My partner and me stayed here for a weekend in July 2014, it was a last minute decision to go so being the first week of the kids summer holidays we had to take what was left in the town at 3pm on the Friday (i can be impulsive at times), we landed at 8 pm, the girl on reception... More

Stayed one night here in July. Phone booking was well handled, received a confirmation email. Excellent reception on arrival, easy and cheap parking across the road using the "scratch card" provided for the princely sum of £1 by the hotel. Availability of parking is very important to me. Booked a room with sea view (Room 6), Lovely little area in... More

booked really late notice and got the two single rooms that the hotel (4 & 15) has for 1 night. Hotel is in great position on the cliff top facing sea near the whale bones. We both had sea views and both rooms were a decent size and very clean. Teles, coffee, biscuits are provided in the room and a... More

7 -13 July. I am a senior citizen. Since childhood I have been on holiday at least once a year. My family graduated from a caravan to guest houses, that had dragons ruling them. After my marriage my husband liked the comfort of 4 or 5* hotels. We stayed all over the British Isles, the continent, the mediteranian coast and... More

I stayed in the Sandbeck with my mum, sister and brother in law for three nights last week. My sister's double room had a huge bay window with a beautiful sea view. My mum and I had a single room each and both of these had sea views as well. All rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were lovely with... More

Just spent 20th to 22nd June at Sandbeck. Were really pleased with what room we had. Very clean, shower was a little not knowing how to get hot water through properly but we managed. Staff very friendly nothing to much trouble. Breakfast was lovely well presented. Will stay here again but next time will get a sea view room.

Excellent choice at breakfast time and food well presented. We love whitby and return often and have stayed in numerous guest houses and holiday cottages over the years but can honestly say... More

Stayed here for one night to celebrate my wife's birthday. A friendly welcome on arrival and a clean, well positioned room on the second floor facing the sea. Decent breakfast. One failing was that the free wifi signal didn't reach our room (14). Worked OK down in the lounge though.

We spent a lovely two-night stay at the Sandbeck (Friday and Saturday). We had room 16, a sea-view double on the second floor. It was simply furnished but pretty and really light with two windows as it's on the corner of the building, so felt welcoming and cosy despite the creaky metal bedstead. We had a lovely view out to... More

We stayed at the lovely Sandbeck Hotel during early April for three nights and had a fantastic time. Excellent service, my husband needed special dietary requirements and this was not a problem. The room and bathroom were spotless, brilliant sea view and great location. We mentioned that it was my birthday and on our return one evening found that we... More
