Fantastic
  I stayed at Antelope Hotel in Poole, booked through Infotel. The Hotel was fine, staff were very friendly and the food was great. The rooms were clean and tidy but a little on the noisy side. However, not noisy enough to cause concern. Would happily stay there again. Reviewed by Neil Duffield on 17 Jan 2014

The Antelope Hotel Poole near Bournemouth is situated on the Quay at Poole Harbour within easy each of the busy seaside resort of Bournemouth via the A35.The Antelope Hotel has a 500+ year history, arguably the oldest inn in Poole. The deposed French King Charles X was once a guest, and it was regularly used during WWII by the Special Operations Executive, which had a ship in Poole Harbour. The Antelope Hotel is a famous old coaching house in the High Street of Poole and has been a popular meeting place through the centuries. It still retains part of its original 15th century building. Situated so conveniently for Poole Quay, the hotel was used by the horse coaches as a stop off for Lymington, Southampton, Bath, Bristol, Weymouth and London. Whatever the reason for your visit or stay at The Antelope, we can guarantee a welcoming atmosphere, delicious food, a roaring open real fire in the winter, comfortable rooms and unique relaxed style of hospitality, which makes The Antelope a favourite with locals, business people and visitors alike. We host live music every Thursday & Friday in the bar and guests should check with hotel if they need a quiet room, especially families with young children

The hotel has 23 en suite bedrooms, with a mixture of singles, doubles, twins and two Feature rooms for that special occasion. All rooms are equipped with colour TV, direct dial phones, tea and coffee making facilities, iron and ironing board. Free Wifi is available throughout the hotel. We host live music every Thursday & Friday in the bar and guests should check with hotel if they need a quiet room, especially families with young children.

The hotel`s restaurant, the Smugglers Suite, is available for private hire and can hold up to 100 people for a sit down meal or 50 people in theatre style for a conference. Smugglers Restaurant provides the perfect setting for weddings, birthdays and private parties.

Relax in our cosy bar and enjoy a variety of traditional bar snacks, light bites and daily "specials" washed down with cask ales and fine wines. On sunnier days enjoy our menu al fresco style in our raised decking area on the heated patio. In the winter snuggle up beside our real open fire.

Step off the high street into Poole`s oldest hostelry and then walk through to discover the hidden treasure of Smuggler`s restaurant. Smugglers is adorned with all kinds of ancient nautical and fishing paraphernalia, very much in keeping with the maritime feel of this old building. Flagstone floors, raised decking areas, wood panelling, brick arches and wooden banisters all combine to create cosy dining areas and of the feeling of a bygone age. Enjoy a great selection of freshly-prepared meals, including Chef`s Daily Specials, fine wines and cask ales.
