“Overnight stay before cruise. Second stay here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

Excellent value. Buffet breakfast was excellent with probably the best sausage my husband says he has EVER tasted!!! Tea and coffee in room. All for £55 the room. Last time we stay we were on third floor and we did report a problem with smelly plumbing. So this time asked for a different room. Was given one on ground floor facing car park. They said they had totally refurbished since last time but we still had plumbing problems with lots of water gurgling noises after water was put down the sink and bath. Also worth a mention is that there is no lift so if you have a heavy case they will organise help for you. All in all a good service with nice people. Also big new Sainsburys on the corner for any last minute items.

Stayed for one night as we were attending a gig nearby and we were pleasantly surprised at the standard since there was not much alternative in the area. We would definitely recommend/stay again. The breakfast was of the buffet variety and everything you might expect was present, we certainly filled up!

Room Tip: The area is quiet so would say most rooms would be good

Stayed for one night prior to catching a cruise ship, The cost was very good for the area, the hotel was clean and breakfast was good, the rooms were perhaps a little small, but this was not a problem, The car parking was also very good, but best of all was the staff who gave sound advice and were very pleasant.
The only downside was that it did not have an evening restaurant, but the restaurant next to the hotel gave us a lovely meal and a discount for being in the hotel, also the area was not particularly good, the town which was only a couple of minutes away had nothing but charity shops and take aways.
Would I stay again, yes very much so.

Stayed here one night on business. Location is ok, easy to find and near to several places to eat.
Checking in was a lengthy process.

Room was ok, nothing special but clean. TV turned itself on a couple of times during the night which was disconcerting, especially when wouldn't switch off from the remote, had to get up and switch off. Should have unplugged it, now I think about it.

Top marks for breakfast. Loads of choice and really well done.
Staff were friendly and pleasant.
Generally recommendable, bit expensive for what it is but decent enough.

Love staying here, always a very good welcome and a bargain at the price. Breakfast very good and very well located for the Brook. Some of the rooms are quite small located in the old section and up a warren of stairs, whilst others are in a more modern section that lacks a bit of character. That said, they are fine, comfortable and well equipped. Free wifi a bonus. Shower pressure a bit lame.

Stayed at the Highfield House Hotel for a couple of nights whilst on a course at the University of Southampton. The hotel is ten minutes walk from the university which is very convenient.
I found the hotel very pleasant. Although the rooms were pretty small they were clean and had everything one might wish for apart from a hair dryer.
There was no internet access on the first night, but by the second night this problem was solved and the internet was working just fine.
All in all my stay here was satisfactory, if ever I do more courses in Southampton I will be coming back to stay at the Highfield.

Breakfast was great. I stayed 3 nights, Fri-Monday. There were organic eggs, English bacon plus nice sausages, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms - a full English breakfast. In addition, there was a place to toast things, a cereal bar including dried fruit. There also were two bowls of fruit every day, one grapefruit sections, one mixed fruit. There was a coffee machine for espresso, cafe au lait, etc which would have been perfect if decaf had been one of the choices. I don't care for instant Nescafe, but at least there were an assortment of tea and herbal tea for the non-caffeine choice. On my last morning, I had to get to LHR, leaving at 6:30 AM, so I was told to find the night porter the night before and tell him my preferred breakfast time, to put out some food early (breakfast was 7-10). He put out everything except the hot cooked things and warm croissants, and even included a plate of ham and cheese slices which I did not see on the usual mornings, so I had plenty of protein options. I hadn't even noticed the yogurt selection until the last morning (there was so much to choose) and was pleased to find I could have a plain yogurt without all that sugar for my fruit, while there were fruit flavors for others.

Room Tip: Be prepared for a building with no lift, although the staff helped with my suitcase. Being only 5...
