ONE of Scarborough’s newest tourist accommodation complexes has been named a finalist in the National Hotel Awards.

The Sands Seafront Apartments in Scarborough’s North Bay is one of two runners up in the Best Family Friendly Hotel category at the Hotel Reservation Service’s Hotel Excellence Awards held in central London.

With competition from across the country, the five star gold-star rated Sands complex won a place in the final.

The judges of the awards said they were impressed by the “home from home experience provided for families, from the very young to the young at heart”.

Sands director Robert Dean said: “We would have loved to have won but we are equally are thrilled to get so far.

“We have worked so hard to anticipate everything a family needs for a great holiday, from baby equipment, games consoles and discount vouchers for local attractions to a free DVD library and links with local mobility hire shops and this achievement reflects that.

“We also plan to do even more to make holidays at The Sands even better for guests, whatever their age, so who know what awards we could win in the future.”
