“too expensive for what you get”
Reviewed 22 June 2009

The room was very small...It said ensuite, but it was not really what you'd call ensuite. the shower was next to the bed, and the toilet was in what used to be a cupboard by the entrance door. ultra small room where they managed to fit a double bed. The breakfast was a joke! half a slice of bacon, tinned tomatoes warmed up....god knows where they bought those sausages...i felt I was chewing some kind of artificial meat.
If you pay £27 on lateroom and you are just after a bed to crash in, then fine. you'll have your tea and cereals and juice the following morning. But for £50 it was a bit insulting
I would be horrified to serve a breakfast like this to friends who stay over.

Reviewed 25 April 2009

We were looking for a place near the city centre and booked the day before on laterooms.com. It was £27.50pp for a single en suite not including breakfast. For £27.50 you couldn't really expect much more really! Although the rooms were pretty small we received a friendly welcome and the hotel was clean and secure. The only gripe was that the radiators seemed to be wedged on in both mine and my colleagues rooms. The owner made it perfectly clear when breakfast was BETWEEN 7 & 8 on a weekday but we elected to opt out so can't comment on the standard of the breaky. Also a good hotel if your a football geek as it's right opposite the site of The Dell where Southampton FC used to play! Although i wouldn't fancy staying at the Winston for a long period it's great for a cheap one night stop over within walking distance of the town.

Looked nice outside apart from dead squirell on car park.Rooms partitioned down line of bay windows.Very cramped.Filthy net curtains.Light above bed did not work.TV located on top of wardrobe with no remote control.At 8.05 we were advised our pre-paid breakfast would not materialise as it finished at 8.00.No one had advised us of this and what sort of hotel does this.Our attention was drawn to a tiny notice on the back of the door.Refund totally refused.DO NOT STAY HERE!
