We stayed for a long weekend here which didn't start too well. The first room we were checked into was very cramped, dark and the window was frosted which made it very claustrophobic. However the staff were accommodating and we were given a much larger room overlooking the carpark. However this room was noisy what with staff leaving in the late hours and delivery lorries at 5 and 6am. Our final room was at the back of the hotel, which was comfortable and quiet. Unfortunately I didn't find the hotel communal toilets very clean, but the rest of the facilities were. The spa pool was great and there is an outdoor heated swimming pool - which is usable in the winter too. The restaurant food was very good as was the service. The location is great - especially if you want to explore the purbeck peninsula. If you have bikes with you, there is a place you can get them locked away in. In the hotel itself has plenty of comfortable areas to sit and admire the views of the harbour. If you're looking for evening entertainment outside the hotel, then you'd be looking at a 15min drive to Poole or 20min drive to Bournemouth, however there are a couple of restaurants a 5 min drive in Canford Cliffs. Despite our problems with the rooms, I would still recommend a stay.
