          The location and views from the sea facing room. The service was sound, as experienced at the other FJB hotels.

          A small but important inaccuracy in the dining times but the problem was corrected. The room was a tad on the 'cosy' side.

          we enjoyed the ambience of harbour heights. very relaxing. just what we were looking for.

          Terrace with views were beautiful.

          Bit stingy with complimentary toiletries. No shampoos, no shower caps.

          The location and views

          Having paid a pricey room rate we were very disappointed to be allocated a room with no sea view despite requesting this and even more disappointed that there was a noisy air conditioning unit fitted to the wall outside our room window which made sleeping almost impossible. I complained to the night desk and the unit was switched off. We were moved to a room with a sea view for our second night which was an improvement. We would stay here again but only if we had a guarantee of a sea view room as this is the best feature of the hotel and these are the best rooms. Service in the restaurant/bar not what I would expect from a hotel charging the room rates charged here.We seemed to be ignored at times and had to seek out service. Finally, I could not help overhearing a conversation between staff at reception when checking out mentioning a wedding party staying for the same nights as us had been granted free rooms for the first night of our stay and a reduced room rate for the second night. Explains some of the service issues and why we could not get the sea view room we requested despite having actually paid to stay there. I know these types of commercial decisions are taken but please don't talk about them in front of other paying guests. If considering staying again I would check first if any private functions are being held during my stay.

          The view from the hotel balcony and restaurant was spectacular. The food was well prepared and served with good attention to guests' requirements. It was a pity that other services did not match-up to the meal experience. (see below)

          There appeared to be a lack of staff available at the time to take our orders for the meal. Had to seek out a staff member to ask for the menus and again search to get someone to take our orders. We had booked a table for 11 people for 7pm (only 10 turned up) and although there was a slight delay on our part, in sitting down at 8pm, I expected a little more attention than we got, bearing in mind the number in our party.

          We were very lucky to have lovely weather, we had Dinner on the Terrace over looking the Sea with Live lounge style music - magical.Very good Bath sheets, very soft. Good quiet Air conditioning.

          Like any Hotel in a Beautiful position with glourious weather the staff struggled to cope at times.

        • Older travelers

          The ambiance and setting are idea for a romantic luxury weekend, food and staff are wonderful and attentive. Up-graded to Harbour view which was well worth the extra charge.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The location with stunning views over Pool Harbour and Sandbanks. The room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Lovely big comfy bed.

          We were a little disappointed that all of the indoor lounge area, except for one sofa, was closed off for a private function. There was nowhere else inside for us to sit and we didn't actually see anyone occupying the reserved space whilst we were there which was a bit annoying. However, we found a sheltered spot outside and enjoyed the magnificent views from there.

          My wife and I found it a good location to recapture a slice of our youth as we visited several places with strong memoriesf or us. It was handy for Bournemouth, Poole and the Isle of Purbeck by car or even by public transport and foot with a little bit of fortitude and planning. So town, country or seaside the Harbour Heights is a handy hotel. The staff were helpful and the views and local walks were excellent. The hotel staff gave the whole hotel a warm feel not at all impersonal.

          The summertime prices might stretch our budget but we we happy with the winter time rates and the weather was good.

          A good location, tasty breakfast and pleasant and courteous staff.

          Car parking is tight. Our room was very noisy - due to a nearby a/c unit and paper thin walls. We could hear the people in the room next door quite clearly.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Very roomy and well equipped suite. High quality food, both lunch and dinner. Wiater service very professional ie. attentive but not obtrusive. Splendid location with stunning views. Very pleasant reception staff both at arrival and departure.
