Human settlement in Poole dates back to the Iron Age, but whether it was the charming strolls along the seafront or the thrill of watersports that appealed to those ancient folk remains unrecorded. Head to The Sandbanks Hotel, where a two-night stay for two is just £159 (up to a £396 value), and experience the best of this handsome Dorset seaside town.

The four-star hotel is located directly opposite Poole's Blue Flag beach and close to the natural bay of Poole Harbour, which you'll be able to survey from the balcony of your Harbour View Room. Rooms are modern and comfortable, and a sauna, steam room, and swimming pool is also available to enjoy in the leisure centre.

Breakfast is included each morning in the hotel's restaurant which boasts enviable views over the sand and sea; if you return to dine in the evening you'll discover hearty yet refined food sourced from seasonal ingredients.

If the ocean is calling, then you'll glad to hear that the Watersports Academy is on hand to offer you both a one-hour session of kayaking, paddle boarding, or windsurfing—the perfect way to enjoy the three-mile stretch of Blue Flag beach that dominates the coastline. The quayside offers stunning waterside views with plenty of restaurants, cafés, and bars to while away the hours in.

This Escape is for two people. Stays from April 1 are subject to a £60 supplement. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at, stating the hotel name as subject.

  • "The town has grown up around its pretty old harbour, which was once busy with fishing boats and trading vessels, and now bustles with designer yachts and cruise boats heading to the offshore islands around the bay."
