Whether you're travelling to Dorset with your family, on a business trip or are simply someone who likes to maintain their levels of fitness, a hotel with a pool can make an excellent choice for your stay. For families, they provide easy entertainment while for businessmen they offer the chance to get in a few invigorating lengths before a meeting. There are plenty of hotels with pools in Dorset, ranging from budget hotels to sprawling manor house hotels.
If you're looking to steal some quality time away with your partner or spouse, there are a few spa hotels in Dorset, many of which have their own pool. The Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant & Spa in Dorchester is about as luxurious as it gets, offering sublime accommodation, a stunning restaurant and supremely serene spa. The pool here is set indoors and heated to the perfect temperature. Spas tend not to accommodate children, so hotels with spas can be a great option for adults who want to unwind in peace and quiet.
However, children don't have to be excluded from your time away; there are numerous family-friendly hotels with pools in Dorset, such as the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff, in Bournemouth, the Best Western Hotel Rembrandt, in Weymouth, and the Haven Hotel in the appropriately-named town of Poole! The majority of family-friendly hotels are well positioned for access to local attractions and landmarks. Having a pool on-site is a great way to enjoy some family time together, before going on to explore just what Dorset has to offer.
Hotels with pools come into their own when the weather turns against you. Dorset is blessed with half the average rainfall experienced by the rest of the country and there are many water-based attractions such as Splashdown, near Corfe Castle. However, even Dorset experiences the odd rainy day and if your day out is scuppered by a downpour, you can hit the pool and still have fun.
Dorset is a wonderful county to explore, whether you enjoy being on terra firma or splashing about in the water. Booking a hotel with a pool can help you enjoy the best of both worlds.
