We decided to spend a few days in Southampton before catching a ship there. The hotel is small and very homey..perfect! Now, you need to know it is not air conditioned but a fan is provided and a double bed IS a double bed. I knew this when we went. The room was darling and the bath was large and... More

It was very warm weather and so room very warm but a... More

Stayed here twice in one week. First stay was in room six - good size and large bathroom although bed could have been a little more comfortable. Then I stayed in room 9. This was a bit of a climb up several stairs but the room was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. Only gripe would be that... More

We needed a basic room for the night in southampton and just picked something from high up on the trip advisor list. However everything was much better than basic. We arrived very much later than planned, but the hotel was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were nice, the breakfast was good. We've stayed in much more expensive places which offered... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night to attend my sons graduation. The hotel staff we met were very friendly and efficient. The room was very clean and the en suite had a great shower. There was a noise from an extractor fan outside our room (room 6), but it did not disturb me too much. The breakfast... More

Stayed overnight in Southampton when picking up my daughter from her Cruise ship(she had been working on Queen Victoria). Had stayed in Soton several times but find the hotel rates less than attractive - particularly for a single.Have reported on here before on cheaper hotels that were not up to standard. I arrived late evening(around 9pm), dropped my overnight bag... More

We stayed here recently with a party of 17 prior to a weekend cruise from Southampton. We took all the hotel rooms and had dinner in the restaurant. The weekend weather was great so we were able to spend the afternoon in the hotel garden enjoying Jugs of Pimms. Evening dinner was great we ordered on arrival at the hotel.... More

We had a wedding party here June 2014 with all rooms booked. Reception staff, food, bar and all aspects of hotel very good. Best small hotel we have stayed in for years. Nothing was too much trouble to make us happy. Recommend this to everyone.

Spent 3 nights at Blue Keys. Room was spacious, especially with the high walls, and very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful with caretaking our luggage and advice on visiting Southampton & the Isle of Wight.
