South England Holiday Reviews

Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

Whether you're looking for a busy break, shopping and sightseeing in one of the region's popular cities, or a relaxing getaway in the country wining, dining and unwinding, then our excellent hotels in South England will have something to offer you. As diverse as South England is, you could easily find yourself at a historic site on the mystical Salisbury Plains, boutique shopping in trendy Guildford, or sunning yourself on the South coast.

Treat yourself on one of our excellent value two night dinner deal packages or a stay with afternoon tea included for that extra bit of indulgence. Take the kids with you and make the most of our South England hotels great location close by to Chessington World of Adventures and Thorpe Park, or the outdoor playground that is the New Forest.

  • Our Windsor hotels are, understandably, amongst our most popular for family breaks; enjoy the brilliant fun of LEGOLAND Windsor or the historic delights at pretty Windsor Castle.
  • For culture and history however, do check out our wonderful hotels in Oxford - not only are the world-famous Oxford University buildings well worth a visit, but a number of charming museums and markets make this one of the region's premier short break destinations.
  • The vibrant port cities of Portsmouth and Southampton should also make your shortlist - offering the fine dining, exciting nightlife and superb shopping you'd expect from bustling cities, both are also steeped in fascinating maritime history.
  • For a quieter break by the sea, our hotels in Bournemouth are very hard to beat - enjoy a traditional cream tea, rest easy on the 7 miles of sandy beaches or head for a walk in the gorgeous Dorset countryside or along the nearby Jurassic Coast.


With a wealth of things to see and do, the region is the perfect choice for a short break - check out our range of hotels in South England in the list below. Alternatively, explore more UK weekend breaks.

A weekend in Oxford

Stay Date: 29/07/16, a customer aged 45-64 from Bristol who stayed at 4* Oxford Spires Hotel (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Oxford wrote this review.

Hotel was being refurbished so it was difficult to find our way around. Restaurant lacked atmosphere in the evening and the service was slow. There was a lack of transparency in the final bill which See More  Read more information turned out to have additional items which should not have been charged. The room was pleasant and a good size. The location is a little walk from town (with an option to go along the riverbank) buthas a country feel, surrounded by green.   Collapse  Hide

Nightmare hotel

Hotel being refurbished - reception moved rooms only accessible via 400 metre walk. Very few staff speak or understand English. Chamberlain entered room to clean at 8 am. Went to breakfast on See More  Read more information return had to walk through corridor with stripped wet wallpaper. Complained extra items on bill wavered by manager. Dirty socks left in bathroom by previous guest! Wonder if room had beencleaned. Definitely not the place to go if you want rest and relaxation. Only redeeming feature was waitress and food at dinner. Staff should be trained in discreet quiet service. Would never visit again.   Collapse  Hide

Great day out in Oxford

We caught a bus into town; walked around. We got our bearings for the next day. Returned to the hotel by bus - public services are essential & most useful - taxis are expensive!

Lovely Weekend in Oxford

Stay Date: 07/10/16, a customer aged 45-64 from Weymouth who stayed at 4* Oxford Spires Hotel (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Oxford wrote this review.

In my opinion, The Oxford Spires Fours Pillars Hotel ticks all the boxes. In a semi-rural location, a short walk along the picturesque riverside takes you to the heart of the city within 10 minutes.

Time in Oxford

Stay Date: 07/10/16, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 4* Oxford Spires Hotel (2 Night Offer & 1st Night Dinner) in Oxford wrote this review.

Nice clean modern hotel. Advertised cocktail of week but didn't have any so that was a shame in big hotel like this. Reception staff very friendly and helpful with guidance. Ideal location within See More  Read more information walking distance to town. Didn't use any leisure facilities. 1st day of breakfast a bit manic as the poor man seemed to be in his own constantly trying to refill the hot buffet trays, saw lots ofpeople waiting which then caused a queue. Would visit hotel again but shame about lack of some shops in town which seem to have closed but hopefully they will be rebuilding more.   Collapse  Hide
