We have just stayed at Sandbanks Hotel for a weekend, and we regularly do so each January. This year our experience was even better than last year.
A warm welcome at reception greeted us as before and we found the room to be spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Excellent hospitality tray and bathroom toiletries. Yes the room may be in need of redecoration but the odd scuff mark on a wall does not affect your stay. The bathroom appeared to have been recently re-tiled.
The food in the main restaurant was excellent!! In our opinion the food was of 5* quality, in both content, presentation and service. The restaurant was full as we were attending a function, however, due to the professionalism of Restaurant manager Joseph (Jose Martin) and his well organised team, all food was served promptly, efficiently and with style. Joseph is indeed a valuable asset to Sandbanks Hotel. Despite being in charge of a full restaurant Joseph had no trouble in the timely provision of alternative menu items where needed, he also made a point of asking each table if everything was alright. He managed to do this with genuine concern despite being so busy.
To sum up, our experience was superb, and throughout the hotel we found all the staff to have the right balance between being highly professional and proficient as well as having a friendly disposition. We look forward to a future visit.
