Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KPR1 Another Nice Stay, but Expensive
Good Location, easy walk to Poole Marina and Restaurants.
Usually stay here when in the area for business and leisure breaks, however at this time of the year the price is now very expensive for this type of hotel and by now adding the car park fee it will now make me consider other alternatives when in the area. Shame as I have stayed here many times over the past.
Staff good and helpful, buffet breakfast was ok, and area was clean and well maintained.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gpolla2 Beds ok but breakfast poor
The room was to a reasonable standard, although our family room only had 2cups/coffee and one cup dirty . No bacon, tomato or mushroom for breakfast seems perverse.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gilberto Holiday Inn Poole Excellent Holiday Stay
Arrived early (2pm) for a 3pm check-in but we are allowed to check-in as our room is ready. No fuss check-in.
Hotel's quite clean as experienced with other Holiday Inn hotels we've stayed before. Room's quite nice and big (family of four).
Hotel is just a 10 minute walk to Dolphin Shopping Centre and a good 20-25 minutes to The Quay.
Standard breakfast refilled quickly by attentive staff especially TJ.
Parking: Just be aware that they charge £5 per 24 hrs, not really quite sure about this as we have been away most of the day during our stay. Should be less for HIExpress guests???

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lightness Dissapointing experience
I have stayed in much better and cheaper hotels than Poole Holiday Inn Express. Most of the staff did not understand English or very polite. Poor lights in room and bathroom, slow water flow from shower and taps, Lots of improvments need here little things matter Just basic things, Would I stay here again..NO
Car park charge too..Why? not value for money
iI expected better form holiday Inn

Great location. Average room but quite highly priced. Breakfast a let down with lack of choice with watered down juice and hot chocolate. Would not book to stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by veronica20 Cleanliness!
This holiday inn is ideal for central Poole near to transport links.
Not the cleanest of Holiday Inns and the linen had holes in.
The bathroom needed attention with reguards to cleanliness.
Not to the standard we usually find within the Holiday Inn chain.
The complimentary tea/coffee facilities in our room had no tea or milk and had to go to reception to get some (not ideal after a long journey).
The staff when about were helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KAF12 A very convenient HI Express
Stayed here for two nights with my wife and son. Everything was ready at check-in (including a cot in the room) and the process was smooth and efficient. All the staff were very polite and welcoming and we had no problems with our stay.
The location is good to walk into town, Poole park and all the way to the sea front.
We would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adakonrad Great place to stay!
Fantastic stay - incredibly warm welcome by desk stuff - big thank you to receptionist Karolina who provided us with all information we needed, very professional, polite and kind person.
Room very clean, perfect temperature thanks to air condition in the room. Room big enough for family with 2 kids. Comfortable bed. Dark enough at night, no noise even with window open.
One thing I would like to mention is the soap in bathroom - it has funny way of squirting in wrong direction and it ended up on my top rather than hands...
Very tasty breakfast, good choice of food. Nice coffee and selection of teas.
Overall fantastic place to stay and we will visit again for sure!
