Check in was fast and friendly, you have enter your car details on a terminal at check in to avoid a parking fine, parking is charged to your bill at £5. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, I had a good nights sleep. I ate in the bar, the food and service were good. The hotel is... More

Very clean hotel - room/bathroom spotless and bed very comfortable.Takes about 20/25 mins to walk to ferry port but if you have luggage would suggest taxi (about £7) rather than walking it through town centre.Good bar and nice outside area to take your drinks. If you want a full English breakfast I would suggest you look elsewhere. They call it... More

Stayed recently for one night which was about enough as the location is quite a walk to the Quay - even longer if you take a wrong turn! Not up to the standard of many HI Express hotels we've stayed in as far as service and condition goes. A badly cracked glass for juice and broken toaster at breakfast didn't... More

Stayed for three nights whilst visiting Poole on holiday. The hotel service was efficient at all times with all the staff being exceptionally polite and helpful. The rooms and all public areas were very clean and tidy. We booked a "Superior" room which we found to be adequate in size and about the same level of space and comfort as... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, good parking and convenient location for channel ferries. Mediocre breakfast. Avoid rooms overlooking the front car park as the road noise is heavy. Executive rooms are more modern, but avoid any rooms near the elevator unless you want to listen to 'doors opening'....'doors closing' all night.

Traveling from Morgan Porth on damp drizzling day I needed to make a stop after some 270kms. The hotel is not easy to find due to many curly parallel roads leading in and around the overpass of the railway line . The sign should be out on the edge of the main broad not on the service road. The local... More

Lovely convenient place to stay before the Jersey ferry. Clean and comfortable. Staff warm and friendly. A bit of a walk to the quay but close enough. Nice and close to the ferry port. The shower was a bit feeble but nice facilities generally. Reception open 24 hours and bar available late.

A perfectly acceptable place to stay if one is waiting for a ferry to Jersey. Friendly staff and a bar that sells talisker! The room was spacious and well stocked with water and walkers cheese and onion crisps. The only criticism would be the low flow of the shower.

My wife and I have Just returned from a four night stay at this hotel and the best comment I can make is "it was alright". When booking (in advance) I had asked for a room close to the amenities, and on a lower floor because I am disabled and unable to walk very far. When arriving our room was... More

The building is not very inviting from the outside, probably because it was constructed some time ago Facilities are what you would expect and the staff are friendly and helpful The interior is starting to look a bit dated and the breakfast option is not as extensive as some of the other local hotels that would compete with this establishment...
