Perfect location once you have got your luggage to your room. There is nothing the staff can do about narrow street that restrict the access or the sea gulls squawking but everything they could influence was delightful, comfortable room excellent service great meals.

We stayed in the Old Dispensary in January 2014 for a birthday celebration. The little cottage was beautiful and very comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was lovely with large portions and lots of choice. We took our dogs with us which was nice. It is often hard to find a nice bed and breakfast that will allow dogs and this... More

I have stayed at Sanders yard every September for the last 4 yrs now. I haven't written a review before because I want to keep it a secret as it's that good! The rooms are lovely and very clean and the breakfasts are the best I've ever had!! Think I've peaked too early with praise though as the cakes are... More

Cute collection of rooms adjoining a cafe/restaurant tucked behind the central Church Street cobbles of Whitby. Stayed in room 2 which was cosy with a very high standard of decor, but would've had the larger room 1 if we'd have booked earlier. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, no shower but a lovely sturdy bath and gorgeous toiletries provided. The plentiful... More

I am surprised at the rating of this B&B to date. Yes, a central location. However, the walls are so thin I can hear every word and movement of the guests next door. Rooms are small and the bed is very uncomfortable. There is no shower but I guess the roll top bath is to make up for it /... More

If you go here you have to try their cake! It's so naughty and delicious! Lovely staff and owners and so welcoming to children too. High chairs available and toys too. It's cosy, quirky and a gem of Whitby!

Went for a quick night away and found a quirky, well appointed b and b by the clock tower in whitby. Lovely staff, great location with clean rooms and good breakfast. Would definitely return again and recommend to friends

Had a nice little one-night break at Sanders Yard, which is very central in the old part of Whitby. We stayed in Room 3, which was nicely decorated - cute nic-nacs dotted about gave it a bit of personality. It had enough room for the 2 of us but could have done with a chair each (just the one). We... More

Just spent the Easter weekend here, what a great place. Room was lovely cast iron bed & claw foot bath, little touches like a chocolate on the bed. Breakfast was perfect, we will definitely return. The reviewer from Barnsley earlier in the month is obviously crazy how can you keep coming to a place then the one time you don't... More

We have just returned from a stay at Sanders Yard for Easter and will definitely be returning again. The location is perfect, the room was gorgeous and the breakfast plentiful, fresh and very well cooked. What a lovely little gem of a place - I can't recommend this place highly enough.
