We only stayed here for one night as guests at a wedding reception held at the hotel. I'm pleased we had a reduced price (£99 per person per night) however I still think this was overpriced for what you got. We were informed it was one of the best hotels in Poole so we were disappointed. The facade was dreary. There was limited car parking. The reception was drab and lacked wow factor. The lift was out of order and no-one offered to help us with our luggage so it was just as well it was only a couple of overnight bags.
Our room had a harbour view fortunately and was of a good standard however it was on the small side. Nice and clean. The bed was much too soft for our tastes (also commented by other wedding guests incidentally). The mini bar was empty (just as well I suppose!) athough complimentary mineral water was available. We treated ourselves to a cup of tea in the lounge as we didn't discover the facilities hidden away in one of the cupboards until it was too late. The lounge area has good seaviews however the furnishings in some areas are a little tired. Not what I would expect for this standard of hotel frankly.
The food was however in the main quite good although we only ate at the Wedding breakfast and the 'normal' breakfast. The cooked breakfast was fine although I thought the scrambled eggs were rubbery. The orange juice was unfortunately made from concentrate or at least it tasted like it.
On the whole, our stay was fine and rooms were furnished to a high standard however the overall experience was disappointing.
