“Accommodation and food at The Spinnaker”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

My son and I stayed here for 2 nights during the Southampton Boat Show. I was not sure what to expect having booked it and then later read the fairly bad reviews (wrong way round I know - but we could not get accommodation anywhere else!). I must say, we had a very pleasant stay: staff were all very pleasant, chalet room at the rear was clean and towels/bedding fresh. Meals (breakfast and evening meal from bar) were very good. No complaints whatsoever.

Room Tip: Go to rear of pub in the chalet rooms (away from the A27 road - very busy).
