This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the City Ship Pier which is were my cruise was leaving from. The rooms were clean, and the bed was comfortable. The hotel has ample parking and is close to the West Quay Mall which houses most of the top UK Stores. Also there's Boots Pharmacy, IKEA, and several restaurants, movie theatres including IMAX - all within walking distance to the hotel. I would stay here again.
Think car park charge should be included in hotel price, house keeping staff were excellent on our floor ( 2nd ) needed feather pillows plus sheet got them by the time we arrived back at hotel, breakfast staff were very helpful and nice, food was good but as all buffet breakfasts not the hottest
The Dolphin was the perfect choice for our family. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, and the Titanic museum. The rooms were clean, staff very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Checkout was at 12 but they allowed us to stay until 1 pm.
The hotel was really not what we had expected, it was a nice surprise when walking into the reception - as the pictures had not done it justice. We had booked a room for three and the only problem we had was that the room had not been set up appropriately, but after talking to reception this was rectified immediately. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. The only downside was that the room was quite warm, even with all the windows open. But that is hardly too much of a grumble. It was conveniently located with a bus service near by, striaight to the city centre.

Fascinating history related to the battle of Trafalgar.Admiral Villeneuve who led the French fleet, was billeted at the hotel after the battle and many French sailors were kept in the village of Bishops Waltham. The room we had, although on the small side, was nevertheless very comfortable. The shower worked perfectly, tea and coffee were provided in the room and the staff members we met were extremely pleasant and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend the Crown Inn to anyone and would certainly stay there again if visiting the area.
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.
