You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Building Societies

Nationwide

448 Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH9 2HB, UK – 0800 554 1977

Very friendly staff, excellent customer service. Can't fault them 😊

Excellent customer service. Very helpful and friendly staff on a whole manner of different issues.

Nationwide

New Oxford House, 118-120 Old Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH1 1NA, UK – 0800 554 0320

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 Overall impression: nice, friendly and helpful staff but the ambience is a bit jaded/whiffy/outdated.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.

Rather hot inside during the summer but the staff are very prompt with any enquiries.

Shelley Manor Dental

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

I recently had a hygienist appointment with Vickie, she was great as I was very nervous. Vickie was patient, gentle, understanding and very informative, I would highly recomend Vickie to anyone.

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 :)

Castle Lane Dental Care

288 Castle Lane West, Bournemouth BH8 9TU, UK – 01202 513292

Happy to recommend this dental practice. Been going there for a while now and have been impressed with care received. My previous dentist retired and not at all happy with practice recommended as alternative. Felt they were quick to recommend expensive work. Mr Teja has a different approach and does not push expensive procedures but is very thorough - best check ups I have had. Very grateful to be seen at short notice today with broken tooth. Five Star Service.

Was staying in Bournemouth with work and front veneer came off. Managed to get urgent appointment here within the hour. Seen quickly, treated effectively and cost was fair. Excellent service all round. Thank you.

Beaufort Road Surgery

21 Beaufort Rd, Bournemouth BH6 5AJ, UK – 01202 433081

Love this surgery, receptionists and doctors are all lovely. Don't have a bad thing to say. Wonderful. Dr Mitchell is the best doctor I've ever had!

Reception and clinical staff always polite and helpful. I've been a patient at the surgery for 13 years and have never had any issues with the service or the staff - only positive things to say.

Denmark Road Medical Centre

37 Denmark Rd, Bournemouth BH9 1PB, UK – 01202 521111

I cannot speak more highly of this practice. Doctors have always been extremely caring and supportive given the difficulties of the job. Never been told I have to wait weeks. Thank you to all the staff.

staff are amazing and very helpful

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.

Any doctors can be busy at certain times, but whenever I've had an emergency they have gone out of their way to help myself and my children, my son had a cut on his head that split open again slightly, there was 20 minutes between me calling and my son seeing a doctor, that's good practice if you ask me xxx

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

Great Hospital in fact excellent physical space of very good well kept clean efficient modern well laid out much better than sum of its counterparts in nearby towns staff superb very friendly very efficient organised really he's a very good Hospital

Very clinical here... doesn't feel like 'home' prefer Poole General Hospital has more of a homely feel to it

Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital

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

Friendly and efficient staff from receptionists to catering to nurses. That coupled with calm and professional attitude of consultant and his theatre team made the experience quite enjoyable. Obviously the operation being a success added to that.

To all the Staff at the Nuffield Apologies for the time lapse of this review I've been busy healing.      Firstly a massive thank you to all concerned with my care and treatment during my brief stay at your hospital.  Thank you especially to Doctor Carter, who in the short time we chatted before the op allayed any doubts or worries that I might have had and more importantly for the beautiful job done, many thanks sir.      It's two weeks tomorrow that I had my op and the healing process is going very well. I was a very fortunate man indeed to be treated and looked after so well at the Nuffield, so once again thanks to you all. David Lamb

Kings Park Hospital

Gloucester Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JF, UK – 01202 303757

Thought they were excellent

I have to counter the negative comment. I am not going to say mental health services are great in this country (what-so-ever). All the cuts and society not rating mental health issues etc.. But I feel the people at CMHT Kings Park (with what they have) really do there best and i am not sure I would be here without them. I have the best psychiatrist ever (Dr Schrader) and had some great care workers that all do care..

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.

Citygate Church

Here to see "Wardrobes and Rings" a play about CSLewis and JRRTolkien. The hall is big and a little cold but the acoustics are good. Similarly the room is a little cold but the welcome was warm. Accessibility is good. Parking reasonably close.

Lansdowne Church

Woodbury Ave, Bournemouth BH8 0HH, UK – 01202 297977

Arbor Restaurant

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

Lovely, quiet restaurant within a hotel. Adventurous menu catering for gluten free but not dairy free. The staff work with you within the limits of the menu. Presentation cool and you are not rushed. Journey at your own pace. Well placed for a good walk along East Cliff, with a free and sizeable car park. The jelly and ice cream dessert is a wonderful take on a family favourite.

Another excellent meal in the Arbor's beautiful dining room. The restaurant has a varied menu including British favourites with a twist; beef in red wine with dumplings. Prices are high, but reflect the quality of the food and service.Beetroot and dill soup sounds odd; but it was outstanding and appropriate for a cold March night. This is a sedate restaurant with a varied clientele; business men; couples and three ladies (us). The Arbor Restaurant is in the boutique, Eco hotel: The Green House.

Top Bananas Pre-School

The Life Centre, 713 Wimborne Rd, Bournemouth BH9 2AU, UK – 01202 510899

My little boy went here as his first nursery at 2. I was extremely apprehensive at first but the staff and setting were absolutely fantastic! My little boy loved it immediately and my nerves were settled 🍌 The preschool is a lovely size with fantastic indoor and outdoor activities! Staff are always so willing to help and provide extra support if needed! Uniforms are 1000000% cute as well ❤️ Overall great service great staff and lovely setting!

My daughter has been attending Top Bananas for just over a year. She attends 2 days a week and always comes home smiling and telling me all about her day with her friends. Staff are so friendly and welcoming.. always speak highly of them and would recommend it to anyone looking to place their children in to nursery/pre school.

Can't even describe it! Love them to bits!

St. Martin's School

15 Stoke Wood Rd, Bournemouth BH3 7NA, UK – 01202 292011

Fantastic! We are so pleased that we found this school for our children. It has a lovely family atmosphere. The head teacher and staff are so enthusiastic, hard working and approachable. The small class sizes ensure plenty of individual attention and we are very happy with the curriculum and with all aspects of the school. They have their own large sports field behind the building, and are also very close to the Stokewood Sports Centre where they have swimming and gym lessons each week. Highly recommended!

Woo St Martin's! I went here and have such fond and happy memories. It got my friends and I through the 11+ and into BSG/BS and set me up very well for secondary school as I was ahead of most of the kids there in Year 7. I also remember it being a small school with a happy family vibe where no bullying took place. I loved the sports days and school trips in particular. I am still friends with some of my class today and if I still live in Bournemouth when I have my own children, St Martin's would genuinely be where I would send them.

Cambian Wing College

126 Richmond Park Rd, Bournemouth BH8 8TH, UK – 01202 635630

Visited and like it. Meets the needs of adults with mental health conditions really well, all sorts of therapies in place. Don't worry about the colleges main description of autism, it actually helps a lot of different problems. The only thing I'd complain about is a mixture of higher and lower ability students, maybe not the best match. Brilliant either way.

Kings Bournemouth

58 Braidley Rd, Bournemouth BH2 6LD, UK – 01202 293535

I've heard very good things from students that have been there friend of mine is a host family and has had several students there all of them have said that the tuition is excellent

The best language school in the UK. Huge nationality mix, nice people, great teachers and enjoyable lessons.
