In April 2023, the four-star boutique Hotel du Vin Poole fully refurbished its guest bedrooms, suites and bathrooms to refresh the décor with nautical nods that ooze quiet luxury and sophistication. Originally built in 1776, the refurbishment blends original features with signature Hotel du Vin panache. The 38 rooms found within this impressive Georgian-style building include the addition of a bold colour scheme blending statement orange hues with relaxing blue, teal and grey tones that speak to the hotel’s seaside location in a modern way.
The newly updated décor embraces texture and warmth while taking inspiration from Poole’s maritime heritage and its popularity as a seaside holiday resort. Many rooms feature whimsical beach hut print wallpaper, with artwork plus accessories featuring seagulls, shellfish and nautical motifs informed by the area's culture. Featuring comfortable handsprung mattresses, fine Egyptian linen, deep baths for relaxing drench showers, plasma TVs and air conditioning, each room comes with all the little luxuries expected, including thick fluffy towels and robes. The property is ideal for romantic pre-wedding getaways or those looking to tie the knot here.
