At less than£50 a room you can't expect much,but it was a good stay in a pleasant hotel. All the staff were friendly,the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The bar area is quite small but ok, ... more

Thank you for your review Alan. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will stay with us again. From all at the Sandpiper I would like to take the opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and successful 2019.


16/12/2018 ELAINE P,

Well what can I say we were all very excited to say the least about coming here for our Christmas party. Couldn't fault the food whatsoever more than enough but far too much veg that gets wasted and ... more

Thank you for you review Elaine P. We are obviously disappointed with your feedback and have made enquiries about the comments you have made. First of all, we are pleased you enjoyed the meal and apologise that you received too much veg. When catering for a large number of people, it is inevitable that some will have smaller appetites than others but we have noted your comments. The bar staff on duty were regular members of staff and none of them were new starters. The DJ is our regular DJ and is not from a nursing home. We have not received any other adverse comments about the music at the event or at any of our events. We have, however, checked with him and he has confirmed that he played at least two hours of Christmas music, much of it before midnight. He also announced on several occasions that he was happy to take requests. The small selection of Northern Soul music he played was requested by another party at the event and appeared to be popular with other guests at the event as they joined in with the dancing. The DJ has a huge selection of music and had you made him aware of the type of music you prefer he would certainly have taken this on board. The feedback we have received from other parties at the event has been very positive but we are sorry if the event did not meet your expectations and thank you for the feedback you have provided.

At £45 what can you ask for?

29/11/2018 Steppenwolfie, Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Nothing exceptional - on the contrary. But what can you demand when you pay £45 for a bed and parking? OK for business but not a romantic hideaway. Room occupation at 10% so probably not around next y... more

So much better than expected for the price

28/10/2018 liz d,

Had difficulty finding a moderately priced hotel for the weekend to visit Chatsworth and Hardwick Hall. The price was more than competitive and I was swayed by the reviews. Although the hotel is not '... more
