Positive Reviews

Lovely location

The Plantation is in a lovely, quiet location in Poole, UK. The beach is a short walk and guests say they enjoy strolling through the affluent conifer strewn area of west Sandbanks on the way to the beach. Guests ferrying on the Condor to Jersey find this place a gem to stop over. It is pet friendly and guests travelling with pets say that they are delighted with the inn. They are provided rooms in the main building and not in some annexe or dodgy room at the back of the inn as some pet friendly accommodations do.

Stylish and large rooms and bathrooms

Many guests find the rooms stylish, large and welcoming. The beds are superb with crisp linens. The decor is amazing and everything looks brand new and is kept spotless. Guests say that the en suite bathrooms are spacious and they like that they have his and her sinks. They also find the showers to be surprisingly large and appreciate amenities like REN toiletries provided.

Excellent service; great food

Several guests say that the outstanding feature of the inn is the service by the staff which is first rate. The food at the restaurant is delicious and the service here too is excellent. Everything is homemade and many guests say that the breakfasts and dinners are something to die for. Many guests say that the vibe in the bar for drinks is homely with cool touches. They say the instagram-able floor in the conservatory is most unique.
