My parents from France and I, from Canada, came to visit my sister in Poole for a few days. I found Mountbatten Court online and since it seemed incredibly affordable and their website showed lovely pictures of the rooms, I called up to book our rooms.
Everything about our stay there was outstanding and it would take more than this review to describe it accurately. From the first contact on the phone, Pat was so kind and accommodating, and reservations were made without fuss. Upon arrival, we were greeted with friendly smiles and already felt welcome. Although I told him it wasn't necessary, Andy insisted on taking all of our luggage upstairs to our rooms. And speaking of the rooms, the photos on the website don't do them justice. So comfortable, spacious, tastefully decorated AND impeccably clean, with also a spotless en-suite bathroom. The 37" HDTV and free Wi-Fi was a nice bonus too. And we found the location so quiet and peaceful in a beautiful neighbourhood.
Breakfast is included and what a feast ! Traditional home-made English breakfast that will set you up for the day, Pat and Andy will not let you leave the table hungry.
Our lasting impression was Pat's kindness, and of course, Andy's legendary sense of humour !
If you are visiting Poole, Bournemouth or Dorset in general, you can go ahead and waste time and money looking for an accommodation, or you can book your stay at the Mountbatten Court.
Honestly, the experience was so great that I was sort of expecting a "catch", and even jokingly told Pat & Andy. They replied that they treat their guests the way they would with family and friends. Indeed...
