The hotel was beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean and tidy. The rooms were spacious and tasteful. Breakfast was varied and excellent, obviously very good quality, the views from the room and the hotels communal areas are different and the general architecture of the building was exquisite.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

Good meeting facilities for business, excellent rooms (rival anything Premier Inn etc can offer, full dining facilities and bar. Great views from rooms. Take in a visit to the college where they train all UK&I lifeboat crews (really fancy wave pool and simulator) and the 'factory' on site where they build the lifeboats

Modern spacious rooms, good service, good position with waterfront views and handy for Poole Quay. The restaurant offers good quality ordinary food - I had cannelloni and my husband had fish and chips. The later was supposed to be with mushy peas which came as a micro-serving! Service mostly was top notch but it became a bit slow in the restaurant.
I discovered that the college only offers rooms to the public on Friday and Saturday nights, it would have saved me some bother sorting out the trip if this had been obvious to me earlier.

Room Tip: Waterfront is great

Dear Janet P,

Thank you for providing feedback following your recent stay with us at the RNLI Training College and I'm pleased to hear that you found many elements of your stay very positive. I'll share your comments regarding the restaurant with my catering team to ensure we address those niggles.

We are the designated facility for training our RNLI Lifeboat Crew and Lifeguards but make any spare capacity available for our supporters and members of the public to use and enjoy. This is certainly not limited to Fridays and Saturdays only as the RNLI College is fully open and available 7 days per week.

Thank you for your support for the RNLI Saving Lives at Sea and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the foreseeable future.

Kind regards
Ewan Steele
