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.
Nice atmosphere and location.
Heater was not working one day.
Very nice, very good breakfast, good rate on wifi and useful with its pub/restaurant.
Old windows causing bad noise/temperature isolation.
Location was great, car parking free, staff lovely and Pam especially was very very very helpful. We dined in and the food was reasonably priced and good. My lazy 18 year old son didn't get up for breakfast so I asked if I could take a bowl of cereal upstairs. No problem and in fact they made him a bacon buttie - his fav! So 10 out of 10 Antelope
The breakfast experience is always a very friendly start to my day.
Friendly and helpful staff Good restaurant Great location
Late bar & parking
Location convenient in centre of town Staff friendly and helpful Bed comfortable and wider than most singles
