As usual we had an amazing overnight stay at the solent. We used the spa on arrival and used the facilities and had lunch before check in. The pool area is lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. We each had a massage which was relaxing and therapeutic. Feeling all chilled out, we spent a little time in our room... More

The hubby and I stayed here when we made a last minute decision to go to Paultons Park with our two children. We arrived at the hotel after day one at the park and we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. When we entered our room we were pleasantly surprised by the personal touches the hotel made.

I hired the outdoors hot tub last night with a group of girlfriends - was so nice! Loved being in the open air drinking bubbles in the bubbles. It's great that the hot tub is very secluded and looks out onto grassland - very peaceful. You wouldn't think there's a busy road just past the trees. It cost just £17.50... More

The staff were excellent. Without exception. Very helpful, on the ball and prepared to answer the same questions time and time again. The bedroom was large, well-appointed and a great bathroom. In essence this was a good experience. But not at £160 for the night, for one person. Its not in a Town, in fact its quite a distance from... More

We recently stayed at the Solent Hotel for a large family reunion and found the hotel to be a real mixture of pluses and minuses. Accommodation : Our room was pleasant enough, clean and quite nicely appointed. But we found the beds to be pretty uncomfortable. The bunk beds for our kids had not been unfolded or made up. The...

The hotel is located near Whiteley business park, but is not really near anywhere else. There is a pub next door which will charge to the hotel room. Parking is plentiful and free. The wifi works well. A nice touch was the fresh milk left in the fridge - for tea and coffee. On 2 occasions my key card had... More

We stayed 1 night last weekend. The hotel is lovely - well laid out & spacious. Our room was surprisingly large & comfortable. We booked a double room but it felt like a junior suite. The staff could not have been more helpful & friendly. Sadly, the restaurant food was not very inspiring - more like gastro pub grub than... More
