Stayed two nights in the College to do a course. I could not fault the place. It may lack the cushioned ambience of a posh hotel. but from first entering the place it was outstanding. Staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful. Everywhere was clean to an almost surgical standard, and the furnishings extremely comfortable. Every room has an outstanding view of Poole Harbour. There is a welcoming cafe-bar, and a restaurant, both serving very good food. The cooked breakfasts were first class.
I was on a course, but my wife wandered into Poole centre which is only minutes away, and also quite interesting, though I gather that for "proper" shopping Bournemouth is better.
