Sandbanks Hotel

Outdoor eating area overlooking Sandbanks beach


The Sandbanks Hotel is situated in a stunning location with direct access to seven miles of beautiful Blue Flag sandy beach plus magical sea views over Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island and Poole Bay.

The hotel prides itself on being family-friendly; and we believe when it comes to family holidays it’s best to keep everybody happy. Mum, Dad, teenagers, toddlers and everyone in-between all need their own holiday heaven. That’s why we have developed exciting kids and teen entertainment programmes, plus heavenly hideaway spots for parents at our beachside resort.

Whilst parents relax, there is plenty to keep the children amused! Including soft playroom and outdoor play ground, plus children’s entertainment, where they can enjoy creative play such as painting, clay modeling plus a fun-filled programme of events with our children’s entertainers (during school holidays).

Alongside these fun activities guests may enjoy swimming in our heated pool and relaxing in the sauna, or if you are feeling energetic a work-out in our mini-gym.

However, if food is more your passion then our eateries will be pleasing to your eyes and taste buds. Situated on the beach in Sandbanks, both the Seaview Restaurant and Ocean Palace spill out onto a beachfront terrace with the most spectacular views over the sea to Studland Bay and Old Harry Rocks.

The Seaview Restaurant offers delicious English-European cuisine. Where adults will delight in traditional to continental dining while children will thoroughly enjoy the choices on their dedicated menu. There’s also the Sandbanks Beach Club, which is the perfect summertime hangout situated on the terrace. With steps leading down to the beach, this is the ideal spot to relax whilst the children explore the shore. Plus, it’s adjacent to the hotel’s outdoor sandy playground to keep them entertained whilst parents enjoy some quiet time!

To add even more choice, the hotel also houses an authentic Chinese restaurant 'Ocean Palace at Sandbanks’, offering customers a unique Asian dining experience at our stunning beach-side location. Ocean Palace brings you fresh, tasty and exciting food, expertly cooked Chinese cuisine, lovingly served and reasonably priced.

For guests who like to get their toes wet why not visit our on-site Watersports Academy offering hire or lessons on paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing - plus Kids Club and RYA Youth Courses too. Alternatively, if that sounds too energetic try sailing with our qualified crew on the FJB luxury 44ft catamaran. There is no better way to explore the stunning Jurassic coastline.

The Sandbanks Hotel is the perfect choice, whether you simply want a relaxing break, need to entertain a family, or planning a full-on activity adventure holiday - we have it all.
