The Good Hotel Guide 2011 and 2012
The Ilsington Hotel is featured in the Good Hotel Guide. One long-time guide reader wrote in and praised it for its ‘friendly staff, comfortable rooms and superb food’. Entry into the Good Hotel Guide is on merit only and establishments do not pay to be in the Guide making it impartial, prestigious and unique.
