Very dissappointed

Posted 04-Sep-2014
I have stayed at this hotel once or twice a year for the last six years but in future I will be looking for somewhere else. The refurbishment has left the bar feeling very cut off and the seating uncomfortable I always felt the pianist was one of the best assets. On arrival in our room there was no teabags and one packet of biscuits in a twin bedded room is hardly generous there was also no shower caps. No table cloths and paper napkins felt very cost cutting and not 4 star standard

Recently refurbished and looks great. Right near the cruise ships and west quay mall and within walking distance of nice restaurants and bars for an entertaining night out. Recommended !!

Excellent hotel!

Posted 29-Jul-2014
We stayed for a night before a cruise and the hotel is ideally situated for all the major cruise lines. It's just a short walk to the large shopping centre as well. Hotel was spotless and very friendly staff. Could not fault.

Perfect situation

Posted 27-Jul-2014
Pros: The helpfulness of the staff and the comfort of the room.
Cons: I can't think of anything.
Location: Perfect for a pre-cruise stay and it is close to the centre of Southampton.
We stayed at this hotel prior to sailing on a cruise . It is ideally situated for the cruise terminal, just 5 minutes to the gate. When we arrived, the concierge looked after those cases that we didn't need and even parked the car for us. Leisurely breakfast next morning and then off on holiday.

Nice hotel close to the cruise ship terminals

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: Its location for the cruise ship terminal is the main reason. A very nice hotel (maybe a little pricey)
Cons: A better rate would be the best thing
Location: There is a lot of history in Southampton within walking distance of the hotel. You can see one of the cruise ship terminals from the hotel
Very cooperative... We arrived early due to our flight times and they looked after our luggage until the room was ready. Everyone was very helpful and courteous.

Close to the docks and centre of town

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: Good location, good size rooms, attentive and capable staff.
Cons: The shower - usual lack of power found in many British hotels. Breakfast - usual over-priced buffet - but plenty of places nearby to eat. Go explore!
Location: Close to everything - the docks, centre of town, and West Quay shopping mall.
Stayed for two nights on a short visit to Southampton. Very comfortable accommodation, recently renovated to a reasonable standard.

Nice hotel, good location

Posted 15-Jul-2014
Loved the design of the building. Balcony sea view rooms are great. Bit pricey for what it is but ok if you want to treat yourself. Staff friendly. Nice breakfast. Good location.

Stayed for a wedding

Nice hotel with a very comfortable bed. Service in the bar was a little slow and the person behind the bar wasn't all that helpful but other than that a lovely stay for one night.
