Jurys Inn Southampton
Travel Blogs from Southampton
I have to say room in Jury's Inn Southampton is the biggest room in Europe I've stayed over the years. It's a total surprise to me whistle I open the door, I couldn't help "WOW" so loud! Last time I stayed in this size of room was in Lanzarote in Africa. It was writes that I've been feeling hungry all day. Apart from the Chinese rib &chicken feet …
I am getting dangerously near to securing a job now that we are back and given that ‘normal’ life has almost resumed, I thought we should round off our blog and get it ready for publication.
Our return in late July was in advance of an action packed few weeks in what turned out to actually be a decent summer for once. First, our homecoming party at Mum and Dad’s, then my
birthday and a week later the ...
... br> We also had a look over Lord Nelsons Ship....a real man of war vessel ..guns every where.
The day out also included a harbour cruise.
That night we visited a country pub before going to the Cricketers for Dinner
Next Day after lunch Mike Led us Heathrow to drop off the hire car then catch our flight to Bangkok.
Overall we had 2 very good days. It was great to see Mike and Heather again.
... from the Goodwood Revival weekend.
We ate at the Forrester's pub that evening. A passing car managed to soak us as we walked to the pub. Like we hadn't been wet enough earlier in the day. The campsite warden had told us the pub was pretentious but we had a lovely meal and enjoyed watching the local gents in their tweed and plus fours having a quiet drink and discussing their highlights of the Goodwood Revival.
... illustrations next to the real thing. This is true Beatrix Potter land. On the way back, we tried to go onto the Ullswater Steamers but the car park was full. Turns out there is an overflow car park, which was badly signposted when we went! Our boat trip was amazing, probably due to the weather - brilliant sunshine! We downloaded an app to accompany the trip, it was interesting but repetitive. The boat was comfortable with facilities on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jurys Inn Southampton
I was made to feel welcomed. The staff were all brillant. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable, Breakfast price was high but very enjoyable and good value Now the town well Shoppers delight, the 3 shopping centres are 5 min walk from the Inn.
From the moment the taxi pulled up to the hotel, I knew things were going to be good. This is a spanking brand new hotel, very modern and chic, built (I believe) only a few months ago...and it shows. Everything was clean, neat, and new. The lobby was very warm and inviting, and the staff could not have been more polite, friendly, and accommodating. Everyone was all smiles, and always made a point to say hello whenever passing by. And the location is conveniently nearby to many restaurants, bars, shops, and the big mall.
Well we arrived eventually around 5pm after problems at another hotel in Soton (see "Dolphin Hotel".
Not value for money!
Did not have an enjoyable stay at this hotel, despite getting a £58 room.
Stayed on a Saturday night and the hotel was packed with rowdy youngsters who kept my girlfriend awake I think they were hosting some sort of prom.
The bed was a bit small probably just double sized rather than king sized.
The Check out took 45 minutes as everyone checked out on deadline at noon on the sunday - there was no express check out. We could not get in the lifts they were so busy and had to trek down the stairs with our bags.
There is no safe crossing to the hotel which is stuck in the middle of a very busy roundabout. The hotel does not have its own parking so everyone has to cross the busy road.
We stayed at Jurys for four days during the boat show,O.K we did pay over the odds because the show was in town and perhaps we were a little too critical but we were well pleased on our overall stay.This is a new hotel which is run by a young but well experienced team headed by PJ Kenny,all well appointed bedrooms which were serviced (properly)daily a well stocked bar which serves a great pint and offers a good bar menu and a mornig room offering probably the best breakfast this side of the pond on the downside the Carvery restaurant was very poor offering very little choice with not a great selection of wine either our complaint to the restaurant manager brought us the general manager and his assistant with their assurances of vast and rapid improvements which I have no doubt is already in place.I would recommend this hotel with impunity to anyone visiting the south of England.
We stayed here for one night and I can only describe it as ok! Reception staff were not the friendliest, a smile really doesn't cost anything!
We stayed at Jurys, Southampton for one night in August. You can certainly tell that it hasn't been open for very long, everything is in pristine condition.
We had a disabled room and it was huge, as was the bathroom. All very clean and tidy.
The bar in the hotel got very busy in the evening and had a good atmosphere. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning, which was good.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, giving good directions etc when asked.
The location is very good, just 10 minutes walk across the park and you are in the high street.
You can't go wrong for the price.
Nice Hotel - but security needs to be beefed up
I was awoken at 2.15am by two drunken louts trying to access my room with a dodgy key card. The Hotel bar closes at 1.30am - Are the two connected?
I reported the incident to management after breakfast. Their concern appeared to be insincere. I was told they have CCTV and security patrols.Management have not been back to me subsequently which is disappointing.
I chose the hotel primarily for its location, being only 10 mintues walk from our Southampton office.
Fantastic - you must stay here
This is a brand new hotel in Southampton that is just great. Everything was perfect from the staff to the hotel bedrooms. I could only stay for 1 night but I will definately be back.
