We stayed here on route to the Isle Of Wight. We come from Yorkshire and decided to stop off here and then get a morning ferry night and refreshed. We had a couple of problems and this is the first time we have had any real problems at an Ibis Hotel.
Firstly the key card did not work but this was quickly fixed by reception. The fire alarm went off at 11.45pm. It went off before we left the room and we weren't sure whether to leave the room or not but so tired we went back to bed. The room was very hot and the air conditioning seemed to make no difference. The thermostat said 25C! We opened the windows in the end which did let a bit of a breeze in.
Despite this the hotel was very modern and clean. The room was very clean and provided all that you need. We had breakfast which was very nice and was a help yourself buffet. Very good value for the price. The bed and room was very comfortable apart from the heat. The hotel was quite busy, I guess from people going on a cruise the next day.
Being disabled we have no choice but to travel by car. The hotel is next to a big retail development and so has barriers and parking charges I guess to stop people parking in the hotel and go shopping. Hotel guests are charge £5 which is quite a charge to add to a budget hotel room price.
Overall if you are looking for a hotel in the West Quay area of Southampton or going on a cruise then this is an ideal budget choice. If you are driving then do budget in the £5 charge for parking. I think this is £5 for your whole stay rather than a night though.
