Stayed over the Whitby gothic weekend Lovely little pub and very warm and homely and great welcome from the owners. Rooms cosy and comfortable and have every thing you need . Over the two nights we had a slight problem with a nuisance drunk (told the owners and they was quick to sort ) Excellent breakfast and evening meals (... More

We only stayed one night and have no complaints. Our room was comfortable, not large but perfectly adequate.The decor generally is certainly a bit dated but we felt it would have a certain charm with a little decluttering and modest refurbishment. Dinner and breakfast were tasty and well presented. We agree with some aspects of previous reviews; the young couple... More

We have just stayed at the Wilson Arms for a short break to do some walking in the area. The room was warm and comfortable. Ensuite shower and toilet a bit on the small side, but perfectly adequate and clean. The breakfast and bar meals were very good and plentiful. Dan and Dawn are very friendly and obliging. Ideal for... More

We are sorry you were not completely satisfied with your stay. The rooms are not an option on the online sites but if you contact the hotel a room with a countyside view or a sea view can be arranged if available. Also there is use of an iron and ironing board if asked for. not quite sure what you... More

We had a one night stay at the Wilson Arms recently & were very disappointed at the standard of the room. Very dated decor, the television didn't work, the light over the sink ( which was in the room) didn't work, the shower cubicle was tiny & the loo was a bad flusher!! We realise that this hotel has recently... More

Having read some of the previous comments I felt I must put my views forward. We spent a lovely couple of days at The Wilson Arms. It was a very friendly place and the food and service was excellent. I believe that the owners haven't been in very long and it is their first business venture. Well folks, give them... More

Just thought I would ring and check on the dog policy before booking a room via hotels.com........two rooms available so hoping one was doggie friendly. Made no difference as they were fully booked !!!! Apparently happened last week too!!!! Not the customers problem needs sorting out. What would have happened if we had just booked and turned up ????

The online booking system is out of our control aswell, we can only complain to them as we did and now hopefully everything has been resolved, but negative feedback was unnecessary when you hadn't booked or even stayed here More

What to say, i have thought long before writing this review so as not to be unfair. We travelled and booked the hotel as part of a group and at the last minute one couple were informed they had been double booked and therefore did not have a room, was not the best start. Rooms overpriced, could do with a... More
