Salterns Harbourside Hotel
Ranked #11 of 13 Hotels in Poole
Reviewed 8 October 2017 via mobile

Nice location next to a marina and overlooking Poole Harbour. Great views.

Older traditional type hotel, room was modernised and good, large bath room etc albeit I couldn't for the life of me attach the shower head to the rail fitting!

Breakfast was very nice although it seemed to take ages for tables to be cleared.

Ideal for boating and jet skiing ( can be hired from Marina).

Stayed: October 2017, travelled on business

The location of this hotel is very good as it is almost surrounded by water. To get the best view however you need to book a sea view room. The first room we had was a side sea view room which was ok but the full sea view is much better. Its not the sea you see but Poole Harbour anyway. The rooms are tired generally. However the staff are excellent being friendly and attentive. The breakfast is very good as was the Sunday roast. However the roast is so popular it is likely to run out so be sure to pre order it.

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for a full sea view.

This is certainly one of the best dog friendly hotels in Britain. Our dog was welcomed by all the staff. Our large room had a lovely view of the harbour and was very accommodating with a large bed and all amenities. We ate in the bar with our dog beside us, the menu was extensive and the food absolutely delicious. We notified the staff in advance that we would like breakfast in the bar so that our dog could join us and this was readily actioned. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, your every need both human and canine is catered for.

Room Tip: Lovely views of Brownsea Island, Sandbanks and the harbour

We stayed for two separate nights for ferry connections inbound and outbound - the bed on first occasion was uncomfortable - tv remote battery had expired and reception had none to replace it! On second visit the beds were diabolical - felt every spring all though the night - given top floor room in spite of obvious disability - no lift nor help with bags - towel rail falling off wall - no blind or curtain on bathroom window - every aspect of room was tired and weary - written account of complaints left with receptionist but no response. Breakfast was ok.

Recently stayed here on business. Lovely hotel. Old style bedrooms which vary depending on what room. Mine was a four poster, large and very nice as per the photos. However, my colleague was a twin and fairly small and from the 80’s.

Dinning area was nice, quite and with a lovely few over the harbour. Likewise the bar. Both are updated to a good standard.

Breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about.

Free parking out the front makes for a nice overnight stop.
