“Very good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We stayed here for one night in Oct. We thought it was very good.

The owner was helpful with parking which was an issue and she had soya milk as when booking ready for breakfast.

The room was big enough for 3 of us and the breakfast was good.

We would definitely consider staying here again

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

we stayed oct half term - small rooms but then most are in b&b's - yummy brekki, friendly staff, great lounge bar to sit in on a nightime - good if you have kids.
nice food served. middle of both main piers - would I come again - yes.
only bad things - we could hear the owners talking and laughing till 12midnight and also a dog woke us up at 6am - don't know if it was theirs or a neighboring hotel but still annoying. my matress was very thin- so may need to look at changing room 2 near window.
FRIENDLY, WARMA ND COSY - FEEL COMFORATBLE HERE
KIDS HAD POOL TABLE, TV AND DARTS - GOODIES AND CHOC BEHIND THE BAR WERE A HIT!

If you want Luxury, Space, Modern then this is not the place to go.
If you want Great Location, friendly staff, good breakfast then stay here.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the breakfast was served efficiently and was excellent, the bar has a nice relaxed atmosphere and children are welcome in it. Parking space for 9 cars. 10 minutes walk from the Pleasure Beach, 20 minutes walk from the Tower.
Yes the rooms are small and perhaps need a bit of updating but dont let it put you off.

Only thing that slightly spoilt it was the attitude of some other guests who obviously stay there alot and think they own the place.

For a short break would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are obviously the best but really how much time do you spend looking out your window.

Nice little hotel on the promenade with limited car parking. Rooms very small but clean and tidy. Good location for all amenities but 2 cars had damage caused by the drunks at night. Staff friendly and good breakfast

We have just come back from a weekend stay at the Sandford and really enjoyed ourselves. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. We booked a sea view room and was very happy with it.The dining room was clean and the food was amazing. Would definitely come back.
