With a very big marble tiled bathroom with his and hers sinks, a... More

My husband and I stayed here during the Easter holidays. We loved everything about the hotel including bar food and restuarant. The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff and manager were so accomadating. Cannot praise this hotel enough! Went as a result of recommendations on Trip Adviser and definitely no regrets. Can't wait to go back. By the way the... More

I stayed here for a night midweek for a work conference. My room (309) was lovely. There was a lounge area, a separate toilet and bathroom and two beds, one single and one double just for me. The views from the bar in the hotel are perfect as it is right on the water. The staff in the reception, in... More

Just met friends for a business project meeting over coffees. Great view of the Haven and Ferry from the lounge bar, and the comings and goings of the fishing vessels and yachts. Not bad coffee, but the second was quite tepid, and we thought it was because the lounge got very busy and the machine couldn't cope. The baristas were... More

Gorgeous spot. It is, as others have said, reminiscent of being on a boat, as you are mostly surrounded by water. We had a balcony room, over looking the harbour. We sat in the evening warmth watching the little ferry chug back and forth, as the sun slowly sank into the horizon. A precious experience - but not a priceless... More

I spent 3 nights here on a business trip. The location is fantastic, the downstairs public rooms are very pleasant. Food is excellent although expensive as are the bar prices. I was in one of the standard 'cheaper' rooms. It was small - luckily, though a double, I was the sole occupant. There was no view out of the window... More

My wife and I just spent two nights here. It may be a little tired but it is clean, rooms were large and comfortable with everything you could need. Staff were very pleasant, very helpful and very professional. The food was quite simply stunning. We could not fault anything we had over our stay and I was sad to be... More

OK, let's start with the arrival. Mrs Steve was accosted in the foyer by an oldish chap that wanted to know if she was "Ruth". He was on a blind date and The Haven was the RV point. Moaned that he had spent £16 getting there from Bournemouth and Ruth nowhere to be found. Anyway, checked in. The room was... More

Stayed at hotel for two nights and was lucky to get the room facing beach. Hotel is very clean, superbly maintained and has one of the best views in Poole. Location is on tip of sandbanks which means you are in one of the posh area of Poole !! I would recommend Haven for anyone want to relax and spend... More
