Fun bar in the afternoon. Rooms are very clean and neat with updated bathrooms. Walls are very thin so you can those in other rooms talking. Staff in hotel and restaurant/bar go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. For the price it is a good value. Location is incredible. Walk to museums, shopping, bars, restaurants. Easy taxi...

A group of us spent two nights here on a business trip. We chose the place because of the convenient location. Close by are a number of great dining places. All walking distance. The place is charming, and has the Atmosphere of is best described as an English Hotel. The rooms are big enough and furnished authentically. There is no...

We stayed at Cargo for one night mid-week as we had booked to see a show at the nearby Mayflower Theatre. Friendly, efficient and professional welcome, nice trendy and modern bar. Our room (The Loft) was located on the top floor and was, on the surface very nice. However on closer inspection the room was tired, the shower was grubby,...

We visited on Friday when the weather was miserable and had breakfast. It was presented so nicely and the food was fantastic! Would definitely recommend. The staff were exceptionally friendly, especially when the chef brought the food out!

Stayed here for one night as we were in Southampton for a party. Didn't fancy the usual chain hotels so went for something a bit more boutique like. Not disappointed with the choice, lovely small shabby chic styled place with a nice bar and restaurant. Staff were great, so friendly and helpful. We were offered a free drink because the...

Nice little hotel in the heart of Southampton. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast, great bar with a lot to offer. Rooms were clean, but quite small. Bathrooms are newly renovated and really good looking. Overall a nice stay for a short trip in lovely Southampton.

This small hotel was great for a one night stay being very central. We stayed in the loft room and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom could be improved as it had sloping shelves in the shower, so there was nowhere to put anything. Staff were friendly and helpful and the cooked breakfast was very good. We...

Strange hotel ... Bar area was really nice and John and Josh really know how to look after their customers. Food was disappointing, especially at those prices. Rooms were more shabby than shabby chic! Look at the skirting boards on the stairs to the toilets, which were definitely more backstreet pub than boutique hotel. Bathroom was nice, but the room...
