About

Covid-19 update – Please check the website for the most up to date information.

As an award-winning hotel and conference venue, we welcome everyone to come and experience the home of RNLI training.

Wake up to your very own harbour view, overlooking Holes Bay on Dorset’s magnificent south coast. All of our 60 bedrooms offer a home-from-home experience – with full en-suite facilities, double beds and high speed Wifi as standard. 

Designed with our lifesavers in mind, every room also features a study area ideal for reading and writing up notes if you’re staying with us for business…if you can tear your eyes from the sea view!

There’s a powerful atmosphere here at RNLI College. One you won’t encounter anywhere else. One that makes you feel in awe, humbled to be at the home of our lifesaving training.

Just a short walk from Poole Quay you’re perfectly placed to take advantage of Poole’s historic harbour, bars, restaurants and other local attractions.
So whether you stay with us, eat, drink and relax with us, celebrate with us, conference with us or even get married with us, you’ll be helping to make a difference, whatever you do, where every £1 you spend helps save lives at sea so you can feel good about your stay with us.
