    Hi, Check in is available between 2pm and 10.30pm every day. A late check in can be arranged if necessary. Kind regards, The Blue Keys
    My husband and I are leaving for a cruise from Southampton on August 31. We will be flying into London (Gatwick) on the 29th, and are looking to stay two nights, the 29th and 30th. Do you have a room available on those dates? Also, I have never traveled to the UK before, but am assuming that taking the train from Gatwick to Southampton is the most sensible and affordable option -- is that assumption correct? How far away are you from the train station?

    Hi, Thank you for your enquiry, There are several dock gates for cruise ships so it depends which one you require but they are all between 2 and 4 miles from us. We can organise you a cab, they usually arrive pretty quickly... More
