The hotel is a bit worn and shabby, but okay if all you want is an overnight stay before cruising from Southampton. Our double room was tiny and cramped. The bed was comfortable. The view from our room was bricks and concrete and office windows. You can't open the windows properly and there are net curtains that you can't open, so you can't tell if it is raining outside until you go down to the lobby. Walking to the City Terminal would be possible. A taxi might cost you up to a tenner because they charge whilst stuck in the traffic queues trying to get to Ikea, which they built in a silly place.Walking to the places where there is food and drink is easily possible. Frankie and Benny's is not too far. This hotel has seen much better days.
Les plus: It wasn't expensive and was available when the hotels nearer the port were fully booked.
Les moins: The rooms need a bit of TLC. It would be good not to leave a great strip of veneer that had been stripped off the side of the dresser leaning against.
Emplacement: Opposite a small park and about 20 minutes walk from the National bus terminal. About 30 minutes walk to the City cruise terminal. Off licence nearby.
