The rooms were cramped and dated and the breakfast room needed a lick of paint too. My wife and I stayed in the top room with the comedy bathroom broom cupboard arrangement. My Mother and father were staying in the room below us. On the first night ( one of the hottest of the year) the storage heater was stuck...

Just returned from a one night stay at The Wilson Arms. Before we arrived I contacted the owner to ask whether it would be possible to check in early. I received a prompt reply and the owner was happy for us to arrive around noon. The pub was closed when we got there but there is a door bell at...

We were greeted by a lady in her dressing gown saying she wasn't well and they didn't open until 6pm. We had driven 6 hours and not even offered a cup of tea or asked if we wanted to leave our luggage. We had to walk round Whitby in the pouring rain. We also found the hotel a fire risk...

I don't normally moan about hotels but we didn't feel particularly welcome here. arriving on the hottest day of the year the rooms were very small and warm as you can imagine. Unbearably hot at bedtime, we discovered the storage heater was full on.(Storage heaters are full on at night, and can't be turned off ) At that time it...

Hi, we are sorry you felt this way, the storage heaters are on a thermostatic control so when at temperature it turns off, unfortunately you arrived when we were having a heat wave and it wasnt just your room that was very warm i think everyone suffers from it, we apologized and we changed rooms for you, not much more...

Lovely meals - steak, chops, prawns in coconut and chilli yum. Service great and mine hosts nice and friendly. Hard working family couple trying really hard. Rooms pleasant and homely. Beds were comfortable :)). Building could probably use some TLC but good value for what it was.

We had a day out in Scarborough and went to wilsons arms for lunch. The food was well presented and tasty, the owners were very welcoming and friendly. We have took a business card and will be trying it out to stay there over the summer
