The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were very willing with any requests. The food was good and the staff were so friendly. The room was adequate and the water was always hot. The hotel was in a very good position for the beach and also for the bus into town.

Thank you for your feedback on your stay at the Bournemouth Sands Hotel. I am sorry to read that your journey was too long. As an alternative you can also book on a self-drive basis, or our hotels are all near main public transport links.

Some windows do not open very wide, gets very hot on the top floor, but they did provide me with a fan. Lovely spot not far from beach and town. Can not fault the meals very tasty. Would stay again had a lovely time.

Another excellent holiday at this hotel. The staff are all so helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Food is very good and the entertainment, which is every night, is also very good. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. We have booked already for September and New Year. The manager, Richard, is a lovely man.

Lovely short break. Excellent value for money. Good food and very clean hotel. Furniture in room was tired and dated but a comfortable room to stay in. We didn't use the entertainment room as the guests were all old but hotel is situated very close to the beach with nice bars. Hotel is also close to the city centre.
