Very short weekend break away. Found hotel easily with tru sty sat nav but was well signposted.
Modern building and I would imagine not opened all that long ago. Excellent free parking. Very spacious reception area. Check in was fast, efficient and friendly. Room was again very modern and of a good size. Beds comfortable and room clean. View over car park but no noise heard. Small but adequate bathroom complete with neon green glow lights so you don't disturb anyone in the middle of the night by putting the lights on.
Tea and coffee available. Along with hairdryer, iron and board, and of course small shampoo and shower gel also provided.
My only slight grumble was the air condiitioning vent pumped in air from outside where the smokers stood outside. This did come into our room (235) when the A/c was on. Move the smokers and you won't have a problem!
Dined in restuarant. Service excellent and very friendly staff. It was busy with a wedding and coach party in but they managed to keep up the standard of service. Food was of good quality and very pleasant with a variety of options. Personally I found the A La Carte menu to be a little pricey as was the wine but I guess this is to be expected.
Breakfast on both days was varied and well presented. Taste and choice were good. Could be a little hotter from the cooked buffet.
Treated ourselves to afternoon tea. Well worth treating yourselves. You will not leave hungry!
Well done Holiday Inn. All in all a great hotel and all the better for being fairly new. Good location for Winchester and surrounding areas but you would need a car or transport.
If travelling to Winchester please use the South Park and Ride. Again newly built and was fantastic value with many parking spaces, toilet facilities and regular shuttle bus to a convenient town centre drop off. Takes the hassle out of trying to find a parking space in town.
