This page covers hotels on M27 motorway in Hampshire, England (Southampton – Portsmouth). I have tried to list the hotels with most convenient access to the motorway, typically at service stations (there is only one on the M27 – Rownhams services) or within a mile from a junction. The locations are ordered from west (Cadnam) to east (Portsmouth). All hotels are accessible from both directions (eastbound and westbound), unless stated otherwise.

Junction 1 (Cadnam, A31)
The M27 starts from the A31 road near Cadnam, about 10 miles west of Southampton in New Forest National Park. If you have time, this is a nice area to stay, although there are only a few hotels really close to the M27.
