Stayed for one night before an early morning ferry crossing from Southampton. Really comfortable beds, quiet location with excellent restaurant facilities. Only downside is that wi-fi is via the cloud rather than available on site which necessitated a rather elongated registration process. Easy enough once registered.Staff were all great.
Breakfast is extra but you get a reduced price if you book it the night before.
I had an overnight Sunday stay which meant it was very quiet. It is a comfortable country hotel complete with horses in the paddock with lovely gardens. The whole place has an air of olde worlde slightly faded elegance.
I have to say the experience was one of the best we have had. We had booked 2 rooms one of which was for my daughter and her new husband for the night of their wedding. On arriving, shortly after midnight, the checkin was so welcoming and staff were very accommodating, the honeymooners had a welcome card along with a bottle of fizz fully complimentary waiting for them in their room. The bar staff were just as accommodating. The rooms were clean and looked newly furbished although the bath looked a little tired in places in our room, overall we could not fault the rooms. There was breakfast selection that would suit anyone with staff that were extremely tentative.
"Good location, but hotel tired and sloppy service."
Great location but upon arrival the room was full of flies which was very off putting. There wasn't a problem with changing rooms and a comfortable night was had. We had breakfast the next morning and found the staff overwhelmed with the amount of guests. Our group of four were placed on a table for two which was completely unsatisfactory and we had to ask for two tables to be put together . The crockery we were given was stained which was unnecessary and sloppy. However with all these issues, the staff responded immediately and resolved any problems.
Set on a broad inlet, Southampton is the largest city in southern England and cruise capital of Northern Europe. Some of the world’s largest liners are based here and many more visit regularly. The centre is modern but retains several historic buildings, two excellent art galleries, two theatres, plus good eating, drinking and shopping. Ocean Village leisure complex at the marina features a new museum of aviation.
