Stayed here for one night as we were in Southampton for a party. Didn't fancy the usual chain hotels so went for something a bit more boutique like. Not disappointed with the choice, lovely small shabby chic styled place with a nice bar and restaurant. Staff were great, so friendly and helpful. We were offered a free drink because the...

Nice little hotel in the heart of Southampton. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast, great bar with a lot to offer. Rooms were clean, but quite small. Bathrooms are newly renovated and really good looking. Overall a nice stay for a short trip in lovely Southampton.

This small hotel was great for a one night stay being very central. We stayed in the loft room and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom could be improved as it had sloping shelves in the shower, so there was nowhere to put anything. Staff were friendly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was very good. We...

Strange hotel ... Bar area was really nice and John and Josh really know how to look after their customers. Food was disappointing, especially at those prices. Rooms were more shabby than shabby chic! Look at the skirting boards on the stairs to the toilets, which were definitely more backstreet pub than boutique hotel. Bathroom was nice, but the room...

I went with colleagues after work for a drink midweek, hardly anyone in at all however cheery bar tending staff were on hand. A decent selection of lagers but only room for one real ale, a rugby named one, forget which it was, have to say one was enough. Lots of spirits available and wines. Decor is pretty minimal made...

A group of us went for evening meal last week and were pleasantly surprised by the standard f service, the staff and the food. We were very well looked after and the Chef even went out of their way to make a special cheese board which was not on the menu for one of our group as he didn't want...

Nothing was too much trouble for the manager and his staff in this lovely small hotel. The food served in the bar is superb. The rooms are cosy and clean. The hotel is situated in a lively street so is ideal if you like a bit of nightlife. This was our second stay and we will definitely go back

Stayed recently and found that my schedule had changed significantly. The Cargo staff got a room ready for me very quickly. Really good service. Very Good breakfast (veggie) and good room.
