    rooms were a good size however the proportions of bathroom to the overall room size was all wrong. many uncontrolled children in the swimming pool.

    Very good

    For a chain hotel the Solent really impressesd me. The room was comfortable, I was surprised to have so many channels on the tv. Many hotels only have 1-5. The room was clean and the reception staff were very helpful and pleasant.

    The restuarant staff at breakfast were without exception quite miserable. The man who greeted us did so without a smile and this seemed to set the tone. It was a shame that there were no spa treatments available

    Very good

    Friendly staff and enjoyed the use of the pool, although it wasn't clear when the children's inflatables were allowed to be used

    booked a family room on website but arrived to be told we were in a double. we paid extra for the family room and we needed a 'discussion' at reception to sort out which was inconvenient. expensive food and drink in both hotel and on site restauraunt across the road

    A beautiful hotel with a very comfortable and spacious room. Wonderful touches of free milk and newspaper on a daily basis. Free wi-fi although weak signal caused problems. Plenty of things within the hotel to keep you occupied on a long or short break. Kids will love the pool, mums will love the spa and dads will love the gym. Pub located within a minutes walk for meals or drinks. Plenty of parking, helpful staff and a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

    Superb

    For me the room was the most female user friendly, the way the dressing table and lighting was perfectly layed out with appropriately placed electrical sockets for ease of use when doing hair etc.

    I really enjoyed the level of service provided by the staff. I thought customer servicing was a dying art but everyone at the Solent behaved impeccably, despite being fully booked and no doubt under a lot of pressure. I don't ever drink instant coffee (which is provided in the rooms) and I was provided brewed coffee instead the time I needed it without fuss or additional charging. We managed to secure the very last room available for our stay and it was very good despite being only a "twin".

    A great welcome from reception staff, beautiful and comfortable room with lovely touches such as four poster bed, filter coffee, mineral water, proper milk in the fridge and quality toiletries. I couldn't fault it and will definitely use this hotel again.

    Superb

    I like the style of the hotel, the layout and general ambience. Reminds me of some American hotels of similar style - low and spread out. Appeals to me.

    The overall level of service is less than attentive, although not bad. But compared to the service mentality of the Americans and Chinese, there is something less than perfect.

    Always a good experience and the only good hotel really close to Solent Business Park

    No safe in room, the spa is rather low standard

    Guest rating

    It was convenient for our needs and for our friends to visit us for dinner.

    Very disappointing because we were given a noisy room after specifically requesting a quiet room. Following the discomfort in the first room because of workmen carrying out work in the loft space above our room, we were moved to another room (disabled room) which was not of such a high standard. Also there was also no shower cap in the bathroom which meant I had to forego my shower that evening.

    The hotel staff make life very easy and ensures that you can relax totally and recharge your batteries. The steam room and sauna are brilliant as are the pool and the wonderful relaxing spa/hot tub.

    Liked everything, good place to get together with our family who are based in Hampshire as we live in Kent.
