Stayed two nights and it was long enough. You certainly get what you pay for. However, having said that, the room was very clean including the bed linen. The bed was really uncomfortable. There are no complementary facilities to talk of. Its name says it all - Budget!

Room Tip: Ideal for a single night only. Take toiletries, drinks etc with you.

Excellent reception from Charlotte on arrival and all aspects of this budget sector hotel were flawless: hygiene factors, decor, room, shower, coffee ...

What impressed me most was the flexibility and discretion accorded the team. The relaxed, absolute, yet humorous manner in which the damage levy or deposit was communicated to groups of young men arriving to party in Southampton by Quita was a lesson in diplomacy. It should have been filmed for training purposes.

Only drawback was that there was no drinking water provided. room can stuffy at time in summers, so adviceable to keep the windows open

The service from the staff was great.

But the standard of the hotel i found to be poor. Obviously being a budget hotel we didn't expect too much, but mold on the ceiling and dried blood on the bunk bed was just a little extreme to be acceptable as it was only budget accommodation.

We missed breakfast by half hour. We wasn't verbally told nor was their any information to state when it finished but staff dealt with us and were really nice about it.

Free wifi was great
Good location

We stayed here one night and prepayed for the breakfast which was healthy and good value. The eating area was small but adequate near the reception area. There was a variety of cereals, bread, croissants, fruit , preserves and cold meat, as well as juices, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. It was a buffet and excellent value.
Parking costs £20 at the barrier for 24 hours or £6 through the hotel which is a good deal.

The Ibis Budget Hotel in Southampton does exactly as it describes. Provides good accommodation at a very affordable price. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are comfortable, and the location was perfect for us, especially with the parking provided.
