Great family hotel, comfortable for adults as well

Posted 10-Aug-2014
Pros: Very good for children and comfortable for adults, good facilities and position and views
Location: Jurassic Heritage coast, Bournemouth, Corfe Castle. Great fish restaurant in Shell Bay just across the Chain Ferry - great sunset so book a window sea
Children entertainer programme excellent. Great to have own beach and small but adequate indoor pool and included larger outdoor pool/Spa and Tennis Court is available nearby at the Haven. Food good. Children hot buffet. Adults had to have 2 or 3 courses so a little inflexible but on the whole reasonable value for money. Very good breakfast. Flexible terrace menu. Staff very helpful.Excellent sea and harbour views. Long walk to our rooms and no lift to third floor but did not bother us much.We made good use of the on site Water Academy - also great for children. Only two restaurants nearby but Tesco Express on the doorstep. Not far by car to Poole or the Chain Ferry across the harbour mouth. Fantastic position. As children entertained when wanted to be, hotel felt quiet most of the time which was great.

Lovely weekend spent in the sandbanks hotel

The staff were exceptionally friendly and the hotel itself although looking a little but tiered was very clean and comfortable. The outside terrace means you don't have to venture farad there can't be anywhere on the beach more comfortable.

Pros: Location
Cons: Some of the decor is a little dated, i.e. the bathroom, whilst clean & tidy, could do with an update

A lovely surprise

Posted 27-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
I just wanted a place for the night as I was getting a ferry early in the morning and my room was one of the most reasonable in Poole for that night. It was not a room with a view and a bit out of the way within the hotel, hence the price, but hey! All I had to do was go downstairs and down to the seafront. I ate in the restaurant too and it was a lovely place to have a drink and just relax. I really didn't expect all this for the money I paid. The only disadvantage for me was that it was a little far from the ferry port and the city centre, but I was really pleasantly surprised about my experience.

Superb hotel rooms with balcony over looking beach

Posted 18-Apr-2014
Pros: Beautiful room with ajoining balcony for sitting out side, stage shows are spectacular & staff are very welcomming
Cons: more adult evening stage performances through out the week or at weekends
Location: fantastic beaces and coast line, great for sailing & swimming
Superb rooms with balconies overlooking the coast line. I would also highly recommend the evening entertainment show as this was extremely professional and the whole cast performed amazingly; Crazy Chaela came across remarkably talented as her dancing & singing was really awe inspiring. I would like to take the opportunity to thank her and all the performing artists involved for delivering such a stunning stage performance, as it made my stay a very happy and memorable one. Beautiful hotel and surroundings **Highly recommended** Thank you
