We stayed in two double rooms next door to each other on a Friday night prior to our cruise the next day. Our first big mistake was that we had heavy luggage and there is NO lift in the building! For that reason I would not recommend this place if you have lots of luggage. However, we didn't arrive until about 9pm and we were thankfully able to park in the car park which was free and this is a bonus for Southampton.
The rooms were quite small, but well appointed and clean. The bathroom was small and to open the window(it was a warm night) you had to stand on the toilet seat! The mira shower worked well although it took a while to get hot water from the basin, the free toiletries of shower gel and moisturising shampoo were nice and seemed of good quality. However, there just seemed to be noises all night especially with creaking floors from above and we really did not get much sleep. When we were in our bathroom we could hear our daughters in their room next door!
Next morning we had a really good breakfast, plenty of choice buffet of hot and cold, cereals, croissants etc and it made a change to have a place that makes the toast for you. It did seem well organised , clean and with plenty of seating.
We paid £64 per room so would consider this reasonable value . However, this place needs to upgrade some things and certainly make their reception area look a bit more inviting. I really don't expect to stay here again and the main reasons for this is the lack of lifts and poor sleep quality.
