Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by creeses1999 Clean but not really as described
We picked this hotel because it had the spa facility and after a game of hockey we hoped to relax in the jacuzzi. Unfortunately it wasn't working. We also paid the extra to upgrade to an executive room thinking we would get a room like the one in the picture but instead we could a sofa which we didn't need. So for the 2 reasons we chose this hotel over the others in the area we were let down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tadfaster Dealt with missing reservation error very well
I arrived to check in in the evening to find my reservation was not there and the hotel was full. We could not work out where myservation had got to as the hotel had no record of the booking by my company but the front desk staff were very good and fortunately managed to find me a single room for the first night and made things very easy by moving the reservation to another larger room as planed for my second night and also moving my my luggage for me during the day whilst I was out. All very helpful in the end. A nice hotel with friendly staff. Bar service on teh first evening was a bit slow but other than that a good stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BigShootBob Hard to book, old facility, slow internet, great staff
Nothing more to say. Making a booking with this hotel was a real nightmare. The facility was old. Internet worked as slow as I never have experienced before. Only plus is a very supportive and kind staff, but with this location difficult to count on them to make a miracle.

The hotel itself was fine, parking at the front of the hotel was an issue as there were a couple of parties on but lots of parking at the rear. The bar was ok, bar staff were pleasant. Room was miles along corridors, down side was we were put in a room with an interconnecting door to the next. No problem there! Apart from the dog in the room next to us, we could hear it sniffing at the door which wasn't great. Fortunately none of us are allergic to animals but we've never had this in any of the holiday inns before. The downside was at 7am when the owners decided to go for breakfast so doggy started crying at the door. Not good when all you want is a good nights sleep. Breakfast good but expensive. The lady on reception didn't ask how our stay was or even said goodbye. Price was good, not sure it was the best. Good job I love holiday inn so much!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordy A great place to come back to after a busy day
This was our first time staying at a Holiday Inn and we were more than pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. On arrival, the staff were extremely attentive, our room was spotlessly clean and the room was very comfortable; we all slept well. We enjoyed a fantastic meal at the hotel on the Saturday evening and the staff were extremely attentive, especially to our son who just wanted to draw with the crayons kindly provided. Next morning, the choice at breakfast was amazing and we certainly ate more than we should have before hitting the road. For our weekend break, we certainly made the right choice and this was a great place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convent75 What a great week-end
We had the best time here. This was my second visit and the first experience was hard to beat. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the staff were beyond helpful and kind. We very much enjoyed the spa facilities and the only little negative was that the pool/jacuzzi areas could do with a little TLC. But all in all, we would happily visit again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ReginaldX Clean hotel, excellent night's sleep, brilliant staff!
I must admit to booking this location based primarily on price. My room was spacious, really quiet and welcoming and loads of free car parking was available at the rear of the hotel. The layout of the place and general "vibe" was excellent. Really nice welcoming bar area, good breakfast and genuinely helpful staff. Definitely recommended.

As a platinum member I stay with holiday inn a lot. The farnborough hotel is really poor. Outdated rooms, uncomfortable beds, no lift, chipped paint and ripped wallpaper, the list goes on. This hotel is several levels below normal holiday inn standard.

I had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Farnborough. The atmosphere was good, rooms were good, and the staff exceptional. Many great staff that are always friendly, especially Mirka, Eleanore, Jao, Gatis, and Vici.
I enjoyed the atmosphere. Especially the children that were excited about going to Legoland.
Breakfasts are good, BUT overall food quality and taste is fair at best..

I have enjoyed my many stays thus far at the Holiday Inn at Farnborough. The rooms have been good and a good atmosphere at the hotel. BUT the staff have been exceptional. Gatis who works in the bar area is always friendly, jovial, and always very professional.
My one complaint is that the food is expensive and not very good. I travel a lot and eat at many hotels. The food here is much below average quality.

The previous night at a different IHG hotel we had a great experience, this hotel gave a totally different impression from the moment I approached reception and waited for the guy on reception to eventually tell his friend on the phone he had to go as a guest was waiting and he would call them back in two minutes. We booked a twin, and of course found ourselves in a double, and when I asked for a change ( again waiting for the same receptionist to come off the phone ) found ourselves after a hike into the far corner of the hotel in a basic room that had ( locked) patio doors and allowed the sweet sound of traffic in all night. I should have taken the complementary kitkat that was in the double room to fortify myself for the night.
to be fair on checking out a different receptionist was on duty and they offered a swifter more friendly service

