Nice friendly staff and top quality food. Rooms were of a good standard and were as described.
In fairness we knew what we were booking, so all was good. I would say that if somebody wants a extra quiet night then this is not the place for you.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the whole day until evening meal. Dinner was also excellent. Staff very friendly.
There should be a warning on one of the doors as you find the way through to the bar. There is a step behind it and nothing on the door telling you, I had a bit of a fall in the hallway because of lack of warning.
Good selection of cask beers
no heating,room very Cold. menu needs to be looked at.
A surprisingly luxurious room for a pub. We would definitely return and stay here again.
Staff, Location and facilities good
No shower, room a little cold at times, wifi off and on depending where you were
The evening meal was good but bar/dining room very noisy.
The beds were very hard, no shower curtain or grab rails to help getting into bath. All night long a loud mechanical grinding noise sounded every 15 mins for several minutes completely disturbing sleep. Bottled filtered water costing £1.80 for 350ml smelt of chlorine when boiled to make a cup of tea.
Friendly, welcoming staff. Clean, large room
The nearby clock tower that struck on the hour throughout the night and woke me up every hour! Not the hotels fault obviously but, did stop me having a good nights sleep!
bed good and comfy
breakfast not as advertised
Large comfortable and clean room. Good food and good selwction of real ales.
It would have been nice to have a shower fitted but I understand that this is being addressed apparently due to poor water pressure
breakfast good bar staff natilie very helpful
dinner burnt sausage burnt not enough parking wifi only in bar not in rooms no shower only bath poor finish in bathroom dusty in bar very under staffed I could carry on but I wont there must be better out there, rooms noisy church bells right on road people walking past drunk
Spotless. Very nice bedroom but didn't like the mixer taps in the shower/bath but just a personal preference. Nice staff and excellent breakfast. Limited parking but free parking nearby. Good position for pubs/restaurants.
The staff were brilliant and could not do enough to help us. We had a large comfortable room. Food was excellent and portions were very generous.
Parking is right outside pub and on crossroads but we managed. We stayed on a Friday night and the youngsters were very noisy on the road outside.Twice during the night we were woken with them shouting and swearing but this is no fault of the proprieters and an unusual occurrence we understand
The decor is very good, and the whole place appears newly decorated. Nice bar in the pub for a quiet drink. We had the family room, which is actually two good sized bed rooms with an en-suite in the adjoining lobby. Staff were all friendly. Dined there one night and the choice and food was excellent - we wished we had eaten there the night before. Be wary of the Traditional English breakfast - its more like man v food - but as its so good we managed to eat it all.
the room and furnishings, the breakfast the location (all local shops and quayside within an easy walking distance. The staff.The bathroom. Easy parking immediately in front of the hotel.
hot water pressure it took a while to fill the bath. Our room (number 10) window opened on to the courtyard and we could hear the exhaust from the flue of the boiler admittedly the window was open as we were enjoying warm evenings
the waitress for breakfast was very friendly and very apologetic about the food options
not enough lighting in the room, room was drafty, door didn't close properly, light switch fell off, bathroom smelt musty, lack of good choice for breakfast ( they had no plain porridge!) bread for toast was stale, not enough parking for the hotel
Excellent rooms, friendly helpful staff, good bar choice .
Nothing really, I ate elsewhere. The menu looks a bit more "cohesive" than when I last stayed
Family room layout - 2 rooms with bathroom was great! Fabulous breakfast
Windows closed on arrival - not great on a boiling hot day and the rooms were on the top floor Windows were very small so didn't let much air in
Quiet rooms Free WiFi Brilliant Breakfast
Location, Quiet Room, Large room, Looked like the beer range was good,
No shower, Room smelled a bit damp, Toaster set the fire alarm off.
Hearty breakfast, nice choice of water tea coffee and biscuits in room. Good to have family facilities with separate rooms. Welcoming staff.
A little pricey given the bathroom and carpeting on stairs and in room rather dated.
No shower screen .. Handheld shower ..very bad lighting, damp on the walls
As good as always, we've been going a few years now and the excellent standards have been maintained.
The service and friendliness of staff from start made you feel at home and the food was excellent quality
A nice traditional but modern hotel full of life in a very attractive area of Wareham.
We had a room in an adjacent building which was very basic and airless. The windows were painted shut, the floors were carpeted and the bathroom had no shower and a bath with a hand shower and no shower curtain. The combination of warm weather and damp left the room with an unpleasant smell and no way of airing it out. A fan was not available. This room was accessible form the main hotel, but the easiest entrance was from a passage off the street. This area was not kept weeded or swept. I will say that the main hotel rooms may be fine.
Fab location for touring. Lovely town with river trips and local walks. The staff were lovely and very obliging with all of our requests, especially Mariola and Beth!
A bit overpriced for the facilities available. Only a hand shower in the bath which is not acceptable in 2014 when paying £115 a night for a room.
