“If you are planning to stay in and explore Southampton, this is the place to start.”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at The Penthouse for 8 nights for a special occasion. All of our guests flew in from the US. First of all, the historic building is fantastic! It is located very near to the docks (including the berth where the Titanic left for its ill-fated journey) and watching all the activities around it was a constant activity during our stay. The Penthouse itself is modern and spacious. The kitchen was fully functional and met all our needs. I'm skipping over reviews of each of the rooms to focus on the jewel of the unit: The roof top terrace. We had great weather during most of our stay and spent most of our time on the terrace. We had a great view of the docks - we watched trainloads of Range Rovers passing by and the Queen Mary 2 dock right outside the building! Other cruise ships, freighters and ferries transited as well. We also had views of downtown and the construction of Ocean Village. We even had a glimpse of the River Itchen. Overall, an excellent location! It was walking distance to restaurants, the historic walls, and an easy bus ride from the main shopping areas, train station, etc. Make sure to enjoy the beautiful lobby, the "Titanic Steps" and the very old (but non functional) electric lift. The owners were very responsive and accommodating. When we met them in person, they were very friendly, helpful, informative on the history of the building and helped us navigate Southampton. If you are planning to stay in and explore Southampton, this is the place to start.

Liked best: the terrace and the historical nature of the building
Liked least: parking was limited in the area of the site, but the owner did provide designated parking. Not a major issue

“Beautiful apartment and views in the middle of Southampton”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We had a lovely week at this apartment over Christmas. The place is well-equipped and had plenty of space for the whole family. The owner and caretaker are both friendly and helpful and I would book the property again in the future.

“Best place to stay in Southampton!”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We loved this apartment. It was 10 out of 10 for location, space, comfort ans historic interest,. We would highly recommend it to families staying in Southampton. We could think of nothing that could have made it a more enjoyable start to our holiday in the UK.

“Great location and accomodation”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Had a great time here, central to everything in southampton, the owner was terrific to deal with and the cleaner/manager was helpful and flexible. The unique property lived up to expectations and both elderly parents and teenagers loved the premises and location. I would definitely recommend and thoroughly enjoyed.
