Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel has very friendly staff, is clean and functional. The one downside is a poor breakfast selection (No bacon for example) The location is not the best for the Quay but is good for shopping (Although Poole is very poor for shopping)

After staying at a Holiday Inn in Leamington Spa last year I have to say im disappointed in the difference at Holiday Inn Express Poole, the standard of breakfast at Leamington Spa was on another level full English and plenty of choice to be told at Poole it was continental breakfast but sausage and scrambled egg and beans which the...

Although this was quite a basic hotel, it has all the essentials that we required. It was clean, the room was airy and not hot, and it was not noisy when we opened the window. Being close to the park was an added advantage that allowed us to go for a run near the seafront. The staff were friendly and...

Rooms are very well designed but no room safe. Shower room toilet no bath. Firm comfortable bed and good air conditioning. Cold breakfast very good, but hot breakfast just scrambled egg sausage and beans. Clean and plenty of space. Friendly helpful staff. All you really need for a short break.

We have stayed here many times with no problem. Unfortunately this time we had to change rooms because the electrical sockets were'nt working and I couldnt use a hairdryer. The room we moved to had exactly the same problem plus the bed and pillows were rock hard. Neither of us had any sleep and consequently this ruined the next day...

Located very near town centre and close to Bus Station (with regular buses to Bournemouth, Swanage, Wareham etc). Room was very comfy, with extra pull out sofa bed (had a very good night's sleep on this). Plenty of clothes hanging, drawers. Big shower in clean bathroom. Air con/heating and window that opened, so able to set room conditions to suit....

I paid extra for a room advertised as "Superior" but having stayed at many Holiday Inn Express hotels, I couldn't tell the difference other than the inflated price. And watch out, only 2 tea bags left in the room, I suggest you get more from reception before getting into pjs to watch telly in bed! Oh yes, and the bed...

The hotel is well positioned for Poole town centre. Upon arrival the receptionist (Jack) was very helpful and told us everything we needed to know. The room was pretty basic and let's hope you like the colour scheme blue !! Below the surface it's pretty dated and bodge job diy work is never far away. Breakfast was really poor. I...

I really can't find a fault with this HIEX as it's one of the better ones (in my opinion) that we've stayed at and the staff we encountered were all friendly. Our room was facing the main road and I was a bit worried about the noise level but we heard nothing so we both slept well, and no doubt...

Located conveniently by an underpass and near a coach servicing depot, the HIE in Poole delivers in most departments. Go in the door, and, frankly, you could be anywhere in the country, but I guess that's the point. Room - fine. Internet - OK, but occasionally a bit slow. TV - was definitely a TV, and it had channels on...
