Have stayed here on a number of occasions, either on route to a holiday further on, or for a 1/2 night break. It is really easy to get to, just follow the big blue Ikea building (it's almost next door), Ibis, Novotel and Etap are all situated around a shared car park, and for £3 you can park for 24 hours and not need to use the car as this is within a stone's throw of the centre of Southampton. Also, as my husband hates Ikea, it means that after a day's shopping he can return to the hotel, and I can have an hour or so to myself in Ikea without him moaning! From the front rooms in the hotel the view is towards the dock, and you can watch any liners that are berthed. The rooms are fairly small, but with all the basic facilities, and, together with the requisite chair, you do get a padded bench seat as well. The carpetting in the rooms is a rather unfortunate sludgy brown colour which doesn't look very clean, whether or not it is! On our last visit, the reception, bar and restaurant areas had all been revamped and looked, very smart, clean and modern. Possibly the rooms are next on the schedule. The staff are always very helpful, and, they do a very good breakfast. Ideally situated for trips into the New Forest, etc., and widely used by travellers going off/returning from cruises.
