Stayed in the Shah of Persia for a long weekend due to the gathering of the family. Booked it first and then read previous Trip advisor reviews and was very relived and now here is mine.
Rooms............All you need. Good rooms with spotlessly clean and comfortable beds. Felt very homely. Bathroom was very good standard with loads of hot water.. Central heating effective. And although a little noisy at times did not interrupt me sleeping; they do supply ear plugs for the more sensitive but we didn't use them. TV with DVD player and coffee tea etc.
We did feel the rooms could do with a lick of pain and spruce of the furniture as both looked a trifle tired. On top of that baring in mind we stayed 3 nights no one came to the room to bed-make, provide clean towels. or replenish. the tea and coffee. We assumed that this was not included in the ridiculously inexpensive per night rate. We did feel also that the room cleaning itself could be improved upon.
Breakfast............is part of the rate and we stayed for £35 per night. We did find it hit and miss in standard and service. Sat morning was very good in quality, quality and service. Sunday was a disappointment every arrived having come out of a deep fat fryer and over cooked and cold. Service was not great either. Monday on the other was excellent food standard excellent.
The Restaurant...................use the restaurant we found it a really very good value . They do two meals for one and if you were staying there was further 20% off and there was no compromise on standard. Every MEAL( not breakfast) was very good.
Location ..............I actually chose .this hotel because I knew its location and public transport links to both Poole and Bournemouth. You could easily walk to Poole but buses run from just outside the Hotel and a two minute walk to to the stop that goes to Bournemouth. The buses advertise a 3 minute service I am not sure it is quite that but it is certainly very frequent. I parked the car and got around with easy on public transport.
Easy to book the stay and found the up to the last minute cancellation and pay on departure (without even a deposit taken) refreshingly trusting and I liked it.
Would I stay again I certainly would and would like to thank the team for a more than pleasant stay and any critisism made was made purely to HELP management. For those who are thinking of booking please do it really is a lovely little hotel to stay in a lovely part of the world.
I will definately be back.
