We have stayed in this one - Novotel 1 West Qua it is a 3-star hotel is ideally located right in the heart of the city, just a few minutes walk from West Quay shopping and the city centre.
The excellent location of Novotel Southampton means that you will have easy access to Southampton Central railway station, and Town Quay ferry and cruise ship terminals. It is an excellent base for sightseeing south coast England with attractions including Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals, New Forest and Portsmouth historical docks. Modern, spacious and comfortable bedrooms, with broadband and Wi-Fi connections, can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children. Listen to your own music in the bedroom or bathroom - an iPod/MP3 player cable is provided free of charge. The newly refurbished restaurant and bar offers a variety and choice of healthy meals. Might be worth contacting them.
Forgot to give you the phone number 023 8033 0550 and it is 121 rooms 3 star and guests average rating out of 10 is 7.6.
Thanks ...we had looked at Novotel, but weren't too sure exactly where it was ....great to know it's in city centre and near cruise terminal ..and the restuarant sounds good too. Will check it out. Thanks too for the phone number and other information.
You could try the Holiday in at Eastliegh.They have in the past provided Car Parking and Bus to Cruise Terminal But you have to make your own way back to the Hotel who will arrange a Taxi if you ask.
Right next door to novotel is the new etap hotel.£30 per room per night, unbelievable spacious and perfect if all you want is a bed for the night. TGI Fridays and McDonalds right next door and on the cruise terminals doorstep.
Thanks a lot - will check it out.
