Arrived at the hotel early, due to distance of travel, and was able to be accommodated straightaway, not our original room assigned, none the less, we could at least store our luggage before heading out into town. Room was airy and spacious, although no air con (which many people have commented on), so wouldn't book this hotel in the height... More

Novotel in Southampton operates a flexible pricing policy for their hotel rooms. We booked a room overnight a month ago which ended up at 3 times the normal room rate due, we were told, to the high demand for rooms during the boat show in Southampton. The hotel was busy, though I did note they were selling rooms for the... More

Spent the night before picking up our cruise. Perfect location quayside, restaurants within easy reach. Room good, separate bathroom & toilet and room had a safe. Helpful staff. Good bar & food looked ok although we eat out. Expensive parking was discounted for patrons

We stayed here the night before our cruise. The location was very good and we could easily walk around the Old City and shopping to acclamate to the time change. Our room was clean and efficient. The only problem was there is no air conditioning and the weather was warm. Even with the window open it was stuffy. The dining... More

Liked the swimming pool, but the bar was very badly staffed. Left in the end and nobody seemed to care that you might be waiting there. Difficult to get a drink in the area full stop, ending up in TGI Fridays which was awful.

-Value for money was rubbish. £238- compared to under £100 for Premier Inn. Premier Inn would be at least as good facilities. We stayed here for the Boat Show, but stayed in London Aloft for the January Boat Show for half the price for a suite with way better accommodation and food. - Breakfast : at first sight was a...

Been several times, rooms are clean and simple. Close to town and perfect before a cruise, boat show, shopping etc. Staff are always friendly and helpful with helping you find somewhere to eat or getting a taxi. Great to have a pool and sauna. Will be back again soon.

Have stayed before and will stay again. Well located for everything in the city. Easy access. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Dinner perhaps a limited range but big portions, can eat in bar area or restaurant, which we prefer. Does have a small pool and a gym area. What's not to like? Very little really. Can be expensive, early booking generally... More

We arrived at Novotel Southampton at 10:00 am after a red-eye flight to Heathrow from Toronto. Our room wasn’t ready for early check-in, but we were given access to the shower/change room in the hotel fitness centre where we could freshen up. Afterwards, we stored our luggage at the Front Desk and went to the McDonald’s next door for lunch.... More
