We stayed for 3 nights with our dog and it turned out to be a great choice. The room was spotlessly clean and plenty of space for us and the our dog. The park is literally 30 paces away and great for an early morning walk before breakfast. The chioce for breakfast was excellent and we also had a evening... More

A very friendly Hotel & the staff cannot do enough to help. Just a short taxi ride from the main shopping area, plenty of parking onsite. Very quiet location next to the park, rooms are more than adequate for a business stay or while exploring the surrounding area. The real highlight is the food 'boy can this man cook'!!!

This is a friendly hotel, but the rooms are very dated. Comfortable but feels tired unfortunately. It's very handy for the council offices and the stunning Poole park, but some way from the Quay area where restaurants etc are. It's also a £6 cab ride from the station if you come by train, but good parking if you drive. Lovely... More

It's not the most modern of buildings, but it's nice and homely. The owner is a really nice bloke and is friendly and chatty, as are his family. Even the pooch is nice! Chelsea persevered until she managed to get my boarding passes printed (it was a BTmail update that caused the problem - not me; honest!) and we found... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and delighted with every aspect. A wonderful greeting after a long journey by Chelsea and nothing to fault from there after. Will be back in 2 months on our way back to Switzerland

Its not the staffs fault and they have no knowledge of the 6 hour drive I have just endured, but a smile on arrival goes a long way. There wasn't any smiles to be seen. Perhaps it was the knowledge that the girl on reception had, and she was embarrassed about the room they had for me. I paid £89... More

From a last minute booking this hotel has turned out to be a pretty good find. Comfortable and warm room with every expected creature comfort. The room was very clean and checked and cleaned daily. The owner and staff enhanced the stay with a natural warmth and easiness in approach, nothing was out of their way and they were attentive... More

We spent the week end at the Quarterdeck in Poole. Hotel a bit weathered although staff helpful and well positioned. Poole Park is next to hotel so it was a super walk to Poole harbour (30 mins). Sandbanks is a bit further probably 3 miles although part was a coastal walk. A little bit price at £100+ per night! the... More

As titled is it obvious I found this hotel wanting. This is mainly due to an awfull nights sleeps I sufferd by the high temperatures of the room, with no air conditioning and the windows providing little to alleviate the problem. Futhermore its worth mentioning theres a verity of other problems ranging from a tempremental television that would just pack... More
