We went as a family of 11, 6 adults and 5 kids and we were all very delighted with the Willerby.
We chose the Willerby from recommendations on Trip Advisor which proved to be very accurate.
Our rooms were all very large, free tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Rooms were very fresh, wonderfully prepared and spotlessly clean.
The staff were absolutely marvellous, very helpful and made sure we felt very welcome.
With 6 boisterous children running around the staff made sure they were looked after too.
The pool area was really very impressive, water was warm so enjoyable in this winter weather, very clean, big enough and deep enough for adults and the kids alike, there was a hot Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a kiddies pool too, we stayed in there 2 hours and had a great time, the staff were great too. There was also a great looking Gymnasium that we did not have time to try out, next time we will though.
In the evening we had full dinner for 11 people, a few of us had the smoke salmon starter followed by main of freshly cooked scallops with new potatoes in a divine sauce with rosemary, followed by cheese and biscuits and sticky toffee pudding, excellent gourmet food. Other favourites were, fish and chips, vegetarian, Indian curry with sweet potatoes, kids loved the chicken coujons. The staff were very attentive, informative and progressed the meal through in a timely fashion, they were very chatty and amicable at the bar afterwards over wine.
Breakfast the following morning was superb too, well worth the money, it’s a cereal/ toast, croissant plus a waitress ordered full breakfast with many choices as well as the full English one too, the tea and coffee was delicious too and the staff were marvellous.
We actually came here by chance after another Best Western at our intended destination was fully booked in York over Easter break but thankfully the booking service listened to our needs and recommended the Willerby near Hull not too far away.
The Willerby is impeccable in every way, I have no Idea how they keep the rates so low, we will definitely return soon with the kids.
Another plus is they allow dogs so our dog, a Golden Retriever had a great holiday too.
We loved the quiet country feeling as well as the dawn chorus of birdsong for our early morning Alarm.
I highly recommend the Willerby, you will be delighted to, it’s one of the best UL Hotels I have stayed in and dined too. give this a try you will not be disappointed. less
