“Good Holiday Inn - good option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Good location on the outskirts of the city -so good quiet country location. This appears to be quite a new hotel. The welcome was good and check-in was smooth. The room was spacious and well equipped. The bed was comfortable with a standard choice of pillows. Although the bathroom was a little on the small side it was perfectly adequate and it had a good strong shower -always a plus these days in hotels. Ate in the restaurant and although not a large choice on the menu the food was good and will eat again here. Breakfast was buffet style with a good choice of hot and cold foods. The staff on hand were really helpful at both dinner and breakfast. Good hotel!

I have stayed at Holiday Inn Winchester 3 times when visiting my daughter who lives in Winchester. The hotel is great value for money and has easy access when driving from the motorway. It is a little outside of the town centre so has great parking facilities and a feeling of space. The rooms are clean with air conditioning and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is fresh and modern with wifi however mobile phone reception is not so good. Maybe a room upstairs would have better network. We had a great night on the town and it was very easy to get a taxi back to the hotel. I will stay here again for sure.

Wow ChristineK, thank you!

It is great to see we have delivered consistently great service for you, which I have shared with the team!

We are working very hard with a local supplier and hope to have an update on the quality of the mobile signal shortly, which can be a little hot and miss.

Many thanks again

We stayed overnight on the way to Southampton. The hotel was very fresh and clean and the bedrooms smart and functional. We also dined in the restaurant and the quality of the food was very good, much better than we had expected. Service at reception was very good and efficient; service in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was excellent.

Very new hotel, very clean, big rooms, wifi good, plenty of car parking,nice bar. Restaurant is ok. No water in the rooms which is a bit annoying considering price in bar. Staff are very nice and helpful. Great option if on business or touring the area. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone.

Full marks for hotel staff who were all very friendly and helpfull.
Two issues:
1. Ordered bar meal - "Penne Carbonara" but it was swimming in milky sauce so not great.
2. No Vodaphone service in room or lobby which is significant if you are on a buisiness trip.
I regularly use business hotels but would not return here unless mobile phone situation resolved.

Thank you BGB123 for your comments after your recent stay.

I was very surprised and disappointed to read that your carbonara wasn't up to standard. It is one of our most popular dishes and very unusual to have negative feedback. I am working with our Head Chef and the team to ensure that the carbonara is delivered consistently to our high standards, so please accept my apologises.

We are working very hard to resolve the on-going issue with vodaphone and should be able to declare a full signal in the next few weeks, so watch this space.

Thank you again for your kind feedback

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn near Winchester with our 2 year old daughter as we were visiting the nearby Paultons Park. We booked the hotel as it was close to where we wanted to be and reasonably priced.

Upon arrival we were impressed by the spacious layout and lobby of this modern hotel, the receptionist was very helpful and friendly and first impressions very good. These first impressions lasted as the room was nice and clean, well appointed and a good size - perfect for the 3 of us. Linens are of a high quality and the hotel certainly has a chic, trendy quality feel to it - not bad for what I considered one step up from a holiday inn or travel lodge style chain - very impressed!

The hotel boasted a nice bar area and large furnished patio, we took advantage of the nice weather and sat outside for a drink before dinner while our daughter ran around the large grassed area having a great time. We chose to eat in the restaurant and again the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was of an excellent standard and our daughter well cared for.

After a good nights sleep in a perfectly cooled (A/C) and very quiet room (excellent noise insulation) we enjoyed the breakfast buffet before departure, all in all an excellent stay and a nice surprise regarding the quality of this hotel - we would certainly recommend a stay here.

The only possible downside is that this hotel is not really near anything, it is fairly isolated and certainly not 'in' Winchester, but if you are planning on eating and drinking at the hotel as we did, it is perfect, but this is a consideration if you are planning nights out in town or other activities in Winchester - I believe it would be a cab or car journey to get where you wanted to be.

Thank you bsugs for your very kind review.

We really do appreciate all your comments which are very helpful. We are two miles from Winchester city centre, but we do have a deal with a local taxi company making it fairly reasonable to make the journey.

Thank you again

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn, Winchester regularly for several months now, and it really is the best affordable hotel in the Winchester area. The staff are friendly and the rooms are large, clean and have everything you need. The food is always good and the restaurant regularly changes its menu. The location is very convenient for the motorway and within a reasonable distance of the centre of town. A few minor points mean it loses a point from being excellent: as a lone diner I often find the restaurant staff forget about me, so it can take a long time for my meal to appear. As a result I tend to go for room service or find other places to eat outside the hotel if I want a change. The other negative point is the gym. It is located in the centre of the hotel, which is 'H' shaped, so if you have a room close to the gym the pounding of the treadmills can be thunderous. Otherwise it's an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one not near the gym

Thank you oidhche for your lovely review!

I have noted your observations regarding service at dinner and spoken with the team. I hope you will see an improvement, but do come and let me know personally.

It is the first comment I have received regarding the gym, so will see what I can do for that.

It is great to hear from our regulars so thank you again
