Comfortable, clean hotel
Lovely late break in October. Tbh the beach is the main attraction at Sandbanks. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly. We ate at the Italian restaurant one night and the food was great! We had a room with a balcony overlooking the sea and it was bright and airy, a bit dated but clean.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disappointing….
Hotel decor is exhausted, basic and outdated. The price is too high for the experience and it lacks value for money.
