We were welcomed by very friendly and helpful staff. We asked where to park they suggested to park in the car park over the road, the charge was £3 as we parked after 6pm. The room was modern and tastefully decorated with a tv, wonderfully soft towels, tea, coffee and water. We only had one saucer and one teaspoon in... More

We disembarked from our cruise around 10:00 A.M. knowing we could not check in but wanting to leave our bags while exploring Southampton. The staff was eager to accommodate us. We enjoyed a stroll around town and returned around 2:00, the room was still not available but we enjoyed a snack and used the wifi while we waited. as soon... More

Having read some negative comments on Cargo, I very nearly booked an alternative which would have been double the cost. I am so pleased I chose Cargo! Lovely staff, great boutique style room, tea coffee making (with plenty of milk-so many places never provide enough). T,V, free wifi, good shower. The breakfast was good, we had the full English (1... More

Booked as an overnight stop between a day at Goodwood Revived and visiting grandparents in Bournemouth. We didn't fancy a travel lodge nor Air BnB. Found this cool place that was great fun - our room was clean and comfortable with plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits, water etc. And a great walk in shower and white fluffy towels. Set in... More

Rooms above a pub in the centre of southampton. The 2 things I look for in a hotel are working wifi and a breakfast in the morning - I got neither here - wifi didn't work and the chef didn't turn up for breakfast so we went without.

Helpful receptionist. We had booked a superior twin but it was hard to discern what made it superior. When asked, the staff could not tell me either. Room was rather tired looking, chipped paint on the wall, paper stuck to the desk, dirty mirror in bedroom and stains on carpet. The shower plug area was rusty and the tiles also... More

We recently stayed here for one night in what we were told was a superior room. Although the room had everything we needed for the one night - kettle, hairdryer and tv - the whole place need a whole lot of TLC. The room just looked 'beaten up' and the widow was blacked out - (air conditioning consisted of a... More

We spontaneously diverted to Southampton to look at boats on our way back to London then decided if we found a place to stay we would overnight. We walked into a nice looking pub to ask where there was accommodation and were delighted when John (the Manager) said 'well right here!' With his infectious smile, attention to detail and willingness... More

The curtains fell down, the bathroom door handle came off in my hand and when I pulled back the duvet I could see something through the sheets. After pulling back the sheets it was clear that the stain was blood! There was no mattress protector on the bed. I asked if we could change rooms but there were none available... More
