We have just returned from a 2 night stay and were extremely pleased. We occupied a room on the first floor corner of the guest house which had fabulous views of the harbour piers and the open sea.

The room had 2 windows with great views. Plenty of wardrobe space, comfy armchairs, modern spacious bathroom and tea/coffee/kettle/biscuits. We spoke to the owner Kay on several occasions and...

Our second visit to the Sandbeck in 2014, we had a wonderful stay both times. The hotel and staff are welcoming, comfortable and warm, the rooms very well appointed, and the breakfasts sublime. Added to the stunning location of the hotel, there can be no better place to stay in Whitby. A real home from home, we shall not hesitate... More

The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, lovely little extras like a small fridge, chocolate biscuits and showergels etc in the bathroom. We were... More
