I arrived last week for a 3 night stay and the food was outstanding! Had a beautiful room with a lovely view and was never left without good service. The bar man on 2 of the nights was Harry and he did an amazing job! Never let us have an empty glass!

I will always return to the thistle for business or personal stays. The staff are pleasant and professional and the amenities and service are second to none. You are treated with politeness and a friendly, welcoming manner. The bar and restaurant staff were exceptional. Chloe, my waitress was brilliant! Very patient and friendly, understanding and seemed very professional under pressure. I would recommend a stay at the thistle for business or pleasure to anyone. 5 star service and a 5star plus with Chloe if you would be so lucky to have her present on you’re stay.

Went there too visit my mum in Poole coming from the Wiltshire area with my partner. We went for a drink at the bar there and met a lovely young lady thing her name was Chloe she had blonde hair. She was so friendly and had a lovely chat with her. She kept on top of the new covid restrictions also which me and my partner were very impressed with. (Didn’t take any photos unfortunately but overall the place was great)
