Comfortable room and bed. Bathroom slightly cramped. Good dinner, and breakfast . Friendly helpful staff. The hotel is very old, but has been tastefully modernised. It is in a good central location, a short stroll from the Oxford Street restaurant area.

I've stayed in several different hotels in Southampton, but most of the best are along the West Quay towards the sea front which is great if you're just staying over to get a cruise or attending a music event at The Engine Rooms, but not so ideal if you want to be in the centre of town near to shops....

Stayed as it was on offer, room was small, good location though. It is an old building so has to fit around that. Larger rooms may be nicer. But there are plenty of hotels in Southampton. Easy walking distance to the centre.

The food isn't great, room service lasagne was like a re-heated ready meal, that had been over-done in the oven so that all of the sauce on the plate around the lasagne had boiled and then dried out, I paid £6 for fruit salad for dessert and it was just a large bowl of the breakfast fruit salad - mostly...

Business stay, bit tired but staff made up for it, comfortable room but a bit tight, breakfast adequate. There are much better hotels on Southampton and certainly easier to find and park at!! Good value but could be a lot better. Recommended for an upper budget hotel but shop around for better.

The room was damp and cramped. The whole place just seemed really dated. Price was reasonable for what we paid but being a mercure we had certain expectations. Breakfast was a disappointment. Reception staff were understanding and professional.

Whilst I appreciate I arrived a tad early I had to wait over one hour for my room since housekeeping has gone on a break. Receptionist Jessica was most kind and understanding and gave great empathy during this period even offering me a drink. The hotel is ideally located for the theatre and shopping aswell as other museums and cultural... More

I spent one night there over new year and the hotel was very nice. The rooms clean but a little bit old fashioned. The pool was ok and the breakfast good. The rooms have been very clean. Only 5 Minutes away from the titanic Museum.

We chose to book into this hotel for two nights the weekend before Xmas, purely down to location and the option of booking a privilege room. The reception and bar area were nice and what you would expect from a building of that age, but the bar service was so poor it was almost laughable. Both during the day and... More
