We use the hotel bar, for coffee, and the occasional glass of wine. Amazing view of the harbour, staff are friendly and attentive, wine is nice, tad pricey, bar menu looks ok. One of the best spots on the Quay on a sunny day.More

I’m only giving two stars because the staff were lovely. The hotel itself only deserves one star. This hotel desperately needs renovating. It’s decor is straight out of the 1990’s. Maybe other rooms are nicer but ours was the most basic room I’ve ever stayed...More

Thistle Poole has really upped its game. Rooms updated. Staff helpful and efficient. Near to port for ferries to Channel Islands and France. (Please Note) - A minimum of 200 characters is ridiculous. I have said all I want to say in 140.More
