... other hand, had a blank slate to work with. I had been in contact with some old colleagues whilst I was away but I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do. Having time to think is a double edged sword. Firstly it is great to be able to have the time to make the right decisions but secondly, it also gives you option paralysis. What I mean by this, is that so many options become realistic and it all becomes quite overwhelming ...

So the fun challenge of packing 2 months worth of clothes into a fairly small backpack begins! This time next week we shall be in the air/waiting for our transferring flight from Singapore to Perth.
Got to decide what to pack - such a wide range of temperatures - at least we will miss a good part of the English ...
We walked up the main street and had breakfast at a little place called the Horse with the Red Umbrella. Glenn, Leonie and Rod had Bread Pudding for breakfast which is a typical southern English breakfast. We then booked out and went to an old Roman Fort called the Maumbury Rings. There wasn't much left of the fort but the town had preserved the area well. Then off to do the washing, lucky Glenn onm his birthday and all! We went into ...
... illustrations next to the real thing. This is true Beatrix Potter land. On the way back, we tried to go onto the Ullswater Steamers but the car park was full. Turns out there is an overflow car park, which was badly signposted when we went! Our boat trip was amazing, probably due to the weather - brilliant sunshine! We downloaded an app to accompany the trip, it was interesting but repetitive. The boat was comfortable with facilities on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Harbour Heights Hotel Poole
Comfortable & good brekfast
Stayed for one night in a sea view room. The rate was a little expensive at £125 per night including breakfast. The room & bathroom were very well appointed, although the interactive system on my TV didn't seem to work & my bathwater was slightly brownish in colour. The room had a fantastic view over Poole harbour, with a small balcony.
I found the staff to be very helpful from the point of checking in to checking out when the receptionist very kindly researched my travel plans on their internet and printed me off a routeplanner.
The breakfast was exceptionally good, I opted for the full English which was freshly prepared and made a change from a hot buffet.
Overall I'd return, but I'd be reluctant to pay much more than £125 per night.
This Hotel is in an amazing location, it has had a great deal of money spent on it and it shows, we were slightly alarmed when we pulled up in our peugeot 307 and the car park was full of ferraris and bentleys and aston martins, however the room was out of this world with a beautiful view, we had a spa bath, robes and slippers, iron and trouser press, tv, sofa, chairs, the most comfy bed I have ever slept in!, the room was truly the best bit, however....who wants to spend all day in their room?. For the 2 night stay and £440.00 for b&b later...me!, it is soooo expensive you need to feel like you have got your moneys worth but we wanted to go sight seeing!, £440 for 2 for b&b is so overpriced, which must be to pay for the pretentious staff. Truly I have never heard the waitress in any hotel say 'Chow sweetie' as you leave breakfast!, very funny!, the reception staff just glare or not acknowledge you when you walk past and the hotel is the most pretentious place I have ever stayed. I like to dress to impress and also like a degree of pretentiousness, however this was just too much. I would not stay here again purely because it is overpriced snobbery, however it was an experience.
Great small hotel, magnificent view
Stayed for two nights as last minute change of venue and were very pleased. Very comfortable room with good quality boutique style furnishings and spa bath. Restaurant was fully booked for wedding party but we were a late arrival and hadn't booked a table in advance so not the hotel's fault. Quality of room service dinner was excellent. Room service breakfast could be better and it's certainly worth the effort of getting out of bed to have breakfast downstairs with the magnificent view of Sandbanks/Poole Harbour/ Brownsea Island. What the hotel lacks in facilities it makes up for with its prime location and stylish restaurant / bar.
I use to enjoy visiting this hotel in the 70's with my grandparents so I was looking forward to going back to stay a night recently.
The Harbour Heights hotel is a stunning contemporary hotel with sensational sea views! We often stay in Cornwall and Devon but thought we should try out Dorset. We heard about the Harbour Heights through a friend, looked at their website and booked without hesitation.
I stayed here for a Saturday night recently.
We stayed here in 2004 and it was the most relaxing weekend we've had for ages. The Hotel is absolutely gorgeous and we had a room with a balcony and sea view, wonderful to wake up to! REALLY couldn't find fault with this hotel and highly recommend for a special weekend.
The recent refurbishment of this hotel was much needed and has resulted in a sophisticated, luxurius hotel. The Harbar bar is elegantly furnished as are the restaurants and bedrooms. We only stayed one night, but I loved the room we were allocated with breathtaking views of the Harbour and out to sea. We had a small balcony, with patio doors. All of the standard luxuries were included but the all of the added luxuriouness of the soft leather, chrome and dark wood made it really comfortable. I didnt want to leave. Breakfast is served in the main restaurant (again with stunning views) and was made to order, fresh fish and eggs 'just how you like them' with fresh fruit juices. I felt thoroughly looked after and will definately be returning, in fact I would say there isnt a better hotel in Dorset than the Habour Heights.
First impressions of Harbour Heights is that a great deal of time and money has gone into giving this hotel the "wow" factor. While we didn't stay in the hotel (we just lunched), the decor in the common areas is pure boutique-chic.
