Try the Holiday Inn in Southampton. It may not be the absolute cheapest, but the rooms are large with plenty of room for baggage, food good at breakfast.

IBIS Novotel is opposite dock gates 10 where RCI Navigator docked, not sure exactly where QM2 docks but can't be too far away. Around £60 roo.

There are no cheap hotels in Southampton. The demand created by the large number of cruise liners visiting the port see to that. Try various web booking agencies... you should be able to find around £50-60 and maybe get breakfast included. If you are coming by car, avoid Jury's Inn as there is no car park. I've found Novotel to be consistently cheap... and it's within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Hi there. I guess it really depends on what you mean by "Cheap" - The lowest price I have paid was at the Holiday Inn Express (Southampton West) but to be honest, it was little more than a room. If you are prepared to pay around £80 or so (per room), I can recommend The Holiday Inn (Southampton), The Ibis Hotel (Southampton) and The Novotel (Southampton). All three are situated on the docks and perhaps even more importantly, the city centre of Southampton is only 5 minutes walk away meaning that there is much more choice in regard to food options in the evening - indeed, the obligatory 'Wetherspoons' is within a 10 minute walk. In addition, the facilities are much more comfortable at all three hotels. Whatever happens, I hope you have a fantastic journey aboard the most beautiful ship in the world .

The Premier Travel Inn is the cheapest and closest with comfort, just behind the road from Dock Gate Four, but if you really want cheap and comfort of a sorts try going online to www.travelodge.co.uk and checking out their supersavers rooms and savers rooms from £15 per room. have fun in the su.

Trevor Smith's blog

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
