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, offering superb views over one of the world’s largest natural harbours, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck hills beyond.

Staying for a few days to explore the area, great central location and amazing views across the harbour. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast, fantastic selection though the cooked selection could be a little warmer if I was being picky. Will definitely be back, it’s fab.

We only ate here so can’t rate the hotel bedrooms. The food was good and the staff were friendly and efficient. It’s in a great location right on the quay with a large car park. Lots to do in the area as well.

Hi Patricia, I'm afraid that all of your rooms have bath tubs with showers installed. Many thanks, Jonathan General Manager

The hotel was clean and the staff pleasant. I don't think and hopefully did not imply that there was any sort of hygiene problem. I certainly do not think it would not meet your standards of cleanliness My adverse comments merely related to the fact it was in serious need of an update. This is quite obvious and needs no further elaboration. Although it was mentioned refurb was ongoing we did not see any being undertaken. It is in a prime location for an apartment complex so maybe refurb work is on hold or perhaps they are very quiet workers.

Hi Dawn, We'll take a look and see if we can do a complimentary upgrade. Usually only deluxe rooms have a harbour view. Warm Regards, Jonathan General Manager
