We ariived at this hotel late at night due to a late ferry so did not get there until after 11.00pm, but were met by a member of staff who quickly registered us. Our room was very nice with ample space and a very nice bathroom. The room itself had 2 beds and two armchairs so we were able to... More

We spent one night here with the dog, nice reception and friendly staff that was more than happy to help with the needs of are dog (which isn't small) by laying out water in the bar and when we ordered food he was treated to so biscuits brought over by the waitress, the room was a decent size and spotless...

We've just spent two days at the hotel and found it to be a very disappointing experience. The hotel is in a fantastic position, the views are exceptional but I'm afraid that is the good bit. Overall the hotel is run down, there clearly has been little investment in recent years. We found our room to be unwelcoming and obvious... More

Salterns Harbourside Hotel is a nearly but not quite a very good hotel. I agree with other reviewers that the location is fantastic and the staff very friendly. I think that we were lucky that there wasn't a wedding on during our stay as I can imagine that it would be fairly noisy as the sound insulation in the rooms... More

If you are traveling down to Sandbanks or the Poole area then this is a good place for a warm welcome. After spending a quite few weekends here and getting to know the area very well this is well tucked away from the main road. The rooms are a good size some with views over the Harbour and surrounding coutryside.... More

Stayed for one night attending a private function. Position is lovely, staff very good, private function was excellent. Room a little dated and we had an issue with the en suite with a vent banging whenever you opened the door. Breakfast was good. Reception staff on check out were not brilliant, seemed totally disinterested but the rest of the staff... More

Good value for money food - very good view from the restaurant - easy to find. Would visit again - varied menu. Good service. Very quiet out of season. Good for holidays but also booked for by local residents

We love this hotel - lovely friendly staff, great location and they allow dogs in rooms and the bar...all very good indeed. The bar is frequented by locals and the food is excellent. Breakfast is excellent - local produce. Can't rate it more highly
