Rabbit warren of corridors and steps but it became "home" to us in between other destinations. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. We had to prop up the windows as the window cords were broken but we loved our stay. Some beds unfortunately were a bit tired but the staff moved us to more suitable beds(two singles rather than 1 double) with no problem. Overall, oh so convenient for us for what we were doing.
Dear rejoice2903, Thank you very much for your review. We're so pleased to read our hotel felt like home during your time with us. Thank you for your very kind comments regarding our staff, we will share this with them. I'm glad they were able to change your room efficiently for you too. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, Ed C
The service was extremely slow for breakfast due to wedding breakfast in the next room and a vegi sausage took a total of 30 mins way too long the room was confortable and clean though and we did get our free drink even if the bar was empty
Dear fubb212, Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you received your complimentary drink with us for being an Accor Le Club Member. I'm also pleased to read you felt your bedroom was clean and comfortable. With regards to the vegetarian sausage we will see what we can do to speed it up in future however I'm pleased we were able to cater to your dietary needs. Kind Regards, Ed C
I've stayed here before because it is a good central location for the city centre but also the docks. I travel by train so £1 gets me from Southampton central train station to holy rood church which is just 10metres or so from the hotel. Room 11 was compact so glad travelling alone. It's ground floor but note there are always two steps to get to that level and some rooms have another two steps to them. My room just shower so ask if you need a room with a bath when booking. No air conditioning so only control is a fan they left in the wardrobe. That said, it was fine for me in the weather. Had very comfortable 3 nights of sleep not disturbed by road noise or from revellers - including a Friday night. This room is towards the back of the hotel but a walkway runs beside the room so I had been (needlessly) concerned. Had breakfast all 3 days. Pretty standard and not cooked to order so depends what time you go. First day bacon had been out a while so looked less appetising and texture of cardboard though still warm. Selection of pastries is disappointing and I find one large pot of jam with small plastic containers to put some in unsatisfactory. Haven't eaten there otherwise as centre is very close by. You will find marks on walls etc. This is an old hotel. My room had watermarked ceiling. But it is very clean. Check in and out is efficient though can be a queue at peak time. They are used to people leaving luggage for storage so that is not an issue. I'd stay again. It's functional, staff polite on the whole, and well placed. But if you want rolling grounds and plenty of light, it maybe isn't for you.
Second time at the Dolphin Mecure and once again really impressed by the level of customer service there. We stayed in the Azura room. Large ground floor room, with fridge, Coffee machine, kettle, complimentary toiletries, nespresso coffee pods, tea bags, milk, bottled water and 2 soft drinks. Very comfortable bed, and spotlessly clean. Bathroom has bath with shower attachment. Large TV on wall. Convenient for West Quay shopping centre. Weatherspoon pub next door. 5 mins from cruise port.
when we arrived in our room... the painting absolutely need to get refreshed, the bathroom of my parents was really little, many doors of the ground floor are damaged, it did not meet our expectations at all for a 4 stars. However the staff is welcoming and the breakfast is absolutely lovely.
Dear brardv Thank you for taking the time to upload your comments onto Tripadvisor, we value our customer’s feedback and check the website regularly to help monitor and maintain our high standards of service I appreciate that some areas of the hotel are in need of modernisation and improvement and I am pleased to say that this is taking place. I was very pleased to hear about your comments regarding the quality of our breakfast on offer at the hotel. We have invested time and money to ensure that this service is of the highest quality. We would be delighted to welcome you back to the Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel in the near future. Kind Regards Ed Cooper General Manager
Public areas appeared OK and staff friendly enough. However, bedrooms were in desperate need of refurbishment. Have stayed in numerous Accor branded hotels throughout the world including Pullman, Sofitel, Novotel, Ibis and of course Mercure and without a doubt the quality of the bedroom including décor, bathroom and mattress was the worst we have experienced to date.
Dear Simon S We at the Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel very much appreciate all your thoughts. I would like the opportunity to address your concerns regarding the bedrooms as soon as possible and would therefore appreciate it if you could let me know your room number so that I can replace the mattress and have any maintenance issues rectified. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to hearing from you in due course. Kind regards, Ed Cooper General Manager
