They make banging cocktails over looking sea . What's not to like about Sandbanks it's very chic . The staff are very friendly and polite , the food is very good. When ever time to make up with friends it's always at Sandbanks hotel. I would recommend it to anyone.

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...
