I stayed here for one night mid week. As I booked at the last minute, and we are in the christmas season they unfortunately had no availability for dinner, however I do not view that as a negative on this review. From the moment I arrived I felt that I was superbly looked after. Shown from the bar through to reception, talked with pleasantly and in a friendly manner then shown my room. All of this done in a thoroughly professional manner.
This place is far more boutique hotel than B&B, in fact I wouldn't ever consider it a B&B unless you are looking for a few of the hotel touches such as room service.
The room was small but very clean and well appointed. The bathroom had a lovely big shower and great towels. All in all a great example of making the most of a small space. Even though the restaurant was crowded and noisy, great for a convivial evening drink, the room was quiet, the bed comfortable and I slept like a log.
Breakfast in the bar was superb, a great change from most hotels repetitive and anodyne buffets. You choose from about 10 choices and it is cooked fresh for you using the best ingredients, definitley the best start to a day I have had in a long time.
If I come back to Southampton I will stay here again, but I will try and book the restaurant in advance.
