Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff have been very friendly every time I have stayed at Holiday Inn Fareham - Caroline, Lily, Lucy and Grace have been particularly helpful any time I have stayed. The location is very handy and the rooms are always clean and comfortable - will definitely continue to stay here in the future!

Hotel's Favourite
I’ve just spent 3 months on business at this wonderful hotel. An unforgettable experience, for all the right reasons. The hotel has modern gym facilities (some equipment not functioning) with a pool and pleasant spa area (the jacuzzi is sometimes unavailable). Can’t complain though as I went 4 times a week. A wide range of breakfast options are available with good quality dinner choices, peri chicken was succulent heaven but the sea bass is definitely worth trying, if a bit pricey. The staff are probably the best I’ve encountered in the many, many years of working away in hotels. George the General Manager has got this spot on. Richard, the Front of House Manager were very welcoming and humorous, along with his staff, Sarah and Louise. At breakfast, Lucy was delightfully bubbly at such an early hour. At dinner, Caroline, Cerys, Lilly and their manager Grace made my evening wind down a delight as I quaffed on a glass of Pinot with my meal. Well done ladies, keep up the great work. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thank you.

I have stayed a few times at this hotel and always have a great experience. Facilities are clean/comfortable. The staff are always so accommodating and professional Lucy, Lily, Grace and Caroline in particular to name a few. They always greet you with a smile and at dinner often remember orders for the next evening adding that personal touch.

Very disappointing experience after a lovely evening at the Holiday Inn, Fareham. We had attended a family birthday party at the function room last Friday evening. We had a great night, lovely buffet and were impressed with the venue. We were considering using for sons up coming birthday. Sadly a week later we received a parking fine of £100 - we are gutted as this was a genuine oversight on our part. Neither my husband or I noticed any parking signs, although I am sure they are there. It was a foul evening and we were rushing to get in the building. Upon entering we did not see any sign-in machine in the entrance to the party venue or at the bar. No member of staff asked us to sign in or pointed out the machine, if there is one. Usually venues make it virtually impossible to accidentally get a fine like this and we would have been more than happy to pay if we had been aware that we needed to pay. Please be aware of this and don’t have your evening ruined by such an unfair and extortionate fine.

Excellent hotel, booked for a weekend to visit friends in the area. Our room was clean and well-presented. Staff were welcoming. Breakfast was superb with an endless choice. It was a busy hotel but didn't feel busy or crowded. Husband was impressed by the gym.

Matthew in the restaurant was excellent. The service was great and the care over checking ingredients for my daughter's allergies was amazing. 5 star service. The food was great and very tasty. Wine was a little expensive but it was a nice bottle tbh.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over Easter the room we was given wasn't very nice it was quite small had a strange smell and the bed wasn't a king bed so to small for myself and hubby, the carpet also looked tired worn and not that clean, l went back to reception and the lovely Stevie sorted us out another room with twin beds and gave us a complimentary drink each. The furniture in the room was very tired and dated but it was very clean it has a fridge, safe, iron nice long mirror and plenty of lighting. We booked breakfast for both nights and ate in the restaurant. Breakfast on our first morning wasn't very hot even though we was there early as we was going out, there is lots to choose from though, The other thing was every cup l picked up to make a cuppa for us had brown stains in them either the dishwasher isn't working properly or the cups where just getting rinsed and not washed properly. They have a kids eat free scheme going on, all very good but we noticed some family's particularly a couple had several children they was going up to the counter loads of times brining food back for the adults to eat as well. This company must be losing lots of money if this is going on. The food was okay a bit on the expensive side. Our first night at the hotel it was really quite and we got plenty of sleep, but that all went to pot on the second night, there was adults and children making a noise in the corridor and constantly banging doors from 1.30am this was going on well over 2 hours so not much sleep had all night. The staff are all really lovely at this hotel, all very helpful and friendly this goes a long way. A special mention to Stevie who we got to chat to quite a bit, and Lilly who served us at dinner. If we stayed again l would probably upgrade to a better room.

Took a room for the day as a base whilst waiting for our evening ferry in Portsmouth. Use of the swimming pool with the children a real bonus. Dinner in the restaurant was very easy, brilliant quick service, Lily was wonderful, very child friendly.
