The Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn is located in Southampton Port. It’s the best option if you are looking for a simple, clean and tidy hotel room to stay in for one night, before heading off on your cruise. You cannot beat its location in terms of proximity to the cruise terminals, and room prices tend to be very competitive.
Southampton Harbour Hotel
This is another hotel that’s located in the harbour, so again it scores top marks in terms of accessibility to the cruise terminal. The Southampton Harbour Hotel is the perfect choice if you are looking for something luxurious, a little bit more than just a “basic” accommodation option. The hotel has an excellent rooftop restaurant, spa and sauna. It’s a really spectacular place to stay, with beautiful designs and an excellent choice of rooms.
Jurys Inn scores excellent marks on TripAdvisor for a great value for money hotel. The Ocean Cruise Terminal is located 1.5 miles away, and it’s about a 6-minute taxi drive to reach the terminal from the hotel. It’s comparable to the Holiday Inn in terms of providing a very solid accommodation and is perfect for a short stay.
