Pick a hotel you wish to stay in and take a cab.

Nearest are Ibis & Ibis Budget & Novotel, about 550 yds in one direction, or Premier Inn West Quay and Moxy, also 500 yds in the other direction. All on level ground.

Or there's a small taxi rank at the coach station 

Check latest hotel check-in times

(time/distance shown is total from Premier Inn to coach station to Ibis)

The Southampton Harbor Hotel is beautiful, but way too expensive for three nights and we need two rooms.  We will be staying in Winchester after our daughter flies home.

 

I liked the look of "Leonardo Royal" but reviews are iffy.

 

Thoughts?

I am staying at Mercure in Winchester for 3 nights.  I stayed there in 2018.  If you sign up for www.accor.com their loyalty program you get 5% discount.

I'm a local.

I have never stayed at this property, but the location is excellent - convenient to cruisers, a five minute walk to the city centre shopping & restaurant malls, and the sights, pubs & restaurants of the old town.

5,000 reviews on this link, but the hotel was acquired by Leonardo Royal in 2019, so bear that in mind with the earlier reviews.

I have stayed at Premier Inn West Quay a few times.  Not sure where Leonardo Royal Southampton Grand Habour in relation to Premier Inn West Quay.  If I remember, Premier Inn West Quay was on a curve on the road, an indoor pool was across the road and a hotel on the other side of inside pool?  It used to be Grand Harbour?

 

I am booked at Premier Inn West Quay, a twin with breakfast for 1 night Friday, May 27 for £132.98, can cancel up to 2pm, no payment.

 

I can get direct with Leonardo Royal Southampton Grand Harbour for the same date for £151,

breakfast, free cancellation up to 2pm on May 27, no payment.

 

I am wondering if worth switching to Leonardo Royal?

Thanks for the advice, we're booked at the Leonardo Royal

 

Something else checked off!

Did you join Leonardo’s loyalty program? Typically discounted pricing as soon as you sign up. They have properties all over Europe, and in my experience are very nice. Their B&B rates give you a very nice full breakfast that’s quite nice. 
 

I know nothing about this property, but I’ve been very impressed with their hotels.
