About Reflections

Reflections is a luxurious apartment in a desirable waterfront location on Poole Harbour. Perfect for couples looking for somewhere special, it combines the standards and service of a 5-star hotel with the sense of sanctuary and space of a private home. Reflections is on the fourth floor of the illustrious Dolphin Quays complex and only a few minutes walk from Poole's waterfront bars and restaurants.

Poole is a fantastic town with more than enough to keep every visitor happy. It has the largest natural harbour in Europe, and the quay is always busy with pleasure boats and fishing vessels going about their business. Spend an hour on a guided tour of the harbour, or take a two-hour return boat trip to Swanage to get a superb view of the magnificent Jurassic Coast. A busy port also means delicious fresh seafood, and there are many restaurants serving fish and shellfish caught in waters you can probably see from your table.

A high point of any Poole holiday is a visit to Brownsea Island. It is one of the few places in the south of England where you can see red squirrels, there are some pleasant woodland walks, and you might be fortunate enough to see some of Poole Harbour’s resident seals on the boat trip. On the mainland, Sandbanks is a pristine stretch of golden beach which has had Blue Flag status for nearly 30 years. It is extremely popular, particularly during summer, but Branksome Chine and Studland Bay are both quieter, though no less beautiful, options, as is Corfe. There are also beautiful beaches at Bournemouth and Swanage. If you do not feel like lying on the sand then you can stretch your legs at Upton Country Park or Compton Park, or on the South West Coast Path which runs for 630 miles around the edge of Dorset and Cornwall between Poole to Minehead.

If you want the beauty of the south coast without the noise and crowds of larger resorts like Bournemouth, Poole has it. You can walk from the apartment to excellent shops, bars, restaurants and clubs, or enjoy a peaceful evening à deux as you sip wine on your balcony and watch the twinkling harbour lights.
