The Holiday Inn offers a "cruise package".
We used for our Christmas/New Year 16 day cruise.
We paid £154 for bed/ breakfast and 16 days parking.
The hotel added a complimentary cream tea and a free taxi from the hotel to the cruise terminal on departure.

This website is all about options for Southampton.
The last couple of times we have had free parking at Southampton with P & O - this is offered on some cruises by various cruise lines and means you just drive up to the terminal entrance and your luggage and car are taken from you and your car is there at Southampton on your return without having to get a taxi back to your car - we normally stay at a Premier Lodge just outside Southampton the night before and it is just a short drive to the terminal.
Yes,there is a nice Holiday Inn at Eatleigh,just outside Southampton.Free parking for duration of cruise but you need a taxi for the return journey-about £15.
I've used it on at least 3 occasions.

We use C P S (Cruise & Passenger Services Ltd) they take the car away as you unload, then it is there when you come back, last year we went on the Q M 2, on arriving back The Queen was visiting the Q E 2 to say goodbye, so we had to dock further up, had an initial worry that we would have to walk down to the Q M 2 terminus to collect our car, but they had in the carpark where we docked, its about £130 for two weeks, (we have a camper van, so ours is a bit dearer,as they go on length)
they also offer various services, clean, service petrol filling etc (all extra, of course) they have a website email@example.com. we use this as my husband is disabled, so they park it near the front of the carpark, so he does not have to far to walk. hope this helps. have a good trip...........

Our parking was pre-booked with the cruise, it is very easy, very well orgainised and not far to walk once you park your car. I was very impressed with everything. Upon our return a nice car park attendant even helped us put out luggage in the car!

Hi, we always stay at the Express Holiday Inn, Botley Rd, Southampton. The hotel is very good and you will find that lots of people who are cruising stay here. The next day when you are due to board ship you are only 10 minutes away. This hotel is approximately £65 as we have just booked it for ourselves for April. Have a good cruise you will love it.
