Good staff very helpful
Everything. Don't know what else we can say! Really enjoyed our stay. One of the best places we have stayed. Thank you.
Info on parking would be better sent in advance
The bar. The bed was superb. Had a bar meal and it was very nice.
The punch up in the bar. Big gang of lads in the bar at 1830hrs. Some the worse for booze and they kicked off. Not what expexted.
On arrival nice and friendly .. Parking near by Room clean but basic value for money paid.
No late bar ..cooked breakfast was cold could not eat it really. En -suite a bit tatty
Lovely staff. Great to have a pub on site for food and drinks. Spacious room.

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
