Our second visit here with friends to find some refurbishment and a 'boutique' description. Rooms remain lovely. Very clean and airy with superb bathrooms. Our room was a suite although no real difference to other rooms except that the bed was separated from the chairs by a pair of doors. Very good hospitality tray, and a small fridge in the... More

Me & the wife stayed here for 2 nights and stayed in an attic room overlooking the sea. We had a great time staying at the sandbeck, lovely room, fresh towels & bedding daily, spotless & tidy. Breakfast consisted of everything you could think of, staff & proprieters very friendly. Book here you won't be dissapionted.

We have just got home after staying for three nights. We had room 6 which isn't as big as some but has a lovely bay window on the front and two lovely chairs to sit in and watch the world go by. The room was spotless and the staff were all very obliging. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice.... More

We misunderstood the details on the website and were originally disappointed with the room we had booked. We particularly wanted the room with seating in the bay window overlooking the sea. After the owner trying other nearby hotels for us (to no avail) we were offered a choice of available vacant rooms and a move to the bay room as... More

This guest house is well situated on the sea front, rooms are nice and clean, main gripe was breakfast, they have obviously gone for the cheapest sausage available. Also, why have dining room in basement, which means no view of the outside and sea at all when having breakfast.

The Sandbeck guest house was a great place to stay for our weekend in Whitby and I would happily recommend to anyone looking for good quality accommodation, professional and friendly staff, excellent breakfast - all at a reasonable price. All the extra little touches made it much more like a hotel than a guest house - the comprehensive refreshments tray,... More

Just returned form a 3 night break in Whitby...first time visitor. Chose The Sandbeck having read previous good reviews, and so glad I did ! Had a lovely stay in this charming B&B. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, delicious food selection at breakfast. The location could not be more perfect for a nice wander into town & the harbour. I was... More

Great location. Lovely bedroom with double aspect of sea views. Nice & clean & comfy. Friendly helpful staff. A great choice for breccy which was very tasty. Near to The Pavilion, the whale bones, cook's statue and the harbour. Thumbs up. Can't wait to stay again.

Just stayed for one night in room 11 . This had a fine sea view and was nicely equipped and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent, with quality ingredients and a very wide choice of options I have scored it 4 / 5 and marked it down due to a couple of minor issues 1. Wifi signal was poor to non... More
