    Good overnight stay

    Last minute booking when decided to stay over in Poole. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient, our room had a lovely view, bed was comfortable and pillows were perfect also shower was very good. Cofid 19 taken seriously with all measures in place. Had dinner in-house which was enjoyable as was the breakfast. Drinks were very favourably priced.

    Support the RNLI by staying in their great hotel

    Nice place to stay - thoughtfully done & not "down-to-a-price" like some of the big chain hotels. Good quality fittings, toiletries, consumables etc. Very supportive bed & choice of fluffy pillows. Only complaint was that the room was a bit warm (in January!) so we slept with the window open both nights. RNLI theme runs throughout the building - references are all over the place, but it's not overdone. Also a nice feeling that by staying there you are supporting such an important cause. Onsite restaurant is impressively cheap but perfectly decent - we ate there both nights as well as the complimentary breakfasts. Road layout recently changed so a bit confusing but we made it in the end. Pro-tip - there is a hidden footpath to Asda!

    Not a college dormitory, but a fabulous hotel.

    Just wow. This is an excellent hotel with beautiful rooms with sea views. Great facilities, fabulous breakfast. Not the college dormitory I thought I might get. Parking onsite was included in my package, everything was so easy going.
