    4/5 Good

    The hotel was in a great location overlooking Poole Harbour with free car parking. However the hotel was beginning to show signs of age and the lift did not work. A smallrefurbishment would make a world of difference.

    No fridge or safe in room No Gluten free bread available at Breakfast. Had to pay for parking

    Stayed 2 nights in Aug 2019


    The bathroom sink smelled of bad drains. After complaining two days running it was treated, rendering the room uninhabitable. We were moved to a different room where the sink was badly cracked, and still smelled. The glass on the bedside table had a chunk out making it feel unsafe. The area around the window was extremely shabby. The curtains did not hang correctly. Bathroom tiles damaged. Need I Say more ?
