Stayed here for one night whilst attending an event in Poole. I'd chosen this hotel as it was walking distance to the event we attended - wasn't disappointed there - a ten minute walk to Poole Stadium.
There doesn't seem to be a huge choice of hotels in central Poole, and I'd not normally book a 'budget' type hotel - but was very pleased with the standard and cleanliness of the rooms and public areas. Facilities are basic I guess, but all quite modern and the rooms a decent size.
Friendly staff checked us in efficiently and we were made to feel welcome. I guess the only odd thing is the check-in staff running the bar. Occasionally had to wait a while for drinks whilst they performed check-in - but really not a huge issue.
Some reviews mention problems with breakfast... Well it is basic and not a huge choice - but it was a whole lot better than the breakfast I was once served in another 'budget' hotel chain.
Plenty of onsite parking, so we had no problems parking.
Overall - for what you pay - I think it is very good value and would not hesitate in recommending it or staying there again.
