Stayed for three nights in a standard room which was very good the only exception was the bathroom. We had a problem with the sink not running away properly and the shower ran hot and cold. We felt that the standard of the bathroom compared to the room was under par. We used the pool which was very nice even...

This was a business trip, but had a really nice night in this hotel. Food was excellent, including a great breakfast and the leisure facilities were superb. A decent size pool, great gym and a fitness studio where I even managed to join a spin class in the morning! Even though the restaurant was really busy in the morning, the...

I stayed here with a group of friends. The weekend was outstanding value for money. We had a great time. Our deal included breakfast, lunch and dinner and all were of a very good standard with super service . The rooms were very clean and bright, I slept on possibly the most comfortable sofa bed ever! It was very quiet,...

We booked the Solent Spa hotel for a family break as we really like the New Forest area. We weren't able to find anything nearby and found this place. We're very unsure regarding kids etc. From the moment you step in gazing at the enchanting chandeliers. You step into a beautifully run hotel, very family friendly- generous sized rooms that...

We took ourselves off for a SPA day at the Solent Hotel as its pretty near to us and have been there before. We did not stay but were there just for the SPA and facilities. We started with a swim in the pool which is all normal and of an OK size not crowded and the couple of children...

Not sure if this counts as a review because in the end we cancelled our bookings. I had a team of five attending a business meeting locally. The Solent was expensive but convenient, and facilities looked good. We cancelled because despite the price, the rooms were only available for check in after 7.00pm and check out before 7.00am. That might...

I would like to make it clear from the outset I'm not reviewing the spa facilities here as I have never used them. I'm solely reviewing the room I stayed in. We stayed here as part of a wedding that took place at this hotel. The wedding itself was truly awesome! Both the staff, chefs and wedding organizers done a...
