Just returned from a 3 night stay and, sad to say, was very disappointed by the overall standard of the hotel. Firstly, the rooms had very poor air conditioning which meant they were always very warm. We stayed on a weekend which wasn't particularly hot outside either. We were reluctant to open the windows because a) there was a sign... More

Hired the riverside suite for my husbands 50th, I would have given it 5 stars but for one small detail I wish there was a 4 and a half button, thank you to Phil the manager for being helpful, Megan so much for her amazing manner and helping my daughter blow up so many balloons, Andrew barman/night porter for all...

Only one night booked at short notice for a business trip. A bit tricky to find round the diversion for the bridge repairs but well worth the effort. Slight issue with traffic noise (I did ask for a room away from the road when booking but presume they were all booked) was more than offset by friendly staff, good food... More

Just a quick overnight stay at the Bridge House Hotel. Everything was completely satisfying, however, I didn't like the fact that the windows to the rooms at the front of the hotel had no covering, of either blinds or nets, and it was on a main road. I appreciate that passengers in cars probably couldn't see in but people walking... More

We needed somewhere to stay for a big event in Poole. The Tripadvisor rating and user descriptions suggested this would be a good choice and so it turned out. I had realised that rooms NOT facing the road were essential, and that is what we got. The view was deliciously verdant and English green, no noise from the road. The... More
