    My daughter had her 4th birthday party here, hosted by Chloe. She was amazing from start to finish, so helpful and accommodating when guest arrived and doing games with the children. It took all the usual stress away as a parent. I would highly recommend this venue.

    Superb Party
    Had my son's birthday party here today, I did a host your own but there team were still so helpful and supportive. They made sure I was aware of everything before the day and on the day helped me make the day special for my little boy. And even though they were super busy we were given loads of space, all the kids enjoyed the food and we were given lots of refreshments which was great. Shane especially made me feel really welcome and made sure I was happy with everything. And thank you to Mackey who assisted as well.

    Lovely place.
    Came out with my daughter and grandson and loved the Entertainment, the teacups and the food. We were very shocked at the size of the pizza and how nice it tasted after being warned not to eat their. Staff were extra friendly and helpful when needed. Only downfall was Tables could have done with cleaning more often as the blonde man was doing it alone when the man in the rainbow trousers (the dancer) and what looked like his girlfriend, young skinny worker in funky trousers were flirting. That should be left at home. Apart from that and the fact the carpets could do with a clean with can’t be helped in this environment we will definitely be back again. Kind regards Mary.

    The staff were fantastic! Especially Katie and Abboe for their amazing performance at showtime, my daughter was really engaged and entertained. And chloe was really friendly on the counter, and when my daughter was playing the lollipop charity game.

    Very happy
    Just bought a monthly membership recently for my 2 year old as it seems to be the cheapest out of all places! Less than £15 a month for me and my daughter for unlimited visits and I wasn't disappointed well worth the money nice little cafe, free wifi and could very clearly see my baby from where I was sitting! 2 separate play areas for younger and older children which makes me feel like my baby is safe and it's in such a good area too lots of restaurants, little Tesco's/shops near by, an arcade, cinema very close by! Definitely can't get bored

    Very cold!
    The staff are lovely with the children and polite and helpful to adults, however I feel for them and for us working/ sitting in a very cold environment. I took my grandchildren aged 3 1/2 and 2 years old. We had to keep our coats on as the area was so cold. Staff looked frozen but were obviously trying to combat the cold by wearing layered clothing. We go most weeks and if it were not for the fact my grandchildren love it I would not return. It is neither fair for workers nor patrons.

Im sorry but reading all the reviews below i cant quite understand if we were in the same place?
As regular soft play goers with my niece, nephew and son we fancied trying somewhere new.
There were biscuit crumbs all over the place, the floor was filth, the tables filth, my 5 year old niece didnt even want to use the toilets they were that grotty.
My 18 month old son was besotted with the trains at the back window so ran straight to it, face on it. The windows were like something out of a horrror movie. Utter filth!!!!! After questioning the management he told us due to covid the windows get wiped down once a week!!!???!! What the hell!? They should be done inbetween sessions at a minimum.
I honestly could go on and on. Everything was grubby, just because things are old and worn doesn't mean things need to be dirty!
At our local soft play the staff are constantly walkingg around with a disinfectant bottles ensuring that all surfaces are kept safe and clean.
As mothers, me and my sister were in there 5 minutes and just knew it wasn't safe in this current climate for our children to be in there.
I have signed up to trip advisor just to leave this review. I am not a complainer - ever!!! But this i felt was ABSOLUTELY necessary.
I honesty feel like a trip from health and safety and this place would be closed down immediately! Oh and not to forget £30 entry for 3 under 5 children. £4.50 per adult!? Utter disgrace, i understand you are in the middle of Eastleigh so prices inflate but fortunately you have too much competition to be charging for adults.
Partyman eastleigh needs urgent attention.

I will say that the gentleman managing was a lovely chap, very understanding, and quite frankly the only assett to your play centre.

Not only was it £30 for a family of 5 to visit, if you were lucky enough to get a seat the floors under your feet were filthy so taking shoes off was an issue. Even if the staff could clean/sweep floor under tables they are so close that when packed this would be a challenge. Under 4’s section was dirty, worn and most of the sensory lights didn’t work so a waste of time and pretty boring to be fair. The dirt in the bubbles they look out of was disgusting and the build up of dust around the edges? Not sure if this place is ever cleaned the actual soft play. Won’t be returning anytime soon with the price and poor facilities available. Certainly needs a referb and deep clean.

