Sandbanks Hotel is beautifully positioned on the beach, which is why we booked it. The hotel itself is smart and new in some places but very tired and scruffy in others.
Our room was petfect although we didnt like the old fashioned tiled ceiling. It was roomy, large sofa, fridge and balcony. We had a harbour view which was lovely but a little noisy because of the road. We plan to go again but book a beach view room. The corridor was truly depressing! Dirty old carpet, dingy walls, old doors, needs refurbing!
We loved the beach bar, stunning views, spacious and elegant, food ok, could be better.
We were on the third floor which was a problem as the lift only goes to the second floor. A tiny dark old fashioned lift. They definitely need a new spacious lift that services the whole hotel.
The staff are excellent. Very pleasant, helpful and effecient, top marks for them.
We will definitely go again and would recommend .
