We visited hoping for a relaxing stay with fabulous views. Sadly we were disappointed. We arrived in very strong winds and on entering the apartment we were met with a howling whistle in the Master Bedroom. On investigation we found that this was coming from a broken air vent at the side of the window. We cannot understand how the...

Just had a short stay at the sands and we loved it. The staff were very helpful and pleasant, the apartment was lovely and seemed brand new with new carpets new appliances, very comfy beds and luxury bathrooms.

We stayed for two nights which got off to a late start due to a blow out on the A1. Steve the duty manager couldn't have been more helpful when we arrived at around 12.15pm . Our penthouse accommodation was fantastic with great views of the beach and great facilities. Can't recommend it enough!

Stayed in the seaview penthouse and the views were just perfect, highly recommend these apartments, they are immediately on the beach and not in the heart of Scarborough but in walking distance. Shops,cafes and bars around the complex so you don't have to go too far if you don't want to.

9th time visiting The Sands. 1st time we've experienced a problem. Stayed in Lockton Building - only 1 elevator whereas Kepwick Building has 2. Granted, elevator problems can be beyond the control of staff and management but I would like all visitors to know that, even when problems do occur, staff and management listen and respond in an excellent fashion....
