Sandbanks Hotel offers low-key, laid-back digs with wonderful views over Poole Bay and direct access to Sandbanks, a Blue Flag beach that fringes one of the most coveted areas in the country. Sandbanks is famed for its soft golden sands, turquoise blue waters, luxury yachts, vintage champagne and its crop of celebrity residents.

You make your own holiday here – you can spend your days exploring the beach; you can nip inside to the indoor heated pool, sauna and steam room; or you can head into the local area to play golf, go sailing, cycling or kayaking, as well as a host of other activities.
