Reviewed 14 August 2014

If you want to know how great this guesthouse is then you only have to see how many reviewers return again and again. I am one of those reviewers and have visited the Sandbeck for the past four years. If you want the best customer service, then this is the place to stay. Kay, Laura, Andrea and the rest of the staff are always on hand to do everything they can to make sure that your stay is comfortable and they have excellent knowledge of places to visit, things to do and places to eat. You will not find a better breakfast in Whitby with their Breakfasts of the World choices (see website) with my particular choices being the Full English, Spanish (pepper, tomato,onion omelette) and French (croissants/jams/fruit) with all locally produced food. What really impresses me about Kay and David is their continual drive to improve. We always stay in Room 9 and were surprised and pleased to see the room upgraded with new shower, washing and toilet facilities even though there was not too much wrong with the room as it was previously -excellent. There is not too much more to add to my previous reviews only to say a big thank you once again to all at the Sandbeck who make our yearly visit to Whitby so very special. Thanks - Andy and Katy!

Just returned from a stay at this hotel, thank you to Kay and all the staff who made us feel very welcome, room 14 was perfect ( as always) didn't want to leave. Can't wait for next visit. Would highly recommend this hotel probably one of the best we've stayed at.

We strayed in this hotel last year when we got married in Whitby. The staff and owner, Kay, couldn't do enough to make it a wonderful experience. We returned this week for our first anniversary and yet again we have been treated like a king and queen. Everyone is so nice, clean,comfortable. We have a bay windowed room which has everything we need.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are best for a sea view and are very spacious. Lovely furniture and a fridge whic...

Stayed at the Sandbeck for the last 3 days of our hold in north Yorkshire. Lovely location,great views from room 20,lovely and clean,bathroom looked quite recently refurbished with walk in shower. Advertised as a family room, but just large enough to fit in the smaller camp bed rather than a true single....was not an issue for my 12 year old but worth a mention. Lovely breakfasts and great idea having the extra choices options which I tried for 2 of the 3. Overall a very nice guest house.

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 was brilliant, checked us in, sorted us with a parking voucher, explained the set up all in 15 mins.
We had room 16, a corner room on the 2nd floor, brilliant views over the sea, the bed was comfy, bathroom looks brand new, mini fridge and flatscreen tv, we can`t find fault with the room.
Breakfast is the best, homemade fresh orange & apple juices, all the usual suspects, which are locally sourced and you can`t half tell, tasted great, there are loads of choices you don`t normally see at a b&b as well, you will struggle to get a better breakfast in the town.
The landlady was always around to help if needed, the staff are great, we have stayed in a good few b&b`s on the west cliff, we shall be returning later this year, that`s a promise, we are both very impressed, many thanks

Martin & Sharon

Room Tip: the sea view rooms are worth it, we had 16, will ask for it again next time ;-)
