Working overseas for a Southampton-based company I had cause to make many stays in many Southampton hotels over many years but for no reason had I ever used the Holiday Inn. I had admired its location but just never stayed there. This month my wife and I had a two night stay for an odd combination of a funeral and some Christmas shopping.
We were very pleased with the welcome at reception, the views from the fifth floor room and the housekeeping service. we ate out with friends in town. In other Southampton city hotels I have often been troubled by noise from pubs, clubs and street revellers into the small hours. This is not the case with the Holiday Inn as it stands away from the hubbub of the city nightlife but all temptation is within easy walking distance. Great care must be taken when trying to cross the dual carriageway outside the hotel . There are no pedestrian crossings for some distance. Risk of an accident is greatly increased when returning from a night out with alcohol-impaired judgement. Yes the rooms are a little tired but not unacceptably so and I am sure that a refurbishment plan is under consideration. My only gripe is that the odd numbered rooms are directly above the hotel's air conditioning plant and there is a low industrial hum throughout the night, even through closed windows. We shall stay again and happily recommend the Holiday Inn
