Stayed at this hotel using an Amazon voucher for a discounted stay. The management obviously keep their very worst rooms for people using the discount vouchers as this was undoubtedly one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The room had a chipped bath, chipped bidet, chipped sink, a flush that only worked intermittently and even the chrome... More

This hotel is situated on a narrow strip of land near Poole. We had a room with a balcony looking out across the sea into Bournemouth. Good sized room with a sofa,2 chairs and a coffee table. Balcony overlooks the beach. There were a lot of people staying here over Christmas our room was very quiet. We would have liked... More

My partner and I recently stayed for 2 nights at the Sandbank hotel. We had a very enjoyable stay, we stayed in a deluxe room with balcony facing the beach. Such a great location and view. The room had a separate suite area which was fairly big and very clean. The free wifi was also faultless. The staff are very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights including one night for company Xmas party. Great bar food on first night and decent beers( I recommend the pizza in the bar). The place was immaculate. Parking decent and room was spacious and had decent view. I had room 110 overlooking the sea but I think most of them have sea views. Cleaning staff... More

Took a Secret Escapes 2-night deal which included an upgrade of room which was large with a very comfortable bed overlooking the sea. The room (322) and bathroom appeared very clean. Breakfast was very good and we ate dinner there on one night. The evening meals were nicely cooked if a little expensive. I didn't need to be asked if... More

The Sandbanks Hotel is in a beautiful location right on the beach with the most amazing views and a lot of work has been carried out on the ground floor. There is plenty of parking and the Receptionist was very helpful. As we made our way to the room for our event, staff were waiting with drinks and were very... More

We only had one night here and it was so disappointing. The position of this hotel is fabulous, with sea views on both sides. However, it's tired and in places a bit grubby. The reception area and staff were lovely and helpful, but that's where the pleasure ended. The trek to our room was not the best, with dated and... More

I recently stayed on a three night break here with my partner and child. We found the hotel to be good, breakfast was fine and our room was great, a large family room and well equiped with a lovely view of the harbour. We noticed strange looking owls on the roof just outside our window but realised they were security... More

The hotel is situated in a great location with wonderful sea views. We paid for a deal with dinner and view of the sea. My disappointment was why have your best rooms over looking a children's play area? Dinner was pleasant. We booked our family in for the Sunday roast and this was amazing one of the best we have...
