Breakfast was very tasty and had a really good choice. I didn't try the evening food so cant comment on that. Room and en-suite...

We had a wonderful stay at The Blue Keys Hotel. I booked it online and during the booking they were very quick at responding to my questions. At the hotel the staff, especially Colin, was very helpful. Everyone was extremely friendly. I would recommend The Blue Keys hotel.

For what u pay, this is a hotel worth staying in. Situated about 20-25 mins walk away from the town, and about < 10mins drive from Southampton central. Bed was comfy, clean sheets and toilet. A comfortable night's stay

Stopped here before a cruise, a great hotel. Ticked all the boxes. Room was nice and clean if a little small (room 10). Staff were very friendly and the food was good. What more canyon you ask for. Will we stay there again, yes.

We stayed here the night before a cruise. The rooms are basic, but met our needs. It is a good value for the money. Met UK friends for dinner. The food was very good. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great value for money. Stayed here for the Southampton Boat Show (20 minute walk) when most other hotels had tripled the rates. Very friendly pleasant staff, room clean and comfortable, great bath loads of hot water, bliss. The sheets on the bed smelled like they had been dried in the sunshine, would highly recommend. Food was of good quality, nicely...

We stayed for 2 nights and found this an excellent base for our stay in Southampton. The decor and facilities are comfortable and the staff were very friendly.
