“Oz Visitor Perspective!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We spent a week in Southampton after a lovely cruise. Very happy with the location of the hotel. Good central location for town centre, buses and trains. Room very nice, bed comfortable, bathroom a nice size, though room could have been larger. Only complaint really was the awful very worn towels. I had to ask for extra towels every day as 1 each was not sufficient because of the quality or lack of it. Staff very helpful helping me get Wi Fi which was good. Being an overseas traveller to UK and staying for a week, not much room for cases, and hanger space minimal. If we weren't able to get out every day would have found the room on the small side. But on on the whole very happy with our stay here.

Room Tip: Good for a weekend stay. We were on the 3rd floor nice and quiet.

My wife and I stayed here over a weekend while attending a Cricket match at the Ageas Bowl. I had some knowledge of the city and wanted a centrally placed hotel as I did not plan to rent a car. The Ibis is ideal for this as one can hop on the bus ( U1a) at the airport and travel to Central Station (£2). The hotel is three minutes walk away. Don't expect 5 star luxury, but, having said that, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff are friendly and efficient. When booking on- line one can opt for self service breakfast, which is the usual fried fare plus cereal, fruit, yoghurt, tea/coffee. The hotel is a short walk from the largest shopping mall in the city, and right next door to Macdonalds and TGI Fridays, if your taste runs in that direction. The hotel suits my purpose admirably, and I will certainly stay there again.

Book this hotel for 3 night while on business trip to Southampton. Overall satisfy with the services provided. The breakfast was not the best but enough for gaining energy. The room was clean but no kettle supplied. The environment was quiet and there are some shopping stores locared in walking distance from the hotel. Overall happy with the provided.

Stayed here a few times while visiting Southampton before moving here. Thought the hotel was really great value for money. Room was spotless and had a really comfy bed, air conditioning, free wifi, TV, tea and coffee making facilities which is pretty much everything we needed for our stay.
We had a few drinks at the bar before going out for the night and thought the service was great and the prices were reasonable. Stopped off to have a few more after our night out and were happy to find it was open so late and that the staff were still really friendly and helpful even though it was getting late and we were probably quite tipsy.
The location was perfect as it was right by the train station and had restaurants, nightlife and west quay shopping centre all close by.
Checkout in the morning was quick and easy. Overall a great stay and really good value for money.

Southampton isn't the sort of place I'd go for a holiday but was a necessary location to prevent the stress of a 200 mile trip on the day of a cruise.
The hotel is set near to a shopping centre and across the road from the docks. There are several similar hotels in the vicinity together with the usual fast food places.
I like Ibis, you get a cheap(ish) clean and tidy hotel close to where you want to be , so are there any negatives?
Well be careful.My son warned me that choosing a city based hotel for a Saturday was probably a mistake and could attract stag and hen parties and the related problems that entails. Needless to say his prophecy came true and we had a stag party in the room opposite ours, and the noise, booze, general threat was worrying...for a time, then suddenly they all went quiet and we had no further bother that night. Now whether that was the hotel taking action or them going out all night I do not know, and overall it had little effect on our stay.
However ,it has made me wary of staying there again at a weekend, so you may wish to consider a more out of town location, like a motorway service travel lodge...it could be quieter!

Room Tip: Good luck,it's a lottery
