I have visited the Salterns bar and restaurant over several years and always enjoyed the food and view. However on a visit today with my mum, who now uses a wheelchair, I was astonished to find no accessible toilet. When I asked at reception they just pointed to the usual toilets. However, the only adjustment to one (of 3) of... More

Stayed here on business mid week. Room OK but tired and dated. Room view was good on the whole overlooking the sea. Bar was deadly. My colleagues both had the Lamb mint burger the night before and thought it was rank so we went out the following night. In the summer it might be OK overlooking the harbour but in... More

We purchased a "Living social" voucher for £18 which included a sea food platter & dessert for two people. The platter of food was enormous & very well presented. All the food was homemade & very good quality. The only way the meal could have been improved was by introducing colour on to the platter in the form of some... More

The hotel is right at the end of a little road to the sailing club and then overlooks Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island. It is the location which makes the hotel special. The rooms and bathrooms are always clean but the bathrooms in particular could do with updating. Bar and restuarant both over look the harbour Breakfast is fine and... More

Like some of the previous reviewers, we went to Salterns using a Groupon voucher for a Fillet steak/chips/salad deal. Whilst the portions were just about acceptable, they certainly weren't generous (except for the watercress which was in abundance). On the positive side, the steak did taste nice as were the chips. We had a starter and a glass of wine... More

I stayed here for one night during business travel. The location is beautiful and has a great view across the harbour . The staff were very helpful and the rooms where clean but in need of a revamp. Food was average and I take that into account as the hotel was not that busy and December not really being the... More

We have stayed at Saltern's a number of times and always had a great experience. If you can get a room with a view all the better, but all the rooms we have stayed in have been clean, fresh, and very comfortable. The breakfasts have always been delicious and the luncheons in the bar area very tasty. In the summer... More

The Hotel is located on the harbour side however on a rainy October day you may as well be at Grimsby fish docks The Hotel may have seen better days however I doubt it and over the years it have been allowed to deteriorate somewhat My room overlooked the harbour which on a sunny day might have been a bonus....

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in November. Our room was very nice, with an amazing view over the harbour, although the decor could do with an upgrade the room was very clean, and we did appreciate there being fresh bottled water supplied every day. The bathroom had shower gels & lotions which was a nice touch. The only... More
