“Great shopping”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

I live not far from here so use it quite a lot,some nice shops plenty of known names,some nice places to eat or have coffee feel very safe in centre because lots of security around they soon get rid of rowdy youths so makes it very pleasant

“Plenty but the same as everywhere”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

There is nothing different to The Dolphin Centre as there is to every town centre around the country. It does seem quite dated now so will hopefully have some investment in the next few years.

It was clean and tidy which was more than could be said for the rest of Poole's shopping area.

“Shopping Centre”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Ok centre with all usual outlet stores. If its raining and want to while away a couple of hours ( or let the wife spend some money) good place to go.
Downside is that it has taken all the shops off the high street which looks desolated and run down

“Clean shopping centre”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Very clean ,very basic shopping centre. Handy if your on your way to train or bus station. Not really any specialist shops just everyday shops. I don't really come away to shop but like to have a quick look round to see if there is anything different but here there wasn't. Like any other shopping centre nothing interesting.
