We attended one of their tribute nights, the Bootleg Bee Gees. It was just the two of us for a couples get away, just the one night. We were mighty impressed. The staff were excellent, great attitude, very professional. The evening meal (part of the tribute night) was very good, as was the breakfast. The hotel room was well laid... More

Despite our booking not going through the hotel staff went the extra mile to ensure we got a room with bunk beds which also had lovely gifts for the kids in them. Lovely spa with great pool and an amazing breakfast in the morning. Lovely quiet room on 3rd floor and even with evening receptions going on we didn't hear... More

We were lucky enough to have the Solent hotel as our venue for our wedding. As soon as we looked around we knew it was the perfect venue. The staff were absolutely amazing on the build up to the wedding with their dedicated wedding coordinator and on the day their functions manager was just incredible. We were able to enjoy... More

We stayed here for one night, not our first visit but our first in a while. We managed to check in earlier than expected, newly refurbished room and it felt as if we were the first to ever stay in it. Room was so cosy and comfortable. Soft sheets, lovely coffee machine.

Stayed over night as it was on a Secret Escapes deal and I knew it was a lovely hotel. Used the spa facilities and ate in the bar as there was a wedding reception being held that night. Would stay again if I found a deal as it is convenient for Gunwharf and Whiteley.

This was an unexpected stay for us and we were very pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a suite with a four poster bed which was very nice. Enjoyed a swim and sauna before our delicious evening meal.

I recently stayed at the Solent Hotel on a Spa break with my partner, We cannot fault the actual hotel and the staff are friendly and has a lovely feel to it but the Spa changing rooms and pool area took the edge off the trip.

My mothers wake was handled with care, sensitivity and utmost professionalism. Cannot thank the Solent Hotel enough, right from our first meeting with Claire Davies to organise this sensitive event and especially the restaurant manager Tom Hopkins and his staff who honoured everything we wished for to create the atmosphere required. Many thanks.
