    Eclipse Transatlantic 11/3/13

    We are booked on this cruise and thought about staying the night in Southampton instead of London. Any suggestions as to what part of town and any hotels or inns you may recommend? Thank you. Stephen

    Let me send Lanky Lad that question. He is the expert on Southampton.

    Thanks Neal, There are a few hotels on West Quay Road which is close to the river and hand for all the cruise terminals. Depending on how much you want to spend there is the Ibis budget hotel, the Ibis, the Novotel, the Holiday Inn and the Grand Harbour hotel. There are also lots of small hotels and inns. We stay in the Ibis, which is basic, but clean. The main reason is that it's very hand for the Central Station.

    A good reason to stay in Southampton rather than London - $100 a night difference on Holiday Inn rates.

    Thanks so much for the info. I think we are going to try a small hotel called Cargo. I'll let you know what we thought of it after our stay.
