I spent a month visiting the Southampton University. It was my first time in UK. I appreciated very much the kindness and friendly atmosphere that I felt throughout my entire stay from the moment when I was arranging the room for my stay. Nicole helped me whenever I needed to get around..tips for trips or shops:). Breakfasts were very good... More

I spent two lovely evenings with Nicola. Car parking was easy, the room was beautifully appointed, the house is delightful.. breakfast was delicious, a classic well cooked full English. I stay in the Southampton area a couple of times a year and I look forward to enjoying Nicola's hospitality again.

At walking distance from city centre (shopping centre, train station...) You find very friendly staff, clean rooms (daily cleaning of rooms and bathroom) and good breakfasts (full English included) It was not expensive at all and it really gives value for money. You won't regret.

I was extremely lucky to have stayed at this inexpensive guest house for five months this year. I found a pub called the Griffin Inn one sunday evening nearby because I needed inexpensive accommodation. Very bad choice so much so I couldn't spend the night there. I rang around guest houses after ten at night and was fortunate to have... More

Nicola, thanks a million for looking after me so well during my 3 weekends in your lovely guesthouse. Your warm welcome and friendly, attentive manner made me feel really at home, especially when arriving on late flights from Dublin. Warm cosy rooms, tasty breakfasts and a lovely kind hostess, all made for a very pleasant stay. Thanks again! Amanda
