“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

I Stayed one night,i must say really surprised how friendly,helpful the staff are.Large car park at the rear of the guest house,location only 3min walk to the train station,only 10 min drive to Southampton, where you have great shopping,cruise ships terminals. I had a single room,the size was fine,was a shared shower room. Breakfast was very good.The cost was £35.. Would stay again.

Originally booked for 2 nights but could only stand 1 night, having read the reviews and web site felt happy we had made the right booking. This guest house although very clean and offering a superb breakfast is NOT for families or tourists. We were the only tourists there, the rest of the guests were contractors and this guest house is set up for contractors/workmen. When we finally managed to get some sleep from the noise of the the busy road in front of the guest house and the dual carriageway right behind, we were woke by workmen returning at 1am from their workplace and then the ritual of them showering and going back and fourth up and down the corridor to the kitchen to make drinks/food etc. with doors banging and talking. The noise eventually settled down again only to be woken at 5am to go through exactly the same ritual. It was pleasing to see all these merry men to and from their work but in hindsight we chose the wrong B&B for the kind of stay we wanted and I do feel neither the reviews or website gave us any inclination as to what to experienced. Didn't complain to the managers, did not see the point, what could they have done, out of pocket having paid for 2 nights and having to spend all day Saturday looking for alternative B&B for that night (which we did and a good nights sleep was had by all).

Found previous (?) occupiers mail in guest book. Arrived late at night & appeared to be alot more cars in car park than rooms, we managed to get the last space. The rooms were equipped with plenty of soaps & shower gels & towels & bed linen were clean. When we arrived for breakfast at 7.45, we were scowled at by the chef, breakfast we were told is 7.00-8.15, though the guide said 7.30-8.30. Breakfast is ok to be fair, but the offer of more toast & tea would have been nice. I would not pick this establishment to stay if I was taking my girlfriend away for a romantic weekend, shame given its locality to the New Forest.

I spent three beautifull days in Southampton ( Boat fair).Every day I went by train (the trip takes 6 min. ) from Totton to Southampton. Train station in Totton is a 5 minute walk from Hotel.
Brimar Guest House is best B&B in UK. Rooms are small but very comfortable and clean, and the beds are perfect for sleeping.English breakfast, good quality and rich. This Hotel has a suprise. On the first floor is a small kitchen, so that guest can prepare their own food. The kitchen has everithing you need for cooking, and even some food.But as far as food, you do not need to worry because in the vicibity of the hotel is several restaurants and shops.Internet WI-FI is super.
Next year Southampton Boat show I will be back.

The guest house was easy to find and had plenty of parking. Staff gave a friendly welcome and were very helpful recommending places to eat etc. The room was small but had everything we needed for the weekend - and most importantly was clean. The room was not en suite but all the communal bathrooms (there are a few) were kept very clean. There is also a well equiped communal kitchen where you can make drinks and keep food in the fridge. Breakfast was great. You can see right into the kitchen and it too was spotlessly clean.

Found on line last minute to come to Southampton to see the three Queens arrive for the Jubille, warm welcome lovely clean room nice and quiet and a fab breakfast in the morning. Great value for money and we were shocked it is only 2 star, should be 3! :-) would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend whilst my ship was in port in Marchwood. All we wanted was somewhere to sleep whilst we had the opportunity to spend time together before the ship sailed again.

We stayed in one of the more expensive en suite rooms, however this was only £99 for two nights including a fantastic breakfast, and free wi-fi. The room was ideally sized and the bed, although two singles pushed together was more than adequate for our needs and the linen was clean. Shower room was small but functional and again, most importantly, was clean. I had a look at the communal facilities for the rooms that did not have en suite, and these two were of a high standard of hygeine.

This is not going to win any awards for having great views, bur for convenience and value it is hard to beat, and its close enough to all the local attractions; around £10 for a txi to Southampton city centre; but the train station is only a five minute walk away so that leaves options, too.
