Harbour Heights Hotel

View from Harbour Heights Hotel


Harbour Heights Hotel offers boutique and stylish surroundings, paired with dramatic views across the famous Sandbanks Peninsula and Poole Harbour’s striking Brownsea Island, easily boasting one of the best panoramas in Dorset. Complemented with fresh interiors, individually commissioned furnishings and artwork - this property is truly unique - one of the best of Dorset’s new breed of luxury boutique hotels.
With such a unique vantage point, you can watch the sunset whilst sipping champagne on our spacious terrace. And if you are staying watch it rise again over the golden sweep of Sandbanks Beach.

It’s no surprise that we want our food to be just as breathtaking, which is why our destination restaurant ‘Harbar Bistro’ serves double AA-rosette awarded cuisine maintained by our talented Head Chef Loic Gratadoux who is dedicated in using  fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.  And then, there’s our highly acclaimed and extensive wine cellar, which houses some truly exciting vintages, some from unusual, lesser-known vineyards.

When the weather’s welcoming, bask in the sunshine with a glass of wine, or dine on the terrace overlooking the magical harbour islands. The difficult choice will be where to sit and what to order.

During your visit do try to stay for tea... our pastry chefs serve the most wonderful Afternoon Teas with a selection of freshly made finger sandwiches and cakes, served with warmed scones, Dorset clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of Dorset tea or coffee. For an extra special treat, why not add a few bubbles to the experience too?

While staying with us, you will notice the fashionable interior continues through the corridors and into your bedroom - many of which directly overlook the sea and harbour and all have a unique appeal and timeless quality. With every bedroom carefully designed for comfort with premium vi-spring beds, Jacuzzi spa baths plus free Wi-Fi and flat screen televisions.

To make your stay extra special, guests enjoy full complimentary access to Haven Spa at our sister hotel - just a couple of minutes away by car. It’s a place to unwind your mind and reinvigorate your body. With one-on-one spa pampering, a fully equipped gym and swimming pools to float away in.

This boutique hotel offers a stunning modern alternative, with a critically acclaimed bar and restaurant including alfresco dining, stunning lounge areas offering light refreshing interiors, 38 elegant and beautifully appointed bedrooms and access to our sister hotel’s leisure club and spa facilities  – all of this and an unrivalled view of Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island – magical.
