This fairly large, well-presented and still fairly new hotel is not about being in a beautiful location but it has enough to offer in its own right to make a stay worthwhile. Fareham is a small place located between the busy city of Southhampton and Portsmouth, with access to the sea within a 10 minute drive. The hotel consists of... More

I travelled with my family for a last minute, 2 night break in August, not knowing the area but wanting to be close to Hampshire visitor attractions. Solent Hotel was very convenient, and we enjoyed days at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Beaulieu and Winchester. Staff at the hotel were very helpful, including dealing with a group of noisy visitors in an... More

When we arrived at 22.30 in the night ,the receptionist was nice but made a mistake ,instead to put three nights she put just one.....we did not notice at that time but next... More

We have visited a number of other hotels in the shire hotel group and considered this hotel as a possible when we needed to visit the area and were not disappointed. Shire hotels are always, in our opinion, of a very good standard and offer a good experience but this hotel was higher in most respects than others in the... More

Good Hotel - attentive staff. Summary – nice hotel, average room, fantastic staff, superb restaurant; food and service. Directions to the hotel were good, car parking was extensive and free with easy access to the room via a lift with an offer of help with cases. Our bed was only ok and too springy for my liking so that moving... More

Check in was a bit slow as I was the only person there, but staff are polite and eager to help. Room is very well equipped although the TV could do with an upgrade. Layout of the hotel is interesting and you have plenty to explore through the bar area, lounge/foyer and dining area. The spa area is well equipped... More

The hotel looked quite good on the internet but was disappointed on arrival. Stayed in executive family suite (family of four). Pros: Staff were friendly. Food in restaurant was good but a bit overpriced. Must try: sticky toffee pudding and ice cream - delicious. Nice gifts for children on arrival - cookie and chocolates - a nice surprise. Swimming pool,... More
