    We were upgraded to a sea view with balcony at no extra charge. Views were amazing felt like being abroad, also food in the restaurant in the evening was amazing great flavours.

    Drinks expensive and thought pool area might have been nicer as rest of hotel was. But with beach and sea being on the door step made up for it.

    We arrived to find a super hotel and a super location. It was wonderful to be able to walk out onto the beach and to have such a fabulous view from the bedroom balcony.The staff were outstanding in all ways and really it was just perfect. To bring our family here with us including grand children of various ages is what we are considering in the near future but also we intend to return ourselves in the next few weeks for me to convalescence from an operation - I cannot wait to get there! We have told many friends of our visit to your Sandbanks Hotel .

    Friendly efficient and comfortable

    When booking we filled in to have a sea view but ended up with a view out of a side window of a small part of bay beach. Room was ok but distance from reception eas long and down a corridor in need of a review for walls and carpet damage.

    Superb

    Well run comfortable hotel. Good Staff. Great location Perhaps a little more information about local area.

    Room Service. If you are going to offer Room Service review the time taken to deliver food and drink and your Room Service menu.

    Superb

    I thought the staff made the experience of staying at the hotel excellent! The location is like being in the Med but in the UK. The rooms are spacious, worthwhile paying extra and having a balcony

    Does need at little updating to be a true 4 Star experience

    Location

    Spa and leisure facilities were very disappointing, not what we expected. The spa was only open until 1pm. The restaurant was very over priced, compared to other lovely restaurants in the local area.
