Very good in some areas but could be excellent. It needs some updating eg damaged and unclean furniture especially in the lounge area. The telephone in the room was filthy whilst the rest of the room clean, though the bathroom also needed attention and a new shower curtain!
This was a good clean hotel. We only stayed overnight but beds were comfortable and everything worked. Check in and out was straightforward. Price was very reasonable. Only thing to be aware of is that the hotel is on the southbound M3 so if travelling north you have to go to junction 7 and come ...
The best thing about the Fountain court is the food. The Chef is amazing and she comes directly to your table to explain specials etc. The owner also very accomodating. Enjoyable overall experience. We were reluctant to drive to Southampton due to my nervousness driving in England. They offered to ...
All went according to plan, the owner was very hospitable and the facilities were good. Only comment is the mattress was very thin and springs could be felt.
I stayed here with my husband late October during a trip to the New Forest. On arriving at the hotel, we received the warmest welcome I can remember. Firstly, a car parking space (with our name on it) was reserved for us at the front of the hotel. Then we were met at reception by the lovely Christina ...
Good value for money BB. Rooms in a converted stable block at the rear of the building so no noise issues. Good food and selection of drinks ,very friendly staff. We we book it again.
We booked this accommodation as it appeared to offer exactly what we were after. A lot of hotels on booking websites are now so often "room only" with extra costs for breakfast Tec.

Wherever you stay, whether it's the heart of vibrant Southampton or the picturesque countryside of the South Downs National Park or the New Forest National Park, you'll normally benefit from WiFi access.

See the beautiful Medieval Merchant's House, a refurbished timber-framed house that dates back more than 700 years and is a Grade I-Listed landmark. Southampton is also home to the Guildhall, a major live entertainment venue organising numerous high-profile concerts throughout the year in a building that was once a town hall. Learn more about the city's maritime heritage by visiting the SeaCity Museum, see the historic Town Walls, then visit the Solent Sky plane and aviation exhibition.
Southampton is also home to the acclaimed University of Southampton, which celebrated its 60th anniversary as a fully-fledged university in 2012 and is one of Britain's leading research institutions.

See the remarkable 170-metre-tall Spinnaker Tower, then visit the Mary Rose Museum where you can see a preserved shipwreck that sank near Portsmouth during Tudor times and was miraculously recovered and preserved for posterity a few years ago.
For a deep insight into local maritime history, visit HMNB Portsmouth, an enormous harbour that is still used by the British Royal Navy and includes one of the world's first dry docks. Here, you can observe numerous historic ships, one of the most notable of which is HMS Victory, used by Lord Nelson during the Napoleonic Wars.
The Mary Rose Museum is dedicated to the Mary Rose ship, which was built in the 16th century but sunk in the summer of 1545. This incredible exhibition venue would never have existed were it not for the sterling efforts of the Mary Rose Trust to retrieve and restore the Mary Rose ship from deep beneath The Solent. The trust managed to save it in 1982 and towered into to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where it was carefully stored and conserved before becoming the centrepiece of the new museum.
If you want some extra time to explore Hampshire's attractions without having to cart heavy suitcases around with you, then choose a two star hotel with left luggage facilities. Many establishments are also happy to arrange early check-ins or late check-outs to ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible.
Explore the scenic New Forest National Park and observe its families of donkeys, ponies and deer. You could also visit the historic city of Winchester, which has a rather fine medieval cathedral and served as the capital of England during Saxon times.
