Thistle Poole

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location makes this hotel great. The rooms are tired (and beds extremely small), and don't represent value for money given that high price point. Check in was excellent - that staff were engaged and helpful. On check out they tried to charge me for the room (which was pre-paid), and it took 30 mins to resolve it (and their resolution was to leave it unresolved, with a credit card swipe taken, in the hope that it took care of itself).
