Sanders Yard
Ranked #51 of 152 Whitby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 15, 2011

This is the second year we have stayed at Sanders Yard and once again we thoroughly enyoyed our stay.
It is not a typical B&B it is more of a restaurant / cafe with rooms but doesn't suffer from that in any respect.
We stayed in room 1 which was spacious, very clean with a confortable sleigh bed and big en suite bathroom with a double ended bath tub.
The best feature of Sanders Yard is the location as it's on Church Street so right in the centre of "old whitby".
No car park but near to pay and display so my advice is to contact Tourism office and get a discounted prepaid ticket if your staying more than one night.

I found this hotel online after searching for a one night stay for my partner's birthday. We have just returned this weekend. The booking process was simple and the staff member friendly. He offered us a room called the "Jade Attic". When we arrived in Whitby we found a car park a two minute walk away. £6 for 24 hour parking. Sanders Yard is right on the main Church Street - a nice cobbled street. You go up a little yard and you arrive at Sanders Yard. You enter via a cute little tea room which was very busy full of locals. We were immediately asked if we would like a drink and said they would bring up to the room for us. We were shown to the room by a lovely lady. The Jade Attic is right in the - well attic! It was a gorgeous narrow room with old beams - apparently the building is a couple of hundred years old. We had a separate bathroom next door to our room and that was just out of this world!! very modern with large free standing bath and large sink. Very spacious. Guests get their own key and different door to come and go as you please. Very good night's sleep, nice cosy bed which was lit up with fairy lights for us. Breakfast the next day was served between 9am-10am with a selection of juices, cereals etc followed by a full english which set us up for the day. You could however choose something else from the menu like fresh salmon and eggs. I love Whitby and when I next visit Whitby I will definately stay here. GEM OF A PLACE!!!

Room Tip: Request the Jade Attic

What can we say but wow what a gem. We stumbled upon Sanders Yard after a long drive exploring the coast, we decide late afternoon to see if we could get a b&b. Did we get one ooh yes, staff warm and friendly, room absolutely fantastic and they made a bed up for Tom, nothing too much trouble at all. The breakfast was well put it this way it set you up for the day. I would recommend that you do book though as this is a true gem definitely will be returning. Value for money oh yes!

My Husband and I came to stay at Sanders Yard for our Wedding Anniversary, on arrival it looked like a cafe!!! We were then taken to our room which was tiny, and backing onto the other B&B which had their guests in the courtyard which was what we were overlooking!!! (How romantic)..... then checked out the bathroom NO SHOWER, so nipped downstairs and asked if there were any rooms with showers I could move to, the answer was no, so then I asked if there was any chance I could have a shower head to put on the taps to wash my hair, NO......Oh I can give u a JUG!!!! It had to do because there was no alternative. When we arrived they said u get complimentary drink on your arrival, it was roasting hot day and asked what our choices of drink were Tea or Coffee er think we will leave it then, thanks but no thanks, won't be staying again!!!!

Room Tip: Make sure it has a shower and nice view

when we arrived at 6 30 pm there was no one to greet us there was however a phone number to ring which we did to be guided by phone to our room where the key was in the lock.
the room was a lot smaller than the photos make it look the bed was very comfortable although the pillows were flat after about 5 mins laying on the.
the breakfast was not very good and seemed to be very inconsistent between the guests we were not offered a choice of bread types i.e white or brown and the portion size was made to look big by beans or mushrooms to go with the 1 slice of bacon and 1 sausage overall not great.
the only time we saw anyone from the hotel was at breakfast...

Room Tip: the rooms are not off the main courtyard
