Elizabeth House Hotel
Ranked #4 of 25 Hotels in Southampton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Staff are always pleasant and courteous.
Rooms are fine, comfortable, well maintained and clean
Location is good for the University, Town Centre, and the Common
Splendid breakfast included in room price. Special note - these people know how to poach eggs - even so called major hotels get this wrong.
They even cater for guests who have a dog.

Fab little place. Clean, comfy and lovely helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again if in the area and would recommend. The one and only downside for us was the food in Lizzie's which seemed to be mainly heated up straight from the freezer rather than homemade, and every dish (even the curry) is served with a huge dollop of coleslaw! Very close to Southampton Common and around a 15/20 minute walk into the town. Overall very good value and an enjoyable stay.

Only time for one night B&B at The Elizabeth House Hotel for a quick visit to look around Southampton. The hotel is set back from the main road, has ample free parking and bus stops to the city centre just outside. Made very welcome on arrival but disappointed that there was not a lift nor an offer made to take our bags up the rather steep and narrow staircase to our room. Our room was a good size, lots of storage space, big TV, very comfy bed, full-size bath and a modern shower. This back room was quiet but was very warm and we resorted to having the room and bathroom windows open to keep cool during the night. The floor was also in need of investigation as there were dips in the carpet and loud creaking as you walked across it. Did not eat in Lizzie's Bistro which is in the cellar but the Lizzie "free room" service of toast and pate was delivered on time, delicious and a generous portion. Breakfast was a real treat offering a splendid selection, all served promptly and with a smile. My comments are observations rather than moans because our one night stay was enjoyable and judging by the number of other guests they felt the same way as we did.

Room Tip: Get a quiet back room, the main road at the front is noisy. Room could be too hot. No lift at this h...

We had a lovely stay and felt welcome and pampered. The location was perfect for our visit to the university, and the hotel is convenient to a bus stop, and only minutes from the train station by bus. Our room (#2) was quite large, the beds were comfortable, and the sheets were crisp and clean. The breakfast was fantastic with a full english cooked to order breakfast, in addition to a very nice assortment of cereals, fruit and spreads (Saintsbury's chocolate orange spread, was a favourite). The cozy restaurant serves good food, which can be enjoyed either in the restaurant, or in your room at no extra charge. The price was extremely reasonable, good value for money. The hotel itself is not fancy, but the service was wonderful, the breakfast was fabulous, and the room was clean and cozy -- we really felt that we received 5-star value at a 2-star price.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear might be quieter. We stayed in room #2 which faced the rear garden and had a large...

Do not stay at room 24 in the elizabeth house hotel in Southampton!!
At 5am the rooms walls start to click so loudly they woke me up,the clicking so bad I just could not sleep at all!!
This lasted from around 5am till gone 6am...clicking pipes in the wall or floor,but too loud to ignore.
If you want a relaxing quiet nights sleep do not go here!!
Ruined my stay here,I'd have been better off paying a taxi £75 to take me home,at least the nights sleep would have been peacefully quiet.

Room Tip: Rooms look great,bed was comfy but the pipe noise in walls unbareable..I can only say do not use roo...

stayed here for 2 nights as was about 1.5 miles from The Brook (a music venue)...front of hotel is only single glazed so can be a little traffic noise at the front. We asked to be changed and was, without question to the rear of the hotel. Ah.. nice n quiet... squeaky floor was a little annoying. The positives were, plenty of hot water, shower was powerful, room was clean and the bed very comfortable indeed. The breakfast was plentiful and hot....
For the price I would certainly stay here again, no complaints whatsoever....

Room Tip: ask for the rear (we had room 7) nice and quiet....
