I booked a single room, but because somebody had cancelled, the host offered a double room for the same price. The breakfast was very rich and tasty! The owner is very very nice and hospitable she offered loads of information about Southampton and the surroundings. This was the first time staying at an English b&b, but I definitely enjoyed staying... More

A comfortable guest house, with very friendly and helpful owner and staff. Delicious breakfast, good coffee, fresh fruit and hot meals. The bed very was comfortable. A downside for us was lack of air conditioning. We arrived on a very warm day and as it's on a busy road, we needed to close windows at night. The fan provided some... More

If you have a vision of an English B&B come up this is probably it periods back to an older time when everything was personal . The place is clean and staff disparity accommodating . Okay, the drawback - the beds are extremely hard. If this is what you like you are in luck. However, we had a very hard... More

Proprietor was so helpful and friendly. I messed up the booking but she was able to sort my husband out with a room with no fuss. She also kept a parking space for his large car when he was returning late and in the dark. Would very happily book again. Many thanks.

Stayed one night here, room a bit noisy as on main road, and I like to have the window open at night, but apart from that very nice, would definitely recommend. Tea and coffee, and bottled water in room,. Breakfast amazing, fresh fruit (and lots of it!), all types of cereals, beautifully freshly cooked breakfast, toast etc, can't fault it.

If I designed a B&B landlord, I would use A.J.--as my model. The house is immaculate and the breakfast first class. We arrived earlier than expected and were warmly received with coffee and biscuits. The staff worked at top speed to prepare our room after the previous occupant departed. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this wonderful B&B.

I arrived an hour late due to traffic on the way, and was greeted warmly by the landlady. She showed me my room, which was lovely, clean and cosy. Then asked if I would like a tray of tea. It came with 2 lovely pieces of her homemade cake. The breakfast was a choice of really full English, fish, kedgeree,... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Alcantara. The lady who host my stay, really looked after me. I was greeted at the door by name and brought tea, millionaire shortbreads and biscuits whilst settling into my room. The lady advised me on places to visit in the city; on how to get to the university, and she kindly ordered me... More
