We spent a lovely week in one of the Poole lodges at Sandford Holiday Park. Check in took a few minutes to get to the front of the queue but staff were friendly and helpful. The lodge itself was lovely - like a small luxury flat. It was very clean and well equipped. Just one thing - the doors are on the low and narrow side but as hubby is 6'4, it was just one of those things. The park was very clean, the outdoor play areas looked a little tired but hopefully that's just down to it being end of season. The outdoor pool was closed but the indoor pool was very nice - could do with some more family changing cubicles and can imagine in peak time it would be very crowded. Just one grumble and that was the take away eateries - it took over 45 minutes to get fish and chips on a Friday night. Wouldn't have minded waiting that long had we not been 3rd in the queue with the first person having already been served and waiting on food. The pizza place was also a bit of a mare - completely bodged up our order and being told we'd wait 20 minutes to have to wait 45 minutes and it then be wrong was a tad annoying. The main restaurant was very nice, good food and attentive service. Overall we had a great time and would return.
