Our daughter booked this for us for a one night stay when visiting her based on the photos on their website. The room we were given was beautifully decorated, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom immaculate. It had everything we needed for our stay. The breakfast was delicious and the owner and her staff could not have been...

My husband was having an operaton at the Spire Hosp so my daughter and I booked into the Alcantara for one night. We were welcomed with tea and cakes, maps of the area and all sorts of other useful information. Beds were comfortable and breakfast was fabulous. Very friendly, helpful staff and nothing was any trouble for them. Would definitely...

We stayed here as I was having an operation the following morning at southampton General hospital. I was extremely nervous and was made to feel completely at ease by the lovely lady running the accommodation. Our room was lovely and homely which is just what I needed to make me feel comfortable. It was spotlessly clean and great value for...

I wanted a cheap option for a single room for one night and this looked good. I wasn't disappointed: in fact I was delighted! Really warm, comfortable, cosy room, really nice welcome and excellent hospitality. The breakfast was first-class - better than I'd had in a 4* hotel a few days earlier. Lots of fresh fruit and perfectly cooked scrambled...

Stayed at this B&B whilst visiting our son at Southampton University. It is located very close to his hall of residence, which is one of the reasons we chose it. It is a pretty standard British B&B - not a boutique hotel - but it's a pretty good one and has much to recommend it. Firstly the delightful owner, AJ,...

I stayed here for a friend's wedding and booked fairly last minute, so rather than a lazy choice of 'some chain hotel', I booked this lovely little guest house. The lady who checked me in was so wonderfully welcoming and after realising how long my journey was she furnished me with a couple of local brochures, taxi numbers, local advice...

I usually don't relax on my first night away from home, but the instant we arrived we felt welcome. We were greeted by a warm lady who ensured we had all the information we needed. This lady also had a wealth of knowledge about the area and suggested places where we may like to spend our afternoon. We had booked...
