“GOOD VALUE”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Stayed here the weekend of 24/26 March, the check-in was fast and the room whilst small was comfy. The bar was very cheap which was a nice suprise, TGI fridays was close along with the Oceanea nightclub. There is a £5 charge for the car park, i would use again the next time i'm down that way.

Stayed here for just one night, check-in went smooth and fast, rooms are what you expect from an Ibis Hotel, small but clean and functional. having to pay for internet is a bit old fashioned, internet should be a free service and many Hotels are learning, this one hasn't got it.
Mostly Polish staff who were all very helpful and pleasant. Bar lacks atmosphere as it's part of the brightly lit Lobby.
Only complaint here was the Bed, a cheap basic Hotel is fine but a bed is the Core Business and they desperately need better quality mattresses, was like sleeping on a block of cement.
24 hour parking in the centre of town for 5 pounds was very reasonable.
If they had better beds I wouls stay there again.

Room Tip: 3rd floor, front of the building offers the best views.

Thank you for your feedback, we treat all comments with the utmost seriousness and will be
investigating the matter accordingly.
In fact we are changing all our beds as part of an Ibis project all over the UK before the summer!

Stayed with friends as we were going to the Mayflower Theatre, the hotel is just a 10 minute walk away, could not ask for more, if you get a room at the front of the hotel on the top floor if there are any cruise ships in you get a wonderful view, good views anyway! Stayed before and always go back, 5 minute walk to the shops and restuarants. Only thing is if you require any extra pillows they don't do room service they keep them at the reception for you to collect, rather odd, but not a problem. Reception and bar have been updated since last there, very modern and bright, the bar is good although closed at midnight on a Saturday for hotel guests which was a shame, nevertheless good value for money and very clean, nice big beds.

There is a £5 additional charge for parking, not mentioned on booking.

Cross the car park to McDonald's and save on breakfast. Ditto to TGI Friday for a better quality evening meal in more attractive surroundings.

Stayed in Ibis Hotel, Southampton earlier this week. Booked on line, so got a favourable rate.
Hotel welcoming and staff helpful. Impressed with reception area and dining area.
Rooms are small but adequate. OK for one night's stay, but any longer and you could go stir crazy in such a small room. The down side of this hotel are the beds. They are not comfortable and seem to be no more than campbeds. Mattresses are hard and only 3 pillows between the 2 beds. I would probably choose to stay at the premier inn just up the road in future, as I know they have comfortable mattresses to sleep on and probably not more expensive than this hotel. However, the room did have a good view over to the docks where a cruise boat was moored and it was exciting to watch it sail in the evening.

Room Tip: Choose and odd number room if you want to look out on the docks - could be noisy. If you want a qui...

The hotel itself is fine - clean, adequately equipped and comfortable rooms, professional staff who a friendly but not in a gushingly trained sort of way. Breakfast was good - they have obviously only recently started offering locally produced and good quality jams, marmalade and honey and perhaps should get hold of some of the little jam bowls from French Ibis hotels. My quibble is with the surroundings - although the hotel is quite close to the city centre the space in between is filled by the parking areas of retail parks and multi-storey car parks making the walk less than pleasant. It is not Accors fault, although they were the early developers in that part of Southampton.However it is convenient for the railway station.
