We stayed one night in Christina and Ian's house because a colleague's wedding. We loved our stay, Christina and Ian are very warm and welcome host. The house is lovely, located in a quiet and beautiful area, and the room is very big and comfortable, plenty spaces. We had a wonderful night and will definitely visit again if get the chance in the future.
I stayed for 10 days whilst on a course locally. I was made to feel very welcome and they were even kind enough to let me use their kitchen in the evenings so that I didn't have to eat out every night. The room was lovely, exactly as described, with a fantastic view.
Christina and Ian were fantastic hosts - made us feel really welcome, helped us with directions around town, but were also in generaly lovely people to meet! The room is just as described, very clean and homely and with a lovely view of Ilkley Moor. The Yorkshire Dales were beautiful, and we'd definitely go back and stay here again.
Very pleasant--we enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Christina and Ian!
Everything about our stay with Christina and Ian was perfect. The room was lovely, the breakfast was great - especially the home-baked bread - and the hosts friendly and helpful. The location was great also. Walking distance both to Ilkley Moor and the town. Ian and Christina both had good local knowledge of places to see.
We hope to return for a longer time.
Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Help communication too. A real pleasure to stay.
Christina and Ian made me very welcome in their lovely home in Ben Ryhding, Ilkley. The room and house is *exactly* as described, the bed very comfortable, and their hospitality warm. They are highly recommended.
On behalf of my Mum who stayed while visiting relatives in the area: Staying with Ian & Christina was delightful. They have a lovely, comfortable and relaxing home with great views within walking distance of Ilkley and the moors.They were most welcoming and I felt comfortable and relaxed in their company. They did all they could to make my stay enjoyable even giving me a deck chair for the garden and offered books to read. I’ve never stayed in such a good atmosphere and couldn’t fault my first bnb experience. Many thanks Dot.
