We booked this hotel well in advance as we were going on an 11 day cruise sailing from Southampton. We found the hotel easily with the sat nav and they have ample parking. You will need to pay £10.00 per night however for parking there. Everyone was very helpful, they even printed our Portugese locater forms out for us before we left. There are ample places to eat next door, MacDonalds and TGIF's and the centre of town is just a ten minute walk. The rooms were spotless and the staff excellent. Ideal if you are driving to Southampton to board a cruise liner, bu took early because the hotel was full of people going on the same cruise as us.

Budget means budget, but needs were met. Ideal location for drop off overnight for Cruise departure. In a cluster of Novotel, Ibis and Ibis Budget. Located at the rear of a TGI Fridays and McDonald's with a nearby shopping outlet. West Quay shopping centre within walking distance, as is IKEA. Parking is £10 per night (if not included in room rate) - breakfast is also additional cost if not in room rate. Rooms are basic (as Budget would suggest). Small TV, sink, blind over windows, separate WC in room and built-in shower closet. AC unit with dial control and cups for water. Plenty of electrical sockets and lights above the bed etc. Could do with a lick of paint and a redecorate here and there, but all in all serves an overnight purpose what with location to the docks.

Perfect for a night pre cruise departure, location is excellent Stayed one night on 28th February in room 325, very secure hotel as you need the key card to get to any of the floors or operate the lift. Check in very quick and efficient, room was very clean, very basic and although the bed seemed very hard I slept great/ Small TV in the corner, shower gel provided. Almost looked very clinical in the room. Asda close by, as well as a few places on the industrial estate, inc Mcs and KFC, 15 minute walk to the town, station is 5 minutes as is the cruise terminal I forgot my phone charger and boarded my cruise ship but got off to come and see if I could find it, Bruno went out of his way to help resolve the issue and obtain me a charger, cannot praise this man enough for his help and customer service skills

Our stay here was clean, comfortable and very handy for our needs. Although the hotel itself does not serve food (apart from the continental breakfast), we were able to nip to the main Ibis hotel for a good priced evening meal. No coffee making facilities unfortunately and so went to nearby Macdonald's for one in the morning. Staff welcoming and friendly. Would stay again.
