With Southampton’s mixture of class, carousing and culture, it’s the perfect balance of everything that you need to make for a perfect hen do, so it makes sense that your accommodation lives up to the same hype. That’s why we’ve picked out our top 6 hotels across the city, including everything from a high-end 4-star in the peaceful surrounding countryside, to a central 2-star hotel perfect for any girls’ looking to party on a budget.
If location is your first port of call, you can’t beat the amazing Jurys Inn Southampton. This 3-star hotel is in a prime central location, surrounded by bars, clubs and restaurants, with views over one of the city’s most beautiful parks, East Park. Just a couple of minutes’ walk out of your door will get you to some cosy pubs and swanky bars, and the iconic Pop World Southampton is just 9-minutes’ away – what could be better for a girls’ night out than busting some shapes to some cheesy music before walking back to your bed with a pizza in hand? If you’re looking for some culture to mix into your hen weekend, staying at the Holiday Inn Southampton is ideal. Surrounded by some of the city’s most famous historical points, you get the perfect mix of glamour and history without compromising on location – you even get views out over the iconic River Test.
There’s nothing worse than arriving in the city and having to wander for miles trying to find your hotel, which is why the Ibis Budget Southampton is right across from the Southampton Central train station, meaning you and the girls can show up, drop off your bags and get straight on with experiencing this amazing city. If you’re more concerned about budget (and who doesn’t want to save some extra money to spend on cocktails), the Travelodge Southampton is going to be your best friend this weekend. You’re still only 10-minutes’ from the city centre, so you haven’t had to compromise on location and you and the girls’ won’t have to worry about how you’re going to get home at the end of the night. With plenty of bars en-route, you can have your own mini bar crawl before you hit the clubs. There’s even the bonus of some delicious takeaways right across the road so you can grab some post-alcohol treats to ward off the morning’s hangover. .
Since it’s your hen weekend, why not indulge in a bit of glitz and glamour to really celebrate by staying at the Hilton Ageas Bowl. This 4-star accommodation is the height of luxury, with an on-site gym, spa, bar and restaurant you’ve got everything you need to set you up for a day – and night – enjoying this amazing city. It is a little further out of the city centre, however you’re surrounded by the sheer beauty of Southampton’s countryside and right next to the world famous Ageas Bowl. Wherever you end up celebrating your weekend, you won’t be disappointed.
Almost all of our Southampton hotels are right in the heart of the city and give you walking access to all the amazing nightlife, shops and sights that the city has to offer. However if you choose to stay at the Hilton Ageas Bowl, you will be further out of the city which requires a taxi ride to get to. Don’t worry, though; a taxi will get you into the city in around 15-minutes’, so you won’t miss out on any of your weekend.
Absolutely – all of our Southampton hotels have reserved room allocation in them, so you won’t miss out on your top pick. Some weekends can fill up quicker than others so it’s always best to book as far in advance as possible, however our sales staff here at LNOF will always double check for you to make sure nothing clashes with your weekend.
This is one of the most important weekends of your life, so we’ve made sure that you and the girls are covered for absolutely everything, including any issues that may arise with your accommodation.
