We are planning a trip to visit the museum, and will be flying into Southampton from Newcastle. We are hiring a car (as we've checked that the museum isn't that far to drive).
We are looking to stay just one night (a Saturday) then flying home, we've stayed in various Hilton hotels a number of times and were considering staying at the Hilton Southampton, we are aware that it is on the outskirts and not city centre (this is ok as its only for a 1-night stay before flying home)
However after reading some of the reviews it doesn't seem to be of the usual Hilton high standards, now I'm not so sure.
All we want is a nice, clean hotel with a bar / restaurant which is easy to drive to (we haven't visited this area of the country before - was a touch concerned as to how easy the town centre is to navigate - we know how difficult Newcastle can be).
Any idea's of where to stay which would be convenient for the Museum? Thank you
