I have stayed in this hotel back in February 2012. It was a pleasant surprise indeed and I would like to share about it
My ground floor room, at outer building of the hotel, was clean and with very comfortable bed.
Staff was very helpful, polite and professional. Superb breakfast. Evening time parking space was available. Thank you.

Room Tip: Rooms at the outer building where very nice.

Positioned on a main road entering city centre, near traffic lights. Constant noise (even into the early hours) from cars and trailer trucks (going down to the docks with their loads). Made worse by being close to traffic lights. 24 hour delivery Pizza Hut across the road, constant noise of slamming car doors and engine revs from delivery guys.

Rooms in the "annexe" are hot in summer, the ancient wood sash windows are painted shut and can barely be opened, but you are subject to the traffic noise outside even if you manage it!

The beds are not comfortable. The mattresses could be in any state as they are covered by soft lumpy mattress toppers (so unhygenic).

Give yourself plenty of time for breakfast. The dining room (too small) gets full very quickly and you are asked to wait in reception until a table is free and reset.

Never again. Tried the Premier Inn at West Quay the second trip.....brilliant (and cheaper)!

Stayed for one night before our cruise in July and used the car parking facilities for 2 weeks. The room was clean and comfortable with all facilities we needed. The breakfast was really nice and the staff friendly and helpful. With the location of the hotel to the centre of Southampton we managed to have a good few hours shopping before getting a taxi to our ship (£7.50). We will certainly be using this hotel again should we be booking a cruise and require an overnight stay!

We stayed one night at this hotel on 4th Aug. There is ample parking which is free if you are not leaving the car there whilst on a cruise. Although the room (24) could do with decorating it was clean and had all the facilities needed, it was really hot though, despite the outside temperature not been that high. As pointed out on checkout we could have asked for a fan but it was late when we returned from our evening out and we had thought the room would cool with the window open but it didnt. The hotel is a 20 minute walk to the city but it is an easy flat walk passing through a small park. There is a nice pub/restaurant ' The Cowherds' just 5 minutes walk up the road (heading out of the city) food was lovely but you best book on a Saturday, we were lucky as we went early and only 2 of us. The hotel breakfast was very nice only criticism is that the bacon was kept warm too long and had gone hard but everything else was very good. This hotel is right next door to a Travel Lodge and I think it was the limited parking there that made me book the Elizabeth House Hotel and seeing is particular Travel Lodge I was glad we hadn't booked it - it looks like an old tower block of flats! I would definatley consider this hotel again of I needed to visit Southampton.

Room Tip: Room 24 is on the ground floor but has 3 steps right inside the door going up to the room and bathro...

Stayed briefly overnight with our daughter to attend her graduation ceremony at Southampton University. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had our evening meal at the hotel and the food was home-cooked and the portions very generous. Breakfast the following morning was very good. If ever we need accommodation in Southampton in the future we would certainly re-book.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter especially in the hot weather when windows need to be open.

My mother and I both found the hotel staff extremely helpful and friendly. We have stayed in other hotels in the area and this is our favourite; we will definitely be returning again. I left a rather expensive item of clothing in the room and a very helpful member of staff assured me he would post it to me free of charge, which he did straight away. I thought this was excellent customer service. We had a very nice clean room. The only minor problem was that the room was a little too hot. However this was during an unprecedented period of hot weather.
