We were surprised to find a Chinese restaurant within the Sandbanks Hotel. We could not believe it was the Ocean Palace, which used to be one of our favourite Chinese restaurants near Boscombe but it had closed down. Luckily, I believe they had the same chef and we enjoyed our lunch with amazing views of the sandy beach. The food...

Stayed one night! Building from outside looked tired. Reception and bar looks like it has had a bit of attention. Family room was big and balcony was great. Bit of a trek through hotel to get to our room and had to go through the entertainment area to get to it. Straight through the middle of a kids club going...

The location is beautiful. You can't fault that. The hotel sits on a really lovely beach. But that's sadly pretty much where it ends. Which is a shame, because it could be amazing. I can get past the faded 1960s decor, or the litter-strewn corridors on a full 18 hours after new years' celebrations that caused them. I can even...

My husband and I decided to go to Poole instead of our usual Bournemouth and were pleasantly surprised by the Sandbanks Hotel. Although there would have been staff to help, there were steps and no ramps to use to pull our rather over packed suitcase up. The staff were very helpful and polite and gave us directions to our room...

We had a wonderful stay at the Sandbanks over Christmas this year. The staff worked unstintingly to make our time as enjoyable as possible and a big family with a wide spread of ages all had a fantastic Christmas. Josef and his staff were particularly brilliant, I don't know how they stayed standing. Nothing was too much trouble and they...
