A contemporary hotel in Poole Quay, 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 £10 per 24 hours for non-residents or £5 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.
