Having been 'bounced' to the Haven Hotel from its sister hotel elsewhere in Sandbanks due to 'booking' issues I was pleasantly suprised after I eventually got into the car park - be aware that if you mss the turning you are trapped onto a long one-way loop to get back round again - not good if you are in a...

sandbanks was great and the haven was a perfect base to use for us. A well maintain hotel although i must say the rooms did seem a little tired and the parking was a pain at busy times. Our room was comfortable although pokey, clean and tidy and we had a side balcony over looking the spas roof but also... More

We enjoyed a fabulous 6-night stay at the 4* Haven, the 5th time we have returned to this wonderful oasis of calm! As many reviews state, the hotel couldn't be better positioned, perched on the beach/waters edge, right on the tip of the Sandbanks peninsula, the hotel is surrounded by multi-million pound dream houses. Our stay couldn't have been better.... More

I wonder if there is a real variety in the rooms available because we had read about how shabby some of the rooms were - but we absolutely loved this hotel. Yes, it was early September, still beautiful weather but without all the school kids in the pool. Yes, we had paid extra for a sea view but we were... More

Had a short break at the Haven, location is great, hotel is fair, but the bedroom was very poor. Multiple stains on the carpet, water stains under the windowsill, bedroom ceiling reminded me of a 1970's office with acoustic tilling and a loose light fitting. Faulty shower head, bed springs that were both vocal and sharp..Very dated and overpriced, I... More

I am staying at the Haven as a birthday treat with my husband and toddler. Although the location is great, our room is terrible. I cannot open the windows as they are not safety locked for children and there is a three floor fall and the room is therefore boiling hot and a safety risk. I asked for a fan... More

Not a 4 star hotel. The bedroom was very basic with a small double bed. No toiletries replaced on the 2nd day. The bathroom towels we're very hard and stiff. Room felt old and shabby. The location is good, with a lovely terrace. Drinks and food very expensive.

Had a lovely afternoon tea here with tea, scones and cakes with a group of friends. The service was excellent and the view over the sea was amazing. A really special afternoon out for my birthday! Thoroughly recommended!

The Haven in Sandbanks was a fantastic short break away for my self and my partner the spa was clean and relaxing. The only downside was i felt our room was quite small. Dinner was good although we had to eat in the bar because the restaurant was full all in all not a bad weekend.
