General Information

The Craiglands was built in 1856 and was one of the largest and most finely situated pupose-built hydropathic establishments in the country. The first proprietors were the Dobson Brothers, one of the brothers being Dr Henry Dobson, a physician, who supervised all the treatments offered to patients. These included mustard pads, massage, and all the latest Turkish, Russian and Electro-Chemical baths. The systems, coupled with the "tonic" air from the moors had the effect of enhancing the popularity of this splendid hydro. The beautiful grounds were laid out with special attention to the requirements of invalids during the summer season and included croquet, lawn tennis and a bowling alley. There was also a large recreational hall for indoor sports, public concerts and theatrical performances.Towards the end of the century the popularity of the hydros began to wane and after the First World War the emphasis turned more towards Ilkley as a holiday resort. One recent visitor recalled her visit to the hotel as a child during the Second World War and described her delight at being offered a fresh orange. She also noted that at that time the Craiglands still boasted a Turkish Bath. Today the complete package of guest care continues and everyone can still enjoy the six acres of beautiful grounds, breathtaking views and excellent food and service. 24hr room service, onsite car parking and all areas of the hotel fully equipped with wireless Internet makes the Craiglands hotel the perfect choice when visiting Ilkley or as a base to explore Leeds, Harrogate, Bradford and the many beautiful moor towns.Special Hotel Features Contemporary, fresh modern environment Within easy reach of the M62, M1 and A1M Equidistant to Leeds, Harrogate and Bradford 200 free car parking spaces on site Set in the heart of Britain in the middle of the M1 and M5 corridor.Accommodation60 guest rooms including Executive upgrades and Suites Designated non smoking rooms Rooms with facilities for the disabled TV's with Sky Coffee and tea making facilities Private dial out telephones Trouser press Hair dryer 24-hour room serviceLocal tourist attractions include: National Museum of Photography Film and Television Royal Armouries Ilkley Moor Bolton Abbey Harewood House Howarth and the Bronte sisters Eureka children's museum Thackray medical museum Keighley and Worth Valley railway
