We stayed at the Novotel Southampton for 9 nights over Christmas. Overall, it's a nice hotel - the reception, bar and restaurant area all look to have been recently refurbished, and were always clean. Reception area has an iMac for guest use, free for 20 mins.
The breakfast that came with our room was fine - the dining room has a buffet of the usual breakfast foods, cereals, fruit, hot breakfast, muffins etc. Room service dinner however, was HORRIBLE. The steak was inedible - it tasted like it had been cooked in burnt cheese. The rest of the dinner while edible, was definitely not worth the price we paid. I would highly recommend NOT eating at the hotel, except for breakfast. There is a TGI Fridays next door, which sadly, is much better.
The rooms were nice enough - clean and comfortable. However we could hear toilets flushing all around us, and when the family above us partied until two in the morning, it took 2 complaints and 2 hours to get staff to ask the to be quiet.
Internet is pricey, but if you pay 10 quid for 24 hours, you get a good range of recent blockbuster films available on the tv. Parking is also expensive, at 3 pound per night. I would give this place an extra half star on top of my rating.
