Had a last minute decision to visit my daughter yesterday and decided we'd do lunch in town. I was not disappointed with her choice of place. The staff were brilliant and the food was fantastic. Plenty of choice for a lunch time and when our meals arrived they were very filling. We will definitely be back.

We managed to get a room very last minute here last weekend (Sat 15th) and in all honesty, having done no reviews, we were slightly concerned what would greet us. Well we couldn't have been happier. Hotel was lovely, room was stunning and every single member of staff we met went above and beyond. Not only would I recommend this...

Had a lovely meal with the family and Dean was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed for the adults and the children. Great garden which the children had fun running around whilst we sat out outside in the October sunshine

This was my first visit since the refurb. The bar area is great for coffee and a meeting with friends or a work meeting. This was during the morning and the atmosphere might be different at night. Lunch was disappointing. Previous visits had not been disappointing and perhaps being the first lunch served at midday was a problem. But the...

Had a few beers and an early dinner from their day menu with family and friends, great beer, great food and great service! The bar staff were very helpful in finding us a table that we would all fit around in the bar, as we had a little dog, who also had a warm welcome. They had a new beer...

Stayed for 3 nights on a short break. Loved the old style feel of the place, like old leather chairs in the lounge area and lots of old books made the place a little more interesting than the usual modern hotels. All mod cons though, had air con in the room and a wet room. View from the room was...

Recently refurbished in a historic building, very good facilities, comfortable and spacious. Good location for travelling around Dorset and far enough away from the Poole-Bournemouth-Christchurch conurbation. Easy parking and access. Owned by the local brewery with a good selection of well-kept beers. Good food and very helpful and friendly staff.
