              We were upgraded to balcony rooms without even asking for an upgrade. As it was my parents first visit they were especially pleased

            • Family with children
              8.8

              the family room. the beach. the patio bar and barbecue restaurant. friendly and helpful staff.

              the main dining room too canteen like, cold and lacking atmosphere. ate in the brasserie - table and cutlery were not very clean !!

            • Single

              The beach club bar, the view from my room/ sea view, friendly staff

              Small pokey room for the price

            • Single
              10.0

              Stunning location, I was blown away by the lovely location right on the beach with gorgeous views. The staff were great and the food first class. Its a shame I was there on business but will go back with my husband.

              Nothing really - the staff were great if anything a bit too over attentive at meal times.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Having sandy beach so close was really nice.

            • Single
              7.0

              It has a beautiful sun terrace overlooking the sandy beach, where one can order snacks and drinks.

              The breakfast was truly dreadful and unfitting for a 4 star hotel. In fact it was worse than many guest houses I have stayed in - poor choice of cereals, no fresh fruit, no yoghourt, cold plates, congealed fried eggs - and this only 20 minutes after the restaurant opened. The room was stiflingly hot and the windows could only be opened a little way. No airconditioning or even an electric fan. The fire alarm went off at midnight. The reception staff the next day were not apologetic about this.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              You couldn't get a spa treatment , it was miles from anywhere and pool was small

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Location with views over Poole Harbour. Outstanding location with good facilities. Good Internet, parking, breakfast personally cooked for us.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The location of the hotel is great, beach oneside, harbour the other. Our room overlooked the lovely sandy beach, with views to Old Harry's Rocks at Studland. The outside terrace is a nice place to sit and have lunch, very busy and buzzy the day we were there. Lots of staff around to help. Our room was fine, clean if a little dated. Flat screen television though. Nice white fluffy towels in the bathroom. Breakfast was good, plenty of it and again plenty of staff on hand.

              Lift broke down as soon as we arrived and wasn't mended by the time we left, two days later. As we were on the top floor (3rd) was a bit of a pain. One of the toilets wasn't working in the ladies powder room. Bit noisy on the Saturday night due to a function in the hotel.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              I thought the hotel was excellent, but the location was breath taking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay so much so we extended our two night stay by an additional night, and because our original double room was already booked out for the third night, they moved us up into an executive room for the same price. Which was luxurious, with a balcony over the beach. We've decided to go back again for a short break next year as well, and will probably pay the extra money for the executive room.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              Room was very spacious and comfortable. Stayed for two nights on a short break with family members. Hotel is well situated right on the beach.

              Plenty of choice at breakfast but food not very hot. Evening meal menu rather limited.

              Beachside location

              There are no 7 day stay prices available.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              The staff at the Sandbanks hotel,and also everyone we came across in the local area were friendly and helpful, we could not have been made more welcome. The balcony in our room offered possibly the best view we have had anywhere. All in all we enjoyed a wonderful minibreak and would love to come back, and explore even more of the lovely area.

              The location of the hotel is lovely and has good views of Poole Harbour.
