Loved this, the food was great and the view but above all the staff were so welcoming and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and they were discretely attentive but not intrusive. The coffee and salted caramel ice cream is the best I have ever had. Can't wait to visit again

Stayed for 1 night the weekend before Christmas. Have stayed here more times than I can remember and my husband and I keep on returning as it is such a Linley hotel, rooms spotless, good size and comfy beds. Food, both lunch and evening dinner is excellent and the rise Prosecco is my favourite! Hythe us a very relaxed small... More

Some friends & I stayed here as we had a party in the area. We arrived & had a spot of lunch which was delicious & even though the kitchen had closed when we requested dessert the staff went out of their way to accommodate our need for something sweet. My room was beautiful, very large with an amazingly comfy... More

We stayed at the Boathouse Hotel for one night on New Years Eve with some friends. We were welcomed and checked in at the bar and then shown to our rooms. Both rooms had fabulous views of the marina, were warm, clean and spacious. I did however, have an issue with the hairdryer provided in the room as the lead... More

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
