Very expensive for an "overnight" hotel
The location was very handy for us.
Fresh, clean, nicely decorated and good range of breakfast items. A warm bedroom and very clean bathroom. We were surprise that there was a limited choice of drinks in the room and no biscuits
easy to find and to use the restaurant at night offer a poor menu
Location. Central for Southampton and the University area The rooms were cold as background heating kept at 14 degrees celsius when no one in room and took a long time to heat up.
A great hotel would go back in the future lovely breaksfast a great location for shopping The smoke alarm going off at 3.30 am in the am by a person who was smoking where they shouldnt have been !! hope they got fined
Everything was OK, friendly staff, i was a bit surpriced, hotel s located near M27 motorway, but room was very quiet.Restaurant was also OK, i missed full english brekafast and more food in menu
Breakfast : Polite and helpful staff Restaurant in hotel could have been more seperate from lounge area No other restaurant close by
all of my stay no english breakfast
very pleased with all areas of the hotel ,i have no complaints at all.
Noisy bar area with leaking roof
Really good location for West Quay shopping Only grip was that the pillows were really hard and uncomfortable
No Air Con in room only a broken floor standing fan.
We have now stayed twice at hotel and have found staff helpful and atmosphere very relaxing n/a
Staff were charming and very helpful. Location fantastic and bar extensive Hotel is a bit dated and not worthy of 5 star
The high standard of service
Excellent breakfast included, nice bar First room had (147) some intermittent mechanical noise but I requested move and they complied
Location, leisure facilities Being woken by cleaners moaning about other cleaners not doing there job very loud
Room was large, well appointed and clean. More than I needed for the night, but recommended to me and with a late arrival I preferred a traditional hotel. No breakfast or coffee.
the view from our window the breakfast wasnt as good as i expected, no pancakes!
The whole experience - staff - accommodation - food N o
Friendly informative staff, excellent breakfast, unique design of bedroom, bathroom and lighting Bedroom was too warm at night. difficult to open windows and would have been noisy
food in the restraunt was fantastic,staf were very friendly
Friendly and helpful staff Soiled clothing items from a previous guest left in the room.
the rooms were a good size and warm. there were no hand towels or wash cloths in room.
ony the above, rudeness of a member of staff
Good breakfast Uncomfortable beds. No decent tv. Swimming pool out of use. Small rooms.
Good location nice gym and small pool a good hotel for business or leisure.I was however charged twice on my credit card and this was resolved by the management Food was expensive considering the local restaurants that were available in the area. GBP13.50 for breakfast seems on the high side when the IBIS Hotel was half of that price
adam was very helpful breakfast price too high
Convenient for cruise Paying for car park
The exercise room is fantastic and so are the people. The breakfast was amazing, clean, and hot. Need to replace the carpeting on floor 4. The bathrooms are new. the furniture in good shape, but the carpeting is horrible.
room decorated very nicelly with luxury touches in a very nice refubrished 19 century wearhouse. Very nice coffee maker in the room, comfortable bed and the Italian food at the restaurant was great the hotel is part of a restaurant downstairs and have no proper lobby, looks more like a pub with rooms upstairs. The room was very hot but a very noisy fan provided. People coming from the restaurant stayed talking laudly and smoking under my room window until late hours, not ideal if you have to wake up earlier next day. Wireless internet did not work .
Smart modern rooms - very helpful staff - excellent food in restaurant Nothing - it was spot on
Staff were friendly, good having restaurant underneath the hotel. We arrived late so this worked out very well. Think that breakfast should be included within the rate charged for the room.
Very nice decor Much to noicy - My room was right above a very busy street
Well appointed room with modern decor. Spacious bathroom with good shower. Liked the finishing touches of bathrobes and slippers. All staff polite and attentive and would definetely stay again at the reduced rate of £100 per night. Had lunch in the restaurant and it was very good. Would recommend. Liked everything! Having Stayed in Southampton hotels before (but not this one) I think other hotelliers could learn from these standards of comfort and cleanliness. Perhaps price could include continental breakfast.
This hotel and the rooms are very nicely decorated. The beds are super comfortable. The bathroom design very well thought out. The staff is professional and very gracious. We were very pleasantly surprised upon checking-in and would not hesitate to return. The only negative would be the lack of air conditioning and our stay was during a "heat wave".
Excellent location for transit to cruise ships, rooms well presented, food of a high standard, staff relations good.
Car parking was poor. Only just enongh spaces
close to the red jet and cruise ports and good food T.V did'nt work, very hot in the room, no room service just a few things that if put right would make an excellant hotel
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The noise from traffic during the night
Food and menu choice was excellent and staff very attentive and helpfull. Fullers Hotel so beer choice very good. Large room so not crampted.
Friendly staff, clean and cosy rooms, good breakfast in lovely restaurant.
room, staff food nothing
I most enjoyed the hospitality of the owners. I got a bigger room than that I'd booked. Nice restaurant and also nice breakfast.
As described- lovely rooms, friendly service, well located. None
Excellent facilities, staff. Short stay but most enjoyable and will recommend to others
Food was excellent. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Room was a very high standard and price was reasonable. No bad points
Excellent Inn, with superb rooms, and the best pub food we have ever found. Good and helpful staff Bed a little soft.
Good location for new forest area and we found the room excellent. all the staff were very pleasant . Food we found was too heavy with sauces but that was a personal choice. Would definitely use the Inn again when in the area
Friendly and helpful staff. Very pleasant location with excellent pub attached for a quiet drink and also for dinner. Good pub food for the price and good beer. Rooms very comfortable and nicely decorated, also quite spacious. Room temeperature was perfect (although it was possible for guests to adjust it if necessary) - we were there in November. The included breakfast was excellent - a very good choice of traditional cooked food (including vegetarian) as well as pastries, cereals etc. My wife and I definitely plan to return for a longer stay. Very little, if anything, to complain about. The vegetarian dish that my wife ordered for dinner was a bit bland, but there were at least two other vegetarian dishes on the menu which may well have been better.
