A short walk will take you to Hythe Pier where you can catch the frequent ferry across to Southampton for £5.60 return. You also get a ride on an historic pier train thrown in. The small town of Hythe is is close by.... More

Breakfast was continental with a supplement for a full... More

We live locally and often visit- it's a lovely place set on the Marina so has a great outlook. The service is always excellent - thank you to Salt who always looks after us! The food is freshly cooked, always tasty and offers good value. The restaurant is a favourite for an evening meal at weekends, but offers a very... More

We booked The Boathouse as a venue to cater for over 60 people following my father's funeral. The staff were fabulous and so helpful. The food was superb and the buffet was continually 'topped up'. It was a beautiful setting and created a really lovely atmosphere. Thank you so much.

We spent two nights here. It was wonderful. The family room was huge with fabulous views. Sitting on the deck overlooking the marina is a little bit of heaven on earth. The staff are so helpful. The only improvements I would suggest are hair driers attached to the wall or without the wall attachment because they were awkward to use... More

We stayed Saturday 26th July for one night just for a weekend away. In the most perfect setting!! We had one of the smaller rooms which was big enough for us overlooking the square & fountain. Staff really helpful. The only negative was our room was so hot & there were no fans. Apart from that we had a wonderful... More
