I was in Southampton for a conference. The hotel is located in Southampton harbour, and mainly hosts tourists who hop on and off from cruise ships. My room was huge, and overlooked the sea. The mattress and the room amenities were good. The athmospere was quiet. There is not much to see around, Southampton itself is not an exciting city... More

On our ride from Heathrow Airport to the hotel, the driver told me that the hotel was recently remodeled and was one of the best hotels in Southampton. I believe it. From the time we checked in, the service was friendly, personable, and efficient. The entire hotel looked brand new - both our room and all of the public spaces.... More

Service in this hotel was disappointing and not particularly friendly. The food was also a let down. We are big fans of afternoon tea, but this really doesn't compare to other hotels we have experienced. Instead of delicate sandwiches, you get thick chunks of bread roll with various below average quality fillings. The scones however were lovely and light, but... More

We booked into the Grand Harbour for one night prior to setting off on a cruise. We got an amazing deal as they kept the car parked for 29 days. It's a beautiful hotel and we got a lovely room with balcony. However my highest praise must go to their excellent concierge service where the staff were efficient, courteous and... More

Whilst visiting family in the new forest we have stayed at two hotels - grand harbour being the first. We had a pleasant enough stay and the room was adequate but like many large hotels it lacked in character. Staff were helpful but seemed very busy and didn't have enough time to go that extra mile. Would we stay again?... More

Although a large hotel locally, we strive to ensure every guest feels comfortable and for us to have not met this expectation... More

Its comfortable and is a good recommendation for a place to stay as it is close to the peir and shopping. I guess something was missing but I cant quite put my finger... More
