“Nice apartment in a great location”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had a great stay at Flat 9 Sandhills. The flat is located very close to Sandbanks beach (literally a couple of hundred metres to get on to the beach). It is reasonably spacious and nicely furnished, and we found it very easy staying there with a toddler as it was already pretty child safe (no ornaments at low levels etc).

The flat is comfortable and has a good range of equipment (although it could do with some wooden spoons). It has a dishwasher and a washer-dryer (essential when travelling with a mucky toddler), and a lot of cleaning stuff is provided.

Parking was fine although there didn't seem to be an allocated space - just a number of spaces that seem to operate on a first come first served basis. We were there out of season so didn't have a problem but there seemed to be less spaces than flats so it might be more difficult in the summer holidays.

The owner was very helpful too, and the linen we hired from the cleaning company made the trip that much easier as we didn't have to take towels and bedding with us.

All in all a great stay in a great location.

“More than exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The apartment is absolutely lovely and it makes a refreshing change that the photos are a true reflection of what the property currently looks like! In fact the property is even nicer than the photos show. All rooms are of a really good size and the apartment has a homely but modern feel to it. The location of the property is ideal as it is only a short walk to the ferry or to the bus stops that get you into Poole or Dorset. The Sandbanks beach is also a stones throw away. We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay, and I would certainly stay there again.

“Lovely apartment. Great Location.”

Stayed for a long weekend at the end of April 2011 with my boyfriend and our young child, and we would definitely return.
Lovely spacious apartment, and very nicely furnished. Great location, near to beach and restaurants etc.
Only slight downside is that its on the top floor of the apartment block with no lift, which meant having to lug our bags up three flights of stairs. However, this wasn't really a problem for us overall.
Would definitely love to have another stay at the apartment and have already recommended it to friends!!
