Dear Traceyr793, Thank you for your kind score and feedback reflecting your recent stay with us. I am delighted to see we could accommodate your early arrival so you were able to enjoy the rest of your day. Parking is charged at £6 per 24hrs for our hotel guests however this is due to the facilities being privately owned hence the charge. I have also passed on your kind comments to Raj. I am pleased to read your stay with us was to your satisfaction from start to finish and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Jack Davies - Senior Guest Service Manager

Our experience with Holiday Inn generally doesn't vary and Poole is no exception. A nice sized room that was very clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast spread that's included in the price was sufficient. If you're vegan you can still have a

is there parking available
yes the hotel has a reasonably large car park, but depending on your accommodation deal, there is a charge to use it. We paid it as part of our room deal and it was great because the hotel is situated very close to the town center so once we parked the car we pretty much walked everywhere.

Hi, how much is parking, per day, and ease of access for kids ?
Hi I think the parking was £5 per day. The access into town is not great as it is about a 10-15 minute walk. But it is a safe walk with kids.

My impression is that this is a commercial hotel primarily attracting professional people and weekenders, not quite a romantic getaway!
