Great location and parking
Toilet very hard to flush
Right on the quayside, good for shops up the road and walking further along the coast
Nothing we did not like
every thing about this hotel was what I wanted 10 out of 10
location was just perfect breakfast very good
Staff very friendly and helpful. Bar menu Food was good value for money and with a good choice
The staff were very helpfull and professional in everyway Food was very good and very reasonably priced
Nothing to dislike
Generally the hotel is of good upkeep and presentation but flat in terms of design and originality. Friendly welcome from reception is always nice. Room average. Breakfast was buffet style in a nice setting overlooking the harbour.
The room was cold and the electric fan heater had little impact. Bit of a flat mattress on the bed. The £5 charge for overnight parking is way too steep. Arrived at 10:30pm and left at 8:00am. Feel sure they could negotiate this with the local authority.
Unable to use wi fi which I like and expect
Location is excellent and the staff very pleasant. Room was as expected, comfortable enough.
Small plates for breakfast why??
as a regular visitor , I always have the excellent service , good comfortable rooms ,just can't find a fault with this prime location hotel . well done everyone .......
Towels in the bathroom were stained with what looked like makeup
Location and Comfort food good
Parking fee (was not clear you had to register before you pay and therefore ended up paying twice as much. Rooms need to be upgraded to higher standard. Paid similar price to a 5* hotel in London (appreciate that was a good deal) but would expect a higher standard for this price.
Dining room fantastic views of Pool Harbour and Brownsea Island. 20 minute walk into the Dolphin Centre. Minutes from the tourist area for pickup a boat to take you to Brownsea and Wareham. Parking although there is a £5.00 per day! pay when you arrive
Having to pay the £5.00 per day to park. The breakfast we pre-piad for £10pp very good but a few more staff wold have been helpful. Would stay again if in Poole
The two receptionists on arrival were so lovely they upgraded us and gave us chocolates and a card for out anniversary on arrival they offered to take our bags and prepared the room fast for us. Location was perfect for all attractions eg durdle door lulworth bournmouth swanage Poole. Fantastic value for money and beutiful view of the quay from our bedroom window. Couldn't have asked for a better stay! Thankyou!!
The location couldn't be better, right on the quay, I think price is a little high, day I left Ian on reception told me as from that day untill spring ,price went down £20 per room inc breakfast, just my luck. Staff I met were really nice, from cleaners to front desk, I will stay again while prices are down.
Had to pay for breakfast, fantastic views, but not good, bacon was like shoe leather, and the eggs were yuck, had a plastic like coating over the top where they had been under heat lamp, go to fishermans cafe up the road, brilliant , and half the price, outside of building needs a good power wash on walls, looks very drab,
Friendly staff. Good breakfast
Central heating didn't work so had to plug in a heater, this meant the bathroom was not warm.
positive welcoming staff Cleanliness adn comfort of room location
Friendly staff a clean and tidy room with a great view.
The staff were all friendly
Location Friendly staff Clean and comfortable
I was surprised that there weren't more facilities, e.g. a gym. But it didn't really matter.
Location and the breakfast
Comfort of bed.
Location was fab beautiful sea view from the front, We didn't need this. We arrived very late at night, parking was easy.
Expensive breakfast option that we didn't use. Cheaper option in the weatherspoons pub nearby. Paying for parking, although it was cheaper than some places we have stayed in, the room rate is expensive enough.
Great location on the quay nice harbour view
Needs updating, expensive and rate did not include breakfast
Location to the Quay.
