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.

Breakfast very good but would have preferred it to be served till ten rather than 9.30. Honesty bar not used but selection very good. Hotel was full but no noise at all during stay and very good nights sleep as a... More

My first time in Whitby and as soon as we arrived at the Sandbeck we were made to feel so very welcome, the hotel is lovely, with excellent customer service. I will defiantly would stay here again, the bed was very comfortable and a fantastic sea view from room 20... Thank you to all at the Sandbeck!

My wife and I stayed there for three nights from 7th May. We requested a room with a bath and we stayed in room 23 on the 3rd floor. The room was excellent, super clean and it had double aspect windows with views to the sea and the famous whale bones. There was plenty of room to relax and my... More

Ideally located, great sea views. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The food was very good and the place was very comfortable, clean and well decorated throughout. I will definitely visit again and would strongly recommend to others.

Everything spot on we stayed in room 12 with a lovely view of the harbour entrance and a nice place to sit with a cuppa and watch the world go by. Shame our... More

Lovely hotel...on the sea front close to the "Whalebones" Our one night stay was very enjoyable and comfortable even without a sea view from our room(we will try a room with a sea view next time) Staff very friendly and helpful plus their breakfast is delicious. A added bonus...this hotel also has a lift. We think the "honesty bar" is... More

Just returned from a nights stay,lovely clean hotel. Excellent sea view if staying on the front of hotel. Shower in our room 5* also the dining room was lovely and clean loved the seaside themed décor. It was also nice to have a lift instead of having to climb loads of stairs like most hotels.
