Welcome to the Antelope Hotel in Poole, Dorset

The Antelope is a famous old coaching house set on the High Street of Poole and has been a popular meeting place throughout the centuries. Situated conveniently for the Quay, the oldest hotel in Poole is still the perfect place to stay or dine, where guests can enjoy the cosy bar and then walk through to discover the hidden treasure of Smuggler’s Restaurant.

Refurbished in October 2013 the Antelope offers 23 comfortable bedrooms, the perfect place to get a great night’s sleep after a busy day enjoying the sites and sounds Poole has to offer.   With a mix of Superior, Family, Double, Twin and Single rooms we can accommodate your needs whether you’re a single traveller on business or a family looking for a weekend break.

Our newly expanded bar area provides a warm and welcoming setting to enjoy delicious food from our menu, or chat and relax with a drink and great company.

During the morning we welcome visitors to the Antelope to come and join us for our great value breakfast, with a hearty selection of hot and cold food available along with illy coffee or tea.

We also offer fantastic facilities for weddings for those planning that special day Click here
