“Over night stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

What a gem, this guest house is perfect well maintained right down to cotton buds in the bathroom I don't think Kay & David have forgotten anything. It is spotlessly clean not a speck of dust in any crevices. The staff are very friendly & can't do enough for you, the breakfast was lovely too. We would defiantly stay again here next time we are in Whitby. Cannot fault this place

Room Tip: We stayed in room 24 which was a king size room which had beautiful furniture & good sea view

Just returned today from a 2 night stay at the sandbeck and cant wait to go back.
Room 16 was excellent, breakfast excellent, staff excellent polite and very friendly.
The honesty bar was a very relaxing and friendly place to sit and have chat with fellow guests..

Booked room 3 late on and couldn't be happier. Perfect room, fantastic views, free late check in and managed free parking!

Breakfast was top stuff and the location of hotel ideal. Walked into whitby on the evening for tea/drinks and again the following day.

Will definitely return and havr recommended to family and friends.

Staff are so polite and helpful! !

We had 3 nights here over Easter, it was everything we remembered. This was our third time here, we had room 21, executive suite. Everything was absolutely spot on, spotlessly clean and lots of attention to detail. We particularly like the additional sitting room in room 21, not to mention the spectacular views!! Kaye and all the staff are extremely attentive, couldn't have asked for more. As usual the variety and quality of the breakfasts was top notch!! Would highly recommend this lovely place to anyone considering The Sandbeck.

Room Tip: Well worth choosing a sea view!

My husband and I stayed here last week. Clean room, lovely ensuite and great room with bay window and sea views... Room 7 I think. Lovely breakfast and good choice of menu which you select on a sheet at reception the night before. There were two reasons I have given it 4 rather than 5 stars: the mattress was firm which is good but would benefit from a mattress topper as I found it too hard so didn't sleep amazingly and I also thought it was a tad pricey (£90), although I imagine we paid a premium for the sea view. It isn't Boutique in decor, although very clean and bathroom is 'boutique' I would say. Lounge and hall more Victoriana pictures. Whilst that doesn't bother me it might bother someone seeking true modern boutique chic. The honesty bar was a great idea and would be great if relaxing with a group of walkers etc. Again decor a tad dated in the lounge but my
husband liked it a lot as it had a bar and pub type seating and good beers. One plea, some
Yorkshire crisps to buy in the bar would have gone down well. Would stay again happily (with matress topper!)



would be nice. Highly recommend overall.

Room Tip: Ask for bay window room.

We are regular visitors to Whitby and chose The Sandbeck on this particular occasion. We were not disappointed. The Sandbeck is in a perfect location, was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and very well run. The breakfast area was a pleasure to spend time in and the attention to detail is extended to the wide variety of choice at breakfast. The room (room 21) was very clean, comfortable and a very nice place to rest at night after a day out by the sea. We will not hesitate to return back to The Sandbeck.
