It´s a nice place with a good food and very friendly staff, Rooms are good, clean and comfortable, if I go again to Southampton I will try to repeat. The place has a good night ambience and luckily is not noisy in the rooms.

The location is excellent. Corey a staff member really helpful and fun! However - after 20 hours travelling from Australia, room door didnt lock. Shower had no cold water, bed was never made, no tea, coffee, milk etc replenished. Paid top dollar but very disappointed. We thought Basil Fawlty would walk in any minute.

I stayed here with a few friends on a Saturday night. Very welcoming staff, high quality drinks, and food cooked to a great standard. The bar has a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere during the daytime, with a lively and cool vibe at night. The rooms were well equipped with a large walk in shower and comfy bed. It is located...

Me and friends heard about Cargo through a recommendation from a close friend of ours. Having trusted out friend we didn't research Cargo and had no expectations. Arrival: Upon arrival we felt right at home, the bar is trendy, quirky and cool and in a great location. We were greeted with a friendly smile from Paige who was working there... More

The rooms may be small but they pack a punch. A comfy bed, lovely shower in an area thats filled with places to eat and drink. I loved the breakfast in the mornings(omg the french toast was to die for could have eaten 3 more plates). The staff were very friendly and were on top of everything at all times.... More

Stayed for 1 night during a girly shipping/night out weekend. It's in a great location for restaurants (highly recommend Max's for food and cocktails), bars and clubs - which are all within very a short stroll. We had 4 rooms, all very nice. Comfy beds. The loft room was spacious - but being a loft room you need to be... More

Firstly, Southampton (in my view) isn't the prettiest of cities by any standard, surprising given its importance for cruises. There does appear to be some regeneration going on, but its a pretty souless place at the moment. On a positive note, CARGO is located on one of the nicer streets and is right next door to a great selection of... More

Where to begin, advertised as a restaurant/bar downstairs, more like a club. Loud thumping music until at least 12:00PM, constant rattle from bedroom window (had to use a lighter to wedge into the gap), Some sort of air conditioning unit outside our bedroom window (room number 5), constant humming very irritating, shower door leaks - making the whole bathroom floor...
