“Friendly Staff and Lovely Breakfast”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My fiancée and I stayed here for one night whilst passing through Southampton. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely. Room was more than fine. Location is a couple of miles from Southampton centre.

If you prefer a low key hotel with welcoming staff, clean rooms, white towels, plus an excellent breakfast this is the place for you.
We have just got back from a weekend break in Southhampton, on arrival at the hotel we were welcomed at reception, advised of where to eat locally with some restaurants offering 10% off on production of your room card.
The rooms were fine, with ironing board/ iron, safe , tea & coffee making facilities etc.
The variety of items at the self service breakfast was also good and everything nicely presented with hot and cold items available.
I would recomment this hotel to anyone looking for a short break in the area.

I stayed here for 1 night prior to a friend's wedding in Winchester.

Staff were friendly on arrival. I'd booked a single room (25) which was small but well equipped. Bed was comfy though on a hot night with no air conditioning traffic noise was noticeable as I had to have windows open.

Bathroom clean though shower not very powerful.

Good buffet breakfast included with plenty of choice of hot/cold items.

The best thing about this hotel is its very friendly and very helpful staff, and overall it's quite a nice venue with a lot of potential. It has the feel of a business rather than a family hotel, which is no bad thing. I wouldn't stay again however. A lot of the bedroom doors require slamming to close, which can be annoying when trying to relax. There's too many squeaky floor boards, broken window locks, and some of the decor in the bathrooms is well past the date when it should have been replaced, or at least fixed. And if it's a hot day, refuse to stay on the 1st floor... Sauna! It could be a great hotel, but someone needs to loosen the purse strings just enough so that the place can breathe.

I stayed for 3 nights while attending a conference at the Highfield Campus of the University and found The Highfield House Hotel to be *almost* perfect for my needs. I asked for a quiet room on the top floor and was allocated a decent-sized double room (with bath and shower) at the back of the hotel. The room overlooked the carpark. If you're a light sleeper (which I am), the early-morning refuse collection and the 1am delivery (of laundry?) could be an issue. The rooms are not air-conditioned. On the plus side: the room was clean; the breakfast was good (real filter coffee included); the staff were very friendly. In sum, a clean, well-priced hotel in good walking distance (about 10 minutes) to the Highfield Campus.

Stayed for one night with my wife as we were going to a concert near by.
This is the second time we have stayed at the Highfield and it was just as good as the first time
If you want a good clean room with a very good breakfast and very friendly staff plus free parking
this is the place to stay.

Stayed at the hotel following the let's rock Southampton gig. Room was spacious and clean. The staff were really friendly considering how busy they were. Great breakfast the following morning too. Would stay again for sure.
