    This hotel cost me £140 for one night. It is without doubt the worst value for money in Central Southampton. Expect disinterested staff, stained, chipped and faded furniture and restaurant and service more akin to the Ibis or Premier Inn - in fact go and stay in one of them because they're a bit better and half the price.

    The view from the hotel was good and the lesisure facilites were excellent. Also the food was also good.

    The bed wasn't very comfortable

    Very good position for the Ocean Terminal.

    Disappointing that Holiday Inn Southampton now charges £7 for parking. However. when asked for this fee we explained that when booking with Booked.net in January 2011 it was stated that parking was free, the fee was waived. May think again about booking this hotel next year.

    Exceptional

    The location right on the front of Southampton water,close to the Isle of White ferry, was a perfect site for those that like a good night sleep but within 5 mins to the heart of the old town & the clubs/pubs. The girls on reception were very smart, friendly & efficient especially Michelle. The rooms we had 503 & 504 were perfect, clean & plenty of hot water. The breakfast was delicious, everything you would want. The restaurant was bright & airy & very clean. No complaints at all, would go back and recommend.

    Not the fault of the hotel, but I forgot to take note of the directions on their website, we followed our satnav & ended up in dockland. Rang & spoke to Michelle who put us right. Do please print the direction page so you have it with you.

    The room was spacious, well lite,wonderful view of the sea, and cruiseliner port, also could see Hythe and New Forest across the Solent. The staff could not be more helpful, friendly and attentive to your needs. The food was very good and well presented. The hotel was very clean and kept at a very comfortable temperature. All in all I had a super break and will return again this year.

    Exceptional

    From the onset of our stay the staff were very helpful, professional and always had a smile; which in my view is always lovely to have a nice smiley face to welcome you. The room was spotless, very comfy beds, choice of hard or soft pillows (nice touch). The complimentary coffee, tea etc were stocked well (very useful first thing in the morning for a nice cup of tea) The bar area with two big screen tv's was always immaculate and again the staff could not be faulted at all. We had a lovely swim in the pool which is opposite the hotel and again the staff in there were so friendly and accomodating. We did not eat in the hotel at all and so we cannot comment about that side at all. A hotel worth staying in again.
