We have stayed in Southampton many times over the last 20 years, as we visit the Southampton Boat Show every year. We have tried quite a few different B & B's in this time but several years ago we found Ellenborough House. We have stayed here every year since and won't be staying anywhere else. As we leave we book... More

I have been staying at Ellenborough House for over 2 years now. Working as locum doctor I have been trying most of the B&Bs in the area and I have to say this one is the best so far. It has a homey touch and Nicola makes your stay special every time. Always clean and very comfortable, highly recommended!

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.
