I had previously stayed at this hotel in 2010 and had read that work had been done to the rooms. Can not say that I noticed this in the room I stayed. Hotel lobby is very nice and prices high but rooms do not fit into this category. The hotel served the purpose of one night stay before departing on a cruise. Close to the various terminals and close to shops and restaurants.
"Knew of hotel before we left the country 16 year"
Knew of hotel before we left the country 16 years ago and we knew it was conveniently situated for our 8 night stay to visit family. To be honest, we expect some "faded glory" but were so pleasantly surprised at the overall standard. The staff were absolutely brilliant - we did not meet one person who did not have a smile on their face, or help in any way they could. The building is obviously old, but the modernization has kept the "feel" of the building excellently. The rooms were very comfortable and individually decorated which was a nice touch - the room that the couple with which we were traveling was totally different in decor - so refreshing from the identical decor of many of the well-known chain hotels. I gave 'pleasing' (4/5) for the room because, fortunately/unfortunately we had very warm weather while we were there, and would have appreciated A/C in the rooms, particularly overnight. Overall, we would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
We spent two nights here whilst visiting Portsmouth area. The restaurant was comfortable, very good breakfast £10 if booked in advance. Good deli menu. Did not have a full evening meal as there was an excellent pub Samuel's Rest a 5 min walk away. Bed and pillows very comfy.

The hotel was really not what we had expected, it was a nice surprise when walking into the reception - as the pictures had not done it justice. We had booked a room for three and the only problem we had was that the room had not been set up appropriately, but after talking to reception this was rectified immediately. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. The only downside was that the room was quite warm, even with all the windows open. But that is hardly too much of a grumble. It was conveniently located with a bus service near by, striaight to the city centre.

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.