We had my sons birthday party here today and didn’t know what to expect. We were astounded at how much entertainment was put on for the children. They had soft play to begin with and then singing and dancing followed by lunch and ballon making. Macky and Chloe were fantastic! All the guests said what a great party it was. Thank you so much for giving my son a wonderful party. Would highly recommend.

Just had my daughter's 6th birthday here. Overall the party was brilliant and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. Our party host Sian was excellent. The only things I would say could be improved are more food - there ere loads of sandwiches but not enough chicken nuggets, sausages or fruit and veg sticks. It was also freezing cold in there and none of the hosts were allowed to wear jumpers.

The space is quite big with separate play areas for under 4s and under 2s.
The team are ways very friendly and there are shows throughout the day where the kids are encouraged to get up and dance along to Baby Shark and the like. Chloe was great with the kids.
It's kept quite clean, tables are regularly cleared and cleaned too.

Bad points: the ball guns haven't worked in a long time nor do any of the electrical toys within the play areas (ones that are fixed to walls to create light and sound). The carpets are heavily soiled, but hey, thats kids!

If you have food intolerances I'd suggest you bring your own food, even though the signage says this isn't allowed. There isn't much choice for food allergies, including no milk alternatives for tea or coffee.

I have a membership so in honesty we get more than our money's worth each month.

HIGHLY recommend Bekhan and Partyman for an amazing party for 26 young 5 year old children. It was FANTASTIC. They did soft play, made a bear and had some delicious food. Bekhan did absolutely everything to keep the children happy and entertained (not easy with a whole class of little year ones!) Her and her colleague even danced on the little stage to music for 20 minutes and did actions for the kids to join in to! All the children loved the party and their bears. I’m so glad I decided on a party here as it’s one I will always have fond memories of. Thank you Bekha and partyman world of play

A fabulous softplay which is so much fun! Really impressed with how safe it feels, socially distanced tables, lots of hand gel and strict instructions to wear masks at all times.
Debbie and Macky are exemplary staff, so much so that we became members after they made us feel so welcome. Really good value for money here and great choice of snacks and drinks. We would highly recommend this soft play, and we have visited many across the South West! 👏

I was a bit nervous about booking, but my daughter really wanted to come. We arrived a bit late to avoid any queue, but I don’t think there would have been one as I could only count about 7 families in the whole place! There was sanitiser on every pillar and they encouraged it to be used regularly every time children went into and out of the play equipment. Adults required to wear masks except when sat at tables with refreshments ( my ticket included a free coffee). One way system around the tables and tables spaces 2m + apart with some Booths closed out with tables removed and x on the floor. Overall I don’t think they could do much more to keep it feeling safe. Kids had a blast and and saying they felt happy as not people everywhere bumping into each other. Good job Partyman!

Have hosted one party and attended several others here and incidentally always had Chloe as our host - she’s wonderful: calm, organised and brilliant with the kiddos. The kids always have a great time and the party food is always copious (excellent value for money). Initially it seems a bit steep (££) but for the lack of stress it’s well worth it!

I have visited Partyman Eastleigh three times in the past year with my toddler daughter. Each time has been on a weekday in term time so not at all busy. The playframes are huge and I'm sure kids love them but as a parent, the positives end there for me. The equipment is tired, often cracking in places, and some of the areas inside the playframes are really dark. In the under 4s area, there was a lot of dust and crumbs swept into the corners of the playframe. Despite it being really quiet, the cafe area has been dirty every time I've visited, with food around the floor and wet/sticky patches on tables and seats. There is no excuse for a dirty cafe when there are minimal customers. Multiple staff were stood around chatting on each occasion I visited, rather than cleaning or maintaining the centre, e.g. restocking toilet paper in the ladies. Today, I saw one member of staff with his hands down his trousers and he then walked behind the cafe counter to serve customers without washing his hands. If I had planned to order food I definitely wouldn't have after seeing that!
I have tried to give this place the benefit of the doubt but each time I have come away feeling grossed out and a bit annoyed, so I won't be going back. If it's like this at the quietest times, I dread to think what it's like on a rainy Saturday. I only wish I had taken pictures.
