As it was a "milestone" birthday for my husband the day our cruise started and so it wasn't much of good use of his time spending hours on the roads getting to Southampton, I booked what I hoped was a "5 Star" hotel for the night before. Well, this place certainly didn't disappoint on any fronts.
It proved to be a really beautiful hotel with plenty of character comprising an "olde-worlde" whitewashed inn containing the bar and restaurant and just a few steps away an obviously more modern, but still very characterful large red brick thatched house containing the bedrooms.
The rooms were individually furnished and beautifully finished - just about as far from a hotel "chain" bedroom as you can get. Our large gleaming shower room was ultra modern and had plenty of very high class toiletries.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the food at the evening meal was absolutely divine. As a measure of its popularity, the restaurant and bar were really busy on that January Monday night!
All in all a delightful luxury hotel which proved good value and I would certainly be happy to recommend it to everyone needing top class accommodation in the Southampton area. I would certainly use it if we go on any more cruises from this port.
