My partner and I stayed here for a night and found it to be reasonably new or refurbished Holiday Inn. Room was reasonable size, clean, usual complimentary coffee, shower gel, etc. The only thing we found was it was quite cold at night - despite there being an AC unit which was on the heat setting at 28 degrees! I...

Overall a good overnight stay. Quite shocked to have to pay for parking but hey ho, it seems to be the way of the world these days and it was only a fiver. Worried a little about noise from the hallway as we were right next to the lift but slept like babies as everyone obviously settles down early in...

Good price, no frills hotel. Excellent location for Dolphin Centre (although that's not very exciting) and the Lighthouse Theatre. Clean and comfortable, good bathroom and breakfast included. Fine for a short stay, not many places to eat nearby but OK if you are happy to walk to the Old Town / harbour area.

Haven't stayed here for years and was reasonably surprised on the improvements. I stayed in the superior room on the 3rd floor and everything was fine. I guess it would have been nice to have some drawers to hide your stuff but everything is open. the room was clean, fairly modern, good internet connection (for video link), breakfast was basic...

A flying Visit to Poole and where else would I book but another Holiday Inn. Once again from booking to check out it was a great experience. The room although adjacent to reception was quiet, well presented and stocked with tea coffee etc, More of which is always available from the reception. The bed, although a little soft for my...

I like HI Express. The inclusive breakfast and Wi-Fi usually make it the best value of the lodge type accommodation. Large room. Comfy bed. Decent telly. Great shower. Good breakfast. But awful Wi-Fi. Couldn't get anything in my room and had to buy the premium for £2 per night. I usually buy Wi-Fi at trace lodge so didn't mind. But...

Lovely location good and clean room and friendly staff. Had to pay 5.00 per day to park which I think is not right as it's not a city hotel. Breakfast is standard but nice coffee. Walking distance to Poole town centre and arts centre.

Stayed one night, booked a superior room, but was very basic and bed was double not king size like premier inn, close to Poole, however after looking forward to visiting Poole again was let down by how run down it is now. Staff at holiday inn would get 10/10 along with breakfast but could do better on the rooms.

Stayed two nights. Plenty of spaces in car park but charge of £5 per night. Reception staff pleasant and helpful. Room was spacious and clean. Flat screen tv with similar channels to other hotels I have stayed in. Looked as advertised. Walk-in shower with plenty of towels and hand and shower gels. Not luxurious but functional and pleasant. Carpets looked...
