Positives: good location Negatives: tiny room, smelled of smoke even though non smoking, drain from shower smelled disgusting, bedding didn't look that clean, view of McDonalds drive thru (24hr) with associated noise and smells. Never given a 1* rating before and im not a serial complainer. I just felt that the £100 i paid for the night was very steep...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 March 2017

Stayed in March 2017. Hotel location is excellent as very close to a shopping place and quite a few restaurants. Staff were always friendly and the hotel was very clean. As was staying for my boyfriends birthday I asked if the room could have some balloons - not only did the hotel staff put in balloons but they also added...

This is really a small budget hotel closed to cruise terminal at Southampton. If your stay is one or two nights only and the main purpose is to transit to cruise ship, this is a pretty good option with the price. The room is really tiny and cleanliness is not satisfactory. Buffet breakfast has limited selections but it's £5 only,...

There is good parking at the hotel and the hotel is within easy walk of the town centre and also located close to the main line railway station. In spite of it's central location on the...

Stayed here one night before cruise. Only £6 taxi ride to Cunard terminal. Hotel very basic but clean, the bed was quite comfy. asked for extra pillows which was no problem, We managed to get a room for £39. Eveything you need for one night,. Breakfast was £5.50 for a good continental breakfast. Would stay again.

This hotel is extremely basic, the rooms are small. For your money you get a hard bed small TV on the wall, 2 small bath towels, small bar of soap and two plastic cups. Both my husband and I spent most of the night scratching. If you wanted tea or coffee it was in the reception area. We pre paid...

Reception good, room basic, clean and was fine for our 1 night stay, never took breakfast but tea was free, position great for the main shopping area of Southampton and if you are taking a cruising holiday. Would stay there again but no more than 2 nights.

It was a short walk with luggage, the only problem was waiting until 2pm check in. Once finally out of the crowd and in the room it was definitely...

First (to be clear)- be ready to have bedroom in bathroom. Quite small rooms that offer bedroom and bathroom on the same space. Quite quiet, bed comfortable enough to sleep well and wake up rested. Elevator is quite loud, so in near rooms, while falling asleep you can expect to hear "door closing" In the other side of parking there...
