Stayed here on business recently for 1 night, which included a conference as well. My room was an excellent sea view room, comfortable, light, and a great sea view. The staff were superb. From the reception to night porter, they were all polite and friendly, and all a credit to the hotel. When ever in Poole again, I will definitely... More

We had a wonderful sea view for our two night stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good and location between Poole and Bournemouth was just right for us. We will be happy to return.

We enjoyed our stay and particularly the location but did think the hotel itself a bit plain and basic for the money were we paying. The staff were very welcoming and attentive and the view from our room great (if rather noisy from the aircon units below). The room was spacious and comfortable but rather uninspiring - could have done... More

Just back from a lovely, last minute get away weekend where we just had one night to stay but we packed in plenty of doggy walks on the beach & some great food too. We were offered a 3rd floor room which had lovely port views (but we were told there was no lift at booking) but we opted for... More

Stayed here for one night with a Wowcher code. Had a wonderful harbour view. Room was large roomy and clean. Reception staff were helpful. The area is being built upon so there's lots of traffic up and down but its worth a look at the development going on as the surrounding houses are beautiful. Don't expect a 5 minute walk... More

The harbourside hotel was indeed facing Poole harbour and Sandbanks. We went through Groupon, although the hotel thought we had booked through Expedia. It is a superb location, with ample free car parking. We ended up in a huge room facing the sea with a four poster, which was a bit of a surprise. We had a separate bath and... More
