Located conveniently by an underpass and near a coach servicing depot, the HIE in Poole delivers in most departments. Go in the door, and, frankly, you could be anywhere in the country, but I guess that's the point. Room - fine. Internet - OK, but occasionally a bit slow. TV - was definitely a TV, and it had channels on...

Stayed here for one night for a friends wedding. Typical HI Express. Clean and comfortable with limited breakfast. Fast check in,good wifi but as ever the real let down is the noise from inside and out. Reversing lorries beeping away late at night and early morning so if your a light sleeper expect a disturbed night. Why can't HI make...

Perfectly fine for a one night stay while visiting area for a family party. Very handy if going to the The Lighthouse centre for arts & the Dolphin Shopping Centre. Not too far from the Quay either & ferries to Brownsea Island. Only disappointment was no bacon for breakfast .

Booked this hotel as a treat for my partner to make travel time less from a function. Seemed like good location, especially for the lighthouse. Easy to find and parking was readily available at $10. Room was ok with coffee and tea making facilities, bathroom had shower. Standard stuff. Breakfast was included in the price. However, the room had a...

My wife and I had been planning a weekend away in Poole in Feb for a little while as we were going to a show in the Lighthouse. We were greeted at check-in by Natalie who was very nice and gave us directions to the Lighthouse and restaurants on the Quay. When we got to our first room, it was...

On Arriving at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised nice open grounds plenty of parking and cheap too, from the outside it does not look too bad. However having had issues with my room such as poor mattress, slow service and lack of any heating in the room. I asked to speak to the GM Raj Lama, the team member...

The Hotel is easy to find in the town centre. About ten minutes walk from railway station and the sea front. Plenty of parking in the hotel car park. The foyer is spacious and leads on to the cafe/bar/restaurant area which is large, comfortable and clean. Check-in staff fast, helpful and friendly. Room on the third floor was easily large...

Was in Poole on business. Checked in late (11pm) and was dealt with by Bill, very friendly. I couldn't figure out how to put the heating up in my room and he had another duvet sent up straight away. Good service. Was out by 6.30am. There was a nice selection of mini croissants and pain au chocolate on the buffet,...

The hotel feels a little tired. Staff were good and helpful. Not sure why you have to pay for parking, surely as a guest they should give you this for free. Lighting in the room was really bad and dark, because of the blue curtains etc... you look ill when looking in the mirror and it is difficult to do...

Greeted by really friendly staff, fast check in, informed of breakfast times and where to go, also how to use the room key card, all very useful. Very clean room and bathroom. Choice of hard or soft pillows. Comfy bed, good nights sleep. Public areas very clean. We stayed three nights, using Poole as a base to tour Dorset .
