A contemporary hotel in Poole Quay, overlooking the Harbour
Thistle Poole is a contemporary hotel on the quayside, overlooking the Harbour. We have 70 bedrooms, most of them with sea views, and two meeting rooms, the largest seating up to 180 people theatre-style. We also have ample on-site car parking available with charges up to £15 per 24 hours for non-residents or £6 per night for over-night guests. A real bonus in this popular seaside town.
Poole is one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations. With its bustling Quay, the best beaches in England and a stunning natural harbour, Poole is the perfect choice for a trip to the South Coast, and the Thistle Poole hotel is the ideal base from which to explore.
Dotted with islands, including Brownsea, famous as the birthplace of the Scouting movement, it’s perfect for watersports and a haven for wildlife. And there’s a wealth of options on dry land too, with the Purbeck hills and glorious Dorset countryside inland from Poole just waiting to be explored.
