Southampton Hotel Reviews - Our Recommendations!

Southampton is the cruise capital of England and a city that we love to visit.

In this post we will show you a selection of Southampton hotels that we have stayed in prior to joining a cruise ship or when we have just been just enjoying a break in this fabulous city!

You can also find some great places to eat in our video here!

Holiday Inn, Herbert Walker Avenue, Southampton

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one night prior to getting on the Anthem of the Seas Cruise. We booked an executive room so that we had views of the cruise terminal. Check out our room tour and review to see what we thought!

Moxy Hotel, West Quay, Southampton

We stayed at the Moxy Hotel in West Quay Southampton before we joined the MSC Virtuosa Cruise Ship. In this video review we show you the hotel facilities and take you for a tour of the room. It was a great choice within walking distance of the City Cruise Terminal and not far from the other cruise terminals in Southampton too.

Leonardo Royal Southampton Grand Harbour Hotel

We stayed at the Leonardo Royal Southampton Grand Harbour Hotel before we joined the Crown Princess Cruise Ship for a visit. This Southampton hotel is in a prime location and we really enjoyed our stay. It is mid budget, and great for a treat. We are returning to Southampton next April to join the Regal Princess Cruise Ship and have already booked another stay here.

In this video we show you around the hotel and our room so you can see what you get for your money.

You can book your stay here at the Leonardo Royal Southampton Harbour Hotel with free cancellation.

Ibis Budget Southampton Hotels

We were visiting the Royal Princess Cruise Ship at the Ocean Cruise Terminal in Southampton and spent 2 days at the Ibis Budget Hotel. We booked a standard room with breakfast. It is a good choice for a short stay and if you only have a small budget.

Come and have a look around the hotel and room with us and see if it is suitable for your next stay in Southampton.
