We have now stayed at this hotel for about 2 days a week for 18 months and would highly recommend it for the customer service, friendliness of the staff and the way the hotel guest rooms and general areas are kept immaculate.It is a hotel that welcomes and caters for people of all ages and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel 100%

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HA50 Middle of the road experience
The downstairs, open plan aspect of the restaurant, bar and conference facilities are impersonal and guests seemed to be milling around looking for where they should be. Sitting in the restaurant was rather like being "on show" not very relaxing at all.
The guest room was very clean and tidy, but the doors seemed to slam themselves shut on a slow close mechanism, so quite noisy as guests come and go.
The AC unit in the room was really too noisy to sleep so it was either sleep with the noise or be hot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 666rpm Good and Bad.
Good points: Staff were excellent. Food was good. Everything was clean. Had a good sleep.
Bad points: Nowhere to hang clothes. Can't open room window. Washbasin height nearly 1.2m (estimate). Immovable TV with poor viewing angles. Food portions tiny. Poor selection of beers. Bar overpriced. Isolated. Utilitarian, "blockhouse" impression of exterior.

Hard to fault .....a modern Holiday Inn with slick, cheerful service, good food and ideally located in the heart of the busy South Coast. Good parking.

Nice hotel. Great staff, friendly and helpful. Breakfast / service was excellent. Great food / service.
Small issue with the shower but didn’t report it until leaving so didn’t give them the chance to fix it while there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable family room and great full English breakfast
My wife and I and our 2 children stayed at The Holiday Inn Winchester for 3 nights during the half term period at the end of May 2014. The family room was clean and comfortable. All the staff e.g. cleaners, restaurant staff, reception staff were happy, friendly and very helpful. The full English breakfast each morning was fantastic. Kath

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Romans Great hotel - just a bit isolated from city
This hotel has excellent free parking and feels very new. It has a huge bright lobby and plenty of seating there This overlooks the restaurant area on a lower floor. The staff were all cheerful, friendly and welcoming - and both checkin and checkout were rapid and efficient. Our room was on the lobby floor and so was easy to access. It was much larger than average and was bright and very well equipped with the usual very comfortable Holiday Inn beds and pillows. Storage space for clothes was reasonable and there was a good desk and very comfortable chair. The bathroom was excellent and the over-bath shower was wonderful and powerful. There was plenty of in-room coffee and good choice of programmes on the TV. We had an excellent night's sleep with good blackout curtains and absolutely no noise. Overall this was an excellent hotel - only slightly marked down as it is a few miles from the city in a green field site and so you are rather isolated and cannot get to restaurants or the city without a car. However if you want a good night's sleep and a very good hotel with excellent staff and are content to eat at the hotel restaurant, then this is a great choice.

No opening window was a disappointment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by footballfan66 Very good but food was a bit slow.
My wife and I stayed using the rewards night option and it was easy to find. On arrival, we were upgraded to an Executive room. This had extras such as a fridge/mini bar, safe, robes etc.
The desk staff were polite and friendly but I thought the check-in terminals were too close as we were in the middle of two other parties checking in or out.
We were given the option of a free drink each or 300 rewards points. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for these points! The staff said they would add them to my account but on previous stays I was given a voucher.
The hotel was superb, the room was clean and comfortable, nice bar and restaurant. Car parking was free which is fantastic.
We chose to have an evening meal and breakfast. The meal was of high quality but we had to wait about half-an-hour for the main course. A similar wait was experienced for my two poached eggs in the morning. It was a bit expensive but we were in superb surroundings. We used breakfast vouchers to save about a tenner.
The hotel itself is about five minutes from the town. There is a planetarium and science centre on the same site.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JD Healey Excellent Holiday Inn
Winchester has one of the best Holiday Inns I have stayed in. It is located a couple of miles outside the city but in a quiet semi-rural location with no noticeable traffic noise. It is a very modern, spacious hotel with excellent facilities - a good restaurant, bar and lounge area. Wifi was free and a good speed, though Vodaphone reception was very weak.
We stayed during school holiday time, and being close to Peppa Pig World there were several young children staying, but there was plenty of space, so not a major issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMC29 Great service, good breakfast
We enjoyed our stay in Winchester and found the room clean, comfortable and well- equipped. The windows are not able to be opened at all, which made the room a bit stuffy even with the aircon - glad we were not staying in high summer!

We came back because we enjoyed our first visit, only downside is you still have the silly little side plates at breakfast, smaller than the piece of toast!

A very nice hotel situated on the outskirts of Winchester. Very light and bright. Staff were very attentive and Amy in particular made our stay very pleasant.
Evening meals were good but if you stayed for more than two nights I think the set menu would be become boring.
Bedroom was wheelchair accessible as was the rest of the hotel. The shower room was particularly well equipped.
A very pleasant place to stay.

The toaster is the most important thing and many hotels you wait and even the second time around it's not brown,,,, I was blown away great food and brown toast the first time around . #ihg please look at best practice and leave all the other hotel groups behind .

Good modern Holiday Inn. Be aware its a long way out of town which is both a pro and a con. I liked the interior design of the public areas. Best breakfast I've had in a HI.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RolandRat Don't think you will get better
We stayed over a Saturday and Sunday night, beginning of March.
I have never been in such a lovely hotel. The entrance is lovely and bright, the staff where fantastic very friendly and helpful.
The room was very welcoming, clean and comfortable..
One thing we noticed was how different the staff where, compared to other hotels. Very friendly, helpful and acted very normal.
We had breakfast and an evening meal in the hotel. The breakfast buffet was well stocked and fresh and hot. Tables cleared quickly and no real wait to be seated.
The evening meal was fantastic. The food was second to none.
Will be back at some point.
This hotel should be used as the standard for Holiday inns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very pleasant experience
Stayed here on Saturday night and it was fantastic.
Nice and quiet (without the usual weekday business trade), staff couldn't have been more helpful, room very comfortable and modern, great location and taxi only £6 into the city centre.
Highly recommend local pub / restaurant The Golden Lion (only £5 taxi ride) as somewhere to eat.
Wifi is actually free if you give your email address which was a nice bonus.
Tasty breakfast with plenty of choice - only downside to the whole experience / cost is that I think for the price breakfast should be included.
Would definitely stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigSi It's a fact!
Whatever else might be good or bad, my own view is that it is the staff of any hotel that are the deciding factor on whther we like it or not....and the staff at every level at this Holiday Inn are quite simply OUTSTANDING!!
As an added bonus, the hotel was scrupulously clean and tidy and service from the bar prompt and friendly.
