I have previously stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding and I loved it so rebooked again for last Saturday and it is still fantastic I definitely recommend it
location friendliness of staff
Excellent breakfast but ni winter thé room is cold
Easy, friendly, comfortable, good value...
Squeaky bed, smelly toilet.
This is our second visit and amused to be given the same room! - only to discover that it is the only twin room at the Antelope. We are 'not so young' sisters who live opposite sides of the country, dependent on public transport and only manage to meet up at Christmas whilst visiting our aged Father in Ringwood. It is lovely to catch up and take a couple of days for ourselves and the location of the Antelope in Poole is perfect if you have no car, especially if the weather is not so good. With friendly bar, restaurant and TV in room and easy walking distance to numerous pubs, bars, restaurants, museum, shops, frequent bus links and gentle walks we had everything we needed.
Can't fault it really as it suited our needs, except to say our room lacks sufficient hanging and drawer space. No fault of the Antelope due to the season, but would have loved to have included a few of the boat trips (not running) to explore the surrounding area.
Excellent breakfast as in other Olde English Inns. Good value family room. Great location
Decor looking a bit tired and slightly shabby in places. Would have preferred a double and two singles in the family room rather than a sofa bed and 2 singles.
Very relaxed, only spent one night but enjoyed it very much
Warm and friendly atmosphere with tasteful decor throughout
Bathroom was not acceptable. Cobwebs hanging from light. Black mould on ceiling and down side of bath. Inside of bath all chipped. Floor in bathroom moved when you walked. Wall under window cracked and marked. Would not return.
Perfect for exploring as on high street but away from hustle and bustle as in old town.
Bathroom needs refurbishing
Excellent location, pleasant staff, good food and generally a very pleasant atmosphere.
Very small and cramped bedroom, bed was not made in the morning just pulled back. Bathroom was ok but in need of a revamp in view of the damp and dirty patches on side of bath and the extractor unit.Parking was good but not sign posted and difficult to find.
a bit like a rabbit warren. if at the front it can be noisy
Friendly atmosphere open log fire
found room quite cold at times
Location is great to explore Poole town centre and the Quay Friendly staff, especially the lady at breakfast! Comfortable rooms, clean with good facilities, although one room only had a bath. Free parking across the street is a bonus. Outdoor seating with heaters. Olde worlde charm !
all staff a credit to the hotel
Would have liked access to the restaurant which had been hired out for a private function in the evening . Ate our meal in the bar
This was the 3rd visit for us to the Antelope. We always go back simply because the atmosphere is very welcoming and the staff are excellent
Have stayed here before and always find it clean and comfortable . Well kept beer and pleasant staff .
Stale bread with the prawn cocktail and cold wraps with the fajitas .I don't like this self service system of ordering food at the bar , when your charging restaurant prices come and take my bloody order ! Please use fresh oil when cooking the breakfast , my fried egg tasted of last nights cod and chips Oh and the flush in the toilet of room 14 needs fixing
Allocated Parking which is normally tough in that location. Easy check-out so I could just get up and leave in morning.
The whole experience
Everything and its location, parking was good too.. Breakfast was lovely, money well spent. will definitely be back next year.
my friend struggled with the stairs.
Location - middle of the town Atmosphere - relaxed and welcoming Decor and Christmas decorations Breakfast was very nice
I liked it all
I found my stay was extremely comfortable. Excellent menu. Great location for Poole Harbour.
The convenient location .
The woman on reception when we arrived and the following morning was not at all friendly .
The bed was so comfortable.
