Breakfast, had requested soya milk when booked to put on cereal and in coffee when I asked for it they didn't have any. So what's the point of asking customers re food intolerances/allergies. Breakfast was not brilliant, beans luke warm,egg rubbery,tomato was supposed to... More

We stayed here for one night on the 26th January 2015. We managed to park on the street opposite and were given a scratchcard permit which actually lasts for 4 days, from the hotel. Our room was a small double which was fine for the 2 of us. The room was cosy with a flat screen tv with sky, tea... More

Not a hotel, a guest house. There seemed to be a communal lounge but we weren't told about it and it looked like people had been having a private party. Very unprofessional staff: waitress at breakfast shouted at kitchen staff constantly, in full view and hearing of guests. No class. Only time we saw proprietor is when we were leaving... More

Just got back after 3 nights in Whitby at The Wheeldale nightmare to get there on Saturday with heavy snow over the Whitby moors. A blessed relief to get inside this cosy warm and welcoming oasis on the West cliff. It was minus degrees every night, but a pleasure to get back to the warmth of the hotel. Excellent breakfast...

Stayed in Whitby several times now, stayed at the Wheeldale most recently. The room (no 8) had everything you needed for a good stay. Extra Tea and coffee is available downstairs. Overall clean and well kept. Bathroom was a good size, huge shower and thankfully was a power shower fitted (can't stand low pressure electric ones). Breakfast is served between... More

We wanted something a little different for our wedding anniversary so booked a room with a separate attic TV lounge. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable with a bathroom off the TV lounge and a separate shower room and toilet off the bedroom. The breakfast was extremely hearty and all the staff very friendly. There was a lovely comfortable... More

Just stayed for three nights and delighted with the experience. The room was lean and comfortable and well equipped. The Sky tv and wifi was terrific. Would highly recommend it was great value for money and when I return to Whitby will definitely book again.
