Room2 – A place to live, not just to stay

Room2 – A place to live, not just to stay

What if I was to tell you that something new and exciting has arrived to Southampton? Somewhere where you can take your favourite bits of staying at a hotel as well as the comfort of your home and mesh them together for the night, or two, or more. I would like to introduce you to Room2, Southampton’s very first Hometel.

I was invited along to the launch evening and I have never been so excited. The vibe was insane. We were greeted with welcome drinks at the bar and had a wonder around the breakfast/dining area which was super cosy. It even has a Pantry! Fully stocked with fresh fruit, drinks, spices, ready meals, gluten and dairy free options, dry ingredients, you’re good to go if you want to cook a good meal. Feeling a bit more lazy? Light meals are also available, it’s all about the pizza, soups, noodles and more. Fancy a takeaway? You can do that too!

The design is simply beautiful and modern I just had to get those shots. Take a look…


Love it yet? We had the opportunity to explore the rooms and boy was it fabulous. With a variety of sizes, colours and layouts there is so much to offer. They all have a fully equipped kitchen, large king beds, plenty of space to relax or work, as well as a lounge loft which can be accessed using the step ladder, bunk bed vibes for sure hey? It was clear to me that each room had been carefully crafted and designed so that there is something for everyone, as well as enabling you to settle in and live just like it’s your own home.

We all love a little quirky quote aswell don’t we. You’ll be sure to find a few of them lying around too. ‘Okay mirror, lets do this’ is my fave.

The breakfast buffet looks scrumptious too. There is a choice of warm pastries, fruit, toast, OR fancy being a chef for the morning? You can make your own waffles too. Yes. Waffles. At the launch we even had a go ourselves and I’m sure you can understand how content this made me. Also Coffee Mongers are the coffee providers for Room2 and even though I’m not a fan of coffee, I’ve heard fab things so I’m sure you’ll love it.


It doesn’t end there. Room2 also includes a studio gym, you’ll have no excuse for skipping that session. There is also a laundry area, meeting space, and parking which is £15 per night. Plus fancy a lay in? Forget about those morning check out times, they do things a bit differently. Check in is at 2pm and out at 2pm, the room is yours for the day. Make the most of it. AND my most favourite part is that Room2 is pet friendly! Bring the whole family.


We all love a cocktail, am I right? I tried my first ever espresso martini. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.


Making new friends is one of my most favourite part of the blogging world. It’s opportunities like these that help you in doing so and it’s great. Of course we couldn’t resist getting a little mirror selfie.

Have I persuaded you to take a visit? At the moment Room2 are offering half price stays throughout June, grab it whilst you can at

Another big thank you to Room2 for holding the most exciting event and for bringing Southampton the most wonderful new concept hometel. Oh, and have I mentioned that Southampton now has its very first instagrammble hotel? Don’t you think?

I’ll be back soon!
