As a single traveller never know what sort of single room you will be allocated but although small my room was more than adequate with a lovely comfy bed. Was not quite use to the set meal times but considering 90 % of guests were over 65 I can quiet understand the need to have a routine which older guests... More

Lovely hotel. Room, food and entertainment great. Only criticism was chairs in concert room. Backs very hard for people sitting on them for four hours. A lot of us took cushions/pillows from our room to soften the back of the chairs.

Went on a short 4 night stay here, the hotel room was extremely creaky as the property is so old. The good is good and wholesome and plenty of it. The staff were great like one big happy family, very friendly and helpful. The entertainment in the evenings was varied. All in all very nice place to stay.

You usually get what you pay for and this is no exception. Staff and service are excellent. Food is OK but portions are small to miniscule and thr menu lacks sxcitement. In facr the meal times are just refuelling stops and there is no scope to vary your mealtimes by more than 30 minutes. Having said that, staff are comptent... More

Thank you for your review of your stay at the Bournemouth Sands Hotel. We do seat everyone for dinner between 6.30 and 7pm but if that causes a problem for an individual it can be altered you just had to speak to the hotel manager. If you required any extra food you only had to ask the waiting staff who... More

Staff in all areas really good, bedrooms clean, food good value for money, and lounges and bar comfortable. Evening entertainment was mixed but depends on personal taste. Location very good with easy walks to town and beaches and good bus services within 2 minutes walk.
