          I would like to know WHY Fjb hotels do not answer the criticism about there hotel at Sandbanks? They seem to want the money rather than customer satisfaction! I had a feeling that they were not bothered about customer feedback when i found a filled out form in my room from January and this was in March. Could someone please answer, as i paid nearly £300 for 2 nights and was disgraceful. I have a feeling they are not bothered, give me the job to sort and i will!

          Hi Clare, It was interesting reading your review. I have booked a balcony on the front hoping for first floor. I originally booked harbour views but thought car park view. Tell me are there many stairs to the first floor as is it as dated as people are making out. After reading your review i feel more comfortable and looking forward to our trip. Nette
