Over night stop

Posted 27-May-2016
This hotel was fine for what we needed but I wouldn't class it as a 4star hotel. Furniture and decor rather worn out and dated in the room. The food in the bar wasn't amazing and was over priced but the hotel staff were all courteous, we enjoyed going in the pool and on the beach and breakfast was excellent.

Tired Hotel

Posted 23-May-2016
Generally this hotel was reasonably good value. The bed was ok, food reasonably good, staff friendly and helpful. However the hotel has a traditional 1990s feel to it, and has targeted the wedding market at the eves in the weekend that results in loud 80s and 90s disco music until late hours.

Schönes Hotel mit direktem Strandzugang

Posted 07-May-2016
Pros: Personal und Lage
Cons: Modernisierung der Zimmer.
Location: Poole, direkt in den sogenannten Sandbanks (vergleichbar mit Sylt bezogen auf die Häuser ringsherum)
Ein schönes Hotel das vor allem durch die Lage, dem Service und das Essen besticht. Den Spabereich kann ich nicht bewerten, da ich ihn nicht genutzt habe. Das Hotel ist ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen und die Zimmer könnten z.T. eine neue Möblierung vertragen. Alles ist aber sehr sauber und aufgeräumt. Klasse ist der super Service denn an zuvorkommenden Personal scheint es nicht zu mangeln. Dennoch wirkt es nicht aufdringlich und daher ist das Personal das größte Plus dieses Hotels. Das Essen im hoteleigenen Seaview Restaurant ist Spitze. Dort wird auch das Frühstücksbüffet serviert (kontinental und auch englisch). Man verweilt gerne länger im Restaurant wegen der Aussicht auf das Meer. Gerne empfehle ich dieses Hotel weiter.

Great view from the room

I struggle to know why this hotel has a 4 star rating. In need of bulldozing.

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.

Weekend Break

Posted 11-Apr-2016 on Hotels
My wife was working but myself and my daughter enjoyed the beach the hotel was a big disappointment, grubby and very tired looking needs a lot of maintenance its a shame the area is beautiful. You had a small children entertainment weekend it was very noisy which we had to walk right though the middle of to get to our room. We choose not to use any of the facilities including restaurant and bar areas because of the above.
