Popped into this hotel to review for a large family Christmas venue. Thought would be lovely to all get together. Driven passed for 48 years so decided to stop. Always thought it looked lovely from the road however whilst the decor is traditional and chic the staff need a training session in customer service. The reception service and bar service... More

Having been "double booked" and badly let down by The Bankes Arms in Studland, we arrived at The Knoll House Hotel, with dog, desperate for somewhere to stay at short notice. We couldn't have been more happy to be greeted by a very Helpful and friendly receptionist who was only too happy to give us one of their best rooms... More

We have now stayed in this family hotel 5 times in different configurations. It never disappoints - it is safe, the pool is sparkling with free towels - the food is perfect. However, if you want TV in your room rather than a radio or nighttime entertainment you had better go elsewhere. Enjoy the beach - beach huts available from... More

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children and stayed at the Knoll House Hotel for 3 nights on a half-board basis. We were attracted by the location (so many things to see and do nearby) and also the family-friendly facilities including childrens' dining room, heated swimming pool, on-site playground and baby listening/monitoring service during dinner. The staff... More

We have just come back from a night away at Knoll House. This hotel has not changed since coming as young children (and from parents coming as young children) but that is what makes this hotel so perfect, its timeless. The location is one you can not beat, The fact your dog can stay and have a delicious evening meal... More

This hotel is everything you would expect from a traditional seaside hotel with good accommodation, excellent rooms, views over the sea and a complement of staff to meet every need, including children and our canine friends. Because of the provision of good quality meals and attentive staff in the dining room there is an expectation that you will spend the... More

Recommended by good friends. This is a great hotel for kids or even a break without them. Studland Bay is fantastic and within walking distance. Staff are great. Very comfortable rooms with all you need. Excellent pubs close by.
