Reviewed 8 August 2014

Just returned from a holiday at Bournemouth sands hotel. The room was a lovely size, staff are very helpful and friendly, the manager was great and made you feel welcome, the food and entertainment were also good, would go again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have showers, so need to request a room with one if prefer a shower to a bath

Have stayed at the Bournemouth Sands Hotel for many years. Had 4 holidays in 2013 here this was my 3rd stay in 2014 looking forward to my next break all rooms are clean. Food is as good as i have received in any hotel Staff are excellent willing to help. Entertainment is good dance floor is a bit small My only comment is could breakfast start at 8.00am this would help when going out all day

Room Tip: have stayed on all 3 floors 3rd is quieter

We have just returned from a 6 day holiday at the Bournemouth Sands hotel. Our room was a good size, and very clean. The staff are always willing to help and customer service is paramount. The food was not as good as we have had at some of the other Daish's hotels, but it was adequate and there was a good choice. Having our luggage delivered to our bedroom is really helpful, and so quick, too! The entertainment was good, especially Mike Moran (I think that was his name). The coach could have done with a bit more leg room, but the driver made two stops so that we had time to stretch our legs.
We have been to all the Daish hotels several times, and for value for money, they cannot be beaten.

It's about our further visit to the "sands" and as always the room was good, the food was good (lots of choice) and the entertainment was good. The Manager and his "staff" are excellent and will do everything possible to please. Daish's is a very reputable company and hopefully we shall be making return visits. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday. The weather was perfect also!!

Room Tip: We we're on the top floor so the seagulls were the ones making the noise!!

We went into this lovely cosy hotel most evenings as the 'Ullswater Hotel' only had entertainment two evenings out of our four evening stay.

The atmosphere, friendliness, was exceptional. We were really made to feel welcomed, unlike Ullswater Hotel.

We went there every night. Had 60s night, Bingo, Quiz, Tuesday Night was great with Bingo, Quiz and Elvis look alike, great fun. Wednesday night 60s night, also Thursday the same.

They made us feel at home, and nothing too much trouble for the staff. They had TV on in other room for my football made girlfriend and other guests.

It was a lovely hotel owned by Daishes, who welcome children in school holidays under 5's FREE.

I shall certainly stay there in future. They didn't even mind my winning Bingo as well!
Lovely Pimms £2 a glass and nothing too much trouble for staff. Also clientele friendly and great fun, we made lots of new friends. I will be returning to this hotel with my grandchildren and look forward to this.

Room Tip: perhaps ask for family room which are bigger.

We have recently returned from our 2nd visit to this hotel this year and have only good memories. With very friendly staff throughout , rooms clean and comfortable and good food (half board) which is well cooked and presented, all at very reasonable rates, this also includes entertainment in the evenings. Will definately return and recommend to family and friends.
