Here’s a real treat. Staying beside Poole Harbour, a prime coastal location, is ideal for the excursions along the wonderful coastline, the Isle of Purbeck and westwards from there to the World Heritage ‘Jurassic Coast’. Plus an included harbour cruise and time in Poole.


THISTLE POOLE HOTEL http://www.thistle.com/ . On the Quayside at Poole, there are exceptional views over the Harbour from the restaurant and public areas. The en suite bedrooms have TV, telephone, hairdryer, tea/coffee making. There is a lift and WiFi. (Note: our allocation is made up of standard rooms which do not have harbour views).
