Set on a small, private marina with a striking ’super yacht’ style design stunning contemporary interiors throughout, and first-class facilities Southampton’s only 5-star hotel is a stand-out venue for any conference, meeting or event up to 350 guests.
Meetings & private events work so much better in great venues, in great locations. 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. Open in 2017, it has earned Southampton’s only five-star designation to date. It therefore ranks as one of the city’s premier event venues.
The hotel has two impressive spaces to choose from, listed below, both with floor-to-ceiling windows and views over the Solent seascape. With flexible capacity up to 350 guests, they can accommodate all sizes and types of event, including conferences, workshops, meetings and receptions.
For exceptional eating and drinking during your event, our passionate chefs have prepared a selection of appetising menus - we call it ‘brain food’ – anything from tea & cakes to set menus and platter-style, banquet feasts. And to take the stress out of organisation, and to ensure your event will run smoothly, we’ll provide you with the services of a dedicated event coordinator.
For before and after your event, we can offer attendees discounted room rates for those wishing to stay, an award-winning restaurant, a destination rooftop bar, plus access to the luxury spa and state-of-the-art gym. We can also help with great, locally-themed activities and experiences. See our staff’s recommendations of the best activities, attractions & events in Southampton and the wider Dorset and Hampshire area here.
The hotel is readily accessible for attendees. It’s located close to the city centre and cruise terminals, a few minutes’ drive from Southampton’s central train station and airport, and is easily accessed from both the nearby M27 and M3 motorways.
All of our hotels are accessible, and help is always on hand for those who need assistance.
Here at Harbour Hotels, we understand that exceptional food & drink can enliven even the most arduous meeting or event; indeed, good ‘brain food’, as we call it, can boost your meeting’s productivity, and do wonders for your attendees’ event experience (and return rate).
Our passionate chefs have created a number of different menu options for you to select from. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus, or even choose our ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style for communal feasting.
This large and impressive first-floor event room features floor-to-ceiling windows, spectacular, sparkling chandeliers, and panoramic views of the marina and Solent seascape. It’s ideally suited to large conferences, receptions, and events.
The smaller of our two event rooms, but no less grand, ‘The Needles’ also features floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the marina and Solent seascape. It’s ideal for conferences, receptions, and events. It may also be subdivided into 4 sections for smaller events.
Located on the ground floor, the hotel’s cinema can be booked for private screenings. You choose the film, we provide sumptuous seating, statement lighting and, on request, a selection of sweet and savoury essential cinema snacks.
Below we’ve listed our ‘off-the-shelf’ packages to help get your planning started.
