We stayed here for a weekend. The staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. The hotel is small but the bar and restaurant were friendly and good quality. Breakfast was cooked to order the first morning and a buffet the second - we had no complaints about either. The rooms were fairly spacious and well equipped - perhaps a bit tired in places but nothing at all serious. Would recommend this as a place to stay in Poole which is a great place for a weekend trip.

The hotel is situated directly on the harbour & is the perfect base for exploring Poole & the Dorset coast. The sea view from room 212 was lovely. The room was comfortable, nicely appointed & very clean. The staff were excellent & very helpful. Breakfast in the dining room overlooking the harbour was excellent, too.

Highly recommended.

Having stayed in another hotel in Poole the night before, this was 100% better.

Every one of the staff were friendly and took an interest in you.

Rooms/beds were very comfortable.

Dinner was very good and breakfast excellent.

On the down side, dont think you sould pay for car park if staying in the hotel!

Had to book for the whole family to have a base for visiting a relative in Poole hospital. A very big thank you to Dayna for organising this. The hotel is very clean and comfortable, all the staff have been very helpful and friendly. The view from our room 214 is stunning had to sleep with the curtains open most nights as I did not want to spoil that view. The breakfast was lovely and caters for all. Under different circumstances this would have been a lovely relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, top floor.

Just returned from fantastic trip at Thistle Hotel in Poole. The Reception staff gave us a warm welcome and we were delighted to hear we had been upgarded to Sea view room. The room was generous in size with all the standard equipment you expect. The Bar was well stocked always a treat to have a decent glass of Drambuie after a great day walking around the fantastic coast line to Bournemouth. We booked in for Dinner, stunning views across the Harbour. Menu choice was balanced, a choice of Two menu's and the food we eat, was well presented by great warm staff and very reasonable priced.

Sdaly lots of banging doors throughout the night which was disappointing. However it didnt detract from excellent stay. Great tasty breakfast although the service was a little slow. The staff looked very stressed and although pleasant you could sense the tension in the air !!

We would be delighted to stay at the Hotel again.

Room Tip: Room 206 overlooked the Harbour.
