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

This is the second time we have stayed at the Quaterdeck, it was definitely as brilliant as I remembered! We ended up having to travel with our young puppy (I was quite apprehensive about this) and I would like to share my appreciation to all the staff for making his first overnight stay so manageable! The staff went above and... More

Stayed here for the weekend, we were given the superior room with views of the park - if you looked through the trees you could just see the park! We had a big bay window which unfortunately opened out over the patio/smoking area, and being non smokers ourselves on some occasions the smell was awful. Room was pleasant and large... More

We chose to stay here for one night each on our way to and from the Channel Island Ferry. We had no car, and it wasn't as convenient as we had hoped. But we spent comfortable nights in an OK room. But our overall impression was that (apart from the excellent free wifi) the whole place had changed very little... More

Stayed for one night. Nice homely feel to the hotel. Lovely clean well maintained room and welcoming helpful staff. Check in was 2pm and check out 10.30am. Would definitely stay again. Superb location for the Sandbanks area, Swanage ferry and Poole.

I stayed in this hotel for one night during a business trip. Room was small but comfortable. Small basic bathroom, very clean. Colorful, cosy style of decoration which gives a warm feeling. Had an excellent breakfast (I actually enjoyed the black pudding) in a room at the back close to the public park with squirrels and other birds as companions.... More

This is a family run B&B. The owner is a friendly and helpful host. I stayed for five nights whist preparing for and attending a sailing regatta at Parkstone Yacht Club. My room was very small and the bathroom only had a bath with a hand held shower attachment with minuscule water pressure, which was disappointing. Towels, plastic glasses were... More

My husband and I with my brother and his wife recently enjoyed a lovely long weekend at this Quaint and Family Run Hotel.
