Overlooking the historic port in the heart of Southampton the Novotel is ideally positioned as a base to explore the city. The modern style of the venue matches the setting of the nearby hustle and bustle of city life.

Our Normandie suite is versatile in offering a space that suits different requirements, whether it is an intimate reception or a grand evening reception. Large windows surround the room for plenty of natural light, while delicate drapery adds a romantic, welcoming touch. With 3 wedding packages to choose from, we pride ourselves in creating a wedding day that suits our client’s vision and budget. From the ribbons adorning the chairs, to the scrumptious menus created by our passionate chef - We are here to make this an occasion our couples can treasure for years to come!

Couples planning their special day with us can take advantage of the preferential accommodation rates. A wonderful opportunity to spend time with loved ones before or after the celebrations. Our hotel also boasts a swimming pool, fitness room and sauna providing a perfect space for relaxation.

Set in the city centre the Novotel has limited but well thought out outdoor space. Our garden decking with arbour seating makes for a romantic backdrop for wedding photography. Especially nice during spring and summer when the flowers are in bloom!

We are licensed to accommodate onsite ceremonies meaning our couples can enjoy their entire day under one roof. We also welcome couples after their offsite ceremony, ready to begin their celebrations with a drinks reception in the hotel lobby.

Our Beautiful Wedding

We had our wedding here on the 24th August 2018 and couldn't of chosen a better venue! All the staff were friendly helpful and would do anything for us! All 3 rooms were done just how we requested it! I can not thank them enough! Brian is a very good toastmaster and was always busy making sure things were exactly how we wanted them, keeping me (the bride) calm and helping my guests get to there seats. Everyone was complimenting the food and the staff all day and evening! Thank You Novotel and its amazing staff for helping us pull off the best and biggest day of our lives!

Perfect Wedding Day

We had our wedding here on 18th August & we had the most amazing day ever. From start to finish the staff could not do enough for us & I am so happy we chose this venue for our wedding. The food was lovely & the rooms (ceremony, meal & evening) looked amazing & we could not of asked for more.
We also stayed at the hotel the night before & night of the wedding along with family & friends & everyone enjoyed their stay.

Absolutely fantastic!!!!

We had our wedding reception here on 26th May 2018. The venue was incredible from start to finish. Viktoria the events manager was amazing, everything was planned exactly how we wanted it. Brian the toastmaster was fantastic in ensuring the day ran smoothly. Food was amazing, we had over 100 guests for a sit down meal and everyone was rented to quickly. Food was hot and the reception room was decorated beautifully. We had over 150 evening guests, the disco was brilliant, buffet food was amazing. The Novotel really made our day perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better venue. Thank you so much Novotel for making our day truly spectacular. It really was the best day of our lives.

Fantastic day.

We got married here in October.
The staff were so good and kind. Special thanks to viktoria and Brian. Nothing was too much trouble.
The ceremony room was set out lovely and so many guests complimented the food.
It's well worth going to their wedding fair if you can. We found wonderful magician and photographer for the day.
Our day went perfectly and Brian keeps you calm and runs around everywhere making sure all is going as planned.
Viktoria will make herself available for any questions leading up to the day.
Loved every minute. All staff so good.
