We love this hotel. The location is second to none, being right on the entrance to Poole harbour at the front and right on the beach the other side. The staff are always fantastic, the food is first class and the place has a great and unique charm all of its own. The Restaurant has possibly the best seascape views...

One of the main reasons for choosing The Haven is that it has a Tesla charging facility. This is a classic traditional 4-star hotel, with space and room to move. The views from the restaurant along the coast towards Durdle Door are stunning. The haven is situated near Poole, the Isle of Purbeck and Brownsea Island. It's very tranquil. However,...

This was our third stay here and although the breakfast was lovely our room was very tired. Fantastic view, but mis-matched furniture and bedding. This has always been a favourite of ours, but will not be returning until they get rid of the threadbare carpet running up the stairs. The carpet where they serve the orange juice etc in the...

Limited but well chosen and balanced menu never disappoints and offers great value, wonderful location for panoramic views of the harbour mouth and channel towards Purbeck, charming little spa and always good service.

Visited for lunch when staying at their sister hotel, The Sandbanks Hotel. So pleased we stayed were we did as I had stayed at the Haven through work about 15 years ago and some of the areas in the hotel had not changed? Lounge area very dark, dull and boring. Lunch was in a lovely bar area overlooking Brownsea island...

Really did enjoy our time away at The Haven Hotel. The staff were really lovely, so helpful and you could tell they enjoyed working there. Yes the rooms maybe a bit of an eighty's throwback but so what, they were clean and the bed was fantastic. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed breakfast and the location right...

Our group of 2 couples came to stay at the Haven to celebrate a couple of birthdays, booking the Summer Sizzler offer, which included room, breakfast and a bottle of wine. We had booked standard rooms, and despite other comments on here, our rooms were quite large, with king-sized beds (zipped together). We had rooms 139 and 141. All decor...

Stayed here for a two night break, really couldn't fault it for service, location and facilities. The views here are superb and the hotel has certainly ensured the layout makes the most of them . However, like many English seaside hotels some of the public areas really did need a makeover. If, as some reviewers have hinted, it is to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Haven Hotel is a luxurious four-star spa hideaway. Perched at the tip of the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula in Poole and surrounded by sea and sand. With direct access to seven miles of beaches and just a couple of steps away from Purbeck over the Shell Bay chain ferry. It’s your gateway to South Coast adventure. Featuring elegant and spaciously designed bedrooms with modern creature comforts. Many of which offer ocean view balconies, so that you can embrace the sea air in your pyjamas. We believe that these naturally beautiful surroundings deserve food that’s a little special. La Roche at the Haven Hotel offers an ambient place to dine. Highly acclaimed by locals and recognised for first-class service and exceptional quality with two prestigious AA-Rosettes. Maintained by the talent and skill of Head Chef Jason Hornbuckle. When the Sandbanks sun shines, our terrace is an enviable spot for alfresco dining. You can literally hear the waves crashing as you recline with a glass of wine. Relaxation is often thought of as a luxury; at the Haven Spa we think it’s a necessity. Haven Spa is a sanctuary to unwind your mind and come to your senses. Stroll from the indoor hydrotherapy pools to the chic outdoor heated pool, complete with sea view Jacuzzi and sun lounger area. Allow yourself the luxury of a spa pampering, performed by our highly experienced and friendly therapists. We’ve chosen VOYA seaweed products to relax, beautify and rejuvenate our guests. ... more   less
