Rochester, United Kingdom
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Loved the location, really friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere in the bar/eating area. Was great to have a choice of cocktails too! The breakfast, also included in the price which was an added bonus, was scrumptious. Maybe the rooms could be improved slightly but overall a very satisfactory overnight stay and we would definitely come back.

My friends and I were looking for somewhere to stay that was reasonably priced and in a central location. This hotel fitted both these criteria and more. We enjoyed an afternoon watching the rugby and later partook in a few of the bar's cocktails. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and,...

The place is very shabby chic, but in desperate need of some TLC. After a long drive six flights of stairs was not what I wanted. The food menu was again not what I wanted, however the staff where truly amazing, nothing was too much trouble. My room was changed to a lower level, and then again an upgrade which...

Cargo hosted my birthday lunch and looked after us very well. I booked the table for 19 people well in advance and also pre booked the roast choices. Everything was piping hot and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely go back.

Just returned from 2 nights at the Cargo in Southampton. What can I say, such a wonderful place to stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable with everything you needed. The breakfast was the best, you could choose from a large range of items and it was cooked to perfection. Great location about 10 minute stroll...

I felt I had to write this review after having the most amazing experience in Cargo last night. We arrived and were served by the manager(sorry didnt take your name). He was absolutely fab. Great conversation brought another bottle to the table just because he noticed we had finished. We even cancelled our meal at Prezzo to stay and chill...

Ive stayed here twice now. Rooms are typically boutique and for the price you can get better in Southampton. Staff can't do enough for you, friendly attentive and professional. Special thanks to the italian bar tender.

Stayed overnight for family birthday celebration. Ideal location for resteraunts in Oxford Street. Very prompt and pleasant staff. We had room 10 which was high up and at the back so it was very quiet and well presented. The highlight was the shower which was excellent. Breakfast was good and part of the price which made it a very reasonable...
