The location of this hotel is gorgeous right on the beach with wonderful views. Rooms are spacious and beds comfy however carpets are starting to look a bit tired. Pool area nice and you can use the sister hotels spa which is a great bonus. The food in the restaurant really let's this hotel down- very small portions and very... More

Visited sandbanks on their winter warmer deal as otherwise quite expensive to stay. Very good deal 2 nights B&B with dinner the first night. We were in a ground floor room this time and for me the views were lacking. We have stayed before and been on higher floors with balcony rooms and the views are much better. A little... More

Lovely hotel - all staff were excellent and could not do enough for us. They were efficient and friendly. Food very good in the bar and the restaurant. We had a harbour view room and the views were excellent. Parking was no problem. All in all a very enjoyable break.

I had a family function for around 60 people. Anna Greenhill, the events manager, is a great ambassador for the Sandbanks Hotel and she took all the organising stress away from me. A friendly and professional young woman who kept me updated with frequent emails and phone calls regarding this important occasion. All the staff were friendly, helpful, polite and... More

Beautiful views of Sandbanks, good parking, but rooms are tired and need updating. Bathroom was very small and could do with a little modernising. Staff very friendly and ideal location in the summer Food is good but a little expensive, bar snack wise etc It's nice and quiet but needs a good update

Took a last minute "winter warmer" offer through the hotel with a "deluxe" room & very pleased we did.

We were very happy with service we received from check in staff & would like to mention restaurant... More
