We were so impressed with our stay!! My husband and I attended a wedding in the area and stayed at the hotel with our 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter. The room was large with a double bed, travel cot and put me up bed. The hotel was lovely and our kids found it a complete adventure! Thanks to the hotel cattering for the kids in the room and at breakfast it made our stay stress free. The hotel was quiet despite being fully booked which allowed the children to settle quickly. We were advised initially that we would not be able to check in prior to the 3pm check in, but when we arrived early on the off chance we were pleasantly surprised we could check in around 2pm! Staff were helpful and polite.

Room Tip: Ask the staff lots of questions as they will be helpful and advise you well.

We stayed in this hotel on the bank holiday weekend. The stay was really good. The family room was very spacious and we had two double beds. My children loved it. Breakfast was good quality. It was very good value for money. The only negative is that it was very hot during the night and the air conditioning was too noisy to keep it on.

I paid £71 for me and my partner to stay in a standard double room. On arrival we were met by a polite staff member who checked us in promptly and explained times of dinner, breakfast etc. The room was very clean, tidy and i liked the decor. The only grumble i have is not having breakfast included for this price but everything else was perfect.

Dear Munchkin871

Thank you for your comments on your recent stay. We always have room only, breakfast included or even better value a dinner bed and breakfast rate available to all guests to book.

Kind regards

Good Points, I love the area so i will be happy, however while its a lovely country location you need to be aware its a good ten minute drive to Winchester and location has no other shops on site or close by. Food excellent, prices as stated by others a little pricey as are the drinks but our meals were of a very good standard and staff at bar and in general fine.you need to book for dining as it can get busy,though you can eat in the bar and be prepared to relax for around half hour for your meal. Rooms good standard, disapointment was bed,mattress very tired and not worthy of rest of hotel but may have been unlucky. On a deal its worth a stay for sure.

Room Tip: Get a deal for value.

Dear JohnGEssex,

.Thanks for your comments on your recent stay. I am glad you enjoyed your food and indeed our restaurant can get very busy so booking a table is advisable.
If you let me know which room you stayed in I would like to investigate further your comments on our mattresses. They are only 2 years old we have a rigorous bed turning policy etc that should ensure the life of the mattress

Thanks again for your review

Generally we have found the Holiday Inns across the world are reliable. This one is well up to the highest of standards in most respects. We found the staff were helpful and that the food was of a good standard.

It should be noted that the hotel is located some distance out of Winchester but the parking is free and there is plenty of it. Being close to the M3 access to the south coast and the ports make it an ideal base or predeparture stopover. There are some tourist sites close by which makes it a suitable hotel to take children. We have not tried it but they do offer a park and cruise arrangement which includes the taxi to Southampton but not the return. We suspect the package is competitive with the ABP valet service.

We stayed here a year ago and when it had only recently opened. On our second visit there were a couple of minor maintenance issues that we reported (flush button not working for low volume and the pop up plug in the basin needed to be adjusted). We also noticed that there weeds were growing apace in the grounds but witht the wet weather this seems to be happening everywhere.
