“Comfortable, and good value....”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

My wife and I have just completed a week's stay at this hotel, and found it to be comfortable and of good value, and conveniently located to a nearby relative. We occupied a large en-suite room immediately above the front entrance containing a double & a single bed. With the two heavy double glazed windows closed, traffic noise is very subdued, but as we always have at least one open when sleeping, initially the noise of passing traffic during the night was unsettling - but after a couple of nights, one gets used to it. For those who are seriously disturbed by night noise, it might be worth asking for a room towards the rear of the hotel. Free wi-fi (with a strong signal) is a bonus, as is the full range of Freeview TV programmes on a large modern flat screen - the en-suite toiletries were limited (bath gell, shampoo & small tablets of soap), but quite sufficient for normal needs.
As noted by most of the other travellers, breakfasts were quite comprehensive and well cooked & served, with piping hot plates (ALWAYS a good sign..!), and whilst fresh fruit is not on display amongst the cereals & fruitjuices, it's always available if asked for. It's waiter service, which is a nice touch, and the coffee is always fresh and of good quality.
The owner managers are very much hands on, frequently helping with serving the guests, and were pleasant and most obliging. For longer stays, it's worth asking for a reduction in the daily rate.
Sadly we didn't get a chance to try out Lizzies, the downstairs bar & bistro.
We would certainly stay there again.

We were on a cruise leaving Southampton on a Monday and decided that it would be a good idea to stay overnight the night before.having checked the internet my wife phoned the hotel direct and arranged a one night stay. I was given directions by the owner to the hotels location and found that having travelled from the North it was easily located on the A33, basically a straight run in from the A34 and Motorway.
We had a warm welcome and quickly parked the vehicle(more than ample parking both at the front and rear.We were allocated a room at the from which was spacious clean and tidy and the en-suite was also clean and tidy.
Had a couple of drinks from the bar and even though it was 14th October was still warm enough to sit out in the rear garden.
Breakfast was excellent, and we arranged to leave our cases whilst we had a walk into the City Centre ( approx 15 min)
What we hadnot realised was that the hotel also did stay and cruise deals where your vehicle is parked whilst on the cruise and you goto and return from the terminal by taxi.
Distance to the terminal is 3 miles and we were told to expect a 10min drive, however check how many ships are in and if like on our visit there are three then expect lengthy traffic delays. we left at 1145 in order to check in at the terminal for 1230 but only got there at 1.15 have sat in stationary traffic. Obviously not the hotels fault but a note worth taking and checking on Southamptons Docks website.

Lovely hotel and excellent food. The breakfast was particularly good. Lizzie's Bistro had a good range of dishes on the menu, but the portions are rather large. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the room was comfortable. Several guests seemed to be staying overnight before setting off on a cruise. The location is very convenient from the M3, and well-located for the University and city centre.

We had a family room for myself, wife & daughter (adult!), which was very spacious & comfortable. Staff very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in a hotel for years - freshly cooked, good choice, plenty of it & delicious! They even had Marmite & Peanut Butter available for toast!

Stayed at this hotel for our first ever family holiday with our 7.5month old. Room was a good size and at the back with made it very quiet. Room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners and all the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. They even spotted things that would be helpful to us before we did. Breakfast was delicious and efficient. Location is excellent with a nice 10 to 15 mins walk into the city center. Would not hesitate to stay here again if we had the need.

Our third stay there and obviously we would have no hesitation in recommending it. Good size bedroom which was spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast which was plentiful. Yes, book the Elizabeth hotel and you will not be disappointed.

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting our daughter, who is at the university and lives just around the corner in Portswood.We requested adjoining rooms for ourselves and our 15 year old son, but our room was very spacious and had an additional single bed, so we could easily have shared. The ensuite facilities were very good. We chose to eat out at the Cowherds inn, just five minutes walk along the road. Breakfast was excellent, and our daughter joined us, at no charge, which we really appreciated as a kind gesture.We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending it.
