We stayed in the hotel in August for two nights. We arrived late but managed to get a rather pricy drink at the bar. While we ordered the drinks and chatted to the owner he stated: 'fish and the guest smell after three days'. Which we thought was not an appropriate comment even as a joke- we thought. Our room...

The hotel itself which although was pretty clean was very dated, like a 70s hotel tbf, the staff (we only saw 2) were pretty absent & when we did meet were not very conversive. There was no big welcome or goodbye, no mention of anything that would be of interest to us during our stay, it felt like we was...

We stayed for a night at the Quarterdeck in early September when visiting our son in Poole... The area is nice, lovely garden view from our ground floor room. The room did smell a bit "doggy". Great breakfast in the morning, pleasant staff. Overall a good visit...

Dear Sir, Once again I have the pleasure in responding to your review. I did confirm with booking .com your reservation as you did book only single occupancy and I needed to know this for the commision rates.

The décor in the Quarterdeck is rather dated but the hotel was clean and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast was good. We did not have an evening meal in the hotel but found a great little place about 10 minutes up the road called Isabel's.

We stayed with a group of about a dozen friends and family for a wedding anniversary. We had a meal at the hotel and left the following morning. The manager was very nice when we viewed the premises prior to booking but the following morning was surly, would not speak to us or look us in the eye for reasons...

Dear Sir or Madam, I remember your function and I am sorry as one of the guests you were not happy. Firstly the lady paying for the function was more than happy and left a gratuity for the waiting staff. If you remember the numbers were down on what was booked and we did not know how many were actually...

This isn't a cheap place to stay, but it is nicely situated next to a park and ideal for dog owners like us. Although it's on a busy road (with car park between) we stayed in a downstairs room at the front and were not disturbed by traffic noise. WiFi in the rooms is a bit hit and miss but...
