In the short story The Under Dog, Miss Cole is the manageress of the Mitre Hotel at Abbots Cross, near Mon Repos, the residence of the Astwell family. Poirot spoke to her in the course of his investigation into the death of Sir Reuben Astwell. Miss Cole told him that one of her guests Captain Humphrey Naylor had a habit of taking walks at night after dinner. He had also stayed at the hotel about a fortnight earlier.

Miss Cole is not featured in the film adaptation of the story in Series 5 of ITV's Agatha Christie's Poirot. In this adaptation, Naylor stayed at the golf club, as did Poirot and Hastings.
