Hotel located in the centre of Southampton. For a traditional hotel I thought that it was maintained to a high standard. The bedrooms in particular were very good, especially the en-suite bathrooms, which all (I saw in 3 of them) appeared to be very modern and probably recently refurbished. The first room I was allocated did not suit me as it was ground floor, with no opening window. During my stay it was 27%C outside (I always sleep with a window open anyway). No air conditioning "as a listed building", but fans provided. The reception staff were very obliging (all of the staff I saw were friendly and helpful) in finding me a fourth floor room with opening window. The first room I had been allocated was very quiet. The second room was overlooking the High Street and I was advised there might be some noise, but actually it was very quite from, say, midnight to 07.00 a.m. I was very comfortable in there. The lift only goes up to the third floor - not a problem for me. Virtually next door is a Wetherspoon's: traditional English breakfast £3.29, unlimited filtered coffee £1.15. The 'Tavern House' (bottom of High Street, turn left along Town Quay) was an interesting 'quirky' pub; with occasional live music. Oxford Street was quite I lively area at night.
