I'd never actually heard of Hamilton Hall but my boyfriend had and as he had to be near Poole for a few days and we wanted a weekend away we decided to stay here. On arrival we immediately felt very welcome and were shown to our beautifully decorated room (tranquility) and then given a tour around the hotel and introduced... More

Thanks for such a lovely review. It is always very pleasing when people ' get what we are about' and feel it as soon as they enter. With so many faceless corporate chain hotels available these days and often at very reasonable prices that sometimes we cannot compete with, the total lack of personality and warmth, interaction between guests and...

I've been coming here for many years and John's energy never fails to astonish me. I always get out what I put into a stay at Hamilton Hall. It is a two way thing staying here so let yourself go with the flow and enjoy the humanity in all its eccentricity and people who know John know it comes in... More

It is such a compliment when told that as you were in recoverty from surgery the one place you knew you would be well looked after and how it would aid a speedy recovery was to come and stay at Hamilton Hall again. We missed a sing song this time... maybe next time. Get well soon and thanks again. More

Arrived on Sunday to a very warm welcome from John and I felt at home within minutes. Was shown to my room (Dorm) which was spotless and very inviting. The whole 2 days I was there was very relaxing and the meals were excellent and the interaction with other guests was great. If your think of going and feel unsure... More

The Dorm Room is actually one of the most popular rooms and we hear peels of laughter coming from this room... where strangers share and becone friends real fast. I do hope you will come again and we can share a laugh again. More

I've just had a wonderful 10 day stay at Hamilton Hall and yet again, it has totally rejuvenated my body, my mind and my soul. The facilities and welcome that you receive here are second to none; as is the sage-like advise and love from its genial host, John.

I always say that Hamilton Hall offers Sexual, Self and Spiritual Development for Mind, Body and Soul of Men, and offers a very different approach to what is usually expected from a men only hotel, and Hamilton Hall really is one of a kind. With lovely people like Rick staying;- and with so many other kind and thoughtful guests, this... More

You can see how John has plowed his heart and soul into making this place something a little different. I have visited a few times now and it doesn't feel like a hotel, feels more like you are stopping with family. John makes you feel so at home from the moment you arrive. He is an amazing host and has... More

Thanks for this wonderful review. So glad when people understand what we offer here and how different we are. With the summer being somewhat changeable weather wise, it is so good when guests enjoy staying in the hotel and using the garden, chill out rooms and not feel they are missing out as the sun is not shining. There is... More

Have been meaning to visit Hamilton Hall for some time now, and finally got the chance although only for a couple of nights. Straight away John and the establishment make you feel relaxed and welcome. Our room, (as was the whole place) was spotlessly clean, very relaxing and welcoming. The attention to detail is amazing.

I stayed recently for a few all-too-short days and nights at Hamilton Hall and enjoyed every minute.

Always so good to once again know that what we offer here at Hamilton Hall is well received. Having recently refurbished the Community Room and always re doing, re furnishing, re painting and re newing - costs a huge amount of money and when we get such good reviews like this, it makes it all worth while. Big thanks. More
