With a great central Southampton location and overlooking the port, this 4-star hotel is in an ideal spot for exploring the attractions of the city centre. The old city walls, the West Quay shopping centre, the Mayflower Theatre and the cruise terminals are all less than 1km away, or within a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
If you're keen for a day trip, the property is a 9-minute drive from the New Forest, where there is a whole host of walking and cycling trails through the National Park. The pretty villages of Beaulieu and Brockenhurst -- both also within the New Forest, and each about a 25-minute drive from the hotel -- are also worth seeing. A little further afield, Portsmouth is a 30-minute drive, and the coastal attractions of Bournemouth are 40 minutes by car, with a scenic drive through the New Forest.
The hotel's Elements Restaurant features a contemporary international breakfast, lunch and dinner menu complimented with a comprehensive drinks list, and you can dine al fresco on the outdoor terrace if preferred. There is also a late-night Elements Bar for cocktails and light meals. If you fancy a night in or a lazy lie in, you can opt for a spot of room service and have breakfast in bed.
After a day exploring Southampton and the surrounding areas, you can unwind in the hotel's leisure facilities. There's a heated indoor pool, a sauna and a fitness centre, all complimentary for guests.
The hotel has 121 modern rooms, each with a private bathroom, large work area, free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen television, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Upgrade to an Executive Room for extra perks including Nespresso coffee machines, Bose iPod docking stations, bathrobes, slippers and luxe toiletries. Family rooms sleep two adults and two children, with free breakfast for kids and a complimentary late checkout of 5pm on a Sunday. Selected rooms are also pet-friendly.
