Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DH47 Friendly staff
The hotel has an excellent location, being only a few minutes away from Winchester and the M3. it is very modern with spacious public areas. Parking is plentiful and close to the hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is very good with plenty of choice.
However, what makes this hotel special are the staff. They are so friendly and helpful and give their guests a genuine welcome feeling. We look forward to our next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joeski Very relaxing overnight stay.
We only stayed 1 night as it was a connection to take us to Southampton we had in the morning, but overall this hotel has absolutely wonderful, friendly staff willing to help at the drop of a hat. Very comfortable room and a tasty breakfast in the morning.
When we returned to pick up our car after our holiday a special mention must go to the receptionist on the day,13/10/2014 who not only acquired the services of the maintenance man complete with jump leads to start our dead car but she even gave us a cup of coffee while we were waiting and sorting the car out.
Thanks again to her and the maintenance man, this made the stay worthwhile despite problem on return.
Overall a first class stay with a first class, friendly service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Provence Excellent base for visiting Winchester and the South Downs
Reception on arrival was efficient and courteous, as first time visitors to the area, the helpful advice, voluntary provided by Sharon the duty receptionist was greatly appreciated and helped in planning our stay to best advantage. I should also mention, that Sharon's help in resolving a problem with my Tablet, "was over and above the call of duty." All the reception staff throughout our 5 day stay were extremely helpful and courteous. The young staff employed in the bar and dining room, who for the most part were employed on a part time basis, were attentive without being obsequious, and had clearly been well trained and briefed, Lauren was particularly good and efficient. Our room was spotlessly clean and well serviced each day, the only shortcoming being the rather limited space for hanging and storing clothing. All in all a very pleasant, happy stay in a very well run establishment, with courteous, efficient and very helpful staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guest109 Food and drink very pricey!!
Overall a good hotel but the food and drink are expensive and you do not get much for your money, e.g. two sausages on a spoonful of mash, no veg ..over £10.00 No hot water on the morning of leaving and reported this to reception staff...cold shower brrr!! Breakfast excellent. Difficult to attract staff at breakfast for tea/coffee top up. Availability of fried eggs not too obvious as you have to request this.

An area was made available to our party, separated from other customers. This was laid out with comfortable chairs and tables, near reception. Staff were extremely accommodating and helpful, responding to our needs instantly and politely.

A clean modern hotel in a convenient location for access to Winchester with ample free parking . Good attitude and service from staff. Breakfast good of its type. Only gripes are non-opening windows to bedroom and wash basin too high for comfort.

Good stay as always, the staff were great and the hotel looked fresh and inviting after a long day on the road.
Food is OK, but can be on the cool side at breakfast.
Room is good, quiet and clean.

We stopped here on our way to the South-west after a long flight into Heathrow. I'm sure we looked pretty rough!
Staff could not be friendlier and awesome with our baby.
Hotel is modern, fresh

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rainman444444454455 A lot of queuing
I seemed to spend a disproportionate amount of time queuing for check in and check out. Despite the process being quite simple there was no enough staff to handle people arriving and leaving on a weekend in September.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MikeH1977 A good second choice hotel...
While the Holiday Inn Winchester is well presented, spacious and realtively cheap, whether it is good value is still open to debate.
The food we got from the bar was good, though there really was not very much of it. Also, the internet is chargeable. By the hour. And if you pay the full price for 24hrs you get a whopping 1Mb download speed - perhaps - and for a limited number of devices. I know it's easier for smaller hotels to give Wifi away for free, to as many devices as you want, but this shows that Holiday Inn cannot really scale up if they get busy.
I would suggest you only visit this on business. If you were taking your family, with lots of wifi gadgets it could get very costly

Brilliant front desk staff, always remember you on your return visit.. Restaurant staff treat you like a human rather than a lone female traveller!! i.e. they do not put on display on a table in the centre of the room!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johntheroad First-class restaurant
The hotel building is not attractive - a concrete block-house - and the rooms are small, with very little drawers and hanging room for clothes, and a tiny bathroom. Worst of all, the windows do not open, so no fresh air. For that, there is an unattractive terrace outside the bar, with grass growing up between the concrete blocks and dying pot-plants. But the restaurant was first-class, with an interesting menu and wine list, high quality food, and excellent service. So, overall, good for an overnight with dinner.

Stayed a night for a local wedding. We were able to check into our room 3 hours early for no extra charge. It was clean, comfortable and in excellent condition.

Have stayed here many times before and found it to be clean and better than many HI .
Food is definetely better though slipping a little in quality. Our only complaint is that the price is higher than we think it should be and higher than many other HI in similar areas. We know several colleagues who now stay at Fareham instead because of cost..

We had a superb stay at this hotel. Had an executive room which was very well furnished with complimentary fruit and cookies. Staff were friendly and helpful organising a taxi for us when ours hadn't arrived to pick us up at a nearby party at 2.00am. Breakfast was superb, a great spread, tasty and not overlooked! Nice bar area too.

We used the Winchester Holiday Inn en route for a short-break on the South coast and were delighted to find it offered a particularly high standard of accommodation, service and superb food ( demonstrated by AA rosette ) for this level of hotel. Highly recommended and we would certainly return if in the area.

On arrival we were welcomed by very professional
Staff in reception and were delighted to be told we had been upgraded to executive rooms. The entrance/reception/lounge area was a wonderful light and airy area with plenty of space to sit. Our rooms were on the 1st floor and very well appointed and quiet. We dined in the restaurant which was a very relaxed area next to the bar with all matching decor and very relaxed atmosphere

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bonjovi3 Bar Staff and breakfast
The bar staff that evening were very accomodating and friendly. They provided me with a tea pot and skimmed milk to take to my room., also free nuts were a bonus. Thankyou.
My only dissapointment was that at breakfast tea was served from a flask (a little stewed) and in a mug. Tea, expecially morning tea should be from an individual teapot and drank from a cup and saucer.
Your survey is too long

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smithers21 Clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast.
The hotel was lovely and modern and the room was clean and comfortable. There was minimal noise from the adjacent rooms however the floor from the room above squeaked/creaked whenever anyone walked across it. I would suggest a room on the top floor if possible.
We stayed on and B and B basis, good choice for breakfast including fresh fruit and branded cereals.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MyBFN Thoroughly enjoyable stay
This is our third visit to Winchester Holiday Inn. We use these hotels a lot and I would suggest that this has to be a 'flagship' hotel for the Holiday Inn chain. The hotel is very modern and the rooms spacious and comfortable. It is the restaurant which makes this hotel stand out from others we have used. I understand it is a franchise and it is quite expensive but the quality of hte food makes it worth it. There is a small gym but it sadly lacks the swimming pool that others offer. We will be returning in a few weeks to bring our grandchildren so we can take them into the New Forest and visit the Science Centre next door. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. Thank You.

Zwischenstopp auf dem Weg nach London. Haben das Science Center angesehen, das super für Kinder ist und fast direkt neben dem Hotel liegt. Die Kathedrale ist auch sehenswert.
