Disappointing family stay

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Oct 2023
Firstly, when arrived it was a nice-looking old building. It did seem to be a good choice from booking.com web site.
Then at check-in we experienced the first indications that it would not be the perfect first family holiday planned in 4 years. During the check-in process it was found that the allocated room for my parents in their 80's was actually a 2nd floor room up a spiral staircase and when we said this was not practical as my Mum could not go up the stairs one of the owners said we should have mentioned this during booking. Maybe true we should have asked for a ground floor room, but nowhere online did it say the rooms had spiral staircases, (I did read others found this an issue). Anyway, we were allocated rooms and then just relaxed with visiting family before dinner.
Before dinner we sat in the bar area, which was traditional and old, but a bit cramped for larger groups. Anyway, we had a drink and ordered our meals ok. Then to the dining room we were told we could sit down at our table which was ready except for the wine ordered which we pointed out to the waiter. After some time, the starters arrived which were all very nice, however the wine still after a few reminders still hand not arrived. Maybe the young staff forgot or were a bit too busy to remember to bring and serve the wine ordered. Anyway, eventually the wine did arrive after another request and before the main course. For the main course 4 from 5 meals were very nice, however my father's dish was not nice at all, and he could not manage to eat it. The waiter was informed, and we said ok, nothing else needed as by then we had all finished the main course. It was when the owner came later that the inquiry into the disappointing main course developed more to an argument than dialogue to which we decided it was best to stop. So, at this point we finished the meal and decided not to order coffee or desserts and just retire for the evening. But then when walking from main building to the coach house bedroom the lady owner stopped us in the carpark to basically complain at us. At this point my parents in their 80's were almost crying and scared for this provocative behavior and wanted to leave immediately which due to drinking during dinner we could not do. We decided not to stay the 2 days booked and the following morning, we packed and checked out as early as possible, which was 8am, (we were prepared earlier but the main building was locked, and the reception did not start so early) then left without the paid breakfast as we did not want another argument. Always 2 sides to any argument, however, to behave this way to elderly people who are paying customers is not acceptable in any shape or form.
Additionally, I did find the rooms a little dated and needing an update as the photos show some parts broken and the single bed quite uncomfortable.
In my years for travelling the world both for business and pleasure I have never had such bad customer service as this, not even close. Personally, I and my family would never visit or recommend this to anyone else.

Firstly, beautiful location and building, owner complained about everyone booking on line as he has to pay 20% fee, we hadn’t even checked in yet. Our room was really lovely with a four poster bed but when we came to sleep the springs dug in making a poor nights sleep. The 2nd night we slept on top of the duvet so it acted as a mattress topper and we had a lovely nights sleep. We went to check out and was going to mention it but reception were busy on the phone with booking.com and after waiting a while someone else came to check us out but when talking we got scowls from the lady still on the phone.
Best thing about the hotel was the waitress Meghan, helpful, upbeat and taking care of everyone at breakfast with a lovely smile.

Room tip: Great parking and lovely lounge areas. Parking in Filey a little difficult but you can walk. Nice pubs in area

What a treat!! Such a lovely house, and lodgings with an excellent, reasonably priced restaurant serving beautifully cooked food. Would highly recommend an evening here.

Great option for cyclists looking for an overnight option as well.

Room tip: Book ahead to avoid disappointment. Order lobster and crab dishes.

Pretty poor I'm afraid, not for us.
I seem to be in the minority but this didn't live up to expectations. It's often referred to as a hidden gem, well I can agree it is hidden, although that can often be an asset. It could also be a gem but a lot of things would need attention for that to be the case.
We had 2 nights dinner, bed & breakfast in the coach house. The room was OK but with strange furniture. Dinner was quite good, we enjoyed the lobster with pasta. Breakfast was very mediocre. Waiting staff were very young and inexperienced.
Both the dining room and bar could be improved by ditching some of the huge, dated furniture.
We would not return.

3 night stay….
Welcoming atmosphere from the proprietors Peter and Stacie.
Very comfortable Queen size bed and lots of room. (Room9) Very clean and tidy.
Fantastic breakfast and would recommend that you book for an evening meal in the restaurant. Attentive friendly staff and a very relaxing lounge to have a drink in before and after your meal. Will definitely return again later this year and will be recommending Wrangham House Hotel to our friends and family.
Thank you.

Room tip: Be sure to book an evening meal. You won’t be disappointed.

Lovely family run hotel in a fantastic location in the heart of Hunmanby close to Filey. Spacious, clean and very comfortable room ( we were upgraded to a suite) with modern walk in rain-fall shower. Had two nights dinner in the hotel and the food was excellent. Breakfast was also freshly cooked and plentiful. Highly recommended
