The De Vere Grand Harbour is the most modern 5 star hotel in Southampton. It opened in 1994, has 173 comfortable rooms and a great location down near the harbour, close to most of the city's tourist attractions.
If you shop around online, a double room costs from as little as £64.50 per night, which for a British 5 star hotel is great value. The average price of a room, however, is £190. Rooms have TV, ports for laptops, minibar, tea and coffee maker, hair dryer, safe and trouser press. There are also luxurious suites with huge four poster beds and jacuzzis.
Facilities include four restaurants, two bars, an indoor swimming pool, sauna and a gym.
This b&b is family-run, and very friendly. The room we stayed in was a good size, with a double _and_ a single bed, tv, washbasin and cupboards. The breakfast was very good, and plenty of it too. It was a bit of a shame that they were having some building work done, as it was right outside our window and did block the light, but the workmen were very quiet.
It's situated very close to the city centre, only a few minutes walk to the shopping centres, and is also conveniently placed for the Mayflower theatre should you be wanting to take in a show!
£40 a night for a double room.

Text from a local lad....
I've had a few mates in the situation of needing somewhere to stay ASAP but thankfully my housemates & I have always had a spare bed or sofa for them. I've noticed a lot of B&Bs around the Polygon and the bottom of Hill Lane (train station end). I've never had to stay at any of these so I can't comment on the standard of accomodation. One place to try is the Bosuns Locker behind Castle Way. The landlady, Mary, is a sweetheart and has a few spare rooms, so it's always worth a try. Aug 05
Down to earth B and B`s
The Star Hotel is located on the High Street in Southampton which means it is ideally located whatever you want to do in Southampton - it is 2 minutes from the new shopping centre and 5 minutes to the docks (and we walk slow!).
The hotel is old and full of character.
We had a room at the front of the hotel whcih was great as you could pull the sofa up open the big sash windows and watch the world go by - however, if its a quiet weekend you are after - ask for a room at the back as Southampton comes alive in teh evenings and the clubbers seemed to gather on the opposite side of the road up until about 3am to get their kebabs and taxis.
The decor of the hotel seemed to vary from room to room - ours was nice and pleasant except the bathroom was in need of updating - it was clean and working but the advovado suite and beige walls did nothing to help me wake up in my early morning shower!
Staff are friendly and breakfast was good, but take your own newspaper as there are none supplied or available if you like a read over coffee.
Price was £65 per night for a twin room incl breakfast - usually £85 but there was a weekend deal on - ask if they have any deals on as it had run out when we went, but they still did it for us.
Nice hotel - would recommend.
Ideal location - 2 mins to shopping centre, 5 minutes to docks, 20 mins to football ground, 20 mins to train station.
Spent a night in this very comfortable hotel in May 2004.
It is situated in the outskirts of Southampton about 2 miles from the airport.
Ordered room service and service was speedy and food really quite tasty, also managed to use the gym and the pool which although small is nice'n'warm.
Hotel is situated near the motorway but u would think u were in the middle of the countryside when your in the grounds, surrounded by trees.
Good Food, nice reception/bar area, health club with pool handy.
This was a small, windowless stateroom and you haven't lived until you have tried to take a shower in high seas! No complaints though.
