Southampton. Because…

We are truly blessed with some of the finest 3-4 star properties located in equally desirable locations around the city. Here is why serviced accommodation in Southampton is the perfect option for you.

Located on England’s south coast, Southampton has been a major port since the 13th Century and was home to the RMS Titanic. The Maritime Museum in the Wool House features an exhibition on the ill-fated liner. Many of our 4 star apartments are located in South Western House, a Grade II listed building and offer high luxury to any stay.

The main station in the city is Southampton Central with excellent links to London and other south coast towns and cities. Southampton Airport is located in the town of Eastleigh, just north of Southampton. It is connected to the city by a frequent rail service, and hosts flights to UK and some European destinations with expansion to routes in 2016.

Southampton harbour is no longer used for car ferries to Europe, but remains the embarkation point for many cruise liners. Sailing is very popular, and Southampton Water has been the start and finish of the Round the World Yacht Race for 30 years as well as the Southampton Boat Show.  We have a great history with many passengers who like to stay before they set sail or simply step off and explore the UK. Not far from our serviced properties is Town Quay, to gateway to the Isle Of Wight via Red Funnel ferries. Go high speed on the Red Jet or take the car for the ultimate excursion.

The main retail facility is the West Quay Shopping Centre, which was the biggest city-centre shopping mall in Europe when it was opened. With a vast array of stores and restaurants business and pleasure go hand in hand.
The largest green space is Southampton Common which covers a larger area than Hyde Park in London and includes a Wildlife Centre, a swimming pool and several lakes and ponds. Less then 30 minutes from the city centre is the New Forest, a beautiful untouched haven perfect for hiking or biking.

Southampton has always had a vibrant night life, from the bars and restaurants of Oxford Street to the clubs in Bedford place. If a quiet drink and a bite to eat is your thing Ocean Village hosts the perfect location to unwind and let your hair down or why not catch a show at the Mayflower Theatre. Take advantage of our exclusive Discount Card, attached to your keys for the best money off deals to guests.

Exploring this historical city will take you back in time with visits to many museums displaying the history of Southampton and links beyond. The Sea City museum, once the old Magistrates Court now home to much treasured Titanic memorabilia.

Southampton is oozing with delights just waiting to be explored  – be our guest.
