Set on a small, private marina with a striking ’super yacht’ style design, our critically-acclaimed flagship hotel is known for its stunning contemporary interiors, luxury facilities and outstanding customer service. Opened since 2017, it has earned Southampton’s only five-star designation to date.
The 119 luxury rooms including 10 suites which all come with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, waterfall showers, Nespresso coffee machines and White Company toiletries as standard. Most rooms and suites have views over the marina, or out across the Solent to the Isle of Wight.
For relaxation and reinvigoration, the luxury spa features top-of-the-range ESPA products and treatments, a lap pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room, state-of-the-art gym, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, and a Spa Café, serving healthy snacks and smoothies.
For food and drink lovers, the hotel has an excellent in-house destination restaurant. The ground floor ‘Jetty’ – sister to the award-winning ‘Jetty’ restaurant in Christchurch – serves fresh, locally caught seafood with seasonal ingredients from the New Forest.
The hotel’s top floor features ‘HarBAR on 6th’, a spectacular rooftop destination bar, kitchen and club, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Solent, outdoor fire pits and a wood fired pizza oven on the terrace. HarBAR on 6th serves food all day - with live DJs and professional cocktail mixologists from 6pm.
The hotel is a few minutes away from the upmarket shopping and entertainment facilities of West Quay, and the cruise ports. For outdoor enthusiasts, it’s the ideal base for getting out onto the Solent, or for exploring the many picturesque landscapes and quaint villages of the surrounding New Forest.
