  • "The apartment was very comfortable and easy to stay in - perfectly located with lovely views."

  • "Yet another great holiday, thank you, due to the flat, location and facilities."

    However, there is one annoying problem: the key pad on the block entrance: the car park side is not responding correctly; and is very difficult to gain entry. The “1” key is the problem, using a mobility scooter takes away the option to use the other door. We weren’t aware of this problem last September.

    Thank you for your feedback. Access from the car park side has been amended to overcome the problem with the keypad - Brian (Owner) Property Owner

  • "Great location, silly things, lights in en suite blown, only plays radio 2 on radio Remote needs batteries, dimmer switch on kitchen units u/s."

    Large bed mattress needs turning and a four slice toaster would round things of nicely.Those things aside great place to stay and if the owners want me to pop down for a free weekend, I’ll rectify the niggles and chuck in a toaster.

    We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we will resolve the small issues that you have raised. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "As usual the whole experience was of a very high standard."

    The kitchen and floors looked better for the make over. The en-suite was suffering with lights not working. Both bedroom balcony door keys need lubricants. Just observations not complaints.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have upgraded the en-suite lights and the lubricated the balcony locks so they are now operating smoothly. Brian (owner). Property Owner

  • "Have stayed at Sandbanks over a number of years and feel it’s about time the red furniture was changed as it has become uncomfortable over time."

    Other than that, it’s a lovely apartment. Rather concerned though, that on arrival one of the four balcony chairs was unusable due to a broken leg. That was DANGEROUS. No warning was given - and this is why I have not given my usual 5 stars.

    Thank you for letting us know about the chair as this had not been reported. We will attend to it. We hope you enjoyed your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful immaculate apartment."

    Extremely clean to high standard. Excellent location with views over West Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Few minor niggles; toilet roll holders floppy, door locks a bit stiff especially in small bedroom,parking space only suitable for small family car. Would happily stay at this appointment again.

    We will definitely re-book.

  • "Very highly recommended."

    The apartment was extremely well furnished with every thing you would need on holiday. The view from the balcony was amazing and watching all the boats was really entertaining. You are spoilt for choice with places to eat within a short walk, hence we didn’t cook much!! The Jurassic bus routes were an experience and very handy. The beaches were lovely with great walks. We really had a great week at Sandstones.

    The welcome pack was a lovely surprise and very well received. Ideal location, couldn't fault a thing. Plenty of places to eat and drink, also enjoyed the boat trips along the coast. Highly recommended and looking forward to returning

  • "The property was spacious and clean but the parking facilities were poor and the following issues in the apartment were found on arrival."

    The toilet in the ensuite wouldn't flush, there were 2 large tears on one of the sofas in the lounge, 2 light bulbs in the table lamp weren't working. The beds were very uncomfortable. The views from the balcony were lovely but the locals racing up and down in their cars/bikes late at night ruined the holiday.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The apartment is lovely, clean and comfortable. The view is fantastic from the balcony. I would just suggest that you need to renew the frying pans. But we will definitely be back!

    We would love to welcome you back for another stay, and will look into replacing the frying pans! The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed good weather during our stay at Sandstones."

    Lovely views of the harbour, the east cliff and the sea from the balcony and sitting room. Well equipped kitchen. The double bed was comfortable, the bed in the twin room was a little too firm. Overall, I would recommend Sandstones and would consider returning. Chris & Maureen

    As regular guests, we really appreciate that the apartment is maintained to such a high standard.

  • "It’s a lovely apartment."

    I’d definitely stay there again. But we felt like it could have felt cleaner (mopped floors) and for me the height of everything was just a little on the low side I.e. sinks, hands towel rails etc. Also the beds could have been more comfortable. Maybe it was the slacks underneath the bed being out of position or simply I’m used to memory foam. And the styling of the apartment definitely want to our tastes (like the red leather sofas) but overall my improvement suggestions are nit picking. It’s a lovely apartment, the location, view, facilities like the extendable table and the balcony are amazing.

    I'm sorry to hear that the cleanliness didn't meet our expected standards. I have referred your concerns to our Housekeeping Manager to address. I do hope that you choose to stay with us again in the future. Property Owner

About the location


Bridport 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 11 miles

West Bay, fondly known as “The Gateway to the Dorset Jurassic Coast” and popularised by the TV series Broadchurch, lies close to the glorious sandstone cliffs of Golden Cap, at the western end of the dramatic pebbly Chesil Beach. This is a wonderful seaside location, perfect for family holidays, offering scenic walks along the South West Coast Path, as well as ample opportunities to try your hand at sea fishing, crabbing, boating and golf. Visit the homes of Thomas Hardy and TE Lawrence, the Tank Museum at Bovington or the Naval air Museum at Yeovil. Only 1.5 miles away is the vibrant market town of Bridport, featured in the TV series, River Cottage. The area holds plenty of attractions to suit the whole family! Just a short drive West takes you to Charmouth for fossil hunting, to the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis, and to River Cottage HQ near Axminster. To the East are the lovely Sub-tropical Gardens and Swannery at Abbotsbury, and the golden sands of Weymouth. This wonderful location makes an ideal base for a great family holiday.
