Building Societies


118 Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1NA, UK – 0800 554 0320

I can't believe that people write reviews of Building Society branches! I came looking for the postal address & stumbled on this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This branch could do with attending to the air conditioning, if it has any. Staffed by lot of older people, mainly women. Could do with a staff focussed health regime. Air quality: dingy, stuffy. Maybe employ a Building Surveyor and a employee health specialist to encourage interest in Nationwide as a modern and progressive business. Usually busy, long queues. I think the whole branch needs a slight overhaul. Nice pleasant staff. Strange smell as soon as entering. I heard they clean the composite stone floor with bees wax. Not good. Organic matter decays producing bad odours. Maybe get some male staff for a balance. Women though good at customer relations and data entry are often not too good at technical and manual stuff. Overall impression: nice, friendly and helpful staff but the ambience is a bit jaded/whiffy/outdated. I think the branch was last modernised in mid to early 1990's.

Dental Surgeries

Shelley Manor Dental

Shelley Manor Medical Centre, Beechwood Ave, Bournemouth BH5 1LX, UK – 01202 443882

Tim has helped make my teeth look great. I am delighted with a minor adjustment Tim recommended to my front tooth. His suggestion made a major difference to my smile and put a pep in my step! I started at this dentistry and now the whole family loves it. All 5 of us are happy with the service and have better teeth for it :)

After going through many other dentists in the Bournemouth and Southbourne area, I have found none that can come close to the service and quality of workmanship provided by Tim and the rest of the practice. I previously had root work done by Tim a few years ago, after leaving the country and returning I tried out another private dentist in Bournemouth Town Centre, as it came highly recommended by a friend; I thought I would give them a try. Needless to say, Shelley Manor had set the bar too high and the opposition did not live up to expectations. I promptly returned to Shelley Manor to have the rest of my work done, which has been a pleasure throughout. Tim has always been knowledgeable and provided unbiased advice, whenever I have asked for it. If you are looking for a friendly, caring and professional service; look no further. Keep up the good work Shelley Manor Dental.

Wooton Lodge Dental Practice

717 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6AF, UK – 01202 394587

Regarding Wooton lodge dental surgery, I have been going there for a few years now. I find the reception staff very helpful at all times and very impressed with Dr. Shane Mcrea as a fine and highly experienced dentist and always cheerful. I would not like to go anywhere else now. So impressed with the whole team there along with the expertise of ? Dr. Shane Mcrea.

Been going to these guys since I was a kid which is like 15 years, always been great. I have Dr Francisca Alcada-Ribeiro, I'm nervous about these things and she always makes me feel relaxed! Also see the Hygenist every now and again who is very good.

4 Tolpuddle Gardens, Bournemouth BH9 3LQ, UK – 01202 522622

Lovely Dr surgery with lots of helpful professional people. Especially Lisa Plewka who is the most caring and friendly health care visitor I ever met.

Always had good service from Reception & doctors have all been caring & carried out their duties efficiently.

Woodlea House Surgery

1 Crantock Grove, Bournemouth BH8 0HS, UK – 01202 300903

I have been with the surgery for 8 years & have always found them to be excellent, very happy with the service

Good doctors who care about their patients and listen to them too. Can be a little frustrating getting an appointment at short notice but I think every GP surgery nationwide is under-funded which doesn't help. However, they always squeeze me in due to my chronic medical conditions, and are always helpful. Been happy to use this surgery since I moved into the area over 10 years ago.

Providence Practice

12 Walpole Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4HA, UK – 01202 395195

Reception staff has changed fortunately, more respectful and real caring service. Easily to get appointments. GP 's great.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Castle Ln E, Bournemouth BH7 7DW, UK – 01202 303626

Fantastic treatment the staff were friendly and efficient. The doctor saw me over 3 consecutive days and treated my retinal tear. Amazing care thanks so much.

Nothing negative to say about our NHS.however plenty to say about people who abuse it and the wonderful staff struggling to look after Ungreatful Folk. Smokers. Maybe you need a lesson in reading and respect for others. Monday I saw smokers sat at the main entrance where there are 5 notices “SMOKING PROHIBITED IN THIS AREA” there is also an arrow directing you to smoking areas. Not only that the whole area is littered with filthy cigarette ends on the and around the benches. It looks dreadful and smells. I was ofcourse ignored by a smoker when I pointed this out to them. It’s a hospital not a pub garden. If you have no respect for yourself and your health I guess there is very little chance for the rest.

Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital

67 Lansdowne Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1RW, UK – 01202 291866

Exceptional service pre and post theatre. A massive thank you to Mr Nick Davies the consultant surgeon, and all the Purbeck section team for looking after me with 5 star service. I can't list all the names as nurse said wouldn't I remember and she was right. Anyone receiving treatment here will not be disappointed

First class if you can afford it. Like being in a hotel.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

30B Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6NU, UK – 01202 292564

I have been a member of the Church ofJesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) since late 1963. I was working in in a shop in Kinson, an area of Bournemouth at that time. Two LDS missionaries had come into the shop to buy something and had a conversation with the shop assistant who was an Australian. The upshot of this was they left a book called Meet the Mormons with her.. She was not really interested in reading it . I worked in the workshop above the shop and on occasion it was necessary for me to go in the shop itself to get something or other. On this occasion she asked me to give this book to a lady in an upstairs office, which I did. She also wasn't interested in looking at it so I left it on my work bench and carried on with my work Lunch time came around so I sat down to eat my sandwiches and as I had nothing else to do I started to read the Book. I got really interested in it and asked the Australian girl if I could take it home with me to finish reading it. She agreed and I took it home and finished it. About ten days later she contacted me and said that there were two Americans in the shop who wished to speak to me. I went down and spoke to them and we conversed about the book and what I thought of it.. The rest is history, Yes I did eventually join their church and I have been a member for over fifty years now. My wife and I go regularly to Church nearly every Sunday health permitting. The views of the Bournemouth Chapel you see here are lovely . The building consistent of Chapel for worship, a cultural hall , a kitchen, classrooms for. Sunday school and other meetings, toilets, a library, a walk in font for baptisms and rooms to change in. A large car park and at least two offices. Most Latter Day Saint Chapel's have these facilities? I accidentally came across this site which has asked me to is rate and review it. So I am giving it ten out of ten. And my review you have just read. Just a little bit more. There are other Chapels within our area. Poole, Christchurch, Weymouth,, Jersey, Yeovil, Salisbury

This is a Christian Church. Everybody is welcome.

Metropolitan Community Church

Hannington Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JT, UK – 01202 430888

The service today went extremely by the dedicated guys with very little time to prepare due to the absence of our paster Dwanyne who was taken ill and now in bmth hospital. I and all would like to wish him a very speedy recovery.

Lovely friendly church serving especially the LBGT community.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Bournemouth

The Cliff Top Restaurant

93 St Michael's Rd, Bournemouth BH2 5DS, UK – 01202 554665

The owner Mick and his staff are absolutely wonderful. They had great vegetarian options for me, lovely pork for my meat eating other half and they even did us a random meal of mash and veg for our 13 month old when we asked if they could. Best of all they made me a special dessert as I'm pregnant and have a craving lol. The food is out of this world amazing, the atmosphere is great and the customer service is excellent. If you're in Bournemouth you must eat here, you're a fool if you don't stop in! We came last time we took a trip to Bournemouth hence coming back again and have decided every time we come to Bournemouth, like Arnie, we'll be back!!

Went on Monday so I thought I would not book. We were seated straight away but it soon filled up. So my advice is to book to avoid disappointment. A nice warm welcome by the staff. Service was spot on. Food well presented and delicious. Highly recommended

Arbor Restaurant

Arbor Restaurant, The Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX, UK – 01202 498900

Food is exceptional. Staff attentive to some but not others. Perhaps it was because we had a baby that I had to ask for someone to take our order three times whilst couples coming in after ordered before us. Not deserving of the 10pc tip automatic added to bill, and the receipt has s space for more tips. Tips should be at my discretion and not automatically added. Would not go again due to staff, but recommend for food which I'd give 5 stars.

Went there tonight for a late Valentine's day meal this is our second visit to the restaurant neither times we have been able to fault it staff where attentive presentation of the restraunt and food was fantastic would reccomend this place to anyone .


6-4 Richmond Hill, Bournemouth BH1 1BA, UK – 01202 001421

Totally disagree with Sally. Both my children have been to the school and both have left with fond memories and a rounded education. Every aspect of their education is catered for and they felt cared for, understood and nurtured. It’s a small school with a huge heart and I would recommend it to everyone who needs a place for their child to flourish.

A fantastic school. Lovely family feel with high standards.
