We stayed here for two nights prior to our cruise and were so glad we did. We usually stay in Grand Harbour when in Southampton but will be staying at the Elizabeth in future.
Our room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was very modern. Both were spotless. The bay window in the bedroom gave in so much light. The bed was king sized and comfortable. The room also had two decent chairs and a table. The flat screen TV was on the wall. Wi fi was fast and free, the owners will give you a separate password for each device. The room was warm so I asked for a fan and the owners took one to my room within a few minutes.
The owners were very hands on, if they weren't serving you breakfast they were in the reception area.
The breakfast room was large and bright. Hubbie loved his full British whereas I had perfect poached eggs one day and slightly over cooked scrambled eggs the next. They did not skimp on toast or ant food for that matter. Their breakfast certainly set you up for the day.
They have a bar that serves snacks all day and meals in the evening but it is only open Monday to Friday. We dined there on the Friday. A lot off the food on the menu was not available so we both settled for steak pie. I was worried that it would be shortcrust pastry as we are used to puff pastry pies in Scotland. It was puff pastry with the most tenderest meat that I've tasted inside. The pie was very big, one could have served two so do not order a starter. We waited 30-45 mins for our meal as it was cooked to order. The veg was fresh not frozen. The food was worth the wait. You can also have the food delivered to your room at no extra cost.
Unlike other hotels in the centre of Southampton you do not pay for parking when staying there. We left our car for the week we were cruising and even with adding the return taxi fare it still worked out lots cheaper than parking at the port.
The hotel is on a bus route and only takes 5mins or so to take you into West Quay shopping centre.
If you are looking for a great inexpensive hotel then look no further than the Elizabeth.
