Very central location which is handy for sightseeing and for the railway station or the port. The shower was very good and the room was clean and comfy. The staff were friendly. I would go back and would happily recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed for one night before a cruise leaving from Southampton. This is an historic hotel where Jane Austin had her 18th birthday party. It retains its historic charm, which also means it is not modern and updated in any way. Our room was adequate in size and the bed was good, but we arrived during a... More

Visited the hotel as part of a package stay at Paulton's Park (Home of Peppa Pig World). The hotel was great, the parking was a little tricky to find but once past that everything was fine. The hotel was clean, well presented and the staff friendly. Our family room was well presented, clean but incredibly hot as the weather was... More

We stayed in a family room as part of the Paultons Park package for 1 night. Reception staff were excellent. Our room was spacious and of a high standard but so hot it was almost unbareable to be in the bathroom. We opened the window but discovered it was directly above the bins which were in constant use & very... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel and though location was good this hotel room was quite uncomfortable. No air conditioning and opening the window was quite noisy. No room to move around the bathtub a danger to climb in and out. If you are over 40 watch out it is an accident waiting to happen. We went out... More

Hotel located in the centre of Southampton. For a traditional hotel I thought that it was maintained to a high standard. The bedrooms in particular were very good, especially the en-suite bathrooms, which all (I saw in 3 of them) appeared to be very modern and probably recently refurbished. The first room I was allocated did not suit me as... More

We stayed for one evening before we took our 14-night Iceland and Fjord Cruise. The hotel was referred by our travel agent and we considered ourselves lucky to take her advice. Not to mention its relationship with Jane Austin, the hotel is conveniently located. We visited the Old Town, the museum, park, and Oxford Street, all within 20 minutes walking.... More
