Antelope Hotel - Poole

3 star Inn Poole

High Street - Poole

Price starting from £ 31 .00

Close to the picturesque quayside of this popular historical fishing town, the Antelope Hotel is the perfect place to enjoy centuries-old hospitality in Poole. Once a famous old coaching house in the High Street, it served as a stop-off point for onward travel to Lymington, Southampton, Bath, Bristol, Weymouth and London, and still offers affordable accommodation. Poole's bustling natural harbour has daily cross-channel sailings to France and the Channel Islands, and the area boasts dramatic cliffs, great beaches and magical coves.

Retaining many of its original 15th-century features, this charming Old English Inns hotel boasts the cosy Smuggler’s restaurant and bar, which will capture the imagination with ancient nautical and fishing paraphernalia - to say nothing of the delicious fare. The property also offers complimentary wireless Internet access. Parking is not available on site, but can be found nearby, for a fee. Whether here for a breakfast meeting or a romantic break, guests will certainly enjoy their time at this hotel.

This is a smoke-free property.

This hotel is very tired, however I understand that a revamp of some sort is due shortly(Sept 2013) and is much needed, especially in the bedroom and corridor areas.

I have sent you an e mail with all the complaints it was awful. I am recovering from major surgery and the noise was awful with a band like Ibiza they had to move us but no better. Ceiling tiles were hangingoff due to a leak about as with the curtains. Then the waitress told everyone at breakfast we were the ones who complained as well as other guests. It was dreadful. Hope the one in Spain we booked thru you is better June Freer
