We've stayed at the Holiday Inn in Southampton several times using their stay and park package. Everything is very well organised including a taxi to the terminal on the following day, the car park is secure, well lit and with barrier access.
The first time we stayed we were given a suite on the top floor - what a treat this was!!! A separate bedroom and sitting room with large flat screen TVs in both rooms, walk in wardrobe and beautiful bathroom and spectacular views over the old town and Red Funnel ferry area. And being so high up, it was quiet also so no traffic noise to disturb us!
Since then we've stayed in all other grades of rooms, and all have been fine with plenty of space, comfortable beds and good facilities.
We usually eat in the hotel restaurant at night, the food is good, there is a great choice and the hotels stocks one of our favourite New Zealand Marlborough wines! Breakfast is also very good, self service, with everything you could wish for, including a self service pancake machine !!!
We love the position of the hotel - on the waterside, with views on both sides to the various cruise terminals so you can usually see your ship when you wake in the morning. It's easy to walk into town also, there is an excellent shopping centre including a traditional town centre and a new shopping mall - excellent for all those last minute things that I forgot to pack! It's an easy walk to the old town and defensive walls, which we keep meaning to explore - maybe this next time we'll do that.
And finally, if you arrive before 4.30 ish, go outside to the Mayflower Park after you have checked in (literally just over the road) and you can watch the sail away of cruise liners, knowing that it will be your turn tomorrow!
