Highfield House Hotel
Ranked #17 of 25 Hotels in Southampton
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Clean well appointed room of reasonable size was just right for our two night stay, Very friendly and helpful at reception advising where to eat and local bus services. There is no restaurant and bar in the hotel but a restaurant is next door. A nice touch was they said if we did not want to go out for dinner they would be happy to supply plates and cutlery if we wanted to order a take-away. Very good breakfast buffet with full English, fruits, cereal and pastries and pleasant and helpful staff. Free parking and enough of it.

We had an overnight stay before heading to the docks. The staff were helpful and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good, the hot food was hot.We also had dinner in the the restaurant next door which was good and had a lot of atmosphere.

Room Tip: we had a ground floor front room, no complaints.

Very pleased with choice. Room was very comfortable , clean and spacious. Had an excellent nights sleep for once away from home.
Breakfast was nothing to write home about but did its job.
Very convenient for us and that is why we chose it. Plenty of parking, free wi-fi but no evening meal. Plenty of eating choices within a short walk.
I will use it again if going to St. Mary's and need a ex for the night.

we were greated by a gentleman on the reception who is the owner we think , in any case he greated us and answered all our questions about transport , buses, taxis etc and always spoke to us as we came and went over the next few days, our rooms were very clean , light and airy and the towls were changed every and the beds made up, the breakfast was one of the best we have eaten in the UK , all the items were of top quality , real orange juice, real coffee, top quality bacon, even a young lad would make your toast and bring it to your table.
nearby are hairdressers, sainsbury, takeaways, and bus stop ( a all day family bus ticket £7 , thats for four people !) 5 mins into town , or a 20 min walk .
Southampton as a new Museum and a great shopping center, and plenty of nice well kept parks.
off the 750 staff who lost their lives on the titanic over 500 were from Southampton so there are lots of information about this around the City.

Room Tip: room number 3 is nice

we stayed at his hotel on sat 15/06/2013 after an evening at the mayflower theatre. The room was clean and comfortable. Direct hotel line to the taxi firm very useful and reasonable price to get to the theatre. Free hotel parking was a bonus. Breakfast was excellant and all staff waiting very pleasant (nothing too much trouble). There was even a toast "chef" !! We will definately stay here again.

A very warm welcome from staff on reception. The room is as you would expect from a 3* hotel, we had a slightly bigger room for the use of sofa bed for our daughter (we ended up using our own inflatable bed for her comfort). The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable (the main things I look for in a 3*). I would agree with other reviews that the hotel was very warm and we struggled to get the room cool even though it was not the greatest weather outside. We stayed for 2 nights either side of a trip to Paulton's Park for Peppa Pig World. It is an ideal location for this and has a Sainsburys really near by to stock up on supplies or grab some sandwiches on the way back as we did. The breakfast is excellent, lots of choice, all kept being refreshed even if it hadn't run out, the staff at breakfast were really attentive, including giving our daughter a pen and paper when they noticed she was getting restless! We will happily use the hotel again. If I were looking for fault it would be the lack of pillows/towels for the additional person in the room, easily sorted by the attentive staff and overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Should be aware that there is no lift, we were on 3rd floor but it didn't worry us!

On a two-nights stay while doing business at Soton Uni. There is not much of a choice around campus and this is one of the only two hotels close to campus. My room was small, terribly hot, and not properly ventilated. Smell of dump and stuffy air were my roommates during my whole stay. I was luckier than a colleague of mine, who had also cigarette smoke coming up into her room from the patrons of the restaurant located beneath her room. Cleanliness is OK overall, but the building shows its age and wood creaks and squeaks when hotel guests walk around. Breakfast: not to die for. There is not much choice and it is rather greasy. Staff is kind. Plenty of room for improvement, but not much of an incentive when there is not much choice around.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the restaurant to avoid cigarette smoke coming into your room.
