This is supposedly a 4star hotel. I would rate it as 1.5. Room was fine at first glance then you saw the chipped paintwork on the pipes and woodwork. Dirt was found behind bathroom taps. A draught like a force 9 came from the close bathroom window, making the leisurely bath more like a cold channel swim. Noise of water pipe in wall was like water treatment that went on all night.
Food was nouvelle cuisine ( do they not know it went out of fashion years ago) and the choice was limited. Normally we travel Europe and research our hotels and have stayed in some of the best 5 stars, but this was a gift from our. Daughter. Would much rather have stayed at a Butlins holiday camp (never have) but it could not have been any worse and probably would have been much better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Haven Hotel is a luxurious four-star spa hideaway. Perched at the tip of the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula in Poole and surrounded by sea and sand. With direct access to seven miles of beaches and just a couple of steps away from Purbeck over the Shell Bay chain ferry. It’s your gateway to South Coast adventure. Featuring elegant and spaciously designed bedrooms with modern creature comforts. Many of which offer ocean view balconies, so that you can embrace the sea air in your pyjamas. We believe that these naturally beautiful surroundings deserve food that’s a little special. La Roche at the Haven Hotel offers an ambient place to dine. Highly acclaimed by locals and recognised for first-class service and exceptional quality with two prestigious AA-Rosettes. Maintained by the talent and skill of Head Chef Jason Hornbuckle. When the Sandbanks sun shines, our terrace is an enviable spot for alfresco dining. You can literally hear the waves crashing as you recline with a glass of wine. Relaxation is often thought of as a luxury; at the Haven Spa we think it’s a necessity. Haven Spa is a sanctuary to unwind your mind and come to your senses. Stroll from the indoor hydrotherapy pools to the chic outdoor heated pool, complete with sea view Jacuzzi and sun lounger area. Allow yourself the luxury of a spa pampering, performed by our highly experienced and friendly therapists.
