The building is Grade II listed
The building began life as the South Western Hotel, designed by John Norton, opening its doors in 1872. The hotel served many passengers using the London & South Western Railway. The design was heavily influenced by the French Renaissance, and laid on with a heavy hand. The windows are elaborately framed and many of then fronted with little balconies with twirly ironwork. The roofs have slated double pitches, mansard fashion with attic dormer windows.
Its grandeur reflected the wealth of the shipping industry at that time. The public areas are particularly beautiful, with a great deal of marble and elaborate ironwork on the passenger lift shafts and the staircases. In fact the main staircase was the prototype for the grand staircase on the Titanic. The building still shows evidence of the grandeur of days gone by.
