Generally the hotel is fine but feels a little tired and dated in its decor. In saying that the view over the harbour and out to Brownsea Island is great and even better in the summer. The location of the hotel in the town gives...More

OK nowhere is at its best in winter but Room 20 was a little tired, breakfast was in a temporary location and not at its best. The shower suffered from a lack of pressure. Not sure why we had to pay £5 to park. Good...More

Nothing spectacular inside the room but a great view if you get a room in the front looking at the yacht and the sand bank. Even a binoculars to appreciate the view. Near to a lot of restaurants and you can walk along the quay.
