Just spent 2 days at the Hilton Ageas Bowl Southampton for our wedding anniversary. The hotel was new and plush. Room was light, modern and comfortable with free view and large screen tv. walk in shower was very good. The view was lovely and we could watch cricket for no charge! Recommend you go for a room with a view. Restaurant staff were absolutely brilliant, really friendly and attentive. The hotel itself was not in the centre of Southampton, which was about 15 minutes via the M27.

We booked this hotel based on the rate given by guests. The staff were friendly. The room we stayed in was okay. Food was excellent and if you have children, they offer a really good price for the food. (three course meal of good quality ). There is a wide range range of choices for breakfast (if you booked a breakfast with the hotel). I could say, you're spoilt for choice. My children enjoyed the pool and I managed to use the sauna once during our stay. The lobby is also children friendly, ie. Xbox, Imac and play area by the lobby. I would definitely recommend this hotel especially to guests with children. N.B. There is a parking charge, £6.00 per day, so take that into consideration in your budget. However, most hotels in the city centre charge a parking fee anyway.
"One night stay including massage and Spa facilitie"
Stayed one night and used the pool, sauna and steam room followed by a hot stone massage in the afternoon. Room lovely and bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast service a little slow and expensive. Shame jacuzzi no longer exists and pool quite cold but not unusable. Relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the massage. Staff pleasant and helpful.
The hotel has been recently renovated to a high standard. It is a very quaint and quirky old coaching inn. Nice bar with open fire, good beers and a very friendly welcome. All the staff were extremely friendly, proficient and competent.
The room a superior double had a four poster bed and was very comfortable, the magnificent bathroom was next to the bedroom and had a wonderful rainforest style shower and a roll top bath. The room was huge.
The Inn offered a good evening menu and you are able to eat in the bar or the restaurant.
The inclusive breakfast offers a small buffet with cereals, pastries and a small selection of fruit and juices. There is also a comprehensive cooked menu to follow offering a good selection.
It's hard to find any major faults and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will return should I need a place to stay in the general vicinity in the future.
My only slight niggle was with the central heating, the extremely competent radiators have no thermostatic controls, the only way to attempt temperature controls is via the large valve, my fruitless efforts were to no avail, in the end you simply have to resort to on or off.
Well done The Crown Inn, I had a lovely 1 night stay whilst travelling on business.
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.
