A fairly standard two night business stay at Fareham. The Holiday Inn has loads of facilities to make a couple of evenings away from home as comfortable as possible. The rooms are clean and tidy. I did find the lack of power sockets, especially at the bedside tables a bit of a bind especially with the need to charge phones etc. I ended up having to use the table lamp socket on the desk.

As a mid-range hotel it meets most criteria:
The chef's do try hard and the tasting table in the evening is a great touch.
The Internet service is very poor and 'out of date' with current trends. Where customers need to pay for faster speeds is out-dated, these faster services should be included in the room rate.
The quality of fresh fruit with the breakfast is average and mostly tasteless.
The front desk service is average with mostly one person on the desk and a queue of customers wanting to settle their bills. Surely this can be improved on at peak hours?
It can take a long time in the evenings to get served at the bar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dids417 Very good hotel with excellent staff
The staff throughout the hotel were very helpful and charming. The restaurant manager, Alex, in particular was attentive, overhearing that my wife wanted porridge he made sure that she got it, and he worked particularly hard, especially when everyone turned up for breakfast at the same time! The rooms seem to have very good sound-proofing and the curtains let in very little light which made it easy to sleep. As usual with a Holiday Inn forgetting something like a face cloth was no disaster as one was quickly provided. Bed was perhaps a lttle too bouncy if someone turns over a lot in the night and one is not sleeping on one's own. Cleanliness everywhere very good. Don't know why everyone who stays in a Holiday Inn does not join the Rewards Club - always like the little extras!
