We just stayed at this hotel for two nights. We payed very little for the room with breakfast included so we weren't sure what to expect. On first impressions we were happy that the hotel was so close to the centre of the town and that it has private parking (charged at £5 per 24hrs), so you can literally park up, check in and go off to wander about. The building is very old and this definitely adds to the character. All the staff were polite and helpful from the word go. The room we stayed in (109) was only a little one but there was plenty of room for my wife and I to stay comfortably for a few nights. In the mornings the breakfast was fantastic with a great range of food set out for you buffet style and you could also request extras like porridge etc from a menu. Overall we enjoyed our stay and I think a couple of the negative reviews I've read on here are people being very picky... So take them with a pinch of salt. Our only criticism was that the window frames in our room could do with a bit of paint as they were flaking but so what...Old buildings need a lot of maintenance. When we are down in Southampton again I'm sure we will be making another reservation there :-) James & Emma
