2. Holiday Inn Express Poole (from USD 86)

The Holiday Inn Express might be a big hotel to look at while traveling, but they really are quite the accommodators. The workers are always so nice and willing to help in any way that they can, and if an extra pillow or blanket is needed, they send them up in record time. The beds are super cozy and always made up just right for the guests of the night.

This hotel also has a great location since it’s right next to Poole’s ferry port, which a lot of travelers use to get to where they need to go. It cuts back on the cost, and if renting a car, the gas tank doesn’t need to be filled so much, so there’s money to be spent elsewhere. There is also a great variety of shops and restaurants in walking distance to the hotel.

3. Hotel Du Vin Poole (from USD 169)

A little more pricey than other hotels in the area, a one-night stay is 180 USD. But it’s well worth it for those that don’t mind luxury.

There is a huge shower in most rooms, with a sliding door instead of a curtain to close.
