The room was clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was good, with a choice of cooked food. We had a great birthday dinner with a bottle of bubbly to...

On arrival I had no towels, one arrived. The room was shabby with stained carpets windows that were dirty and didn't shut. The traffic noise therefore was horrendous and I hardly slept. The lighting made the room even worse it was very dingy. In the morning the shower was cold and almost overflowing. Also the previous guest's used toiletries were...

My wife and I had been doing some shopping in Otley and watching Emmerdale being filmed, quite exiting for my wife as it involved a man in a mankini. It was a cold day so we decided to visit the Black horse to get warmed up. It was most welcoming with a real fire burning in a wonderful fireplace. They...

Upon arrival our included breakfast was challenged as was the price that we had paid even though we had provided the booking confirmation. Went up to the room which was clean and had comfortable beds....

Had lunch here today and what a great choice it was, the portion was good, the chips were really thick cut and the haddock was huge, a beautiful piece of white fish complimented with a nice pot of peas. The service was prompt, polite and professional and reasonably priced at just £8.50, well recommended to make a stop here if...

Business Meeting and lunch for 7 people . A great welcome, lots of space in the upstairs meeting room. A screen and projector supplied. Fabulous buffet and regular attention from Marie and her team made the whole experience very relaxed and enjoyable. I recommend The Black Horse for business meetings.

The newly refurbished Black Horse Hotel is set in the heart of the friendly market town of Otley. Under new management from July 2014, the Black Horse is ideally placed in the heart of Wharfedale, just to the North West of Leeds and only 10 minutes from Leeds/Bradford airport. Otley is a great base from which to explore the countryside of the stunning Yorkshire Dales and the many attractions of both West and North Yorkshire, with Leeds being only a few minutes away and the beautiful Spa town of Harrogate only 12 miles away. The family friendly pub serves locally sourced food from 9.00 Am - 9.00 Pm, the specialities being fresh made, stone baked pizzas and burgers from our local award-winning butcher. We have 9 guest rooms, with 2 being family suites each with 2 separate bedrooms. All our rooms have newly refitted en-suite facilities. The function room on the first floor can host meetings, parties and other special occasions, with capacity for up to 125 people. ... more   less
