“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Nice lobby, but rooms are just OK….It was good for the price, but I would recommend the Premier Inn if there is a choice for roughly the same price (especially if you take advantage of the Premier Inn specials).

There is one PC in the lobby for ~20 minutes of free internet use. Otherwise, need to pay for Internet.

The front desk was very helpful.

Friday’s (TGIF) restaurant and McDonalds are nearby. Also reasonably close to Mall, Supermarket, etc. Very close to train station so it is walkable even with luggage.

We used the hotel for overnight stay prior to cruise. Easy walking distance from rail station and port gate, though long walk to actual ship, so a taxi would be a good idea! Arrived quite late, but the bar meals were excellent. Good breakfast and 12 am checkout meant no loitering in lobby with luggage (and the missus had packed plenty!)

We stayed here the night before a cruise, and it was great value. Room was clean and well equipped. Staff were really friendly and helpful - the hotel was full and really busy, but they still did everything with a smile. We ate in the bar, which served a good range of light meals. Breakfast was really great and again good value.
My only criticism is the pillows, which were about an inch thick, but as didn't ask for anymore, then it would not be fair to moan about that.

This Ibis Hotel is one of the better room sized of the Ibis chain.Very Reasonably priced and exceptionally clean. Breakfast is not included but is great value at 7.50 GBP for a full breakfast from the buffet. As an hotel close to cruise ship sailing, check out isn't till noon and luggage can be stored until required. You can get specials if you book early enough on a variety of sites such as westjet.com or booking.com. This hotel is great for the budget traveller. WiFi is available but at a cost. An 18 minute free computer is available in the lobby so you can respond to emails as required. This is a basic hotel that is clean, well located and provides all your needs. Good restaurants are close by so if you are in Southampton for any reason this is great value and a lot better than other Ibis hotels i've stayed in at various locations around the world.

Room Tip: This is ideal if you are looking for a place to stay pre or post cruise. It is basic hotel living wi...

We stayed at this hotel as we wanted to be close to the town centre. The location was great. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. The hotel is spotless, light and airy. Our hotel room was excellent, well laid out and very quiet. You can buy food 24 / 7 and the lady who works in the restaurant was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. If you want a great stay whilst you go shopping or before a cruise, this is definately the place to stay. We will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't be frightened to ask the staff for directions, they are so helpful (especially Barry).

We used this convenient and clean hotel prior to our cruise. Reasonable and comfortable after a long flight from the west coast. walking distance from both train and bus station. 5 minutes to main square and a Huge Ikea across the street to sample some good priced food.
