Nice Hotel at Fantastic Beach

Posted 26-Apr-2016
Cons: The food was ok but not exceptional. We had to eat at the bar due to an event taking place and the food was out of the freezer and expensive at that.
Sandbanks Hotel is a nice hotel with direct access and stunning views to the beach. The room was nice, clean and big. Overall a pleasant experience.

Weekend away,

Posted 13-Apr-2016
Pros: Good breakfast
Location: Ferry to Studland bay which reduced our time travelling on the road, Visited the Jurassic coastline , great views
The hotel overlooks the beach, the staff were friendly and we had our evening meal there on the first night. The breakfast was excellent as we were spoiled for choice. The weather was sunny on the second day which allowed for us to take the ferry over to Corfu Castle. Great day out.

Nothing bad but not great

Rooms dated, service reasonable, food average. Not what one expects for the price.

Lovely weekend

Posted 03-Feb-2016
Room was lovely, breakfast was exceptional and nothing seemed a problem for the staff. I had guests over for an afternoon tea and all of them said how much they enjoyed the selection of food and relaxed atmosphere. The food in the bar and restaurant was lovely - I only wish I could stay longer

Pros: two words over rated.
Cons: needs to be completely revamped and up dated I have stayed in a lot of hotel classed as a 4 star this hotel just manages a 3 star
Location: fabulous beach and walk to bournmouth...........thinking to buy a beach hut £89950...lol some people do not know the value of money.
hotel is very tired. in my opinion not classed as a four star anymore only a three star.....needs to have a complete overall................meals portions small..........staff not communicating .........adding 10 % discretionary extra to your bill without asking when you book out same with the charity donation.........added a commission charge to my bill when they should have sorted it with expedia...was sorted in the end but I find today there is no principles with some hotels/staff.
