Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PRP01 Good stay
Had a pleasant experience at this hotel, easy check in and pleasant staff, they were very helpful. Breakfast can be a bit hectic due to the numbers using the breakfast area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jfmicklewright Good and not so good
Very polite helpful staff. Room is good - comfortable, clean light, etc
Dinner was poor _ I had too much work to travel to a nearby pub even though the staff recommended one - but such a long wait for food (even after booking my slot) that it would have been quicker.
Breakfast fairly dismal - awful croissants (dry) really sweet orange juice

This hotel worked for our needs. It was close to where we needed to be and was cheap enough to make it worth travelling down the night before. I was disappointed with the cleanliness of the high chairs but nothing a well stocked changed bag couldn't sort out!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Allyn71 poor value for money
Very hot room No air condition
Very noisey room next to motorway
Only shower room
Dissappointed could not stay to the 6/7/14 even though I'm a platinum member
Some members of reception staff very good one other did not have a clue what to do.
Food was poor compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses I've stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wackyone Good stop over
Once again we used this hotel for a stop over on our way to a cruise. It is obviously the place to stay as every other guest was on the way to a cruise!!
It is a very comfortable place with adequate food in the evening and plenty to eat at breakfast.
We found all the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful, even changing our room when we joked about wanting to stay in the same room as previously!!!
We look forward to coming back when we next cruise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rainbowdash73 Perfect for a 1-night stay
We stayed at the hotel when we were visiting Paultons Park with the children. We were only staying one night but the bed was comfortable - the sofa bed not so much but the children (age 5 and 3) were fine with it. We connected to internet easily, the bathroom was clean and there were enough towels for our needs.
We didn't eat in the hotel in the evening but the breakfast next morning was great. Toast, croissants, sausages, baked beans, scrambled egg, yoghurts and cereal - there was something for everyone and best of all it was free!
I'd definitely recommend as an overnighter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lee181 Cheap and cheerful
The room itself is fine no complaints there but the good is of poor quality and limited choice
My wife asked for some gray with her pie and veg and the waiter just looked dumbstruck as he said "gravy? We don't do that"

One night stay. Good choice. Have stayed at well known and high class hotels and not received service as good as this. We arrived as customers and left as friends. We will use Holiday Inn Express Southampton-West again when in this part of the world. Thank you to the General Manager and his staff who went the extra mile to made our stay special.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by victor 64 Great Service
We have stayed here a few times as we visit relatives nearby and each time we have had no complaints. The staff are very attentive and professional and the hotel is spotlessly clean.
A couple of points need noting however, the quality of the sausages at breakfast needs to be improved and this time I found the mattress very soft and worn which resulted in backache the following day.
All in all though a great stay as usual.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpeenIrene Knock your Socks Off Excellence
1st impressions...on arrival, quite late about 6.30 ish, Greg and Ania on duty, I was exhausted, they were both so welcoming. The lobby/breakfast area was buzzing, lots of people and children, could have been a nightmare, and they both dealt with everyone calmly and with lots of smiles and a genuine positive approach. They clearly love their jobs.
Later we came down for a drink and a burger, and still laughing and engaging with the customers, they were dealing with so many people at once and weren't fazed.
Breakfast was brilliant, again loads of kids ( we hadnt realised this hotel was handy for Peppaland?) Amelia was great we asked about beaches, and she printed off directions to the best beach! She cleared and wiped off tables, the whole time chatting to various customers and their children. there was a wonderfully relaxed, joyful feel about the whole place. My son was going to a wedding and we were looking after our granddaughter, had forgotten a white shirt. Greg printed directions to the nearest shirt shop. I was trying to cool some baby food, but the windows don't open very far, and i dropped it. Greg came and unscrewed the window so i could retrieve
it. We stay in hotels all over the world, and this one is outstanding, not just for a budget hotel, but for ANY hotel. The people here are worth their weight in gold.I train customer service, and they are knock your socks off! Greg, Ania

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldrandblover Comfortable bed in nice quiet surroundings
A pleasant hotel in really quiet surroundings so nothing to disturb the quality of sleep. Bar prices were higher than expected but I guess I don't use hotels often enough to be aware of their high prices! Although not the hotels responsibility, the entrance to the hotel access road is somewhat spoilt by the overgrown verges and hedgerows. Not a good first impression!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rainbow Chaser Great Value
For the amount that we paid you don't get a lot these days, but what we got here was excellent value. Given the rather isolated location it was good to be able to get food and drink onsite (although some real ale would have been nice!), the staff were attentive and the public areas clean.
The room was well-designed and comfortable and there was plenty of parking, all in all an ideal location for meeting and socialising as a group prior to moving on together the next day.

I've stayed here 4 times in the last 2 years the night before our cruise and its been fantastic every time, no complains what so ever. Cheap and cheerful and is an ideal location for the port and airport. This place will always been my first choice.

We had already decided to stay in the hotel for a pre-cruise night. When we got a quote for 14 days parking elsewhere, we realised that our stay at the hotel with parking would cost approximately £20 more than for parking alone elsewhere.
So what did we get for our £10 each? After a seven hour drive to Southampton we arrived at reception when the receptionist was on the phone to another guest. She finished the call in a few minutes and we had our room keys in another few minutes. We then went to our room which was not only clean but clinically clean and we unpacked. We then went to the bar for a refreshment but nobody was on duty. We waited about 90 seconds until someone appeared and took our order. They remained on duty until we left.
In the evening we had dinner from the limited but adequate menu. The food was promptly served and satisfying.
We had taken advantage of the Cruise Parking facility which we found staffed by mature persons who were helpful, efficient and friendly. This is a good service which we will use again.
Overall we had a delightful experience at this hotel and look forward to returning.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MBTT Awful avoid unless desparate!
needs a good manager to get the place sorted out.
kitchen staff need some training and get someone who can cook rather than re heating meals in microwaves.
Simple plain good quality food is better than a variety of spoilt food that's inedible.

I have stayed with plenty of holiday inns world wide and I always look forward to the breakfast.
On this occasion it was the breakfast options that I was disappointed with followed by general tidiness and orderliness of the property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nutty75 Great Stay at Southampton West
Stay here for a night whilst visiting Bournemouth/Southampton area. Had a lovely family room. Clean and comfortable. The kids love the free wifi. Rooms warm on a summer evening but with the window open and the fan soon cooled down. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful - lots of variety . We especially like the hot chocolate and different choice of coffee. It was busy but easily found space for the 6 of us . Staff were very helpfully and friendly. Will definitely come back to stay again .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin 1958 Improvements compared to my last stay
Staff at reception very helpful and quick quality of service in regard the evening meal..
As a gold elite member I would have appreciated being told I had a disabled room but did not have a problem with this although the hotel was very very busy and they had to open a separate room for breakfast at 7.30am
The staff were very good and ordered me a taxi although it is £10 in a taxi from Southampton Railway Station
