Across from the station, and very inviting when you arrive.
Reception good
Rooms clean and functional
Did not try restaurant

Would happily stay again!

This only gets 2 stars due to it's location which looked central and was on the edge of retail park with food outlets such as TGI Fridays and the reception/bar area looked recently refurbished and modern. I was only there from after 10pm due to delayed flight and had work commitments in the morning.

The room was as expected basic with what I would call a low large mdf ikea desk top with pretend metal feet with what I would call a sofa bed style excuse for a mattress on top very uncomfortable. The duvet cover also required a new one not that it was not clean, it was in need of replacement as it had evidently been washed and used for a long period of time and was rough feeling and yellow tinged compared to the clean white pillow cases, 1 of which I used horizontally to attempt to make lying on mattress more comfortable. I had a sore back in the morning as a result.

The carpet is also in need of replacement. The room has person controlled air con that I turned off due to the noise of the fan on top of noise of lift .

I was in room 308 which I discovered I was late in room (after 10pm) was very close to lift, which was a concern but due to time thought I would be ok. But unfortunately I could hear it clearly from room and combine that with an already very uncomfortable excuse for a bed lead to a very restless night and a sore back the following day.

Staff that I saw (2 of them) appeared to be friendly.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms close to lift as sound proofing within hotel is just about non existent. Lift can be hea...

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.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms sunniest and with view towards docks, so top floor offers best outlook. Front do...

We stayed at the Ibis the night before joining a cruise. Ideal. Close to the entrance to the Embarkation point for the ship. As usual we had a pleasant stay and a simple but enjoyable dinner the evening we arrived.Once again the staff were helpful and the room was basic but had all that was neccesary for a good night sleep. However we were surprised when we ordered a bottle of red wine, that they were out of stock. We chose the last bottle of a French wine leaving only 1 variety for the next customer.

Initially given room on third floor (308) next to lift but asked to move as every lift movement could be clearly heard. Then given room on second floor much further down corridor but kept awake for most of night by the sound of an extractor room in next door bathroom.
