The Pig In The Wall Southampton

“Traditional English boutique hotel in central Southampton. Vintage style rooms with luxurious bathrooms and fantastic breakfasts. Ideal for a city break filled with shopping and history in the city from where Titanic set sail, or perfect for a pre or post cruise stopover.”

“A stunning boutique hotel in the centre of Southampton, in fact it is part of the historic mediaeval city walls. The magic that is on display at the other properties in the Pig group has also been worked here. The interiors are gorgeous, filled with one of characterful pieces in the usual shabby chic fashion - the empasis is most definitely on creature comforts and a welcoming aura. All twelve bedrooms are excellently kitted out with larder fridges and monsoon showers, and the larger ones have roll top baths too. For dining there is an all day deli bar, where the delicious breakfast is also served, which provides light bites and a wide range of wines by the glass. If you want something a little more subsantial, The Pig landrover will take you up to their sister establishment at Brockenhurst for dinner (and bring you back). As ever with a Pig, you can expect meticulous attention to detail and superb service as standard. It is the only place to stay if you're planning a city break to Southampton, or simply plan to stay either pre or post cruise.”

The Pig in the wall hotel, Hampshire: Review

Gorgeous. The front door opens into the Edwardian country style parlour, with armchairs, sofas and pine dining table, and instead of a reception desk, there’s an inviting, well stocked deli bar for all day grazing, coffees, teas, wines by the glass and spirits.

B&B and beyond

Occupying a Georgian townhouse set within Southampton's medieval city walls, The Pig in the Wall successfully marries the homely comforts of a B&B with the quality and standards of an upmarket hotel.

Our favourite affordable hotels

Bedrooms (just 12) are compact, bathrooms generous. Bar snacks by the fire include strips of pork crackling and unctuous slices of sausage roll.
