“Highfield House Hotel - friendly staff, great breakfast, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

This is the second time we've stayed here, and will stay again on our next visit to Southampton.

It is a comfortable, clean hotel with free parking, included breakfast and wifi.

On both occasions we've stayed the staff were polite, smiley and helpful.

The Highfield House Hotel is the ideal place to stay if you are going to visit Southampton university. It's only 10 minutes leisurely walk away and offers comfort and prices that even the big chain business hotels cannot beat. Added to that, it has a good sized car park that you don't have to pay extra for and the value for money stacks up. The final crowning glory is the fact that breakfast is also included and it's not just a piece of soggy toast or a bit of limp bacon, but a genuine good choice of quality full English and continental breakfast treats that put to shame many hotels that cost MUCH more.
The room I stayed in was nicely appointed and a good size with a very comfortable bed.
All of the staff I met were pleasant and helpful and seemed genuinely eager to help make my stay a good one.
All in all a very pleasant place to stay which offered really good value in nice surroundings. I WILL stay there again.

I've stayed here for a few days while visiting colleagues as the University of Southampton. While the hotel is within walking distance to the university, it is a bit far off the city center. The rooms are typical english style. Seem a bit old and tired, but in reasonable shape and clean. Breakfast is nice. Free wireless Internet service was quite good most of the time. Overall, it is a nice hotel for an unassuming business trip, but not a holiday spot.

Visiting relatives in Southampton for the weekend, so wanted comfortable but reasonably priced accommodation. This hotel certainly delivered both. Parking was easy, it was ideally located for the University area (which was a bonus for us but may obviously not be ideal for everyone), the staff were polite and helpful, the room was fairly compact but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit tired-looking, but for one night this didn't bother us too much. The beds were comfy and the room warm. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, the food seemed to be good quality and again, the staff were helpful. We will definitely be back again in the future.

Room Tip: Next time, we are going to request a room in the newer part of the building

Stayed one night on 3rd Feb, with my wife. Staff were at all times very friendly, helpful regarding excellent adjoining restaurant (10% discount on presentation of room key). Slight problem with TV speedily resolved. Great full English all-you-can-eat breakfast. On a very cold night the room was warm and cosy. Parking was easy and free. Location near the University is fine.Yes, the overall decor may be a bit tired, and the rooms and bathroom on the small size, but for £49 you get what you pay for. It suited us down to the ground and we would go there again without demur.

Room Tip: No lifts so try for ground floor if you have heavy luggage
