« Disappointed »

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last ten years or so and may be a bit biased. However, it is excellently located and has always served our purpose. Anyone thinking of staying here should note that it is now £10 per day to park at the hotel. This is no longer a nominal amount and is up from £6 in January. It does not state this on the website only that there is a charge. Therefore, they have big notices when you arrive at reception (a bit late to tell you really). Very hot weather but no air conditioning in rooms. No fan either and no one asked if we would like one. Luckily we stopped one of the cleaners in the corridor and got a fan from her. Customer service compares poorly with Premier Inn where the fan is already in your room and switched on when you arrive. I think Accor could do a lot better here. Small pool adequate until it gets busy. Rooms adequate but starting to look like they need a refurb. Bed, typical for a hotel, great for heavy people but a little too firm for 10 stone. Breakfast buffet okay but expensive for what it is if not part of a B&B deal. Hotel is expensive really for what it is. No doubt we will return, being creatures of habit, but despite having sung the hotel's praises over the years, I am now finding it less easy to recommend.

The room need some refurbishment as it definitely looks old which is not quite what we expected from the photos shown in the website which seems to be pretty mordern. Also don’t understand why there is no hand washing facilities in the toilet.

« Mrs »

Everything was fine except when we checked out, the time was 12 noon, we went for a walk and got back to our room at 11.15 to find the maid already in our room And cleaning, she had put our personal belongings out in the hallway, when we challenged her she said she couldn’t speak English but she then told us we still had things in the safe, disgusting. We told the man at reception who couldn’t care less. When we come to Southampton again to pick up a cruise ship we certainly won’t use this hotel again, appalling behaviour and what’s worse, no one seemed to care, thought we might have been offered a free drink at the very least, but no, NOT IMPRESSED !!!,

« Bare Bones Hotel »

We stayed at this hotel for one night before a cruise. It is old and worn out. They have a business taking advantage of people going on cruises. $218 is a lot for this place. It’s not close to any shopping. The dining room was awful and expensive.

« helpful staff. Nicely decorated and furnished hotel and good food. »

From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff were very welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed a pizza and wine from the bar. Had a great night’s sleep and a lovely breakfast. Novotel Southampton was able to accommodate myself, my mum, my daughter and granddaughter in a family room so it kept the cost down. Thanks for a great stay I shall definitely book with you again.

« Breakfast was not a good experience »

Stay in general was lovely. The Executive room was very nice and we loved the pool experience. Sadly the breakfast did not live up to the rest of it and for this reason I would not want to stay again. The restaurant seemwed very disorganised but was being run by a 'manager / supervisor' who had a very abrupt and rude manner about her. My husband is Hearing Impaired and we asked if we could sit at a table at the back restaurant as it was quieter and loud noises affect his hearing aid system. We were told, in a very abrupt manner that it was just as noisy there and NO we could not sit there and gave us a table right next to a large family with children - even though there were empty tables elsewhere which would have been better. When I went to the back of the restaurant I could see empty tables and so took our cutlery to one of them - only to be given a dirty look and a shrug. Following this I found that the cooked breakfast items were running out and had to wait for replenishing. The eggs were dry as were the vegetarian sausages. Had this member of staff not been a manager I would have complained to management but who was I to go to??? I FOUND HER TO BE RUDE, NOT SYMPATHETIC TO MY HUSBANDS DISABILITY AND HER ATTITUDE WAS POOR TO SAY THE LEAST. The booking cost a lot of money and apart from the breakfast - which to my mind ruined the who experience, we loved the hotel. I would not want to stay again purely because of this.

« Satisfactory - but one major shortcoming. »

Hotel was good and great location. However, booked an accessible room for wheelchair and confirmed this. Also re-confirmed when doing online check in. On arrival was given a standard, inaccessible room. Whilst staff were accommodating and changed room. Without a problem it was just as well that you had one available. Had it not been so we could not have stayed in the allocated room. More care is needed on these matters

« Good location, room air conditioning not working. »

I like the proximity of this hotel to the train station and the city center pier. One complaint of our room was that the air conditioning did not appear to be functioning. We ended up relying on natural cool air by opening windows. Additionally, it seemed odd that the there would be no one at the front desk 24/7 and the front doors of the hotel would be locked. We woke up early to find no one at the front desk and needed to call someone out to let us out of the hotel to walk around.
