Blessed with miles of superb beaches and a stunning coastline, Hampshire offers plenty of potential for visitors who have an affinity for water sports. You'll find a good number of sports available including kayaking, wake-boarding and sailing. However, if the weather turns against you or you're travelling with little ones and don't want to expose them to possible risks, a hotel with a pool can supply you with daily entertainment or help you keep on top of your fitness regime. There are many hotels with pools in Hampshire, giving you plenty to choose from.
Hotels with Pools in Hampshire
Many hotels with pools also tend to have spas, giving guests the opportunity to exercise and the surrender to some restorative and relaxing treatments. Two such hotels are the Grayshott Spa in Hindhead, and the Solent Hotel and Spa in Fareham. These tend to be favoured by couples looking to steal some time away together, rather than families with children.
Family-Friendly Hotels with Pools
However, if you are travelling with kids and want to find a family-friendly hotel with a pool, then the Holiday Inn Farnborough and the Holiday Inn Fareham are worth a look. Both these hotels have excellent pools; perfect for a rainy day or introducing younger guests to the fundamentals of swimming. In addition, each of these hotels runs a 'Kids Stay and Eat Free' policy. This means that children under 18 eat free if they're part of a group sharing a family room, and those under 13 can eat free from the children's menu when accompanied by a full-paying adult. Not only do you have access to a great pool, but there's also the potential to save money on things like meal times too!
Water Parks in Hampshire
For those who want to keep up the water-based fun, even beyond their hotel, there is a good selection of water parks in Hampshire including the New Forest Water Park, and Splashdown near Poole. Burley Manor hotel is well placed for access to the National Forest Water Park, which offers kayaking, wake-boarding and an incredible, inflatable, water-based assault course.
Booking a Hampshire hotel with a pool gives you greater control over how you spend your downtime, without having to worry about what the weather's doing outside.
