The hotel is by the side of the motorway on the way into Southampton from the west, it up a side road which is not greatly signed. The car park is large and there were security staff walking around it when I arrived at night. Check-in was quite slow as the receptionist was on the phone, when she finished she went into the back and told a colleague that it was her turn to check people in. The girl came out after another couple of minutes and checked me in. I asked about finding somewhere to eat, the person said she wasn't local and wouldn't go out in the dark in the local area anyway. I felt quite concerned about staying there for my safety.
The décor of the room was dated and was quite bland in light blue, the tv didn't have a clock on it. The room was very warm and I had to open the window. The wifi was with swisscom and not very cheap.
The breakfast area was well stocked with croissant, pastries and bread, the cereal was fine but the milk wasn't in a fridge it was just left out.
The staff were more attentive on checkout and said they would inform the duty manager about the staff issue the night before.
