This hotel is OK for a 1 night stop over enroute somewhere.
The accommodation - is basic but comfortable. The room was like a sauna and sleeping was very difficult. There was no air conditioning, only a portable desktop fan. There was also no bedding on the sofa-bed for the children on arrival and we had to collect this later from Reception and make up the bed for them.
Breakfast - was good. Self service with pretty well most of what you'd expect. The hot buffet consisted of sausage, baked beans and scrambled egg so a little limited, but good quality though if a bit basic.
Evening Meal - very limited menu. Not good value. Drinks at the small bar are expensive. Eat out if you can be bothered to look for somewhere local or in Southampton. I recommend this unless you are really tired and it's too much effort to go out, in which case just make do. You can't say I didn't warn you.
Value for money - well, we had a deal for Poultons Park, so I suppose yes. If you take the value of the PP ticket it doesn't leave much for the hotel to invest in your stay. In fact I'm still wondering how they did it for the price.
Generally - I'm a hardy traveller and usually don't complain, but it was too blooming hot and stuffy in the room on this one I have to say.
Stay there again - Not if I can avoid it. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the facilities were virtually as tired as I was after a fun-packed day at Poultons Park.
