Getting there; The directions given by the hotel website are easy to follow and the hotel easily seen from road .
Hotel; The hotel is good value, the check in was easy the reception staff pleasant. The room was basic but clean and adequate for a one or two night stopover. The continental breakfast at £ 2.90p was average and the breakfast area got crowded,. If I stayed again I would probably opt for the 24 hr Mac Donalds that is next to the hotel.
Area; located approx 5 min walk from Southampton City Centre and a large shopping mall with the usual shops and cafes. The main street didnt have as many good bars and cafes as I thought it would, the West end of the street was a bit rough, noticable by the Police presence outside Yates Bar. The East end was better with some Cafes/Restaurants in the Oxford Street areaMore
