A Flying With A Baby reader adds, “We stayed at the Holiday Inn Southampton. Booked it as a short break so got two days at Peppa Pig world and then one night stay.
It’s not a fancy hotel but there were two adults and a two year old in a family room and it was very comfortable, food was good and it had a swimming pool which we used in the evening.
The staff were brilliant, so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. It was my son’s birthday and when we went down for dinner they had put balloons and a Birthday card on our table and we’re just so nice to him the whole of our stay. I’d highly recommend and definitely stay there again.” For more information and latest prices see here.

The kids enjoyed a pizza, some sausages and mash and other dishes and us adults enjoyed a mixture of gastro pub style food. One of our company said they were the best halloumi chips he had ever had.
