You could stay in Portsmouth - last year they ran a ferry from Gunwharf to the boat show every day. Worth checking it out as it might be good! There is a cheap holiday inn in gunwharf as well.

DO NOT stay in the roundabout hotel in Farham......... It has to be one of the worst hotels I have stayed in (in the westren world)

We had such a laugh taking the p**s out of the place

It look liked an X Knocking shop inside !!!

Farham on tthe other hand is lovley... I asume Jackeens could recomond a place to stay there... night life is ok too , and its 15 mins from southampton
