Overall pretty good but there didn't seem to be enough staff - had to queue to check in (one person on reception) and queue to check out and sat amongst dirty tables that hadn't been cleared at breakfast. Long wait for room service too.

I would stay here again. We stayed in a deluxe room which was on the ground floor, with a view of the golf course. Very quiet. Both liked the room as soon as we saw it. Very tastefully done. Would look even better if the pictures were more brightly coloured. Liked the Scottish touches due to Macdonald's being a Scottish company such as Tartan blankets on beds and good quality Arran Lavender smellies. Pleased that there was an iron and ironing board in the room as usally in hotels you have to ask at Reception to borrow them. Also there was a fridge which is often missing. They provided good quality bottled water and the towelling bathrobes were thick and soft. You could even smell lavender on them which was a lovely finishing touch. The food and drinks are rather pricey and they would probably sell more if they put the prices down or did ocassional special offers. The communal areas are very tasteful. Scottish music in the breakfast room sometimes would have been lovely.

Although the picture shows the main building, rooms are actually in addition barn like building facing out to a pleasant terrace. However they need sound proofing, I could hear TV in the adjacent rooms and even hear other guests snoring! Room was not as clean as I would like, too much dust. TV is on the wall but the way it's done prevents you using the remote control. I had an issue with lost car keys and the duty manager was very helpful and attentive. Hotel has a large woodland garden available to guests, I walked or ran its perimeter daily.

Room was very spacious when considering the price for a double was well under £100.
The only minor negative was noticed when I tried to call the reception on my way back to the hotel from function at approximately 23:00 hours. Although the hotel phone number did get me through to the automated switchboard, once I selected the extension I required, the phone line disconnected.
Aside from that one small issue it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay and highly recommended for future travellers.

Stayed here to go to a gig at The Joiners venue which was literally a ten minute walk away. The room was a great size with a comfortable bed and had a nice bathroom. I was staying out late so the staff gave me a special key fob to be able to access the hotel after the pub had closed. The staff were really lovely and very helpful with everything I needed throughout my stay. Had breakfast in the morning which was cooked very well and tasted delicious. Overall this is a great place to stay, good value for money, and a hotel I would highly recommend to other people. I will certainly be staying there again!

We were stranded at Southampton airport and wanted a nice hotel as we were losing a night out of a short weekend abroad. Felt the hotel looked amazing but was good, just not as exceptional as the pictures showed. The golf course was great to walk around and the reception staff were helpful - the dining staff were OK and the pool etc had kids doing swimming lessons! So, not as 'spa"-like as we'd have liked! The entire experience as fine, just not as indulgent as we had hoped it would be. The burgers were good!

Hotel was clean but very busy. We had booked a 'family' room which was a normal room with the sofa as a bed. It was far too small for a family of 4. Luckily our daughter stayed with friends so wasn't so bad for 3.
On the second day of our visit the water was cold for the first shower, but was hot enough when the second person got in.
Breakfast was mayhem. Kept running out of cutlery and crockery. It was very messy and the food very basic. Glad we didn't eat in the evening. Breakfast was enough to cope with.

Set on a broad inlet, Southampton is the largest city in southern England and cruise capital of Northern Europe. Some of the world’s largest liners are based here and many more visit regularly. The centre is modern but retains several historic buildings, two excellent art galleries, two theatres, plus good eating, drinking and shopping. Ocean Village leisure complex at the marina features a new museum of aviation.
