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...

Great location, on the edge of town near numerous bars and restaurants, rooms are good value, breakfast is great and cooked to order so allow a bit more tine for this. Bar meals are reasonably priced and very nice, parking over the road is convenient. Overall a nice place to stay.
