“Its a great hotel if you are going on a cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Its old and its tired both inside and out. It needs a paint and the rooms are 60's and look it.
Having said that its less than 500 metres to the cruise port, the service from the staff is very good and the restaurant is good for dinner and outstanding for breakfast.
Its typical holiday inn ,in that the beds are comfortable, they are clean and you get the Holiday Inn choice of pillows.
If I was cruising out of southampton, I'd stay there every time, if not --perhaps not.

Very clean and efficient from checking in to checking out. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Easy to get to with plenty of parking. Nice environment, decent size room with everything you need. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here overnight on a quick trip to Southampton. The rooms are functional but definitely comfortable and clean. The price is reasonable. Typical Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express type of hotels - you can know what to expect. The location is convenient and pleasant.

When taking a cruise out of Southampton, England, we had the pleasure and luck of staying at this Holiday Inn. We had no clue if the hotel was close to the port and what a wonderful surprise to look out our room window and SEE THE SHIP. We could have walked to the port. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. The room was clean and the service was excellent. We had snacks and beer at the bar and were happy as clams! I MUST also tell you what wonderful service we had with SMITHS for Airports. Although our flight into Heathrow was 2 hours late, these folks did NOT charge us an additional fee. They were patiently awaiting our arrival then efficiently and safely delivered us to our hotel in Southampton. Ian was such a delight and full of information. We will certainly book with Smith's again!

Just a quick review to say I would recommend the cruise stay and park. It was so easy leaving the car and having a lovely clean hotel to stay in the night before.

We had been allocated a room over looking the port so we were very excited to see our cruise ship opening the curtains on the Saturday morning.

Our 16 month old was looked after brilliantly too.

We have stayed here in the past as it is so convenient for the cruise terminal, so decided to stay again. Check in was friendly and efficient and the rooms are light and quite large. We booked a sea view room, so had a lovely view. We ate in the bar and service was quick and friendly - the food was very good. Breakfast was a buffet style - again, the service was excellent, despite it being a really busy morning - their was a large choice and the food was piping hot. We have recommended this hotel to friends and family and would stay here again.

Stayed 2 night because we were at a wedding in the area. Great location with a nice view from 8th floor. Friendly reception staff and efficient check in. Family room nice and big and ooms were clean if a bit dated and could probably do with a refurb but overall great for what we needed. Great serving staff at breakfast apart from the one who was supposed to be in charge who didn't seem to be able to cope with a busy breakfast, far too flustered and almost rude when asked for a table and coffee??? It does have a pool near hotel that guests can used but when we went it was being used for a baby swim session so half pool roped of and the water was so murky that you couldn't see the bottom of the pool! Disappointed in that!
