We stayed at the Novotel, Southampton in February '08 as it was a great location for getting to the Mayflower Theatre and after staying at the Novotel in reading and being very impressed it seemed an obvious choice.
The receptionist was very friendly and ask which floor we would like to be on which is the first time that's ever happened. The hotel is near the main road to the docks in Southampton so ideally you will need a room facing the front of the hotel as this road runs at the back of it. I can not complain about the hotel as it was clean and did what your would expect from Novotel. However, I do have two little faults, Firstly the room was not one of there newly decorated rooms. If I could pick which floor I would like to of stay in why wasn't I given the option of a newly decorated room? Secondly, even though we were looking out the front of the hotel and not over the main road it was still fairly noisy.
Pros, Great location for Shopping, Watching the cruise liners coming into port and the Mayflower Theatre.
Cons, Fairly noisy and ask for a newly decorated room.
