We were lucky to find this family friendly hotel who were very willing to serve cream teas to non-residents, (unlike the nearby Pig on the Beach Hotel who turned us away.) And it turned out to be one of the best cream teas we have enjoyed. We are now tempted to book a holiday here.

I stayed two nights and it was all very satisfactory, apart from a slight smell of stale food around the dining room, and some parts of the hotel looking a bit tired. The staff were numerous, young, mostly foreign, and all very keen to please, so service was excellent and very friendly, and most of the other guests were as... More

We decided to visit this hotel for a night last weekend. It is set in beautiful surroundings overlooking Studland Bay. The immediate impression of being welcomed was set up the receptionist and then the porter who carried our bags to our room. We had taken our grandson aged 8 with us and he had an upstairs room to our double... More

We stayed at the hotel to be close to Studland Bay for an event, and it was by far the most convenient location, with a very pleasant walk down to the beach. We were given a large room in a great location with two large balconies offering excellent sea views. The bathroom was relatively new and fresh although the room... More

Our family has been to Knoll House several times, and will keep returning. The reason? It is simply streets ahead of other hotels when it comes to catering for children. We have a toddler son, and we have stayed in numerous hotels with him. Every time we always say: 'if only we were at Knoll House ...' They have unbelievably... More

Knoll House was the venue I chose for a family get together- ranging from 66 to 2 years of age, to celebrate my wife's birthday, last weekend. It proved to be an absolutely perfect location. The setting, overlooking Studland Bay towards the Isle of Wight, is spectacular, and only 500m from the beach. The rooms, though not large, were comfortable... More

We have been before, so we knew and understand the 'deal'. The deal is this, the location is first class, you are two minutes from one of finest beaches the UK has to offer. The hotel itself is full of quirks, slightly mad in places, and wonderful in others. The staff are helpful, and friendly. The food is slightly caught... More

My first visit with family members, some of which have been coming here every year for 40+ years and I can understand why. Such a comfortable atmosphere and excellent for families with children and dogs. Very good leisure facilities and so many possibilities for walks. Splendid views from the front of the hotel. I've always been one for smaller family... More

I had not known what to expect so was blown away by the charming, friendly and delightful service from everybody. The rooms are bright, clean and large with comfortable beds. There were no tea facilities in the rooms but they were available downstairs 24/7 - you could go there in a dressing gown if you so desired, no one would... More

Great family hotel which is set up with kids in mind. However the pricing is, in my mind, a little steep and the look and feel is a slightly old school, but I guess that is half the charm. Didn't stay long enough to really settle in, but hope to return soon. to try again.
