“You get what you expect.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

I have stayed here several times, and it is a good hotel with friendly staff.
Rooms are basic but you got tv and wi-fi (Free if you give away your e-mail). Bathroom got what you expect, with shampoo and soap in fashionable on-the-wall dispensers.
Very noisy air-condition the last time I stayed there but turning it off solved the problem for me (Unfortunately I forgot to inform them of this but if you avoid that room you will be fine)
Breakfast is typical English, and it tastes good but the price is a bit steep. Needs more ham and cheeses, and some proper bread.

Short way to shopping centre and cinema.

We stayed here mid August for one night prior to a cruise. Arrived around midday and room was available on 3rd floor with view over port area. Room was small but as expected.
We dined in and had no complaints, the waitress was excellent. Very friednly and attentive. Also had breakfast which was fine. Overall a great place to stay for one night.

I was looking for a house to let in Southampton and had to spend several days in a hotel. Ibis is something I'm used to so the tiny room wasn't a surprise for me. Not very clean, but not dirty. Breakfast is OK, dinner is far from being good and served very slow. West Quay shopping center with its foodcourt is in a short walking distance, and if you don't want to walk and don't care on your weight TGI Fridays and Macdonalds are in 50 m. The hotel is in a 3 min. walk from railway station, coach station and bus stops, 10 min. to city center - so it's a convenient place to get everywhere quickly. Good bed - really good. Good basic accomodation for short buisiness. Nothing more.

Room Tip: Rooms with odd numbers are a little more silent - look parking, even numbers look buisy road and rai...

Good points close to the town, Clean and tidy, Breakfast included in our Package good and plentiful.
Bad points Bar prices a bit steep for this type of hotel. Room very basic with not very much space. Staff not over friendly.
We stayed on a cruise and stay package with the parking for a fortnight. We have stayed in a few hotels in Southampton on this kind of deal. We can say this was by far our least favourite and would only use again if all alternatives where full.
It was no cheaper then the Holiday Inn for example yet the bedroom and bathroom where tiny in comparison.
Found the lounge area drab with no atmosphere and the staff from the bar area keep going walk about. I had to go to reception and ask some one there to get any one to serve us. This was not just the odd occasion it was most times any one wanted serving.
It is typical Ibis standard but it was the cheaper Ibis standard and not the one we was supposed to be in.
Why do Ibis have the same names for their hotels yet supposedly offer different standards

Stayed here for a night as a stopover from Bournemouth to Peppa Pig World. The hotel is reasonably close to both places. Has a modern feel . Service is cheerful and efficient. Checkin took just a minute - checkout took even lesser time. Breakfast for £8 per head (kids under 14 eat free) was a fairly good spread - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, hash brown, croissants, cereals, juices etc. All in all - the place is excellent for the price. Only minor drawbacks - not close to anything excelpt a TGIF and MacDonalds. Rooms slightly small - but we were 3 in a room so I can hardly complain.
