The room was small and the bed was small quilt didnt really fit and it wasnt comfortable, had a lump in the middle. Couldnt get the telly work. Evening food was alright but expensive. In the morning we got a full english breakfast... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable 4 nights at the Wilson Arms which is under new management. Dan, Dawn and little Alfie all made us feel very welcome. 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

Just had a lovely mid week break at the Wilson Arms, great food (must be best fish and chips in the Whitby area) all the meals are exceptional and home cooked. Dawn and Dan gave us a wonderful welcome, which was increased by Alfie. Cant wait to go back again.

Location not really in walking distance to Whitby. I felt the standard of accommodation was rather dated and did not warrant the £80 price for a double room with breakfast. This opinion was echoed by two couples we chatted to at breakfast.

We stayed here for one night bed and breakfast whilst visiting friends in the area. The rooms are old fashioned but very clean and comfy. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were friendly. The reason we have given it 3 stars is because our room was above the bar and we could therefore hear everything until 1.30 in the... More

I went to the Wilson Arms as I had heard that it had changed hands since the last time I visited Whitby. The drink was good, the food was delicious and the staff were very welcoming. The prices were extremely reasonable compared with the high quality of food that was served. I can't wait to come back again and I... More
