We have just had a lovely weekend at this hotel, the reception staff were really helpful and very friendly a credit to the hotel. The staff at the outside bar were not very helpful at all which spoilt it really after the reception staff could't do enough for you. We had a lovely clean spacious room over looking the sea.

We have been staying in Sandbanks for 2 weeks and after having the best meal at the Pig on the Beach started to feel confident that you could eat anywhere in this area and it would be nice. The fact that no one else was eating at the "BBQ" outside bar is a big clue, they shouldn't even have BBQ... More

Although there were some mixed reviews at the beginning of 2014 my wife and I decided to stay 2 nights the last weekend in May. On approach from the car park it looks rather tired and could do with a face lift, once through the door however the impression was fresh, clean and spacious. The double room was larger than... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. Beautiful location but the hotel is large and sprawling and in need of a refurbishment. I was given instructions on how to find my room but no offer of assistance with luggage. It was quite a hike to my room, along the terrace, across the dance floor and down several corridors... More

Needed somewhere to stay around Poole on Sun 14/9/14 before checking in for a ferry at 07:00 Monday Really welcoming & helpful staff on arrival, GREAT room, comfy bed and brilliant service... Needed to leave 15 mins before breakfast started but a "feast" was delivered at 6:20 in my room as requested. Can't praise the staff highly enough.... Shame FJB... More

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception here in September. The wedding planning team were awesome from start to finish. Highly recommended. Everything was faultless about the day. The compass suite room was perfect, the food delicious, excellent wine and really friendly staff throughout the hotel. We were given a lovely seaview suite as part of the... More

I stayed here on business earlier this month and really loved it. The views are incredible and doesn't feel like you are in the uk. The staff were very professional and everything was very clean. The good in the evening was a little of a let down though still ok. The breakfast was excellent though and I would stay here... More

Very poor only 1 tea bag not even tagged cigarette ends on the floor, dirty tables and staff standing around not even interested in the customers. For a hotel that charges the prices it does it should use a decent crockery. This hotel lives on its location. I wouldn't use again. The coffee we had as well was not even... More
