In desperate need of refurbishment

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Trip06133103819 Couples - TripAdvisor review

We stayed at the hotel to visit Southampton boat show. Location is excellent; close to the show and right amongst pubs, restaurants and shops. It was difficult to find car park but use sat nav and put it ‘back of the walls’ and it’s gets to to a lovely large carpark at back of hotel. Charge is £5 per day. Check in was swift and problem free. Staff are very nice. We had breakfast 1 day and it was absolutely lovely. Lots of choice hot and cold.. again couldn’t fault it. The room is large with all the amenities you need, but unfortunately it needs a desperate upgrade and redecoration. The room is clean and bed is so comfortable.. we had 2 great night sleep in room 16 and if they upgrade we would return. Added some pics just to show room as we like to give a fair and honest review.

Beautiful atmosphere, amazing coffee, accommodating staff

Despite our group organiser having had made a mistake with the booking, the owner quickly and very happily accommodated for us and ensured we still had a place to drinks and eat within the establishment, absolutely pleased with the quick turn around on the situation and proactive response.

Seabird464 Business - TripAdvisor review

Unfortunately it was the only hotel available at the time of booking that was central. It's the worst hotel I have ever booked into for five nights. Don't expect your rooms to be cleaned, I had to go down to reception to ask why my room wasn't cleaned and was informed of the housekeepers been too busy. So once you are booked in, you become irrelevant! The receptionist had to get clean towels and cups for me, which really should not be her job. I'm sure I'm not the only person to have these issues. Doors bang, floors creaking constantly, I actually thought someone was in my room during the night it was so loud. Dirty walls, ripped beds and curtains off the much for management. Oh well you decide for yourself.

Extremely tired state of affairs…

We had a cruise and stay package . On arrival we requested secure luggage storage and we were given a bigger room so that we could keep our luggage with us. The car park was secure so we felt it was safe to leave the car.The hotel was very central to the cruise port and we were given a taxi to and from the port Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to leave their car whilst cruising
