A Disappointment

Posted Jun 15, 2013
Pros: The manager was very friendly
Cons: The place needs fixing up. A staff member should be on duty all day. At 1 pm we could not find anyone
Location: Very poor location. No shops, restaurants or pubs anywhere close that we could find.
My husband and I arrived to a very friendly greeting. However that was the only good part of this guest house. It's in a very seedy part of Southampton and quite run down. The double room was very small and the bed was very uncomfortable. The room was very dark with virtually no lighting. It was just very grim and depressing. When we first arrived, I just dropped off our baggage and went on an errand.My mistake was not checking out the room immediately. When we returned we noticed the poor condition of the room and want ed to discuss with the manager but there was no one around. We ended up not staying and went elsewhere. I am going to request a full refund. The guest house is nothing like advertised.

Lovely, friendly B&B

Posted May 31, 2011
We stayed at this B&B on the May long weekend as a starting point for a visit to the New Forest and Isle of Wight. A 10 min walk from Southampton train station, it was a handy spot for transport links to both places (2-3 train stops to Ashurst/Lymington, and a free shuttle bus to the ferry wharf for Isle of Wight). Service was very helpful and friendly, and provided one of the best B&B breakfast menus I've had (eggs benedict was a winner!) A little too far out of town to walk into restaurants etc, but again the train station a short walk away, and a taxi was only £5-6.

Hôtel Alcantar Guest house

Posted May 31, 2011 on Hotels
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans ce tres sympathique hôtel. Cet hôtel est à proximité de la gare centrale , parfaitement accessible à pieds en 10 min, l'acceuil a été très chaleureux ,le personnel et en particulier la responsable de l'hotel aux petits soins pour nous. nous avons apprécier Les breakfasts remarquablement bien préparés et servis dans une petite salle très agréable . Etonnant et rare la propreté , par exemple: pas une trace de goutte d'eau sur la porte vitrée de la douche apres la remise en état de notre chambre et cela plusieurs jours de suite. En résumé , nous vous recommandons vivement cet établissement. L'équipe de l'hotel mérite de travailler. Félicitations si elle lit notre avis .
