We stayed one night from 3rd July to 4th July. Cargo is a very nice little hotel. Check-in was efficient. We had two rooms, one on first floor and one at the top. Both rooms facing back garden. Silent and comfortable night. Lovely breakfast (best granola!!). Cargo is located in a restaurant area, very nice, and a short walk away... More

Very friendly service, I've enjoyed my 3 nights here. I was in room 6 which is at top over looking the road. Yes, noise from street does come up, but it doesn't bother me. Couple of suggestions: 1. Get black out/roman blinds, not Venetian. 2. Put a wifi signal booster in for upstairs.

This is a great little hotel in a fabulous location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar downstairs is very lively and the street is quite noisy. This did not bother us but something to bear in mind if you are planning on going to bed early. The room and bathroom were nice and clean, would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for one night when we came to Southampton and were warmly greeted for our check-in which was nice and easy as we had booked in advance. We were shown to our room which was on the first floor at the front of the property. Initially we wondered if we would be kept awake by the noise of... More

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.

We can assure you that we have put measures in place and also provided more adequate staff training to ensure this does not repeat. Kind Regards, James More

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
