Excellent modern hotel built in 1994. Opposite the Cruise terminal, WestQuay market with cinema just 5mins walkable with another market place near Ikea including McDonald’s etc etc. 10 min walk to high street with eateries and stores like Co-op, tesco express, Lidl, Subway, Burger King etc etc or drive to the high street(paid but v limited parking on the high street, so better walk!)

Wonderful good size indoor swimming pool(1.2 metre deep so ok for both kids and adults) with a hot jacuzzi tub for adults in the pool area(7am-9pm)
Had a gym for adults too with free tea/coffee just at the pool/spa reception.
The breakfast was ok as usual in any other hotel with same menu on all days I guess so(we stayed in v good sized family room).

The rooms and bath were good and clean though a little fridge/freezer would have been great in nowadays times(there was plenty of unused spaces in closets/under table for it).

Staff was v good and ever helpful. The only thing we tried for the first time was not to use their housekeeping service on the second day(called
Go Green and you can then have a £5 discount adjusted on the bill or can take it off your overnight parking charges of £10(but you’ll probably need to tell the reception staff to adjust this fiver! Now the downside of this service was our room obviously wasn’t restocked for any tea/coffee sachets or toiletries and even the toilet rolls let alone the beds etc which one would expect not to me made as we opted out ourselves‍♂️
So this was the first and last time we ever opted out of not getting our room cleaned the next day! Pointless

And finally the small car park which most of the times was tight considering the good number of rooms this hotel has and other party guests too coming in their cars that I dared not take my car out in the evening especially(the parking would then spill up over the yellow lines just around the entrance area to the hotel lobby.

Will go again, excellent under rated hotel!
Can up their game a lot if they even make the subtle changes their customers expect or suggest.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Grand Harbour.

The staff were very nice indeed and a special shout out to the doorman for being very helpful.

Our room was ready promptly and was very bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable and everything you expect a nice hotel to be.

Breakfast was also very enjoyable with plenty of variety.

We used to stay at the Holiday Inn across the street but sadly we experienced some poor staff and rooms that badly need refurbishment and so we decided to give the Grand Harbour our business.

We booked this hotel last minute . My husband and I had lunch there a number of years ago and it was first class. Things have changed. We booked a delux double room. When we walked in there was a child’s put up bed in the room, strange. The room was dated and dirty under the glass tops.

As for the Marco Pierre White dinning experience the restaurant is just a glorified burger joint. If we had wanted that sort or dining we could have gone to our local pub. From a place that calls itself the Grand you would expect a fine dining experience .

Hence we checked out and came home.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at the Grand Harbour Hotel Southampton.

I was very concerned to read your comments and disappointed that we fell short in so many areas. I would like to assure you that we do take all guest feedback very seriously and I have discussed your comments in full with my management team who will investigate the issues you have raised and carry out retraining where necessary.

I do hope that you will reconsider your thoughts about returning to the hotel and that we will be able to welcome you back on some future occasion.

We have stayed at this hotel so many times we have lost count. Furthermore we are always so impressed that we have paid for stopovers as treats for family members several times. We really don’t have a bad word to say about any aspect of our recent stay or in fact any of our previous visits. We really enjoyed ourselves again this time and will definitely be back. Love this hotel.
