome, the atmosphere was relaxed, nothing too much trouble. The visit was made as comfortable as possible with late night access etc. It was certainly very good value for money and very easy to book on line.
I can find nothing to criticise.
Location is great
Cleanliness of breakfast area was poor. Décor of room needed attention, broken blind, flaking paint, cracked plaster etc. Full English breakfast should be included considering the price, even if room was in better condition. First time I've ever had to pay in full on check-in.
The hotel was faultless and good value for money. Your booking system was also excellent.
The hotel directions need reviewed - very confusing. This was confirmed by our local friends!
We loved the place and the scenery. Breakfast was fine and the staff were very pleasant.
Getting WiFi through O2 was unecessarily complicated and a bit slow
Location Food Staff
Continental breakfast only available. Skipton room has bath with shower attachment only - no stand alone shower cubicle.
comfortable room in a really well run pub/restaurant. Room was clean and modern and well appointed and very good value for money.
only the situation which is out of town but this is perfect if you were planning to walk on the hills.
The staff, food and room were excellent and location was superb.
Room number 1 is adjacent to the Kitchen Extractor Fan and it was very noisy form early morning up until around midnight - this meant that windows needed to be closed due to the noise and smell of the kitchen. Would stay again but with the proviso of a room on the front elevation.
The bar and food was lovely
The room was too small and poor
Helpful staff, and interesting location.
the atmosphere and the location
Very comfortable surroundings, log fires nice and warm. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Food very good (breakfast). Room o.k. taking into account it is an old property (odd windows) but perfectly acceptable.
Mattress was uncomfortable - would suggest renewing. (Room 10) Only stayed for 1 night otherwise would have asked to change rooms. Everything else o.k.
everyone was kind and polite, and helpful, food was very good, and the room was clean and very well presented, as was the bathroom, a very happy stay. I would say to anyone a great place to stay, good value for money, the inkeeper cow & calf is just outside Ilkley high on the moor.
there was really nothing bad at all, the only thing was the radiator in my room did not work, but they kindly gave me a fan heater that was more than enough,
Sky light windows in our room. Had to use a chair to enjoy the views. Over night stay it was OK! Some rooms had dorm windows with a better view.
Location was spot on Food was amazing Staff really friendly Rooms very comfortable Really nice rustic and traditional theme, very relaxing
Comfortable Clean Pleasant staff Warm Good facilities Lovely views Country pub/hotel Rooms are named after local place names
Could do with a bit of money spending on the place Located right next to the 24hour access and road was very noisy
Very good and comfortable hotel staff where all very friendly & helpfull. Good selection for breakfast & good menu for evening meals as well.
No windows in our room to see the veiw, only in the ceiling so we could only see the sky.
Nice rooms. Rooms were clean and spacious. Nice pub with good food. Lovely location
It was a shame you couldn't see views from the window. Staff were ok not the politest, most friendly or most efficient I have come across. The breakfast was adequate.
friendly staff especially in the breakfast dining room
nice room & ensuite. Beautiful location, scenery and good base for visiting Ilkley,Skipton, Grassington & Harrogate. Have stayed at Cow & Calf before and enjoyed it. Breakfast staff were pleasant.
Sunday roast (price £10.25) which we ordered at 6.00pm - advised no seasonal veg left, were offered a very large dish of garden peas with meal instead, after showing dissatisfaction were eventually given a bowl of cauliflower cheese,(they wanted to charge us £2.50 for it) also the meat & roast potatoes were barely warm. no-one came to check if our meal was ok or offered us dessert menu after waiting 30mins table was cleared and barman enquired if everything was ok!
Lovely cosy,welcoming atmosphere.Food good value for money...little gem
