“Everything we needed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Me and my partner stayed here just to get some time to ourselves and we are deffinatly going to stay there again. The lady who owned Abbey lodge was so polite and carring to the point that she gave a better room then we were orrigionaly going to be in as they did not have many people there on that particular day. The secound thing was the beds were ever so comphy and finally the breakfast was brilliant. We did not have a single problem when staying here and I deffinatly recommend it to all ages.

Entire place reeks of cat urine and stinks. Dogs are barking downstairs. Outside the neighbours drink smoke and argue and litter. Bedding was greasy and stained - the old sheets worn so bad they have holes. Water in shower trickles out cold. Other 'guests' seemed like this was their prison discharge half-way-house. Rooms so small you literally have to crawl over you luggage to get back out the door. Broken wifi gave me an excuse to cancel remainder of booking but I'm still flabbergasted that I actually paid for two whole nights in such a nauseating, run-down cesspit. Avoid this place at all costs.

Booked in earlier without really looking at the room and by the time I was dropped off there later and pulled the bed covers back ....it was too late. The sheets were absolutely filthy. I didn't know what to do and settled in the end for sleeping on top of the bed in my clothes. Lesson learned - always check the sheets!!!

I had to go to Southampton for work and was very glad when I found this little guest house.
OK the rooms are small but they are clean and the breakfast, which is included in the price was perfect and freshly cooked.

Located in the Polygon area of Southampton it close to all the shops and cruise line ports.

I can not fault it for the price I paid.

A note to other travelers, I walked pass other guest houses which i had seen on the internet....... who ever said that a camera does not lie!

Room Tip: There a few en suite rooms

First impression opening the front door was 'a bit tired' then the smell hit you - dogs! They were nowhere to be seen but the whole house stank of them. We have dogs in our house but I'd get rid of them if the house smelt like that. Room was Ok with a double & a single bed so to get to the tiny window to let in some air was difficult. Double bed pushed up against the wall so not easy to get in and out of. Shower hot but old & seen better days - like the rest of the room.
Breakfast - plenty but swimming in tin tomato juice and baked bean juice.
Great position for theatre and the plus was parking was available off road. Landlady friendly & helpful
Would we stay there again - No
