We stayed three nights in a sea view room. In spite of its position over the garden and bar, it was very quiet, and as other reviewers have said, the views were magnificent. The weather was unusually hot for the UK, but without asking, fans were provided which kept our room (huge and south facing) very cool. We were delighted that we chose Salterns over the other contenders (Thistle in Poole and Sandbanks Hotel) as we thought the position was perfect to get around the area and meet up with Friends who found the parking facilities much better than the other two hotels.
The restaurant is only one of from pub food. We were very happy to eat there on our first night, but ate out on the other evenings. Breakfasts were fine - although closing at 10.00am would have been nicer than 9.30. Unfortunately, we have to agree with some of the comments regarding the bar. The hotel is in a popular location, and effectively part of the marina. It therefore attracts a lot of non-residents some of whom are less than totally polite, a position which is not helped by pretty some incompetent bar staff. Not a big deal, and certainly not enough to stop us staying here again, but which leads me to reduce "excellent" to "good" .
