I spent 3 nights here on a business trip. The location is fantastic, the downstairs public rooms are very pleasant. Food is excellent although expensive as are the bar prices. I was in one of the standard 'cheaper' rooms. It was small - luckily, though a double, I was the sole occupant. There was no view out of the window... More

My wife and I just spent two nights here. It may be a little tired but it is clean, rooms were large and comfortable with everything you could need. Staff were very pleasant, very helpful and very professional. The food was quite simply stunning. We could not fault anything we had over our stay and I was sad to be... More

Moaned that he had spent £16 getting there from Bournemouth and Ruth nowhere to be found. Anyway, checked in. The room was... More

My wife and I have been coming to the Haven for a weekend stay in September for the last fifteen years.We have aways enjoyed the stay and found the staff very friendly. We have over the years been allocated rooms by our group organiser and sampled most rooms on each side of the Hotel. Some of the rooms needed a... More

We took my mum to the Haven restaurant for her birthday. The staff could not have been more helpful, they gave us a wonderful table and made her feel very special in a very discreet way. The food was lovely with a kids menu too. Good wine list and great value for money.

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...

Our room was comfortable although pokey, clean and tidy and we had a side balcony over looking the spas roof but also... More
