Wood chip wallpaper? Really? And since when does a hotel bar close at midnight on a Saturday? This hotel is basic and boring and overpriced for what you get. Rooms are tired and dated. Poor room facilities. Whole place needs a revamp.

Another excellent pre-cruise stay last night and we decided to use the restaurant and was not disappointed. Excellent choice of food and good wine list. Breakfast was superb as well, I just love the package machine, run out of maple syrup so had to use honey instead lol 😂 we are staying here again in July before our summer cruise....

I often spend a few days at Novotel Southampton with my autistic son. The hotel has a pool which is usually quiet in the mornings and he can enjoy himself. He dislikes busy pools. The first morning I was woken up to hammering upstairs. When I phoned down to reception to enquire what was happening I was told quite rudely...

Nice hotel. Great location for business or cruise ship passengers. Very good value. The building had central climate control and I found the room a bit cold. (I'm from South Florida). I brought this up to staff and they immediately put a good space heater in the room. Solved. The breakfast area is fantastic. Very welcoming, great staff and superb...

We come to an annual function at this hotel. The bottom line is that it's not cheap bearing in mind it's a budget hotel. Rooms are basic but clean and with a comfortable bed. Complimentary water appreciated. Reasonable night sleep. Food seems to have gone "downhill" and was disappointing - largely due to three course meal portions were meagre and...

It's a chain hotel and has its usual standards. Little bit dated in the rooms, particularly the old, odd wash basins with French doors for privacy. There was no Sky channels and normal Rv was dull. Beds extremely comfortable as were the pillows. Breakfast was very nice, we enjoyed it, particularly the verge sausages. Good selection, well presented and nice...
