Came here for a party in October. Room was clean and overlooked a stream. Reasonably priced, great staff. Breakfast was an extra tenner each but not bad when you consider the price of the room. Had some great entertainment the following morning as some men who were night fishing opposite the stream had an argument. Although it wasn't the alarm...

Thank you for your review Michaela, sorry to hear about the fisherman but at least it was a good ice breaker! Next time you come down we will make sure there is no such noise.

We came here for lunch with friends who lived nearby. To be honest from the outside, I wasn't too impressed, however on entering my impression of the place completely changed. The interior was almost Spanish-looking with pretty arches in the large airy and light restaurant. The staff greeted us pleasantly and showed us to a table which overlooked the very...

Very convenient hotel for those visiting the Poole/Bournemouth area. Rooms are clean and tidy, and we had a lovely view. Restaurant is a carvery, with all that implies interms of quantity, traditionalism and value, and there is a convenient bar, with a deck overlooking the river.

Haven't been here in a few years ( and now wish we hadn't bothered). Sunday carvery (for some reason it's dearer on Sunday than weekdays), meat was "carved" in large chunks, potatoes were more like rocks,the vegetables luke warm & tasteless as was the gravy. Definitely an experience that we will NOT be repeating in a hurry or recommending.

Staff were very friendly and hotel was extremely clean and rooms more than adequate. Only down side is ground floor rooms at front look onto a busy road. When you open curtains in morning you feel very exposed as there are no nets or blinds so we ended up keeping curtains closed. On one occasion we were in room with...
