4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very nice family-run traditional hotel. We stayed one night in the family suite which sleeps four and has two en-suite bathrooms. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The hot breakfast was cooked to order rather than pre-cooked and kept warm in the way that larger hotels do. Great value for money.

My girlfriend has been staying here for many years and recommended this hotel to me for an overnight visit as it was located perfectly for my needs. I found the owner and staff extremely helpful and the room clean, cosy, and exactly what I needed. The bar was lovely and very traditional. I enjoyed my stay here a lot and... More

This hotel proved a little difficult to find as it is located on a very busy gyratory traffic ilsand in poole. Booking from the internet we envisage a hotel perhaps overlooking the harbour but overlooked the main road albeit the local park was next door with easy access. The room itself was quite large and offered the general amenities, however... More

First impression was the receptionist who did not make us feel welcome. Shown rooms had to walk past a door which was open showing gentleman urinals. In the hallway it smelt very musky. Parents room had to locate a plug behind bedside cabinet which revealed loads of dirt. Cobwebs on the wall lights. Towels which must be at least 10... More

Thank you for your review even though its not true. When booking in your first question was could you have a table in the bar for playing cards and supply and consume your own drinks. We did explain to you that we were more than happy to put a card table in the bar but we did not allow customers... More

A really welcoming, comfortable and interesting hotel. We really enjoyed our stay with them. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable, and the rooms are quiet. The bathrooms are clean, if a little small but that's not a problem. The rest of the hotel is clean and kept interesting with plenty of art on the walls. The staff are... More

Firstly if you decide to book this hotel ring the hotel for a price before you book as booking.com was more expensive and don't believe booking.com when they say only one room left because when we stayed the hotel was under occupied massively. Breakfast was basic but ok not a lot of choice compared to other hotels and the staff... More

Our price for the night you stayed was £21.00 cheaper than travel lodge and thats not including the Full English breakfast included. We... More

One night stop over in a room that smelled as if it hadn't been aired out in a while. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. You had to be a contortionist to move around. Talk about granny decor! Staff on arrival not overly helpful. Would NEVER stay here again. Way overpriced.

Very warm and efficient welcome. We chose to upgrade to a downstair's room, which had everything we could possibly have wanted. The bathroom was a trfle 'bijou' but had a a very welcome walk in shower. We had a lovely meal, beautifully cooked overlooking the terraced courtyard, overflowing with flowers, really pretty. A full breakfast was included in the pricewe... More
