Great modern restaurant with surprising views from panoramic windows. Food excellent. Service attentative but not intrusive. Food hot and served in good time. Reasonably priced meals. Been twice before for lunch party for 20 and light lunch for 2. All very enjoyable.

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

Was lovely and peaceful. Hotel very clean and room was spacious. we were able to lay in bed and watch the cruise ships going in and out of the solent! The staff were very good and helpful. Had 2 meals in the hotel. Bit expensive but were worth it as the food was lovely and well presented.

This is a nice quality small hotel and restaurant, based at an upmarket marina on Southampton Water. Good location for me , as I was working at Calshot, just down the road. Very nice reception and friendly staff. Good quality room, though not cheap. Excellent food in the restaurant, freshly cooked by a chef. Plenty of parking if you arrive... More

Perfectly placed on the edge of Hythe marina only 5 minutes walk from the Hythe ferry and middle of town. A very relaxed hotel with comfortable rooms and a nice restaurant overlooking the marina with a good decked seating area for drinks on warm nights. Our room overlooked the marina fountain square and was very quiet at night. We went... More

This was our first visit to Hythe so we decided to stay at the Boathouse. We had a lovely room overlooking the marina with its own balcony. Great choice of food which was real quality and very reasonable prices. One or two minor niggles with parking but it's to be expected at such a popular venue

I am a regular visitor to The Boathouse where I find the quality of the cooking to be consistently high. Three of us ate here on Saturday and although it was full,the service and quality was as good as always.

Food is faultless for which we give the five stars, but have to be honest the service needs to be improved. Very very slow. We had to ask for things several times - after we had ordered drinks, staff had to be reminded when drinks still missing and condiments etc. plates were not cleared away long after we had finished...

We've been in here a few times for a coffee and a glass of wine; the setting, overlooking the marina, is nice, and they have a good selection of wines by the glass. The other day we decided to have lunch there, and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and value. We had the fish and chips - the... More
