Having come down from Yorkshire for a retirement do we were very surprised at the high standard of the Hotel Rooms and Food for the price we paid. We shall definitely stay with Holiday Inn again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Superb refurb
For me it's the location of this hotel that matters. That said, the quality of the rooms after the recent refurbishment is superb. Clean, fresh, good lighting and very convenient plugs for all the rechargers I need to carry.

I stayed at this hotel during Febuary and found the location ideal for my purpose. The staff and service is excellent. The staff are extremly friendly and more than willing to help -- you just have to ask e.g. I have a special diet and i asked the dining staff to accomodate this in the morning breakfast -- and they were brilliant.
Look forward to staying again.

I Stayed with the Holiday Inn Farnborough at the end of January this year, and never have I ever had such amazing service anywhere!! The Reception staff when I checked in were fast but very to detail I was recognised as and IHG rewards club member even though I am not at a high status at the moment - I was given a chocolate on check in for being an IHG member and that lifted my spirits after a long hard day at work.
The staff were lovely and friendly very welcoming and I genuinely felt like they were happy to have me. - The food in the hotel is of high standard and tasted like something you would expect coming from a 5* Restaurant. - The gym sauna and swimming pool were clean and very accessible the staff in there were lovely and genuine and I would really like to point out how in-bedded in helping you to every tiny detail that I even called down for room service at 4am and I was served within 30 minutes an amazing well presented sandwich and a cute little napkin swan. - obvious effort and time into making me feel special.
On Check out my name was remembered without having to look at the computer screen and they even knew to ask me how my 4 am room service was and if there was anything and I quote "they could improve on for next time" - now I was just stunned I had no idea what to respond to that as the stay was lovely but how passionate they were in improving to make a customers stay even more memorable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Albalal A lovely stay
Had a lovely stay during late December. The staff were top notch. The room was very comfortable and complimentary chocolate bars were a bonus. Many thanks to the reception and housekeeping teams, who were able to track down my phone charger, that I left! Food in the restaurant was delicious for both dinner and breakfast, with great service from the team. We did however find the conservatory area a little chilly at dinner, something that is easily rectified. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Staff actually seemed keen to provide a good service, instead of the usual tedium of many larger chain hotels. If I stay in the area again this place will be on the list of possibilities...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Elye Farnborough Stay
The hotel was nice enough, friendly staff at the reception desk and a lovely bar area with a Starbucks concession. The room was fine, the only problem was a fairly loud wedding reception being held at the hotel at the time as the guests all seemed to be congregating outside my room below after 12.00pm.
I slept well afterwards though and the rest of the stay was good without any other problems.
I did not have chance to check out the facilities on offer at the hotel as my stay was a short, overnight one.

The hotel was great, room was spacious & very comfortable. Only downside was the very noisy room above us, sounded like herd of elephants running around, not great at 5.30am!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Handles Very poor service
THis hotel I booked in October for a stya in late December for two children, two adults and two dogs. Being a platinum member I stay in Hol Inns 40 to 50 nights a year. This was the worst Hol Inn for booking srevice I have ever expected. On the day we travelled to hotel from 300 miles away the booking manager rang up and said we do not except dogs even though I had rang and confirmed in October. He then said we do not have your details for the children. When we arrived 5 hrs later the room was made up for one adult and they still did not have the childrens details in. There was no trollies to take all the bags and the receptionist had to get a painter to help us. The room was not the delux room promised. Two weeks later nobody has got back to us although a registered a formal complaint.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosemary1 Great place to meet up with family & friends
The Holiday Inn Farnborough was exactly what we needed to join up for a family gathering locally.. Clean comfortable & a great breakfast and reasonably priced. No complaints - staff were friendly, couldn't hear any traffic in fact the room was so dark and soundproof that we overslept! Some family members even had a swim before breakfast.

My wife and I booked this hotel for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year with our 2 kids (2.5 & 8 months). We got a special rate, so only paid about 30% of normal rate! but even at full rate the value was good.
Upon check in, the children received a fun pack each, and the adults got a chocolate bar each ( That was an IHG Elite perk I think), all the kids meals were free and excellent quality. The swimming pool was great and staff very friendly.
Breakfast was lovely, fresh and a great selection, then upon check out, the children got a snack box for the journey!
Even though I stay with holiday inn a lot on business , which I am always happy with, this was a different experience, but one I would highly recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by catnap overall experience
second visit to this hotel , as rated above ,
not happy about long ,long wait ay reception desk ,which seemed to be undermanned all weekend ,not good start ,for anyone . although room was adequate dust build up behind cupboards on light switches ,there for sometime.
prices of drinks at bars ,seem to be plucked out of the air?? certainly with your buying powers ,making astronomical prophets here .Have you never thought of reducing them to sell more.if not at wedding do would have gone elsewhere for drinks/ food. in general could do with a lick and a promise ,not just touched up here and there to suffice,temporary fixes become permanent thing .
hope you will find this as constructive ,critisism and work to
rectify faults.also look at staffing levels .

