Don't know why I've had so much trouble posting this review, since we stayed in March of this year. Maybe there is a conspiracy not to let too many people know what a great place this is, thereby reserving it as a well kept secret for those who know. We stumbled in as refugees from a nearby hotel, which hadn't passed muster, to be warmly greeted by front of house manager, Paul, who was fabulous throughout our stay. He found us a fantastic room with a large balcony and a great view of Poole harbour. We also had a flexible and favourable DBB rate. We usually like to eat out quite a bit but the food was so good that the one night we did eat out, we wished we had stayed in. The restaurant was professionally managed to an exceptionally high standard, with service being at the same time attentive but unobtrusive. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and also the wine list, which catered for a range of taste and price range. Hubby doesn't usually go a bundle on breakfast, but this was a joy. The pancakes were especially good. The restaurant, lounge bar and terrace outside overlook the bay and we had the added bonus of march sunshine, which the outside sun trap enabled us to make the most of. The area is quite the nicest in Poole, I think and an added advantage was that we were able to use our hotel card to also sample the Sandbanks and Haven hotels, part of the select fjb chain, on the sandbanks peninsular; both lovely places to chill out. The rooms were clean, decor stylish, and the staff were unfailingly helpful hosts. This was a most relaxing stay and shouldn't be so hard to post a review about. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it without hesitation.
