Well, after we got over the initial shock, and it was a shock - this is not what you would expect of a hotel, more a large bed and breakfast.
The hotel is very dated, and not in a good way. It is very lived in.
The staff were very friendly, the 'restaurant' was OK, the food was OK. Ramsy's bar was OK...it looks a little aggressive when you first walk in as it is used by locals, but, once you are over that it is fine. There were only two bitters on hand not the masses I was expecting.
Location wise it is fantastic, Pavilion Gardens across the road, Poole's Cavern 15minutes walk, restaurants and the town centre 5minutes walk.
I suppose the acid test is, would I go back again? Short answer is no.
Pleasant place but it is not a hotel for me, not in this day and age.
