I found this hotel after reading a review by hotel guru Fiona Duncan of the Sunday Telegraph. She had stayed here and also at the De Vere harbour in Southampton which got a scathing review. So my choice of an hotel in Southampton was made easy by reading that.All the previous GOOD reviews are more or less correct .The complaining guests who have petty matters to complain about like hitting heads on shelves, uncomfortable beds, sour milk in fridge, no water in fridge, keys don't work etc should NOT stay here-they would be more comfortable at Jury's or the de Vere! (what horrible places). This place is down to earth personal and a beautifully appointed small hotel in a happening area. Rooms are immaculate- no lies on their web site and the price reflects the high standard of the room. The only critiscism I have is that I didn't see any Do Not Disturb signs for the room door and also on the weekends breakfast isn't served until 9 am ( we had to leave on Saturday morning at 8.30 am without the pleasure of a sumptuous breakfast we had had the day before and which we were looking forward to.) We had dinner in the large restaurant downstairs and the food was tasty and the service excellent. In fact all the staff we dealt with were friendly, polite, courteous and helpful. We stayed here in January so am not too sure about the noise during the summer months when life moves out on to the streets. And with no air conditioning in the summer it may be hot, sticky and noisy when the windows are open. But winter-no trouble-rooms almost too warm and the window was difficult to keep open for fresh air.
I will definitely stay there again if I am in Southampton
