Positive Reviews

Beautiful location next to the sand and overlooking the sea

You really could not ask for a better location in Poole Located on a narrow sand spit with the sea either side of you, enjoy strolls along the beach and picturesque views from your room.

Large comfortable rooms with balconies

Enjoy spacious, well furnished rooms with modern facilities at Sandbanks, and you will also have a balcony with great views to your enjoy morning coffee or tea on.

Friendly staff help you make the most of your stay

If you have not visited Poole before have a chat with the helpful staff working here They will explain exactly what there is to do and see in the area so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourself.

Negative Reviews

Small lift struggles to cope with lots of luggage

The compact lift cannot hold many people and becomes very cramped when trying to transport suitcases up and down from your room Try to limit your packing when you stay here, especially if you are staying on the third floor, because the lift does not reach it.

Outdated decor and old fittings need to be fixed

The hotel is starting to get a tired and worn appearance in places, with things like fading wallpaper and ill-fitting shower head holders letting it down A refurbishment would do this hotel a world of good.

Lacks the small things to impress

There are no comfy slippers, warm bathrobes or complimentary toiletries greeting you on arrival at the Sandbanks Unfortunately the hotel fails to make the effort to make you really impressed with the rooms here.
