Stayed 2 nights for a friends wedding which took place in the hotel. Overall we found it to be poor value for money and not worth its star rating.
Room size adequate, with the horrible view of a rusting external fire escape, where the staff congregated to smoke. Bathroom was very small, though the whirlpool bath was a bonus. TV was small by modern standards, and only had freeview and no Sky.
Food was disappointing with breakfast on the first morning's stay being cold and tasteless. You had to order hot food rather than helping yourselves, though the food was served cold in the end. The second morning's breakfast was better, though still very average and relatively tasteless.
The lady on reception was very helpful and chirpy, but the breakfast staff and management were quite off hand and unfriendly.
Wouldn't recommend a stay in the hotel except for great views overlooking Poole Harbour, and the hotel seems to play on that fact with their pricing. Quite a long drive and distance from Poole town centre. Nothing special. Overpriced for an average hotel
