“Excellent hotel with amazing breakfasts!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed at The Old House Hotel the night before collecting relatives from Southampton docks after their cruise. We were welcomed by a very friendly lady who showed us up to our room, which was clean and tidy. We had a drink in the downstairs bar and were served by a very friendly Bar man and got chatting with the locals. We went out to the local Fullers pub for our main meal and to watch the England game. The highlight of our stay has to be the amazing breakfast! Definitely one of the best we have both ever tasted, and enjoyed hot drinks and orange juice in the pretty garden afterwards in the sunshine. All in all an excellent stay and looking forward to returning!

We stayed a couple of nights in an Executive Garden room which was very spacious, as was the adjoining bathroom. An excellent power shower, which is a big plus in my view.
I enjoyed an excellent full English breakfast, while my wife chose from the varied menu. I did include scrambled egg one morning, and know it’s a simple item to cook, but it tasted very soft and light and was excellent.
A very good choice on the evening menu which included chateaubriand and two superb desserts. We couldn’t fault the meals, and the only disappointment was that the kitchen was closed on the Sunday evening and we couldn’t enjoy a second meal there.
Very friendly and helpful staff throughout, from the initial booking to final payment, and we would definitely stay again and look forward to enjoying further meals in the restaurant.

Stayed with family for one night and it was a pleasant stay in a comfortable room. The hotel is absolutely beautiful from the outside and is decorated well inside. The bar served fairly expensive, but good quality, drinks and had a welcoming atmosphere. The breakfast was tasty, and cooked to order, although perhaps a bigger selection of fresh fruit and granolas would have been nice. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed April 2014

Bought a voucher from living social, chateaubriand and two glasses of prosseco. Steak was amazing and did not need steak knife to cut. Bought starters of scallops, wow yummy, but hubby not so happy with chicken starter as a bit dry. Overall really like this place and will definitely go back. Staff are very lovely and welcoming.

We had a high quality unbooked lunch at The Old House. The restaurant is in the beautiful setting of The Old House's garden room. I have long regarded The Old House as one of my favourite, semi-formal venues. The welcome and attentiveness of the staff is assured.

I was admittedly a little nervous about staying after the previous reviews which said that the Living Social guests were treated a little differently. I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the food was excellent. While the offer was for a chateaubriand for two the hotel were most accommodating of the fact that I am a vegetarian and offered a fillet steak for my partner which was delicious. The room was spotlessly clean and as shown on the pictures. The only downside: The room's shutters which didn't completely block out the light from the streetlamps and the patchy repair works to the ceilings in the room/ halls which I guess are part and parcel of being in such a beautiful old townhouse.

Thank you for our stay: I would highly recommend the offer and this hotel/restaurant!
