Excellent location and friendly staff
The staff, the cleanliness,
Good stay but marred slightly by the food on offer and a saggy bed. The place was clean and fairly comfortable. Modern looking. The staff were fantastic and really helpful especially when the swipe cards didn't work which was often so it took ages to get into our room at times. Overall a comfortable stay in a hotel right near the main shopping centre of Poole.

hotel in need of refurb, matress soft and lumpy..
short.. breakfast poor.. cooked, self service but no bacon and only scrambled egg! Bedroom smelled of smoke, noisy from road, mattress soft but lumpy and tilted backwards, shower was weak. Extra payment for car parking!! Wi Fi was free. A bit too far to walk to the quay but bus depot across the road.

Fine Hotel, helpful staff, but almost missed it !
Very helpful staff
Shared room with one other male. Perfectly acceptable. We did have trouble finding the place, but locals new it well. I couldn't get up in time for breakfast, while the hotel staff insisted that it should have been and my friend took advantage. Hotel staff were particularly helpful !
