Southampton Novotel Hotel

Welcome to Baby Squids Southampton


Our Southampton baby swimming classes are run from a lovely family friendly pool at Novotel Southampton Hotel. It is located in the centre of Southampton, right next to West Quay.  It can easily be accessed from the M27, so ideal for customers from Eastleigh, Romsey and Chandlers Ford.

Classes are held in a fabulous hotel pool that is kept at around 30-31C, hence this pool is suitable for children aged 3 months plus. There’s room around the pool for spectators (we know how much the grandparents love to watch) and the hotel has a separate area with toys and soft cushions, if you need to feed your child after the lesson. You can use the hotel car park; pay and display is applicable.

Our Instructors

All of our teachers understand young children and have a huge amount of experience supporting a variety of abilities. Each of them specialise in the baby, toddler and pre-schooler age groups. Our swimming teachers are the main reason so many of our Squidlets come back term after term.

Emma Dawson Southampton swimming teacher

Emma loved taking her daughter Alissa swimming with us so much that she had to retrain as a swimming teacher. Emma absolutely loves showing parents how to have fun in the water with their children and developing their water skills.

Southampton Swimming Teacher Lauren

Lauren is a mum of 2 young children and loves watching that magical bond between parent and baby grow in the water while at the same time learning an amazing life skill. Lauren is passionate that the time in the water is fun and enjoyable as well as educational.

Our Southampton Novotel Hotel Pool

We love teaching at the Novotel Southampton Hotel because it’s a lovely light pool, surrounded by glass, a really nice pool to teach kids to swim. Added bonus is its near John Lewis and the High Street for some post swim shopping and refreshments!
