“one night stay”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

The room smelt of dogs
The food available at the services was a very bad experience there was no interest in us a customers & 70% my Fish & Chip meal was not edible.
I did complain in the morning before we left, the service site duty manager did not want to speak to me & referred me to the place where the meal was purchased.
There were no serviettes the knives & forks were not clean, there was no vinegar available to add to the fish & chips

However the persons English was frankly too poor to even understand some of my complaint. I appreciate this has no bearing on your hotel but I would never eat in that place again and you and suggest if that is the best they can do it is appalling due to lack of customer interest & Training etc.
You may be able to influence some changes but until the management take customer service as an integral part of running a food service frankly then the best I can describe the service experience is a joke

Coming from Portsmouth everyday there is no other way of getting to this Days Inn other than the motorway which took an hour and a half irritating as of course no accommodation at Winchester North. We probably will not stay here any longer than one night stay.Most other Days Inn offer money off for breakfast at Moto Service Stations this would have helped.

1. Information did not state that access was ONLY from the southbound carriageway. (Other similar situations have local cross motorway access.) Thus we arrived with negative attitude to Days Inn)
2. The road noise was worse than usual for a motorway stopover.
2. Lavatory cistern did not work properly
3. chipped bath

I really enjoyed my 2 day stay at the days inn. the staff were exceptional and very accomodating . The proximity of the days Inn to the m3 , Southampton and Winchester was ideal. I would definatly stay in the Hotel if I was in the area again.

We checked in and ten mins later checked out. There was a dreadful stink in the room and the receptionist said it was dog pee - and said it was the same in his room! Shortly after we found the toilet was blocked and unusable. When we checked out the receptionist marked the room as out of order - so why were we given it in the first place? The receptionist tried to book us in another Days Inn hotel but that receptionist would not answer the phone!

I would not dream of booking into a Days Inn hotel again

We stayed here the night before an obstacle course competition nearby. We wanted somewhere cheap but decent enough for a good night's sleep. Paid £100 for a room that fits 4 adults (1 queen, 2 single). In summary, the room is good enough for what we wanted it to be.

Pros:
1. Good sized room with TV.
2. No problems with showers and hot water.
3. Comfortable pillows and beds.
4. It was quiet when we were there.
5. Cheap Breakfast at the Services - only £3.99 or £4.99 for full English breakfast.
6. Overall good value I feel.

Cons:
1. It's in a services southbound on the M3, so, if you're staying for a couple of days and want a night out in Winchester, you need to travel north up to Junction 8 then back down again. I didn't have to do this so can't tell you how long it takes, but thought I should mention it. Looks far on the map.

So basically if you're stopping by for a rest before continuing your journey south - fine. If you're staying one night to go somewhere nearby - fine. But not an ideal place I think to use as a base to explore the area.

Booked to stay here not realising how far this place was from Winchester. A taxi back after 11pm cost £80 as you have to drive up to a further exit to then come back down the south road to get to the junction turn off. Nightmare!
