“Brilliant Even In a Crises!!!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

This was our first Guest House/Hotel we stayed in, on our tour of Yorkshire. So the remaining places we stayed at had a lot to live up to, against the high standard of Sandpiper House.

Ideal location for walking to all the sights.

Suggest you book restaurants recommended by Pete and Manetta well in advance if you don't wish to be disappointed.

Although the room was small, it was tastefully decorated, you had everything you needed and extras. Very nice soap, shampoo, shower gel and body/hand lotion, biscuits, plenty of hot drink sachets and sweets.

There was a gap in the window which did cause a draft if you were sitting on the sofa watching TV, but with the curtains closed it was fine.

There is free Wi Fi.

Pete and Manetta went out of their way to ensure we had a nice stay even though the whole of Whitby had a power cut and that we had a cooked breakfast, with real tea (tea leaves in a pot), plus fresh coffee. So well done to them.

Certainly plan to go back next year.

We were made so welcome at the Sandpiper House. The hotel and room were clean, well maintained and a pleasure to stay in. The Suite has a wonderful new bath/walk in shower which was immaculately clean. The breakfast was just delightful and Pete and his wife could not have been more helpful. Thank you for a really enjoyable and relaxing stay. We will definitely come back for more!

Room Tip: Book in and see, you will not be disappointed. Even a place to park the car if you booked The Suite...

Pete and Manetta cannot do enough to make their guest feel welcome and comfortable in their wonderful Bed and Breakfast in Whitby. We have visited Sandpiper House four times now and have always had a very enjoyable stay. We have stayed in a few different rooms and all have been to a very high standard. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you Denise and Allen.

We spent 3 nights with these guys, in fact we were 50 metres away in their Elizabeth house apartments. The apartment was much larger than expected, and better equipped. We paid £59 per night, that was for bed and breakfast for 2, and the breakfast is great and sets you up for the day. But the stars of this place are peter and Manetta who run it - I could go on and on about their kindness and attention to detail but I'll just say this: If you are considering opening a bed and breakfast of guest house yourself, stay with these guys and see how it's done, then copy it - you'll be a certain success!

I called this guest house after seeing it advertised on bookdirectrooms.com just for some general information, only to be told the price for the stay was not as advertised but £110 more.
When i queried this with the lady ,about the price that was advertised on the website (and talked her into how to get on the site to check), she said she would check with her husband to see if we could have it at the advertised price and she would get back to us that night..
Unfortunately we are still waiting, and when I went back on the website a while later the room had been taken of. Not the best customer service, a simple phone call would have been nice!!!! not the best way to attract new customers.
