“Good location, helpful staff”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We decided to go to Poole by train, took around 20 minutes to walk to the Hotel. Reception staff were helpful and the room was ok for the price we paid. We used the bar and also had a meal both were vey good. Restaurant well laid out with some character. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice.

Room Tip: Away from the main street

The hotel has just had a refurb and it looks great! The staff are really enthusiastic about the new place and are obviously working very hard to make it work - they were all very cheerful and polite, and seemed to enjoy working together. Dinner in the evening was really nice - we had tapas the first night and I had the pork belly the second night - lovely! The room was fantastic for thr price, very clean (overlooked a takeaway but they can't really control the local businesses around them, can they?!) Breakfast in the morning was lovely in the morning as well. Can't reccommend it enough :-)

We had a weekend break here and, whilst understanding that they were just reopening after a refit, we experienced no problems. The staff were polite and helpful although being under great pressure due to the teething problems. The restaurant was clean and comfortable with a large selection both at breakfast and dinner. The bar was at the front of the hotel and there was no need to go into this area, which was very popular, as we didn't use this facility. Our room overlooked the garden and was not noisy. The hotel is very well positioned, close to the quay and within walking distance of the large Dolphin Shopping Centre although this has it's own multi-storey car park. We travelled 14th to 16th November

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which was a spacious twin. The rooms towards the front of the hotel appear to h...
