Modern hotel, easy to find. Friendly reception received by staff. Quick check in and free parking. About 7 mins drive from Winchester City Centre. No swimming pool (thanks to Winchester Council).[More] Rooms are spacious and well equipped. The bar area is quite basic and whilst comfortable has no atmosphere. Bar food is quite good but we were disappointed with the a la carte dinner. Expensive for the size of the portion, crispy bacon was black - even the waitress couldn't recognise it and the lobster risotto was lacking lobster and cheese! We did mention these issues at the time but no discount was offered. Apart from the dinner, the hotel is comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.[Less]
Nice new hotel
First time stay at this Holiday Inn, looks great from the outside and the lobby area is very impressive. Room was modern and clean and the heating and air con worked fine
For a new hotel I was[More] surprised to find the shower thermostat not working properly, and the towel shelf coming away from the wall, must have been the same bish bash bosh contractors that have recently refurbished Wakefield. And which giant decided on the height of the wash basin?
A big gripe for me is that the bedroom windows don't open, it made for a very stuffy night.
Had drinks in the bar around 11pm, service was indifferent despite there being four staff milling around, spent the time looking at a load of dirty glasses that none of them wanted to deal with.
Breakfast was good, front desk staff were excellent. Overall a good stay let down by a couple of bedroom niggles and poor bar service.[Less]
Comfortable and clean, the room heating air conditioning was good and kept the room warm but comfortable temperature
the public areas are airy and have a calm and clean ambience
The food is good[More] quality but a little limited in variety
My only real gripe is the slow and outdated tv channel selection where you have to go through several screens to get to choose a tv channel
Parking is easy and ample for all guests[Less]
Great place to stay
By 2015 traveller
This hotel was conveniently placed for only a short drive to the marina. The staff were attentive, and everything went really well. I've added this one to my favourites list, for use next time I am[More] in the area.[Less]
Responsible parking and honest descriptions
The fact that the restaurant was being refurbished was not stated at booking.
Previous reviews had spoken about the parking and were correct. Customers park across lines taking up two bays and[More] no-one seems to do anything about it.
Overall a fair overnight stay but it would be fairer to say that I gave 3.5/5 not 4/5. Counting up /5 is misleading.[Less]
the staff was friendly and the rooms were really clean
i definitely be using this hotel again ,[Less]
