Southampton Cruise Ships on the Docks - Book a B&B for your Pre-cruise stay in Southampton

A popular destination for both business and leisure stays, Southampton is one of the main ferry and cruise ship ports on the South Coast and home to a great choice of B&Bs in the city centre, close to cruise terminals and in surrounding leafy residential areas about a mile from the centre. You’ll find a particular cluster of B&B guesthouses just to the north west of the city centre around Southampton Common all within a 20 minute walk of city centre attractions, shops and business quarters. Discounts are usually available in B&Bs for long-stay contractors. The busy international port of Southampton welcomes many visitors from across Europe, and you’ll find many B&B Guest Houses will accept Euros and have multi-lingual owners.

Most Southampton B&B Guest Houses offer WiFi, either free or paid, perfect for keeping in touch whilst on the go. You will also find a plentiful choice of family friendly, family run B&Bs around the city with spacious family rooms and convenient free off road parking. Lookout for great ‘Cruise and Park’ deals in Southampton B&Bs, often cheaper than hotels. Many also offer transfer services on request. Other establishments are licensed and include cosy bars, with optional evening meals served on request. A warm welcome is always assured along with a hearty Full English breakfast and advice on best local restaurants, inns and attractions.

Family Friendly

The perfect friendly family base, B&Bs in Southampton are centrally situated within easy walking distance of top family attractions such as the SeaCity Museum with its Titanic exhibition. Whether you’re looking for a family friendly cruise stopover or searching for a family room close to universities and shopping hotspots like West Quay, a guest house is ideal with its relaxed atmosphere and central location. Room rates are always competitive, and modern facilities such as free high speed WiFi and digital TV come as standard in Southampton B&Bs.

B&B Pre-Cruise Stays

As well as attracting visitors on business or leisure in the city, Southampton is one of the UK’s major ports with hundreds of cruise ship departures per year. Accommodation providers often see an increase in booking enquiries and demand just prior to cruise departures. All cruise departure times are listed on the city's official port website. Friendly Southampton B&B Guest Houses are ideal for that pre-cruise stay, even if simply the night before. You can expect lots of helpful advice like packing an overnight bag for one night pre-cruise stays and storing the bulk of luggage in designated luggage storage areas in the B&B. You can also expect a range of extra services such as a transfer service to your cruise terminal or a station pick-up if you are arriving by rail. With the large number of pre-cruise stays booked, you will find an excellent choice of guest houses with onsite free parking featuring spacious parking bays. At least a limited number of long-stay cruise parking spaces are usually available.
