This hotel is in a stunning location, excellent sea views from the bar/dining area. A great base for visiting local attractions (Studland, Swanage, Poole). Fascinating to watch the fishing boats and ferries coming and going. Very comfortable outdoor seating area to relax in. Our room was large, comfortable and clean but overlooked the car park (we booked a last minute special offer via another website and I wonder if we were allocated such a room because of what we paid or maybe the hotel was just full). Reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was a buffet, hot food was not hot enough (maybe cold plates to blame) tasted OK though. Dinner was average, my husband said his steak was tasteless, lots of salt and pepper helped. The restaurant Manager and our waitress were very pleasant and service good. We chose not to eat in the restaurant on our second night. Overall we enjoyed our stay but were a little disappointed with the food.
- 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. We’ve chosen VOYA seaweed products to relax, beautify and rejuvenate our guests. ... more less
