Nice room, clean bathroom, hot in the room as windows dont open sufficiently, but the manager did lend a fan to the room to help cool us down.

Seems like a lovely place. They have a system to let you in after hours that works well, especially if you're stuck in traffic.
The location is good, near the park.
Free guest parking and excellent wifi.
Breakfast excellent.
Rooms are large.
Could do with bigger duvets on the twin beds, as a guy I hate getting cold every time I move in the night.

Not quite 5 stars but no negatives.

Came for a Christmas party. The food they served for the buffet was fantastic, especially the buttery prawns. The drinks were reasonably priced and I was able to pay on debit card without setting up a tab. There is an outside seating area which I imagine is lovely when it is not raining.

Was a guest at a wedding reception there, it was a nice venue with good outdoor space as well as nice seating and a reasonably well stocked double sided bar, the catering was excellent. Would have been a 5 but the fizzy soft drinks had run out of syrup and were only just carbonated they were swapped efficiently once we realised but at £2.40 each for a large glass that was not much more than half a pint, they should have been right the first time. Also the car park is very small although there is quite a bit of space in road which is well lit and in a nice area.

Professionally, as a musician, this is my IDEAL venue and it is a real pleasure to be able to make people happy with a great welcome, an awesome atmosphere, amazing food and two wonderful new owners...

Check me out, I'm Lucy Tiggi Neal, I live around the corner and I LOVE it here, I often play with Jonathan Fashole-Luke and Katie Stacey Ross on a Sunday, including this coming Sunday (28th Oct).

Please come along and support Elliott and Becky in putting the Blue Keys on the map in Southampton!

Honestly guys, it's worth it, hope to see you there!

The Blue Keys Hotel has a fabulous Bar and Restaurant which is open every evening except Sunday from 5.30-9pm but Sunday Lunch is served from 12pm. There is an array of home-cooked food including vegetarian options and a separate gluten free menu packed full of choices. It is an ideal location for functions of all natures- weddings, wakes, birthdays. There are ten bedrooms so it's only a stumble away if you do stay over! You won't be disappointed.

A friendly, laid-back venue with staff who are always helpful. We had our wedding party here and it was absolutely perfect! Some of the guests were saying it was the best wedding venue they'd ever been to due to its facilities, music and ambiance as well as the beautiful garden. We had very special circumstances and they were very accommodating of this and were super despite only being given a few days notice. They made us feel right at home for all the time we were there. Thank you so much!

Nice clean hotel. Lovely to smell fresh linen as we laid in the bed. The food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast. Lovely friendly staff. Decor was also very well done. It looked Christmassy, well cared for and it was a nice little find for one night stay in Southampton thanks!

Would highly recommend this venue for any function. The layout was cosy, offering different areas for dancing, sitting at tables or at the bar and had plenty of space for our 70 guests. Staff were all really helpful and friendly. Party buffet was good quality and there was plenty of it. Everyone had a wonderful night, thank you so much to James and the team!

We went for a wedding reception, the disco was down a few little steps and the tables up steps meant you could talk to each other if you weren't dancing! Bar was very expensive tho, food was basic but very nice and lots of it, beer garden was very busy but also very spacious. Well thought out venue and perfect for the evening, just don't drink too much!

Just had my 50th there. Great to hire the whole venue with bedrooms. Very impressed with cleanliness & decor of rooms. Big plus was the buffet. Everyone was talking about how gorgeous it was particularly the desserts!!! Just a sham music/bar can't stay open longer due to residential area.

Big Thank you to Colin and all the Team at The Blue Keys for making my daughters 1st Birthday a great day. The BBQ food and desserts tasted fantastic and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We will definitely be thinking of holding any future events with you again.

Booked room for Roy Chubby Brown at Guildhall and the show was cancelled at lunchtime. Asked to rebook room for when Chubby was there , as had no use for it and they refused. Poor at best considering they now get paid and then let the room out again.

Very poor indeed for sure considering we would have booked a room when show rescheduled.

Pity as looked like a nice place.was testing the place for many business bookings which would have followed if we liked it.

Fantastic to visit such a breast feeding supportive business. Thank you so much for making me and my 5month old little girl feel so welcome . We attended a busy wedding reception there last night . baby was distracted by all the excitement of the party, so I asked the lovely lady staff member if there was anywhere quiet we could sit and feed. She then showed us to a beautiful hotel room upstairs that was not occupied, put the heating on and told me to take as long as we needed. And the room was there for us to use all night when needed. Excellent thank you from a happy mum and baby � � � ��
