We needed somewhere to hold the 'wake' after the funeral of a close relative. We had about 35 family members coming after the service. We needed some quiet space in which to chat, share our thoughts and memories and of course replenish our ourselves. With the guidance of Anna in Sales, who was very efficient and understanding, we booked the full afternoon tea presented as a buffet. Even though we were booking at very short notice, she and the chef tailored the food and drinks to meet our particular needs and provided us with everything for which we had asked in a a very tasteful way. The room although large was arranged so that we were not lost in it but were congregated at the end with the fantastic view of Poole Harbour. The members of staff who were assigned to our function were most helpful and friendly. The hotel threw in the use of a projector and screen so that by bringing a laptop along we were able to enjoy a slideshow of old family pictures that we had scanned in from various albums.
Whilst it was an event that we would all rather hadn't been necessary the hotel could not have done more to make it a pleasant one. We hope to return under happier circumstances and would not hesitate to use the this facility again or to recommend it to anyone else.More
