Reviewed August 14, 2013

My wife and I stayed at The Ibis southampton for 1 night while in the area visiting friends.
We were greeted warmly by the friendly receptionist on arrival and check in was quick and efficient. It was a bonus that we were able to check in from noon onwards and our room was ready for us when we arrived shortly after 1pm.
The room is basic but has a comfortable bed and all the standard amenities that you need.
The hotel is well positioned with easy access to a number of bars and restaurants and just a few minutes walk to West Quay and the town centre.
We didn't eat here although there is a decent menu available but we did have drinks in the bar which had a nice ambiance and wasn't overly expensive.
Secure parking onsite for £5 was reasonable and convenient.
Staff were all friendly and we would definitely stay here again when in the area.

I had a pretty average experience at the ibis Southampton. It's all OK - the staff were helpful enough and the bed was fine, but it's all looking a bit tired. The shower head was scummy; the fixed bottle of all-purpose shower gel/shampoo by the bath was empty; there was some black mould under the window where the damp has come in; and the towels are thin. Nothing worth actually making a complaint about... but I won't be hurrying back, either. I've stayed in the Ibis Budget next door and I enjoyed the experience more, because it's all newer and more shiny. Needs a lick of paint and some TLC!

Really good value, and everything you could want for overnight stay. Only criticism was, as others have mentioned, the air con is not good enough, so in hot weather, rooms too hot for comfort.
Staff excellent, friendly and nothing too much trouble.

Thank you for posting your thoughts on here. We really value your feedback. As i mentioned in previous feedbacks our Ibis hotels have an ‘air cooling’ system in place which does differ from air conditioning. This system is partly dependant on the external temperature. I can only apologise if this was not sufficiently effective on this occasion. Kind regards, Joanna Siwiorek

Booked in here as i moved from the ibis budget hotel as it was a bit of a nightmare there, this hotel is much more comfortable for a few pounds more, the only issue i had with my room was that the air con did not work and it was a bit stifling in the room due to the hot weather and the windows not opening much... this made me want to get out of the hotel as much as possible, breakfast in the hotel is affordable but its not that nice the cooked element of it was quite nasty (tinned mushrooms in brine egg powdered scramble not nice sausages or bacon) the rest of it was good and a good variety, did not eat dinner at the hotel as it is a bit like school dinners with a tray and someone serving so not a romantic location or anything like that, if travelling for business is fine. Staff are friendly and helpful would stay here again and is a million times better than the one across the road.

Room Tip: check the air conditioning!!!!!!!
