We stayed two nights here in the disabled room the room was lovely and big and had a nice decking with views of the marina. Staff were very helpful. The hotel needs an upgrade there was a terrible smell in the stairwell area like dampness. The disabled lift did not work properly but staff helped us with our bags. Dinner... More

The Boathouse Hotel in Hythe Marina is a wonderful setting, very peaceful and affords excellent views the port of Southhampton. The room was one of the best we had stayed in. It was very modern, and spacious with excellent views of the marina. The service was excellent. The hotel staff went out of there way to look after you. The... More

We booked the Boat House for our wedding venue in March 2015, we were given our own wedding reception planners who helped with any problems and ensured that the day ran smoothly and efficiently. Every member of staff worked tirelessly throughout the day and evening to the point of nothing was too much trouble. For the wedding breakfast all the... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is in a great position overlooking the shipping lanes to Southampton, the view from our room was wonderful. The room itself was very large, as was the bathroom & both very clean. We met the cleaner one morning who asked us if we needed anything from house-keeping, a nice touch. Both... More

I stayed (room 1) for 4 nights on business. I stay in lots of hotels and can highly recommend The Boathouse. Located on the marina, the setting is peaceful and beautiful. My room was well equipped, clean, light and spacious. I dined in the restaurant one night, and the food was absolutely delicious and well presented. The staff were helpful... More

To be fair, we didn't stay - we had Sunday lunch. What a fantastic deal it was! Although almost empty when we turned up at 12 noon, the place was humming within 45 minutes. The locals clearly know that they'll get a superb roast lunch for a little over £10. Perfect starter too - big juicy mussels; an amazing pear/stilton/walnut.... More

Lovely setting and very friendly staff. Was however disappointed with the size of the room and very low ceiling. There was also no lift which meant I had to carry my own bags up three flights of steep stairs. For the price I didn't think it justified the room. Also the car parking wasn't great, the hotel has a bar... More

stayed here for Saturday night, our room overlooked the marina and was a good size and very clean, we had a great continental breakfast and what a treat to have staff who pre-empt that you may want more tea, butter etc,, fantastic value for money and service on a par with a 5 star hotel, thanks

The room was very spacious, had a fabulous view of the marina and a very comfortable bed. All staff were very friendly and attentive throughout and... More
