We loved our stay at the boathouse. The location was perfect. Views in every direction are lovely. Parking convenient. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and our room was spacious clean and comfortable. The heating was a bit hit/miss - despite switching off the radiators continued belching out heat so needed to open the windows. Not a problem just a... More

Stayed here on a B&B basis with a friend on 4th December for just the one night while visiting friends nearby. No issues checking in and taken straight to our room by a member of staff. We were on the second floor and the ceiling is into the roof giving the very large, clean room a certain modern style. The... More

We had a party of 8 for lunch at the Boathouse. It's modern decor in the Marina at Hythe is an interesting and peaceful location. All our guests were impressed by the varied menu and the quality of the food at value for money prices. The service was attentive and efficient. I have no hesitation in recommending this venue as...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, mid week. We had room no. 1 which overlooked the marina and had a huge balcony not that it was used (could be December had something to do with this!). Room was very large with a comfortable seating area. Bathroom very good with large deep bath and excellent shower. Breakfast was very... More

Wonderful boutique Hotel in Hythe Marina with superb views of the Marina and Southampton Water. Amazing lying awake in the morning listening to the historic train coasting along Hythe Pier which was just across from the Marina. Room was clean, modern, functional and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and of a consistently high quality, staff were friendly, helpful and polite... More

Stayed here with friends, we were all very impressed with the room sizes and cleanliness. Decor is slightly dated, furniture on the cheap side for a £130 per night room in November. We all ate in the restaurant, skipping starters we went with main meal and dessert, meal was nice, dessert a let down by the over cooked crumble topping.... More

Visited for my partners birthday and they staff are incredible! The gentlemen waited on us hand and foot and the food was spectacular. As a table of 14 we expected to wait a while for food but it was served to perfect timing not to quick or slow! The food was to die for and we will definitely be returning!!!... More

We enjoyed an overnight stay at the boathouse last weekend and would definitely recommend this lovely small hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our room was spacious, clean, well appointed and good value for money. Dinner in the restaurant was also good, apart from a rather rowdy Hen Party in the bar. Continental breakfast included in the... More

Matt,the chef at The Boathouse pulled out all the stops last night to produce one of the best meals I have eaten in a very long time. Offered as a seasonal special, the slow cooked venison shank was served on Swiss Chard with pomme anna potatoes and one of the richest silkiest sauces ever. It was an absolute triumph and... More
