We were a couple staying after my finacee arrived completed a 20-day cross-Atlantic sailboat race (me, being the saner of the two, arrived by plane). We had soggy clothes, a huge box that needed to be shipped to the states, laundry that needed doing, and in general just a lot of help. The staff was extraordinary. The dining room staff...

The best things about this hotel are the lovely sea views from its terrace and the friendly and helpful staff. We also enjoyed our breakfasts, I particularly liked the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which were nicely presented and delicious. We had one evening meal here during our three night stay, which on the whole was very good and the...

We were a party of five family members, staying for just one night. Due to travel we were too tired to go in search of supper elsewhere and so we chose to eat from the extensive bar meals menu. The staff were happy to serve us supper and drinks on the terrace and it was very pleasant with good food....

The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Located across the road from the waterfront with yachts sailing and ships passing as they enter and leave Southampton. The staff were exceptional as was the proprietor ( with a wicked sense of humour ) The food could not be faulted. The hotel is amongst the best we have stayed in and...

Not many hotels can bring you a beer and know what room you're staying in. feels very much like a home from home. Wonderful views and sunsets across the solent. Food is very good off bar or a la carte.

A wedding venue with a difference. Excellent service, food and decor. Beautiful view of the Solent from the Dining Room. An old building of character built c.1870? Just the venue to sit back in the front lounge and enjoy watching the various yachts, launches, ferries etc.

I attended a wedding on June 6 2015. The hotel was a perfect venue. The food was superb, the view fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were there for 12 hours (as were some of the staff) and the time flew by.
