No complaints with either the basic quality of the room and service but with a rack rate of £136 (we paid in excess of £100 for a Saturday night stopover) it seems that the days of finding a reasonably priced hotel are long gone.
This is a basic hotel albeit in Poole but in a business district with stunning views of a flyover, train line and bus station. If it were at the front of Poole harbour with sea views the price could be explained.
The room was fine with a choice of pillows but we found the mattress was extremely firm. The bathroom had a good sized shower. No problems with breakfast and the staff were very pleasant.
By comparison we recently stayed in an excellent 4 star hotel in London for the same price and there is no doubt which was the better value and more comfortable.
