Good location with a great view but the rooms are small, although they have everything you need, there was no bath because of the size of the room and the shower was only just big enough, the food was ok but the owners where down right rude and not very accommodating maybe it's time they retired!! Probably too many stairs for elderly guests

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are disappointed that your stay with us was not as it should have been.
We would like to apologise to you, it is not our intention to be rude or less than accommodating to any of our guests.
We do have one room with an en-suite bath rather than a shower for any guests that would prefer a bath. We agree that some people do think there are a lot of stairs to the top floor rooms, but we do try to accommodate guests, where possible, on a lower floor if we aware that our visitors would prefer this.
We hope that you will accept our apologies for your less than perfect stay with us.

We have just returned today from a 2 night at the Whancliffe, this is the best bed and breakfast hotel we have stayed in. It is spotlessly clean. Our room had a king size bed, spotless bedding, brillant white soft towels, and a wide selection of teas,etc, it even had a sewing kit and shoe shine. The breakfast choice was excellant, yoghurts,cereals,fruit juice were there for you to help yourself along with a wide choice of fresh fruit, we counted 9 different fruits during our stay, when you have eaten your way through these, you then have a full cooked breakfast or a choice from the menu of various other cooked options. Ann and Derek were always available to help make your stay an enjoyable one. There were even umbrellas available by the front door if needed. Will be returning for a further visit and recommend this hotel to any-one

This is the second time we have stayed at the Wharnclife Hotel, ( this last time being a spur of the moment thing) , and we were absolutely delighted to find it still under the same management. So much so, that when Derek asked us if we would like to see our room before officially booking in my husband and I both said no need too. This has got to be one of the cleanest and most welcoming small hotel / B&B's in the country. When you enter there is a small EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN well kept booking in area, and behind that a small EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN bar social room. On this same level there is a large lounge ah! yet again EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN. I know I keep saying exceptionally clean, but that was what first attracted us to the place after having looked at so many grotty places before we found this one 7 years ago. And yet here it was still under the same manageement and still with the fastidious cleaning routine that made us plump to stay there 7 years ago. So we knew without looking the bedrooms would be perfect. We stayed in a beautiful ensuite room over the top of the main lounge, it had the biggest bed I've ever seen in it, some sort of superking size, HUGE!!. also in the room was a dressing table and drawers, a wardrobe with a safe in it for your valuables, and best of all two beautiful new tub chairs and a table that you could just sit at and look out of your window at the surfers on the sea, you felt so close you could touch them. This is another advantage of the Wharncliffe, it is on a main road high up over looking north bay, so you get all the enjoyment of a sea view without the noise and smell of chips . It is just perfect. Your own coffee making facilities and tv etc, hairdrier.
The ensuite, well what can I say, so clean the sparkle of the taps hit you when you walk in, I'm not joking. Toilet , shower washhand basin, floor, you could have eaten off them all SO CLEAN. Bed linen crisp and fesh, and clean towels every day. I know I keep going on about it but I am obsessed with how clean a place is or if it's not up to scratch I'm not staying there, simple as. And I believe the majority of people out there are like me. You want somewhere EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN and Wharcliffe delivers every time.
Breakfasts, I don't know how Derek and Ann can make a profit there's so much choice, fresh fruits, yogurts, fruit juices, numerous cereals, jam toast, scrambled egg etc. and the biggest homecooked full english you'll get anywhere.They even make there own speciality sausages alsorts of delicious flavours. Honestly by the time you've had your breakfast you wouldn't need to eat again til supper. But don't take my word for it give the place a try yourself I promise you will not regret it.

Room Tip: All delightful