Excellent room, very comfortable. Ideal location.
This is one of the most unique hotels that I have ever had the experience of visiting. The history of the property is fascinating - originally part of the White Star Line, to whom the Titanic belonged. The staff could not have been any more accommodating! This hotel is a keeper!
It was extremely handy for accessing our cruise ship at Gate 4 and served our purpose very well. Not quite the traditional hotel we expected but after initial surprise we found it to be comfortable and convenient for our purpose
Excellent decor and facilities ,partculary good bathroom. No
Extremely proffesional and friendly staff
Finding somewhere with a New Year's package was ideal, as 3 course dinner, bar tickets & breakfast were all included in the price
The White Star Tavern is in a great location for using as a base as everything is within walking distance. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast menu with food freshly prepared. Looking forward to staying here again.
Nothing Exceptionally noisy. Dirty linen. Had to go and find the receptionist in the bar. I cannot fathom how this place managed to get a 5 star rating. Perhaps I should have been warned by the "tavern" in the name.
We were really inpressed with our room it was very clean, the bathroom was fantastic loved the shower. The hosts were very nice would go again hoping for a upgrade next time,
Nice Area bed comfortable. Overall good accomadation but a couple of staff were far too busy for the number of people, ie 15 minutes to check out, restaraunt fully booked when we arrived, bar person no idea where we sould park the car which is a major problem as you can only wait for two hours. Very exspensive ie £8 for a 250ml glass of Pinot which I think is ott. £5 for a bacon sarnie. All eating however was of a comparable price so take plent of money.
pleasant and helpful staff and very clean with cheery decor! loved the extra snuggly blanket and pillows provided in the room, plus had lots of toiletries which was very helpful for those of us that do not want to check bags on the plane. :) the showerhead pressure was non-existent and light came through the curtains making it a little difficult for sleep but still generally good! kind of wish they did room service though!
Breakfast should of been included for the price of the room
To be honest, not very much.
Staff were friendly, location was excellent, breakfast was great!
It was convenient for attending a concert at the Guild Hall. Car parking! You should not have to pay to park at the hotel. Arrangements should be made for customers to stay free of charge.
food very good.staff very helpful.most important of all two minutes from all the shops.all happy. no.
The friendliness and helpflness of the staff - they volunteered information without even being asked, about where to go etc. N/A
Friendly checkin How can i comment if i do not use this space for complaints? I do not like your questionairre and am abandoning it.
Modern, clean and good value for money. Not really - rooms were simple but fine for what was needed and paid for.
Staff- helpful and friendly Lots of stairs - no lift
In all honesty could not wait to leave Bed covers covered in stains and blood, carpet dirty with sticky substance on it
The service and attitude offerered by staff was very professional and friendly. Good atmosphere. Good food - cooked breakfast simple but delicious, best cod and chips I've had for many years in the evening. Few 'end of season' rough edges in room should have been attended to - window sash cord broken, toilet roll holder broken etc. but all minor and didn't spoil stay.
The room,the staff and the menu No Parking
I needed to cut short my stay to only 1 night at short notice, Reception very helpfull and understanding, no question of me paying for the cancelled night even at short notice....Very Impressed and will return
Location excellent - right next to the Red Jet (fast ferry), buses, taxis and in the middle of Cowes main street. Bed very comfortable. Bedroom very quite despite being over a pub with a live band performing The toilet needed some lime descaler or similar (the rest of the bathroom was very clean)
made to feel welcome staff very helpful no on site parking
Comfortable clean room . Being on the top floor away from bar, kitchen noise etc. The breakfast table did not appear to be totally clean. also the room was noisy with excessive sound from chairs being moved.
breakfast was great !! the quality of room low ceilings and space not good
The staff were extremely accommodating with every request. We had 7 bikes and after completing a charity ride, they allowed us to use a spare room to shower before heading back to London. A fantastic place to stay, with great food, buzz and ever so helpful. I would stay there again if I travelled to the IOW. N?A
Ease of transport. Wonderful services and staff.
Available and reasonably conveniently sited for the airport You can't open the window at all without letting in the rain - and I was too hot
The hotel is in need of a refurbishment, and the receptionist was didn't bother to say goodbye upon my departure, merely taking the card out of my hand without saying anything or even looking at me. The heating didn't work in my first room, and the manager refused to give me a refund. There are also signs on the tap water warning that you cannot drink it- so take your own water. Other guests were also very noisy at night time, and I overheard one mention that he was almost arrested the previous night for running naked through Southampton. I would suggest that this hotel is more suited to that demographic.
location,friendly staff and excellent service No lift
The staff were very friendly. Breakfast room back back up and running.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was first class. n/a
Near city; warm in room; excellent breakfast; friendly staff Bathroom was cold - valve on radiator did not work; Hot water-only warm.
Overall the hotel was very good with excellent service. Good value. The shower was a little cramped and stairs would be difficult for older people
Bathroom window very high had to climb on basin to open and close. Extractor fan didnt work. Cold water tap labled not drinking. Suggest you remove cold water tank and have just mains water.
breakfast was excellent our room was on the end of the corridor, it was very cold, we had to ask for a portable heater.
It was very comfortable and friendly. Convenient to my personal needs visiting relations at the University, and offered 10% discount in a couple of nearby eateries. Easy to find and plenty of shops and bars nearby. The breakfast was a self service buffet and more than adequate. However, for the amount of staff that were around during the breakfast service I did feel that they could have been a little more forthcoming.
