And where better to enjoy the sea breeze in your hair than just off the historic Quayside in a narrow cobbled street at one of the most charming hotels in Poole.
Miles of glorious, golden sand on the cleanest beaches in Britain, the largest natural harbour in Europe, captivating seafront, colourful fishing boats, exhilarating water sports and stunning coastal walks await you in Poole. Other attractions include the largest Arts centre outside London as well as the wildlife haven of Brownsea Island..

Originally built in 1776, as the 'Mansion House', we've lovingly refurbished the hotel to reflect its nautical past, while adding typical du Vin panache. Original stone stairs and classical columns greet you, with flickering ship's lanterns lighting the way. The courtyard's sail-like awning invites you to dine under the stars. The comfy sofas and low beams of the Snug welcome you for an aperitif, cocktail, or nightcap. Our expert Sommelier in the Laroche tasting room will guide you, while our delicious hearty, locally sourced dishes in our trademark bistro will please you.
Our unique function rooms, 'Port' and 'Starboard', are perfect for celebrating, meeting, or private dining. Our 38 smart and stylish bedrooms are perfect to lay anchor for the night, with their soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, huge custom-made beds, hand-sprung mattresses, fluffy towels and robes, drenching monsoon showers or roll top baths.
