We couldn't have asked for more - when we arrived, our room was very warm so we asked for a fan & it arrived within minutes. All the staff are very friendly & helpful & the entertainment of quizzes, Bingo & live music to dance to if you wish, very enjoyable. As the hotel is high up on West Cliff... More

there are some areas of the hotel that are badly in need of a fresh coat of paint, especially the coffee lounge. there are only 3 rooms that can be upgraded and obviously you have to book well ahead to get one of these. Our room was fine apart from the very small bathroom which was claustrophobic especially as we... More

Another stay at this lovely hotel. Staff are wonderful...nothing too much trouble. Great evening entertainment. Nice clean room. Close to seafront and just a short walk to the pier and gardens, or you can take the lift down.

As usual had a very enjoyable stay at the Sands Hotel Bournemouth in July 2016. Staff very friendly and helpful. Meals basic but excellent swift service and meals hot. The room we had very comfortable and a lovely walk in shower. Could do with a little face lift but nothing desperate . We will certainly go again

Very good hotel, in an ideal position, close to town centre and beaches, bus stops nearby, yet in a quiet area. Excellent meals with good choice and first class service. Enjoyable entertainment in the evenings
