Wherever you stay, whether it's the heart of vibrant Southampton or the picturesque countryside of the South Downs National Park or the New Forest National Park, you'll normally benefit from WiFi access. Many two star hotels offer this service in all rooms and public areas, and some also provide high-speed internet connections along with printing and faxing facilities, making them ideal for business travellers.
See the beautiful Medieval Merchant's House, a refurbished timber-framed house that dates back more than 700 years and is a Grade I-Listed landmark. Southampton is also home to the Guildhall, a major live entertainment venue organising numerous high-profile concerts throughout the year in a building that was once a town hall. Learn more about the city's maritime heritage by visiting the SeaCity Museum, see the historic Town Walls, then visit the Solent Sky plane and aviation exhibition.
Southampton is also home to the acclaimed University of Southampton, which celebrated its 60th anniversary as a fully-fledged university in 2012 and is one of Britain's leading research institutions. If you're visiting friends or family studying here, you can find numerous value-for-money 2-star hotels close by.
See the remarkable 170-metre-tall Spinnaker Tower, then visit the Mary Rose Museum where you can see a preserved shipwreck that sank near Portsmouth during Tudor times and was miraculously recovered and preserved for posterity a few years ago.
For a deep insight into local maritime history, visit HMNB Portsmouth, an enormous harbour that is still used by the British Royal Navy and includes one of the world's first dry docks. Here, you can observe numerous historic ships, one of the most notable of which is HMS Victory, used by Lord Nelson during the Napoleonic Wars.
The Mary Rose Museum is dedicated to the Mary Rose ship, which was built in the 16th century but sunk in the summer of 1545. This incredible exhibition venue would never have existed were it not for the sterling efforts of the Mary Rose Trust to retrieve and restore the Mary Rose ship from deep beneath The Solent. The trust managed to save it in 1982 and towered into to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where it was carefully stored and conserved before becoming the centrepiece of the new museum.
If you want some extra time to explore Hampshire's attractions without having to cart heavy suitcases around with you, then choose a two star hotel with left luggage facilities. Many establishments are also happy to arrange early check-ins or late check-outs to ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible.
Explore the scenic New Forest National Park and observe its families of donkeys, ponies and deer. You could also visit the historic city of Winchester, which has a rather fine medieval cathedral and served as the capital of England during Saxon times.
