The ancient port of Poole is a friendly, easy-going town, with its traditional Quay still very much at its heart. And that's where you'll find Thistle Poole. A contemporary hotel on Poole Quay, overlooking the famous Harbour At Thistle Poole, the hotel has 70 bedrooms, most of them with sea views, and two meeting rooms, the largest seating up to 180 people theater-style. The hotel has ample on-site parking available for a small additional charge - a real bonus in this popular seaside town. The Thistle Poole is a non-smoking hotel

Area description
Poole is one of the world's largest natural harbors. Dotted with islands, including Brownsea, famous as the birthplace of the Scouting movement, it's perfect for water sports and a haven for wildlife. And while seafaring folk are spoiled for choice, there's a wealth of options on dry land too, with the Purbeck hills and glorious Dorset countryside inland from Poole just waiting to be explored.

Depressing hotel

I was staying in a single room which didn't look anything like the hotel website photos. The room was really depressing. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls, the carpet was filthy,the seat cover had stains on it and there was a cigarette cartoon wrapper in the warderobe ( in non smoking room). But the worst thing was that there was a large yellow stain on my bedsheets! There was a plastic folder on the table with hotel service details. I never read it as it was so dirty that I didn't want to touch it. Also on the table there was a laminated small card with hotel details on it. It was ripped but still left to room by cleaners. The card had an old phonenumber for the hotel which is not anymore in use. The hotel website advertises its bar. The bar was closed during my 3 day visit. Even the public areas need urgent renovation. The corridor carpets have holes in them.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Banana Wharf is just a very short walk away from the hotel. Friendly service, good pizza and lovely views. Also further along the quay Da Vinci is a lovely italian restaurant. During the lunch time food is 50% off.

Pleasant Stay

You pay for the location of the hotel which overlooks the harbour, with only a short walk into the town centre. Lovely walks along the quay with plenty of pubs & restaurants. Town centre has many large shops. Our room was good size and clean but looked in need of new wallpaper & carpet. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again if price is right.

wonderful view over the quay

Position of this hotel is absolutely perfect for Poole town and the quay. We had a sea view room overlooking the quay at the front of the hotel , more expensive but worth every penny. Took a boat trip to Brownsea island etc which you could board just a 2 minute stroll from the hotel - and a lovely evening walk through the park to the right of the hotel . We will definitely return .The in-room tea and coffee facilities are also a real nice touch.

Do also try the 'Off Quay' restaurant in the High St. Innovative menu, well cooked food and lovely hosts.
