3 reviews of The White Star in English
The White Star Tavern is a sophisticated bar with luxury accommodation located in Southampton city centre. I stayed there this weekend with my partner visiting family.
Although there is no parking at the White Star - there is on street parking available and we found a spot straight away. It is clear that the area, although already busy is undergoing some refurbishment which is good to see.
On arrival at the White Star we enquired at the car and were shown up stairs to check in. We were asked if we needed help with luggage and given a full introduction to the hotel, on site staff, facilities and service. We were made to feel incredibly welcome - a personal touch that means a lot.
We had booked a room on the second floor - due to reports about noise from the bar. We stayed in room 9 - a deluxe and paid £109 for room only. The room is at the front of the hotel, it is large, freshly decorated with an en-suite bathroom. The decoration is modern and sophisticated and luxurious. There are heavy, lined curtains to block out the light and a comfortable king size bed in which to sleep. The white linen is clean and crisp - we both slept incredibly well.
There is attention to detail throughout, a laptop safe, flat screen tv, high quality tea and coffee tray. The bathroom is the ultimate hotel chic with limestone tiles and a huge walk-in monsoon shower. My only complaint would be that I knocked my head on the glass shelf over the sink when washing my face! The bathroom has ample White Company toiletries - a really nice touch.
Although there is no room service, the staff essentially told us that they would be happy to see to our every need. Food in the restaurant looked very good - unusual and local dishes at reasonable prices although we did not eat there that night. Breakfast is not included in the room price but is also reasonably priced and available from 09:00 at the weekend. We chose eggs Benedict for £5.50 which were cooked to perfection and utterly delicious.
I left the White Star with only one regret, that we could not stay longer. The White Star is warm and welcoming, the staff are genuinely interested in making your stay memorable. I can not recommend the White Star highly enough.
The White star is situated in Oxford Street near to ocean village at the bottom end of Southampton. The White Star is elegant and stunning and is used by young and old groups of people as well as couples. The White Star is in a beautiful area in Southampton and is surrounded by lots of other bars and restaurants nearby, but i feel the White Star stands out above all the other restaurants in this area. There is a seating area at the front where you can sit and relax and watch the world go by or you can sit inside on very comfortable seats which gives you the feel that you are sat at home in your own living room. The food is nothing less than first class in my opinion and service was quick and efficient. A place i would go on a saturday night to be wined and dined.
