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 ???? No... 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

Good selection of real ales, home cooked food which was excellent. Lovely atmosphere and children made to feel welcome. Old type of pub with a homely feel. Needs updating of which they... More

Be careful when booking as we were somehow double booked having booked in April we were contacted the week before Whitby Regatta week to say sorry you have no room! A family get together planned months before could have been ruined with no one taking the blame and out of pocket my parents having to luckily find accomodation but obviously... More

We have just returned from a week in Whitby and had what can only be described as a pleasure to eat here on 2 evenings. Excellent menu with plenty of choice but small enough to allow the kitchen to do its job properly. Cooked to order and cant fault the meals we had. Some might look at the menu and... More
