I messed up with tickets for the ferry to go to Jersey and had to stay one day in Poole. I didn't know where to go, etc. And was quite upset. But the staff in this hotel, the room and price they gave me cheered me up! Very good location, very clean room with a nice view to the garden... More

Stay 29-30 October 2014. Staff Great on Checking in and out. Room clean and spacious. Location is central to Poole, Not far from Harbour and restaurants. Plenty of walking nearby or ferry to Brownsea Island. Well recommended and will return.

Stayed on a Monday night in late October which may have affected things (but shouldn't). The 2 rooms we were given had no air, no windows that could be opened. The bathrooms were much in need of refurbishment. The dining room was closed for dinner and we had a very second rate meal in the bar. There seemed to be... More

Stayed here for 1 night with my fiancée for her birthday. Found the Antelope to be a very nice place to stay, very close to the Quay and only a short walk to the main area's of Poole. We had room 8 which was great with a stand alone bath and huge bed. Breakfast was very good and service was... More

Beautiful room - great decor and immaculately clean; friendly and helpful staff; huge selection of breakfast choices from eggs Benedict, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or full English to kippers, all perfectly cooked, hot and swiftly served. Great location - great place to stay!

OMG the staff here are amazing!!! There's is nothing that they can't so for you! I'm from Poole so find it odd staying in hotels there but if I have to recommend anywhere this is it! And the lady that's done breakfast there for years deserves a medal she is just sooooo lovely!

My Fiancé & I arrived late Sunday afternoon recently. The reception staff were very pleasant & informed us of the car park opposite. The room was not very nice at all. We had to share the room with four large black house flies. Despite opening the rickety sash window and inviting them to leave they were obviously enjoying the room... More

It's possible that I was upgraded from the "single" that I booked, but the room was reasonably-sized, clean and well-appointed (except for lack of air-con - be prepared to open the window in summer, which may allow noise in the evening). Bathroom was nice with a big strong showerhead - once you work out how to use it. The outer... More

The Antelope hotel was great. Four of us stayed for Saturday night and, were all most impressed by the quality of the decor, the service and the breakfast. The decor was all updated about 1yr ago - room 8 (Superior Double) was gorgeous with a huge bed; a brand new sofa bed and a mini chaise longue. There was a... More

Stay was 26-27 Sept 2014. Staff friendly enough, but general maintenance lacking, e.g. windows and guttering in need of cleaning. Parking is a problem, but can be worked out if one is flexible. Why can't email addresses be found? I can't get in touch to recover an item left in my room. "Free" Cloud Wi-Fi did not work for any... More
