We have visited The Antelope on previous occasions and as usual this was a very nice stay (13/14 Feb). Most of the staff are outgoing and professional especially the manager who couldn't do enough for all the guests. He seemed to always be on hand throughout our stay at the reception, in the bar and also the restaurant where we... More

Being a local I have heard great things about this place, and it looked great from the outside. However it was to our disappointment when we arrived to an awkward atmosphere not knowing where to sit and not being greeted. When we seated ourselves we realised there wasn't going to be any service so paid upfront at the bar for... More

After spending last Saturday enjoying the local environment, we went to check in, at around 5, for a family room we had booked at The Antelope. After checking in, as the receptionist handed over the key she informed us that there was a party going on in The Antelope that evening and that there would be music but it would... More

We are very big fans of Old English Inns and regularly take advantage of their bargain winter b&b rates. This was our first visit to The Antelope but it will not be our last. The location is very good, just a couple of minutes walk to the quay, and the hotel is attractive with very welcoming and efficient, friendly staff.... More

They offered a lovely new year party with 3 course meal which was well organised and good fun. Would recommend this hotel... More

Me and my husband stayed only for one night in Antelope hotel. We had an important dinner date later the same day we checked in and needed a shower before going out after a long day of travelling but the water was cold. After some enquiry from reception we found out the boiler was broken and they were working to... More

We stayed for a week over the Christmas period and the food was fantastic and the staff really friendly - nothing was too much trouble for them. It is an old inn so the plumbing and shower were interesting at times but the room was very large, spotless clean and comfortable. As stated in other reviews there is limited parking... More

Visited this Bar/Restaurant/Hotel during a Christmas period. Food is excellent, staff friendly and helpful and dog friendly. Next time I visit Poole I would definitely visit again and book accommodation here.
