This is a charming and well-located house, with a very welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast is excellent and the staff is warm and accomodating. The location is also excellent -- right in the heart of charming Southampton. The only downside -- at least in the oldest part of the house, where we stayed --- is the lack of insulation; thus a noise level that made sleeping, especially before midnight and after 6am, quite difficult for anyone but the most sound sleeper. Despite silicone earplugs, we could even hear the snoring of the gentleman in the room above us for most of one night as well. We would definitely stay there again, but be very judicious about room location -- perhaps the cottages are the best bet.
