I have stayed at this hotel before and always left feeling that I had stayed at a very good hotel but not this time. It was not one big thing that lead me to this conclusion but a mixture of silly little things that could have so easily have been put right before our arrival. The staff as always were... More

Lovely relaxing break, great spa, great restaurant and food and very helpful staff - nothing was too much trouble Only slight thing was the room was too hot at night and air conditioning noisy - but that may just be personal preference. Will return

What a pleasure to stay at the Solent Hotel & Spa. This was a last minute booking so I arrived with my wife and two young children not knowing what to expect . We were met at reception by a lovely lady with long curly hair- (think her name was Melissa) after a long drive down from London. She was... More

Just returned from a girlie spa weekend to celebrate a Birthday. What a fab hotel. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were of a high standard catering to every need. I had a great massage in the Spa with a lovely girl Charlotte. Carlos in the restaurant treated us like royalty and reserved us... More

This was my first Business Trip to Hampshire, and the Solent was a great place to stay. It has the appearance of old world charm, but all the sophistication of a modern hotel. Everything is well thought out from the moment your queue at reception, to the very spacious fitness center, to the comfortable rooms. The bed was VERY comfortable... More

The hotel is situated close to Whiteley Shopping Village so access from the M27 is very easy. We had one night here so took advantage of the spa facilities and their oh so fluffy robes. The rooms were well appointed and the shower was incredibly powerful. Make sure you use the air con as our room certainly became a bit... More

My Fiancée and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights as a joint birthday celebration. We stayed in the Junior Suite which was extremely comfortable. We ate both nights in the restaurant. The meals we had over the 2 nights were excellent. Special mention to the chefs as this experience really made our stay special. Special mentions to Carlos... More

The rooms are spacious and clean, have excellent amenities. Very good atmosphere in the hotel. The swimming pool is not large, but quite nice. The bar is rather simple, but OK. The reception is very friendly. The bed was very comfortable, but the walls are a bit too thin. Obviously, you need a car to get anywhere. So, the location... More
