I found myself unexpectedly in Southampton and stayed at the Novotel for what turned into a 2 night stay. The hotel charges £10 per hour for late check outs after 1pm but requires a full night booking after 5pm. The hotel is situated in a car park with the Ibis and Ibis Express and is the more expensive option of the three. I had a superior room but I'm not sure what the difference is. The room faced the car park and was very quiet. Room service was efficient and I was called to warn me that it was on its way. I thought this was quite unusual but probably a good idea since someone tried to use their key to get into my room later that night. It was after the world cup final so I guess their faculties were diminished but it wasn't particularly pleasant shouting through the door to tell him to go away. Staff were courteous and almost all EU, not UK. There is a decent looking gym and smallish pool area both of which looked nice. I was surprised that there is no free parking for guests and it came to £6 per day. I guess it stops cruise ship passengers from blocking the spaces but I think it's expensive even though you can come and go during the day. There is not much to see in the area but there is a large retail park- Ikea, John Lewis, Decathlon etc for those who can't survive without shops.
