A room with a view at the top of the hotel was excellent. You could hear the wind and it was strangely comforting to hear it yet be safe and warm inside. The visiting seagulls could be annoying if the window was open, but the young one that visited us was amusing but didn't get

Ended up here in error as I thought I'd booked the Haven, thankfully we were pleasantly surprised. We booked a harbour view room . Room was on the 3rd floor so the view was amazing. Nice room if a little on the small size, everything you needed at hand. Only problem was the tv

Dear debramoore Thank you for your words on your change of venue within the FJB Group - we have the most amazing views on the Harbour, no doubt. I hope you mentioned the TV to reception and that maintenance sorted that for you? I have passed your comments onto Chef regarding dinner - he is most grateful and delighted that you had such a lovely evening. We now offer a buffet-style breakfast, with hot components of the favourite Full English and more, fresh juices, cereals, yoghurts and a continental selection of meats and cheeses - it has gone down very well indeed. Look forward to welcoming you again - in any of our four hotels... Kindest regards.

I’ve been coming to the area for 60 years and lived here for 7. Now my daughter lives here we came down to see her. For years I wanted to stay here. Drank here sometimes but never stayed. It looks exclusive and smart. So we stayed for 2 nights last weekend. The view is terrific

Dear tonyh760 Thank you for commenting on our fabulous view, and we are in the process of a rolling refurbishment - as you will have seen from the bar area, reception and restaurant. Our reception team are on the ball and efficient and do not struggle to make any more of the checking in process than slick. Fish is at market price as you will see from many of our neighbouring restaurtants, and I have passed on your kind words to the waiting team - thank you. We now offer a buffet-style breakfast, with hot components of the favourite Full English and more, fresh juices, cereals, yoghurts and continental selection of meats and cheeses - it has gone down very well - as it were! We pride ourselves on our quality and style that is inherent throughout the group - indeed including the Haven Hotel. Kindest regards.

Dear Kim L Thank you for your review - we loved having you to stay, thank you for your comments on our priceless view as well... The chain ferry is a little way towards the end of the peninsula but offers fabulous opportunities to get to Studland, Swanage and Corfe Castle. The new breakfasts are so popular - we are delighted you liked the new offering. See you again very soon. Kindest regards.

We usually come on out of season promotional deals such as "winter warmer"when it is much less crowded & so always book direct with the Hotel and have never been charged for parking. We agree with you that charging is just a money maker & we think that non residents or restaurant guests can be controlled via a coded barrier, this is successfully done in many other Hotels in which we have stayed. When it is converted into a 5* millionaires Hotel in 4 years time we will no longer be able to afford it,so we will make use of the time available, finances & health allowing!
