We stayed for 2 nights B&B and one dinner in Mid-January 2014, courtesy of a Travelzoo offer. We were delighted with the location, the staff and the food. The location of the hotel is superb with great views over both Bournemouth Bay and Poole Harbour. The staff were excellent, in particular the maitre d - Jose Martin, he was friendly and helpful and a real asset to the restaurant.
The rooms are getting rather dated and a bit tired, but they were spotlessly clean and all the essentials were provided. A great break and we'd happily return.
