We stopped for three nights toward the end of a three week driving vacation in the UK. We were looking for something near the sea; Salterns was a perfect choice. The room was huge, good bathroom, very comfortable beds, excellent and hearty breakfast choices. Staff were all wonderful. Area is filled with things to do. A great stay

Called here on journey home as they were showing availability on a booking web site, on arrival we were upgraded to harbour facing room for the same price, the service received from Karrie was outstanding and i must say all the staff were a credit to the hotel, breakfast was cooked fresh and not a buffet style, all in all...

Very pleasant spot to have a drink and/or bistro style meal in the afternoon. Overlooks a marina. Family friendly so beware kids running around. Reasonable menu but it's a big place so don't expect anything special. Would have expected more fish dishes given that it's in Poole...

A very dated hotel on the edge of the seafront that had been used as a military base in WW11. The good things; convenient for Poole and Sandbanks, easy to park, great waterfront location, rooms were a good size and staff were very helpful producing breakfast before 8.30 on a Sunday and the noise from the wedding disco couldn't be...

The location was great with stunning views across the harbour to Brownsie island and over the boats docked in the mornings, a lovely patio and garden seating area fabulous. The inside of the hotel was clean, bright and well maintained. The reception was manned by a sweet young lady who inform us even though we had paid before we arrived... More

If you are a boating man this is the place to stay ! Set in the middle of the marina , with views of Poole harbour, the surrounding country side and the sea shore and somewhere to moor your boat, if you can get in ! This is a very buzzy hotel with a great bar and staff full of... More

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.
