This hotel is great. The location is superb linked to Poole Harbour, a 5 minute walk. It is also only 5 minute walk to a lovely park with lakes etc. If you do want to go shopping, it is only a 3 minute walk, however, shops aren't great and I wouldn't recommend wasting time in the shops. Poole Harbour is... More

This is the second time we stayed - the team here are a great asset - they are so helpful, exceeding expectations. My son and I cycled to the hotel and the staff specially locked our bikes away inside so they were safe. Pleasant bar. Breakfast a bit mad in the morning but it filled a hole. Room lovely and...

Good location, clean and quiet rooms. Chaotic breakfast set up, with plates a rarity, but I would consider it again. Additional £5 for 24h car parking, which is very cheap in Poole, but still grates a bit given the cost of the rooms.

Very pleasant, plenty of parking, helpful staff. Let down by the breakfast but then Holiday Inn Express breakfasts are never good. We booked later than friends and ended up paying £50 for our night's stay.

We stayed in this Hotel in the first of week in July this year. I was not feeling well and Robert (the manager) got us all the details for the local doctors and hospital. He was most helpful, professional and understanding in this situation. We would also like to add that the other hotel staff were very helpful and friendly... More

I have to admit that holiday Inns are my preferred hotel of choice when requiring an overnight stay. I stayed previously at Poole and the experience was spoilt by a noisy air-con unit in the bedroom. To the credit of the hotel the manager extended an invitation to return with a discounted price. We did take up the offer and... More

After a long day of cycling they were really helpful with helping us store the bikes. The girl behind the desk went out of her way to help us in all kinds of ways like bringing up food to us, even though they dont advertise room service. Room was comfortable and just as expected.

It's been my third time staying in the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, even though I was late for breakfast, they served it out of hours. Nice receptionist and manager Robert. For sure I will visit that place again and I strongly recommend it.