The room was fine, but the toilet needed a right good clean. The pan was clean only to the start of the U bend but if you looked into the pan as you walked into the toilet you could see where the cleaning had stopped. I was never told about the swimming pool or sauna/leisure area even although I arrived about 3.00pm.
Food was excellent just a pity about the cleaning and not being informed of the leisure facilities, if that had been ok my rating would have went up to good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Moby79 Stay at Farnborough
I checked into the hotel 27/09/13 to 29/09/13 and was greeted by a polite receptionist whom gave recognition to being a PCR member.
I did pre-booked an upgrade and late check out from the two I only received a late check out for 2 PM which was excellent for a late check out. Free on site parking also.
I was not happy to be informed I have been upgraded to a Executive Suite and upon entering the room it was a family room for 3-4 people and a cot set up. I contacted the reception by phone to be informed it is definitely a Executive room, this was obviously not the case and a simple explanation that this type of room is not available would do than lie. I have previously stayed in an Executive Suite to know.
Main Room itself was clean and plenty of complimentary toiletries available and usual water and chocolates for being a PCR member. Bathroom had hairs on the floor and bath itself was worn making it look dirty and few red stains on the shower curtain.
No fuss was created as the hotel seemed very busy due to a wedding and doubt very much an exchange was available.
location is good as by main road but slightly set back so no noise from the outside, although noise defiantly from the corridors or rooms above which did leave me restless on both nights.
Not sure what to make of the hotel as yet, although staff polite but lack of service to what I required and noise from above did not help.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fiona59 Friendly hotel close to M3
I was looking for a hotel fairly close to Aldershot and the M3 that would accept dogs.
I stayed here with my daughter and the dog!
Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
Because of the dog we had room service which again was excellent.
The only negative was that we found the room a bit too warm even with the thermostat down to 16 degrees.
Plenty of car parking available,
I didn't have the opportunity to try the swimming pool or gym.
Would certainly use again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Becky18 Good 3 night stay
Stayed over from Thursday night til Saturday due to work committments. The food was good but service was poor on Thursday night. We had to wait an hour to be serviced our main and then a further hour to be served our dessert. Good job we werent planning to go on anywhere else in the evening.
Room was ok but the room above me was noisy - kept hearing creaky floor boards when the occupant moved around the room so this kept waking me up.

clean room, lovely hotel, nice staff and great location, however unable to sleep until after 1 am as loud music in function room below our bedroom. many unhappy guests complaining, but music not turned down to reasonable level. could not hear television as the music was so loud. Very busy breakfast and ran out of butter, bread, eggs, pancake maker broken, though when asked staff did fetch items. food became cold whilst waiting for other items. had to ask three times for coffee! lovely hotel and would stay here again, but would check what functions are on and would request a room at the other end of the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Panda100 A lovely weekend
We had a lovely weekend. Our stay was due to a wedding & I wasn't local to Farnborough. The affordability of the hotel meant that my children & I could stay somewhere so nice. The kids stayed & ate free! The room was really nice. The staff were all lovely & very helpful. They gave me local advice as I needed a few things. The pool was a bonus. It was open at good times & staff were very nice. All in all we had a great time & really enjoyed our stay. It made our weekend even more special! :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quinny Ultra clean room, good facilities and very quiet.
The best Holiday Inn I have stayed at by far. The staff were 100% across the board for helpfulness and professionalism. Excellent restaurant both for food and service. I was also very impressed with how they accommodatedat my serious food allergies. They made me and my young afghan hound very welcome and I will certainly stay there again when I visit the area next year. One tiny gripe...there was only one bath towel in the room and although I accept that more would have been brought to my room upon request, for the price of the room, this does appear rather stingy...and is also rather inconvenient if one is already in the shower before checking! But overall, an excellent hotel experience and one to be recommended.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by johkaboy Quiet break that wasn't
The hotel offers a good comfortable room and polite staff however wanting to spend a quiet evening with a drink in the bar was not a possibility on three of our four nights due to parties and wedding guests taking up all the seating and hanging around the bar causing long delays, I gave up and went to my room. There were not enough staff on the bar especially with so many people partying. I suggest parties are held in their function rooms with bar facilities in them not using the central bar.

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a wedding party. The hotel was very busy on Friday night as it became host to two birthday parties and on the Saturday there was a 50th birthday bash next to our room. It was difficult to have a quiet family gathering in the lounge even more difficult was to sleep.The rooms are pleasant but formal, obviously more business oriented. Breakfast was cold at 7.30 and better the later you arrived - guess the first serving had been 'warming' for some time. The staff are kind and attentive except for the bar service which we found was 'hit & miss'. The bar prices are OUTRAGEOUS - a glass of white wine costing £ 9.00!
Overall, a busy place more concerned with 'turnover; than attention to detail.

Arrived on a Saturday night and myself and colleagues had to wait at least 10 minutes before a member of the team could assist us. Perhaps being under staffed on a Saturday was not a deliberate thing however, this hugely affected our arrival experience. Getting to the to was a bit tricky with a case seeing no lifts available in the property.

This is a really nice Holiday Inn hotel but what set it apart for me was just how friendly and helpful the staff are. Staff engagement can make or break a hotel regardless of how good the facilities might be. I stayed here on business for a couple of months and was really well looked after.
If I had to find something that could be improved upon it would be that the bar was sometimes overwhelmed and service could therefore be slow.
Overall, excellent experience and was sorry to be moving on.

I stayed for three nights with my two young children. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, the food was lovely and the kids eat free was a definite bonus. We made use of the pool which was nice and the towels were provided too. The room was kept clean by the cleaning staff. Overall a lovely experience and I would definitely go back if the occasion occurred.

Spent the night here after a day at LEGOLAND with our two granddaughters. The family room was very comfortable and we all had a good night. We enjoyed breakfast and the girls especially loved the pancake machine! They then went on to swim in the Spirit Health Club pool. All staff were helpful and attentive and we agreed that our stay at this Holiday Inn enhanced our little break together. Thank you.
