My daughter and I stayed in Southampton prior to boarding the Queen Mary 2 for a transatlantic cruise. I picked the Grand Harbour Hotel because of the reviews and the location. We were not disappointed. The hotel is adjacent to the Old Town which still has remnants of the wall. We walked to a shopping center from there and later... More

I only have good memories from this hotel. And when we like a place we visit again and we recommend to our relatives or friends. This is not new. There's nothing that I didn't like in this hotel. The breakfast was simply delicious and a lot of diversity, the staff was very very attentive, hotel and our room very clean....... More

We stayed only one night before going on a cruise so the package was B & B plus 15 days car parking & taxis to and from the port. The hotel was 5 star & following refurbishment in 2014 is now 4 star plus. The whole experience was brilliant with staff, friendly, polite and helpful. The room was large, well... More

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

Dear Funkids4, Please accept my apologies that you did not enjoy your afternoon tea. I am genuinely surprised and saddened as our afternoon teas are normally so highly praised, as all items including the cakes, are baked here at the hotel fresh. The sandwiches are different styles for a more modern approach, and I offer my apologies that you did... 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

Dear Jane h, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you felt your stay only average. I have noted your comments on feeling our hotel too corporate and we will add these to our on-going service program. Although a large hotel locally, we strive to ensure every guest feels comfortable and for us to have not met this expectation... More
