Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in November. Our room was very nice, with an amazing view over the harbour, although the decor could do with an upgrade the room was very clean, and we did appreciate there being fresh bottled water supplied every day. The bathroom had shower gels & lotions which was a nice touch.
The only downside is the lack of soundproofing in the bedrooms, as we were kept awake until 2.30am on 2 of the nights with talking from either next door or underneath us, it was very difficult to tell. I did note this on the hotel guest report which was left in the room to be collected.

Breakfasts were served in the bistro, and there was continental & full english as well as scrambled eggs etc. In the evening we preferred to eat in the bar area as the bistro seemed too quiet. The food was very good, and plenty of it.
We really liked being able to leave our car in the hotel car park and walk to the end of the road to catch a bus to Poole, Sandbanks or Bournemouth. The bus ride to Poole is only 13 minutes and to Sandbanks 11 minutes. There is also an open top bus which you can catch in Sandbanks which takes you across on the ferry to Swanage where you can catch another bus to Poole going through lovely little villages like Corfe Castle. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. All in all we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a full sea view, and watch the ferries to France come & go!!

Really nice place to eat, would love this place in the summer, gorgeous views. After eating in both the restaurant and the bar area I would prefer to sit in the bar area. (There are proper tables and chairs) it just feels a lot more welcoming sitting in there. Reasonably priced for lovely food :)

As in recent reviews we visited the hotel for the living social deal which was advertised as fillet steak and chips, which sounded very nice, in actual fact it was,
it was the size that was a let down,it was just not enough, the steak was tiny with
only a few chips and small side salad,( I personally think they do this on purpose
so you also have to buy their sweet ) with the deal it was not too bad but if you had paid full price im sure you would of been well upset ..

We visited this hotel to eat in their restaurant on a deal purchased via Living Social. We are local people and have never been to this venue before so we thought we would give it a try. You would think that if they were marketing themselves on Living Social they would pull out all the stops to really wow the customer so they would spread positive words locally and recommend the venue. They didn't. They offered a steak meal for 4 stating an £84 value. The steak was about 6oz max. accompanied by a tiny side salad of mainly watercress and a tiny bucket of chips containing about 20 chips for two! yes two people! We had to order another couple of portions of chips. When these came they were massive! enough for eight. They didn't mention this when ordering as we were expecting two more tiny buckets. The value of the meal offered on the deal was in my opinion less than we paid. We did have a couple of bottles of wine which were very nice and we ordered starters. For starters the sardines were nice but the fishcake was mainly tasteless potato. It is a shame they did not really try and pull out all the stops for our first visit because if they had invested in us as customers they would have got their money back. However we will not be returning (even if a deal was offered) and we will be telling our quite substantial circle of friends not to either. How shortsighted of this business.

Lovely place on the waterfront. Great for wedding fotos. The food is average and so is the service. Rooms somewhat out dated and could really be perked up a bit. The carpeting could also do a makeover. Lots of kids, so it seems to be a family hotel and restaurant. Ok for short stay.
