It was nice - the grounds are lovely! The food that we had (only a snack) was terrible, this isn't to say that the main meals out of the kitchen are bad because we didn't try it.
Nice idea that the rooms are out of the main building and almost cabin like.
It is a beautiful place and the staff were lovely!

Very convenient for shopping at West Quay and the theatre, which was the reason for our visit. Food was very good and staff very pleasant. Staff on reception were dealing with telephone calls as well as check-in and guest queries, making service slow. Also concierge was not manned so again had to queue at reception for concierge assistance. However, would recommend hotel and would return.
This was set up as a treat for a friend: nice hotel, nice meal, pleasant room, NICE. But problems from the start. The double room was a Twin which required a long walk to reception to complain. It was eventually put right. We had to book a table upon arrival as we were told the restaurant was almost fully booked, but it was half empty when we ate. The service was poor. The food was especially disappointing with VERY small portions on the starters and the Main was a joke. It would have only half filled a side-plate with tiny chicken breast, two very small baby carrots, half a small mushroom and two bites of potato. The food tasted great but was VERY expensive for the small portions. Afterwards, coffee in the lounge was served after a VERY long wait by a surly lady who didn't smile. This is a not friendly hotel which seems to employ a lot of people with difficulty speaking understandable English.
We stayed in this hotel overnight before going on a cruise holiday it was perfectly placed for shops and the quay. After reading some dreadful reviews we weren't sure what to expect everyone was very friendly and helpful the room was very pleasant and the reviews said too hot to sleep our room was well aired and even the window opened if you wanted more air. The breakfast was very good with a great choice I have a dietery problem but nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly stay in this hotel again.
A typical, modern hotel situated a short walk from the city centre & the rail & coach stations & yet it looks out on the extensive green heart of Southampton.
Walk across the the parks & past the shopping malls to discover the rich history that Southampton wears so lightly. Past the Bargate (Roman) you can call in to the Dolphin or the Star, both historic coaching inns. A little further is the Red Lion, a pub where Henry V held a court on his way to Agincourt. Just around the corner are Tudor House & The Bugle, which may be the oldest pub in Britain.
The history of the port is everywhere, from memorials to Titanic & Mayflower to links with the great transatlantic liners & the part Southampton played in D-Day & the price it paid during WW2.

My experience was first class until I came to leave when I found out that I had been charged £5.00 for parking my car. This was astonishing as I had no alternative due to the hotel's location and I was not aware from all the information I received. Whilst the charge is minimal, it is the principle that matters. It somewhat tainted the experience. I have stayed at may Premier Inn's in my life who always make you aware there is a car parking charge!
Set on a broad inlet, Southampton is the largest city in southern England and cruise capital of Northern Europe. Some of the world’s largest liners are based here and many more visit regularly. The centre is modern but retains several historic buildings, two excellent art galleries, two theatres, plus good eating, drinking and shopping. Ocean Village leisure complex at the marina features a new museum of aviation.
