Absolutely loved our stay at the sands , we stayed in kepwick 112 , you could see all up the main road and had sea view. The apartment had everything we needed and more . The beds were comfy , everywhere was clean . We only stayed for 2 nights and we didn’t want to come home . Once you’ve stayed here nowhere seems as nice

Myself, my partner and our 1 year old originally booked an apartment in the centre of Scarborough which was just too noisy for us. So while there we booked The Sands for our last two nights. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment without sea view. We were amazed by the size of the room. Very spacious. Generous open plan living room and kitchen. The kitchen had everything you could need. Even complimentary milk already in the fridge. They also had a pop up christmas tree in the room which was a lovely touch. Twin bedroom was big with wardrobe. Main bedroom was very spacious with en suite and TV. I do think the room could have taken a bigger bed than a double, and my only gripe was the mattress was too hard for me, but that's down to personal preference I guess. Lovely main bathroom. Staff were all lovely and friendly. 1 car parking space in a secure car park. The shop underneath was also a great asset to the apartments for any extra items you may need. We didn't go in the pub/restaurant so can't comment on that. Overall a fantastic stay and we will be back.

A fantastic location for a short winter break. The Sands is situated next to the North Bay beach, very close to the sand and sea, and there are cafe bars and a shop on the ground floor of the building. It's a 15-20 minute walk to the amenities in the centre of Scarborough but buses and taxis are available if you don't want to walk. The Sands is also a great base for coastal walks, virtually from the door.

The best, cleanest, the most wonderful place we have ever stayed in. It feels like home. A wonderful home. You’ve got everything there you might need when away from your own house. The balcony is so impressive with its beautiful big table that even in a poor weather you still want to be there listening to the waves and watching the sun begging or ending another beautiful day. The view of the sea, cliffs and Scarborough castle is breath taking. We love its space, design, colours, lights and the dining room where we found the best place to have a fantastic time with our children playing some games. Every time we are there, we wish it was our home. We love the Penthouse 504 and feel very lucky to be able to enjoy it 💝

This was our sixth stay at The Sands on the North Bay at Scarborough. Customer service is excellent, friendly and professional. The apartments have been spotless every single time, and the facilities are spot on. There’s plenty to do around the town even during low season, for all ages. Highly recommend The Sands for a wonderful bolt hole on the North Yorkshire coast.
