Positive Reviews

A Rambler's Delight.

Ramblers have enjoyed the inn's proximity to great walks of North Yorkshire's moors, including the historic Monks Trod--an ancient stone path once followed by Monks to nearby Whitby Abbey.

Friendly Owners Add Warm Touch.

Many guests were charmed by the friendly and pleasant manner of the owners. The couple who run the Wilson Arms are sure to give you a warm welcome and a homey stay in an atmosphere many called cosy.

Great Pub Grub.

If you're hungry after a day out walking, look no further than your inn's pub. Guests gave repeated glowing reports of top-notch food offerings served throughout the day, and a nice selection of real ales.

Negative Reviews

Owners Show Lack of Experience.

Some guests pointed to disappointing customer service and booking mistakes resulting from inexperienced owners. Other guests found this apparent inexperience to be well compensated by the proprietors' warmth and charm.

Room Quality Falls Short.

Some complaints were issued about rooms under par for the 3-star rating, and therefore overpriced. A few mentioned dated room decor, with bed and shower cubicle sizes falling short. Some also mentioned malfunctioning tellies.

Whitby No Easy Walk.

While the town of Whitby is just 3 miles away, some guests found it almost inaccessible by foot, with walkers following an unexpectedly convoluted trail.
