Highfield House Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I spent 5 nights here and was very impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the room. The wifi facility was also top notch. On a couple of major bus routes, this slightly out of the centre hotel is really quite a find. The high street has a good selection of shops and eateries and the Sainsburys is a huge store. I would happily stay here again :_

Nice location easy to find, close to main high street, car par at front spaces too small larger car par at rear which is good, rooms are nice, lend you a smart phone if you want, TV is good but as per every hotel too small, no bar at hotel but front deck will sell you drinks etc, Breakfast too expensive but if your company is paying etc etc but for independent traveller too expensive

Stayed 1 night Sunday 12th Nov as cruising on the Monday. Great location, great & very friendly staff. For a one night stop this was excellent. Room was a bit warm but bed was very comfortable. It was only 10 minute drive to the port so great for cruisers

We stayed here for one night and it was ideal. We arrived before check in open but were able to park in the car park and leave our cars there. As we had things booked we went out to do these then checked in once we came back which I believe was around 11pm . The room was exactly what we expected a little dated but everything you need. The bathroom was fine the shower was nice The bed was a bit soft but not uncomfortable. The breakfast in the morning was a nice spread and I must say the sausages were awesome

I didn't expect much as it was a very good deal. Good points were nice friendly staff and very good breakfast, with free wifi and parking a plus. The room was really clean, well done cleaning staff. However the rooms are really very tired, the hotel needs a make over rather urgently. Overall it was ok. It I wasn't totally comfortable as decor was so obviously old

Not very expensive but clean and quiet. The hotel position is good for visiting number of nice restaurants and pubs in that area. Getting to the city centre cost me £12 for taxi. Rooms are reasonably sized with nice bathroom. Breakfast nice with variety of food as buffet style.

This is a commercial property and not a seaside hotel, this is a first time stay and I was very pleased with the choice. Tof good standard he bedroom was average size with a flat screen television, the bathroom and furnishings were all good standard (room 304) sadly there's no lift but it's only 2 floors. Breakfast and staff were all good and the price of the stay was very competitive. Eating out was no problem with plenty of eateries within 200 yds. Only 1 complaint, the double bed mattress had a dip in the middle causing you drift into it during sleep, but would stay again in a different room.

It's clean, it's tidy, the staff are friendly, I slept well, the shower was good (water pressure room 19 absolutely fine) and the breakfast fantastic. Ok the place looks a little tired and care worn, but so do I. For a Friday night stay it was more than adequate. Yes, it could do with a bit of a spruce up and it doesn't have a 56" TV in the bathroom but it's warm, welcoming and comforting. What's not to like on wet weekend eh? I'd rather stay here than brace the flight to Dublin! Budget bliss. Thank you

Close to uni, easy to get to, clean. Only 1 plug sockets in room, a small problem. Bed a bit on the soft side but slept well. Wifi, parking and breakfast all excellent. Lots of places to eat and drink close by.

I have stayed here a number of times as it’s great for being near the New Forest. Stayed with the kids and friends and happily recommended to many in the past. BUT! Not anymore! There’s been a management change. The friendly greeting with smile is no longer there. The bedding was tired with one limp pillow per person. Complimentary shower gel and soap smelled cheap, the towels weren’t the thick ones we’ve had before and they didn’t smell fresh. The bottles of water were also not in the room, I went down to buy a bottle thinking that they no longer provided as complimentary. I mentioned to the night staff that there always used to provide this before and he retorted that that had never been the case! He did let me have one bottle for free after asked how much it was though. As mentioned before in other posts the rooms do need refurbishment so too the bathrooms so I wasn’t surprised by this. In the breakfast room the same non plus reception from the staff. Previously it felt like a family run business where customer relations mattered but that was not apparent. I can say with confidence that having stayed here for years; some years for long weekends and some for a week with the kids there is definitely a change in the quality. Such a shame because at this moment I really can’t see myself going there ever again. The “Inns’” and alike are ok for the budget stay but lack the personal touch. This hotel had both these plus points and wasn’t a chain. Oh well on with the search in time for next years school holidays.
