The Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin is a 4 Star hotel that has stood in the heart of the city for over 500 years. Perfectly located near the main port it provides a great base to stay before and after your cruise or trip to the Isle of Wight. Within walking distance of Southampton's main shopping areas, historic harbour, Sea City museum, parks and city walls. Hampshire's top attractions including Beaulieu, the New Forest, Paultons Park and Marwell Wildlife Park are only a short drive away.

Good for Cruise Ships but poor otherwise

Pleasant and helpful staff, but poor room which seemed to us to be a large single which they classed as a double i.e not a full double bed etc. Could do with complete refurb. Also had to pay £5 parking which made the room cost far too high for the quality offered. Sash windows would not stay open. All round a poor experience considering the good standard normally enjoyed in a Mercure hotel.

Comfortable stay

Pleasant old town hotel. Close to everything. Shopping for Xmas was excellent and it was close to the cruise terminal as well as the coach terminal.

Good location

The room we had was small, but okay for one night. It was very hot in the room and the window could not be opened. There was a table fan. The bathroom was small, too and the shower was difficult. We complained to the front desk and were told to ask for a better room next time. This must be what they give Orbitx customers as it appeared there were many other better rooms. It is an historic hotel in an interesting and historic city.

Dolphin Safe

The Mercure Southampton Center, AKA the Dolphin, was a home base, a no frills hotel. While there was nothing wrong with the hotel per se it wouldn't be an establishment I'd return to. Located near the docks and the Bargate it was convenient to shops and historical interests. I would suggest not eating in the hotel's restaurant as it is grossly overpriced compared to it's quality and offerings. For breakfast eat 2 doors down. Do not be surprised NOT to find alarm clocks as this is a normal practice in England, however, it's rather frustrating.
