Harbourside Guest House

Exterior shot of Harbourside Guest located in Poole


We are a small, friendly, family run guest house located close to local amenities.

All rooms, some of which are ensuite, have comfortable beds, colour televisions, tea and coffee making facilities and free WIFI.

Places to visit include Hamworthy Park which has something to offer to visitors of all ages.  It nestles the shores of Poole Harbour and is therefore protected from the open sea.  The beach has a safe, gentle slope into the water and from there you can observe magnificent views of the Purbeck Hills and Corfe Castle.  The beach backs on to a beautiful park and recreation areas with children’s play apparatus together with a large purpose-built, well-maintained paddling pool.  There is an all year round café located in the park.

Harbourside Guest House is 5 to 10 minutes from Poole Town Centre by car and approximately a 10 minute walk from Poole Quay with its stunning views across Poole Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world.  From here, enjoy a ferry trip around the Harbour or to Brownsea Island, part of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Stroll along the Quay and watch the fishing boats and yachts sail by or visit the Waterfront Museum to learn more about Poole’s fascinating history.  Or just relax outside one of the many bars, restaurants and cafes lining the Quay and watch the world go by! Ferries also run regularly from Poole Ferry Port to France and the Channel Islands. 

A short 15 minute drive from Harbourside Guest House, visit the stunning Sandbanks Beach with its fine golden sands and clean blue water, winner of the European Blue Flag for a number of years having consistently met the high standards of management and cleanliness.

There is only one entrance to the guest house.  There are 2 small steps through the entrance into the house. There is a small flight of stairs leading to the bedrooms.
Public Areas - Hall, Stairs, Landing, Corridors etc. The dining room is located on the ground floor of the property. The bedrooms are located on the first floor.

We have a conservatory for the use of our guests.  This is located adjacent to the dining room and overlooks the garden.
