We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from 26 October. This included the night of the great storm. The best thing about the hotel is it's location right on Poole Harbour and just a short walk from the town centre.
We had a basic room that was perfectly adequate for our short stay, the decor, facilities and bathroom were fine. We ate in the hotel on 2 nights and the menu was sufficient but on one night the service was a bit slow. The views from the dining room would be hard to better and this makes breakfast quite an event.
We found Poole itself a little disappointing with the pedestrian only High Street crammed full of charity shops, we didn't venture into the shopping mall because that is not we went away for.
If you are looking to stay in Poole then you would be hard pressed to find better than the Thistle.
