We have just spent a night at 'The Cargo' in Oxford Street, Southampton. We knew what to expect as it is clearly (by the website) above a very busy trendy bar, which suited us as we both love good food and a drink at weekends. The room was comfortable, clean and of boutique style. The staff were very helpful and courteous and the food was excellent. Breakfast is included (but only Continental) any other breakfast is extra at a discounted rate!

If youre looking for a weekend away in a busy trendy part of the city, this is the place to book.

Room Tip: If you want an early night, then the second floor is the rooms to book as the bar is very busy. If you want a late night (after 1am) then any room will would be suitable.

I've stayed at Cargo a number of times, and my stay this time was up to the usual standard. The location of the hotel is perfect for bars and restaurants, the price is reasonable, the rooms are boutiquey and really very nice. As usual, the staff were friendly and helpful. No doubt I'll be back ...

On arrival at 6.30 we were shown up to our room to find the bed not made, we had to stand around while it was then made up. The room was pleasant clean and comfortable.
Breakfast the next day was an experience, we had to ask for a pot of tea three times before it turned up other tables had to ask where their orders were a number of times the waitresses cid not write the orders down so as soon as someone else spoke to them they forgot what they were doing.
Rooms at the front of the hotel get quite a bit of noise at night as Oxford Street is very busy and is packed with bars and restaurants. which would be a problem if you like an early night or do not want go out.
On checking out food and drink had been added to our account that we had not had. the barman apologised and took it off but did not seem surprised if you had eaten and drunk there it could go un noticed.
With a bit of staff training this could be a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: If you are not a night owl ask for a room at the back.

Having stayed in hotels all over the world and learned never to hold one's breath, The Cargo was an extraordinary find. A last minute booking for the International One-dayer (England/India at The Rose Bowl) was always going to be a challenge but having waded through various websites I booked The Cargo. Attending the cricket first, and having subjected myself to the delights of the Hospitality marquis, rain delayed the start of the game which led to a very late exit from the ground. Eventually turning up at The Cargo after midnight (22.00hrs check in!), I was met by staff clearing out the bar area who were polite and welcoming. I was dreading the room having seen that the ground floor was nothing more than a bar - but when I opened the door I was very met with something I didn;t really expect. Everything was clean, modern and well-maintained, although the room was on the bijou side it mattered little as the arrangement of the accoutrements was well thought through. The bed was comfortable, the sheets crisp and pleasant on the nostrils, there was little noise from the outside (Oxford St, has a few bars and restaurants) and traffic was barely in evidence until about 07.00hrs. I didn't try the breakfast as I was in a hurry to move on the next morning.

In summary, if you needed to be close to the city centre or the docks and were looking for somewhere reasonably priced, clean and friendly - I would heartily recommend The Cargo.

stayed here for one night for business / pleasure, check in was quick and easy. room and bed very comfortable, nice flat screen tv. Stewart was a very good host. The location of this hotel is first class as it's right in the heart of all the clubs / bar area.
i would not hesitate to return.
