Reviewed 19 June 2011

We had a very enjoyable stay at the wilson arms, although some of the reviews are not good, you only have to look in the visitors book to see how many people enjoyed their stay and will be returning. We were made very welcome, rooms clean and quiet, with a fantastic breakfast. I would not hesitate to stop again.

Room Tip: both the rooms we stayed in were good

Very restricted opening hours - even for residents! - so location not ideal if you like a drink, as nearest open pub was a short drive away and cab fare to Whitby itself was £12 each way although for 3 couples this was not so bad. Rooms although cleanish were small and very basic and in need of refreshing as the 60s decor has had its day in my opinion.
The Mr Nice & Mr Not so Nice hosts are a real issue, especially if you are met by Mr 'Not so Nice' as we were - very rude, and aggressive. The only reason we decided to stay was the obligatory £50 per room deposit we had paid and no where else to go for 3 couples at short notice. Mr Nice is lovely so if you encounter him feel relieved!

We have known the landlord and his partner for many years and I do not recognise the Wilson arms in some of these other reviews.

The welcome is always warm and the atmosphere convivial. Quiz night on a Tuesday is a great social occasion and the locals all pitch in to help visitors take part. there is always a lot of good natured "banter" but great fun.The "crack" is first class.

Sneaton is a pleasant village and access to the local area very good.

Spent a great few days here. The pub is warm clean and comfortable the food first class. Bedroom although not state of the art was spotless and The owners were welcoming and friendly. Cannot understand the negative comments made by some people Perhaps they were after a free holiday This has been known Did you see the TV programme about this.

Cannot believe that any human would treat another so rudely, so can only imagine that the person behind the bar in this pub, who claimed to be the landlord, has a serious problem. Having enjoyed a pleasant walking weekend in the area, a group of us( mixed ages and genders) called into this pub for drinks, only to receive abuse and insults. The barman appeared to be intoxicated and was very hostile. We were friendly and undemanding and could not understand his initial comments 'I don't want all you lot of rabble in here' - we thought he was joking, buthe continued so we left. It was a horrible experience that upset us all and spoilt our holiday. We would never go back and would advise others to avoid this establishment.
