We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Poole overnight on our way to the Channel Islands.
The room was clean and comfortable with very good facilities. The early morning "continental breakfast" was a bit limited, but we assumed that not all the options had been put out by the time that we were leaving the hotel at 05:45 for the early ferry.
Good service and good value. We would stay again.
Note: There seems to be little "definition" between the lounge/reception/bar areas and the sofa seating could be updated. Not every guest wishes to have very large television screens all showing (it seems) different programmes and all audible at the same time.More
