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

This hotel is excellently situated and well run. We were there for the Boat Show and the ferry trip from Hythe to Southampton adds to the occasion. Room 7 has a small balcony overlooking the Solent providing spectacular views. The restaurant food is first class. All in all a great place to stay.

We recently stayed at the Boathouse Hotel. My wife, my 8 year old niece and I were put in room 10 at the top of the hotel - it was very large and had 2 king sized beds with en-suite bathroom with lovely walk in shower. The room overlooked the marina so we could see ships coming in and out... More

We made a return visit to this hotel at the beginning of September, stayed in a standard double which was a very nice spacious room. We were a little disappointed with the service the night we ate at the Boathouse as it did seem rather slow and not very personal, but the food was of a good standard, the Italian... More

Not stayed here as it's very close to home, but it's worth searching out as the restaurant is superb, fairly modern style interior, with truly excellent menu, top quality at what I would consider reasonable prices considering the surroundings and the caliber of the food.

It's not the height of luxury, but if you like boats you can come here and gawp at hundreds of vessels parked in the marina whist enjoying a drink on the outdoor terrace. The good points are the free parking, free wifi and plentiful inclusive continental breakfast as well as very friendly staff. Rooms are quiet, comfy, clean and probably... More

I cannot complement this hotel enough, the room was perfect, overlooking the Marina, the staff were helpful and pleasant in everyway and the food in the restaurant was superb, compliments to the chef. We are planning another stay here next August bank holiday. Minor gripe..... which I find myself commenting on about almost every hotel I visit...... the hairdryer is... More
