This is our first time at this hotel, as we walked in lobby entrance nice and bright very inviting. Staff were very courteous and professional. We did not get to use the restaurant since breakfast is served till 10:00. After 30 hrs + of not sleeping (because of travelling). Rooms are comfortable and quiet, great A/C. Rooms would need some...

I have stayed at this hotel several times. The decor had been changed since my last visit and I felt the reception area looked very 'unloved'. The layout was certainly an improvement though. Room was cold and as my husband is disabled he feels the cold quite badly. When I asked about the heating I was told it was not... More

I've visited this hotel several times when attending the Southampton Boat Show. For its proximity to the show you cannot get better (it's physically inside the show boundary) and it's also a great location for the ferry and port as well as being close to the city centre. They have recently refurbished the ground floor (where the reception, bar and... More

I stayed here for almost a month as part of my company's tie up. No problems as far as stay was concerned. Rooms are average size...not too big....not too small. Location is good....just next to the City Terminal from where all cruises start. Basically it's a package hotel for people who go on a cruise and stay here overnight. They... More

There is no better location for the boat show as you are staying 'in the show itself' but, this is a very tired, 70's building, bedrooms are dated with very hard , thin beds, showers over the bath. For Southampton, the Pig Hotel or Lymwood show how it's done, but, they are full! Managed to book a week prior to... More

In April, we needed a pre-cruise hotel, and the Holiday Inn is my go-to because of it's proximity to City Terminal (you can just walk to the ship). It's also really close to the restaurants and bars in Southampton (short walking distance through the walls). The rooms have been recently renovated, and they look good. The lobby and restaurant area... More

Location: good for a pre-cruise. We stayed there when the town was hotting up in preparation for the annual Boat Show. Unfortunately the usual route into the hotel was cordoned off, and as a result our short-sighted driver became somewhat confused and mounted a concrete bollard at 20mph, giving us all a good laugh. Fortunately the other front passenger didn't... More