I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and 2 grandchildren ages 7 & 8 . We enjoyed out stay very much the whole service was excellent the pool & pool manager (life-guard) was attentive & helpful especially with young children. Every member of staff we met were friendly efficient & happy to help.
The only thing that could be improved on is the menu it was very limited & expensive as was the bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gordon0826 Business Hotel
Well positioned hotel suited for all business needs. Set out is like a 'rabbit warren' but is functional and comfortable.
Meals are available in the bar and restaurant, both are at a good standard. Room service charges are a bit high.
Breakfast meal has a good variety and you have the ability to order eggs to your liking.
Bar prices are a bit stiff, reducing the opportunity to sell more.
Staff are all knowledgeable and happy to help including recommend and supply maps for local restaurants not only theirs.
The wifi is not free, unlike other hotels in the area. Which is a pain when needing to work in the room.
Conference room facilities are good, except for power points of laptops at tables.

Food for Room service was cold and orders were wrong. Room is comfy, but Internet is poor.
I hung up breakfast in bed sign at 2230 but nobody collected it so no breakfast delivered the following day.
Not a brilliant service overall, with some staff struggling to understand English.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FabulousMsEmma Average hotel for the area
I usually stay in another 4* hotel when staying in this area on business. But chose to stay here for a change.
By comparison, this hotel is more of a bog standard, general run of the mill hotel.
The staff where knowledgeable and courteous, and the bed was very comfortable. The room had electric heaters in, which wasnt the best, as i was concious to leave it on overnight and woke up very cold.
Room service was swift and acceptable, and the facilities in the room was as advertised.
Upon check out, i paid my bill, didnt look at is, and later that day was contacted to say they'd not taken enough off my card and could they debit the remaining amount. The receptionist was in training, and maybe i should have checked the amount, but i found this very frustrating.
I stay in Holiday Inn's most of my working week, and to date this is probably not as good as others i've stayed in, purely down to the after service and the fact the room wasnt heated.
There are better hotels within a 5 mile radius for the rate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DKST Pleasant stay
I was very comfortable in the room, comfortable bed, bit difficult to distinguish any difference between soft and firm pillows but not really a big issue. Shower flow a bit feeble but otherwise very good facilities in bathroom, which was clean and pleasant.Best thing about the room, which I was not expecting, was a little fridge (an empty minibar) and took up offer of small jug of fresh milk, which lasted me the 2 nights I was there and made settling down to watch TV with a proper tea or coffee so much nicer.
The staff on reception were excellent as were the waitresses in the dining room, all professional and courteous. I had a really delicious meal in the dining room with good service. Next evening had sandwiches by room service, the quality and presentation again was excellent but spoiled a bit by having to call twice and wait an hour for them to arrive - bit long when you're really hungry!
Noisy party downstairs on Saturday evening but overall very happy and would return and recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roni31 Friendly staff, nice hotel!
Our first experience of a Holiday Inn, and we were pleasantly surprised by the nice welcoming reception, bar area and clean comfortable rooms. The staff were friendly and there was the added bonus of mars bars in the room! Unfortunately however we were rudely awaken at 1:30am by the fire alarm going off. I was in a fit of panic imagining trying to get my children out of the burning building, and petrified of being left alone whilst my husband went to investigate. The alarm went off after 5 minutes, but then began to sound again and again!! It turned out to be a false alarm and had been set off by another guest breaking a break glass, we found out because my husband went to reception to make enquiries. I however could then not settle for the rest of the evening. A note of apology was left under our room door, but then was no mention of it by staff when we checked out. I felt as a gesture of good will we should have been offered a verbal apology at the very least and/or had some form of compensation for our unsettled night. As it is now all I will remember from my stay at Holiday Inn Farnborough is being woken by the fire alarm! :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pragyna28 Overall a very good experience--Amazing palce to stay
I was there for a about 13 days and it has been really very comfortable and good experience at HHI. The staff was courteous and helpful. My requirements were take care of and the service was up to the mark. The breakfast was really good and the menu also has a good variety. The Tuesday dinner buffet is an added advantage. The wifi conectivity is also great.The gym and the pool are is worth it too.
All in all a very good experience. Keep it up. Hope you continue to render these services in the smae manner.
