The town centre location of our hotel in Poole, just minutes from the award-winning golden sandy beaches of Sandbanks, quayside walks, the ferry to Brownsea Island, and the Channel Islands and beyond to France, means whatever your reasons for staying with us, be they for business or pleasure, convenience must be among them.
The warmth of the welcome you will receive from our friendly staff will be matched by the cosy comfort of our rooms, all of which are spacious, finished in a contemporary style, and come with complimentary Wi-Fi access and a hearty breakfast each morning. Double, twin, and executive rooms are available, and if you have accessibility needs we would advise booking a DDA approved room as far in advance as possible.
With the regional headquarters of Barclays, Honeywell, Siemens, RNLI, Lush, Animal and Sunseeker International just walking distance from our front doors, we are in the business heart of Poole. As a result of this, our hotel is a popular venue for formal and informal meetings, and our lounge, bar, heated patio area and two fully equipped modern Meeting Rooms are at your disposal.
For those on holiday and wishing to explore the many delights the south coast of England has to offer, there are the treasures of the Jurassic Coast with its fossils and the many spectacular rock formations to spy, the ancient market towns, rivers to fish, family fun days and adventures to be had.

Booked a superior room. Room was just a standard room. No extras in room (water/chocolates) and decor/bathroom dated. When queried with reception was advised the manager would call later that day. No call received, I didn't ring them as the refund
offered would not be covered by the premium call cost! Would not book superior room again.
Rooms were OK, i'll say that .This aside it was pretty awful. You have to pay for parking, rude staff, basic breakfast tucked into a corner, people milling around trying to get to the food. had a row about some garlic bread i ordered which was a
microwaved mess, staff wouldn't refund it and sneered openly at me when I spoke to them. Hotel miles away from any amenities, severely regretting staying there.
I have stayed at this hotel many times and it has been refurbished and they through a decent hot breakfast bar in with the room rental. Only problem is that they still do the dumb UK trick of charging for internet access. You can walk downtown in
3 minutes and it has a good full sized public pool next door if you swim like I do. Different hardness of pillow offered is unusual at this price point. Good stay.
