Stayed one night here after attending a wedding ceremony at the local Italian villa venue.
The wedding started at 1 so we needed to check in earlier than the 3pm stated time, we were pleasantly surprised when not only did they check us in early but arranged for a local taxi to get us to the wedding on time,
The standard room we booked was large well appointed & clean with a nice view along the beach towards bournemouth pier from our window
The bed was very comfy when we arrived back later & the powerful shower in the morning very refreshing followed by a large breakfast of which there was plenty to choose from. Can't fault our stay great location with a beach either side & sun terraces to relax. Would def stay again & a special thanks to Josie on reception who couldn't have been more helpful
Stayed for one night for work and arrived in the evening, in the morning opened my bedroom curtains to observe a stunning view of the beach, sea and sandbanks, will definitely come back here with my family, as there are play ares including a pirate ship literally in between the hotel and the beach!
Amazing location... not brilliant value for money
This was the most I have ever spent on a room for a holiday and whilst the location was very good I was generally disappointed.
Be warned ... There is building work going on at the moment. Next door has a massive crane and the banging and drilling was upsetting.
Expectations too high
Whilst my wife and I enjoyed our stay in the Sandbanks Hotel, we felt a little disappointed with standard of furnishings in our luxury double room, the size of the rooms are very spacious and the views out sea make up for this tired room, even if the bedroom door needed a varnish.
All staff were extremely helpful and charming, in particularly in the dinning room, breakfast was above average although not outstanding, Dinner on the first night was poor, but on the second night outstanding, never had beef so good. overall we had a good experience staying in the sandbanks if a little over priced.
Initial impression of hotel in reception and restaurant was good, however more effort with the rooms is required to bring them to the same standard as the downstairs area.
great staff and good value
Bit old fashion but excellent staff, good location and very pleasant stay
Sandbanks Hotel, not to be confused with opulence of Sandbanks itself
Located on the beautiful Sandbanks Beach, this expensive hotel has a 4* rating and commensurate price, but it does not offer the quality one expects from a top establishment.
The bland corridors, complete with stained carpets, lead through a labyrinth of doors and require accessing a function room that according to the sign is constantly in use; guests are directed on a detour to reach reception and the other facilities. The standard family room, whilst large did not have air conditioning and was too hot in the evening/night even though it was late September, what must it be like in the height of summer. The decor in the room was tired, as it is throughout the hotel, the chairs in the breakfast room/ restaurant are worn and urgently need updating. The only saving grace was the small swimming pool which was warm and ideal for my daughter, the life guard was a pleasant, helpful chap too. All in all the hotel was a real disappointment, failing short of my expectations in many areas and it is in need of a significant update before I would consider returning.
Brilliant staff and owners
Great stay staff carnt do enough for you.
Yes it's under refurbishment but patents is a vertue and this place is going to be amazing !!!
Just one night
I was pleased to find my single room included a balcony overlooking the beach.
This hotel is just perfectly positioned for walks on the beach or the promenade, to enjoy the sunset and sunrise. A relaxing break in a long journey for me. Breakfast was Ok, but a tad disappointing as the variety of continental style pastries was limited and the fruit selection likewise. But this is carping, it is a very special location and a pleasant hotel.
The hotel location is fantastic, with an outside bar overlooking a lovely sandy beach the children can play while you enjoy a drink.
The family room was a good size with separate bedroom for children. The hotel could benefit from a facelift as the rooms are a bit tired, but for somewhere with access to a family friendly beach you can't go wrong.
