It was modern, well equipped, comfy, very clean, great sea view and would definitely visit again. Car park and hotel was secure. Only disappointment is that we didn't stay long enough. Staff were friendly and children loved the stay. I would definitely recommend as a break in Scarborough.

Had a wonderful stay here! The rooms are finished to a very high standard. The bathrooms are particularly nice. The views from the balcony are awesome. We got a really good deal too which was a bonus! O I do like to be beside the seaside!

This was our 2nd stay in the Sands apartment and I have to say they were even better than I remembered them. On arrival the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The apartment was cleaned to a very high standard and had everything we could possibly want including a welcome pack with essentials like milk, bread, tea etc. Very spacious...

This was our 5th visit to the Sands and it just gets better. This time we stayed in Lockton 406 – fab spacious apartment with fantastic views of the castle, beach and sea. We stayed for 5 nights but I wish I had booked for longer. The apartments are to a very high standard with everything you could possible need...

Could not fault the place. Excellent helpful staff who were pleasant friendly and it felt like you were talking to a friend. Brilliant location right on the beach which is the quieter end of the beach. We will be booking for next year shortly. This was our second visit and is a firm family favourite now.

Stayed Mon -Fri in one of the 2 bedroom, sea view apartments. Absolutely beautiful, very spacious and exceptionally clean. We paid extra for the sea view, which wasn't really a sea view. Both our master bedroom and twin bedroom looked on to a giant hill to the right side of the apartments. You had to go on to the balcony...

This is a great place to stay and I should know as I come from Scarborough originally and spent all my summers on North Bay beach, very clear and top quality fixtures and fittings. We were attending a family wedding on the beach so it was an ideal location. Staff are all polite from Sean the security man to house...

This year was our third year at The Sands and the standard is always excellent. The apartments are of a very high standard and well equipped. The location is perfect for the beach and the reception staff are always helpful. Only thing missing from this particular area of Scarborough is a playground for the children.
