Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedNovember Wonderful weekend away at Winchester
We booked our stay well in advance and got a really good rate for our room, we were pleased, the holiday had already started well! Due to arrive from London, 3 hours ahead of check in time, we asked about storage for our bags...secure, free storage....Great! Once we arrived for Check in, we were greeted by a super-efficient lady, who knew our names from the bag storage earlier, despite not having served us. We checked in in under 3 minutes and were in our room. The space astounded us. It really felt like we'd entered a movie set, just like where you see stars lounging around and sipping champagne...Super comfortable and just the break we needed! Breakfast the next morning was a treat, and we enjoyed the good natures of the wait-staff. This experience is one I'd do over in a heartbeat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig71 It's so good here....
... We are thinking of having our wedding event here too! we have stayed twice now, and we just love the look of this place. as Holiday Inns go, this has a contemporary feel and the space is great. Our stay was as comfortable as you could want, with no issues at all.
Thanks to the staff, and I'll be back as soon as I can...!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Regularvisitor180 Ok if a little sterile
A new and modern holiday inn. Rooms are fine, if a little sterile. Which is a common theme across the hotel. It feels like an empty airport departure lounge sometimes. Staff on front desk are great and friendly, which is more than can be said for bar/restaurant staff who seem miserable and overworked even when bar is empty. Overall a nice hotel, but few benefits for platinum members except
free broadband which is often too slow to be useful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ManAki Clean and comfortable
We stayed on christmas eve and found the whole experience nice and comfortable. Apart from the chap managing the restaurant who was not warm in his countenance, other staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there next time I'm in that region.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paddy88 Brilliant service,
I checked in past midnight and checked out at 5 am.
In that time the person on reception went out of his way to arrange for a chef to make up a breakfast to take away. Croissants, water, fruit and cheeses.
Really brilliant service and I will be going back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by f1photos Noisy, uncomfortable and freezing showers
Food & staff are good, even if a bit more training is needed in certain areas.
However the hotel is incredibly noisy. Why they put people in rooms overlooking the function room when there are loud parties going on is beyond me. Why don't you put the guests who are attending the events in those rooms so they won't be affected.
The bed in our room had a severe case of the wobbles. Make any sort of movement and it felt like there was an earthquake.. The sink in the bathroom is set at a level for a giant. I'm 6ft2 and it was uncomfortably high, not that it mattered because on our second night there was no hot water in the morning anyway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laranjeiras A One Nighter Before Xmas
Needing convenient accommodation whilst visitng relatives before Xmas we boooked into this relatively new HI. We were impressed. Apart from a great price for the room, we were impressed with the space and the quiet and the decor. A very well planned HI. Well done.
Access from Winchester and the M3 is easy. Good pubs nearby, too.
Our only grumble was around the price of a cooked breakfast. Yes the quality of the food was good. Yes, the service was of the usual HI standard, but the price was a rip-off.
Shame, really, because we would have given 5 stars.

A very good Hotel, Comfortable and clean with fantasticaly helpful staff, all of them polite and friendly.
I felt that the breakfast was over priced and that the meals in the restaraunt were expensive compared with the general prices in Wincester.
But generally a very good stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Josephine25 Comfortable modern hotel in convenient locaiton
Stayed at the hotel as I was attending a course and my partner stayed too. Got a taxi into Winchester City Centre for Sunday night dinner which was about £10 each way but well worth it. The hotel's bar and restaurant were very popular not just with residents but with locals and parties. Not somewhere to stay for a long spell but great for an overnight or weekend stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HPX23 Friendly staff and lovely clean rooms
The visit started well with an extremely welcoming and cheerful receptionist. It is amazing the difference this can make when checking into a hotel and such a pleasant change from a recent stay at a different chain. The room was spotless, modern and comfortable. Plenty of coffee and tea sachets in your room. Parking was easy and the whole hotel had a really fresh and clean feel. Breakfast was fine on Friday morning. However, Saturday breakfast was very busy and the staff were a bit rushed off their feet. To be fair there were signs on reception warning you that certain times were very busy and recommending quieter times. However, we were not in a rush and had a leisurely breakfast.
Would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a good base to visit Winchester. It took only a few minutes to drive into Winchester and park. We used the Chesil street car park which cost £6.00 for all day and was a easy walk into the town centre. Saved queueing for the Park and Ride buses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DES69 Good hotel pity about the breakfast
Enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much. Room and reception staff were as expected from the Holiday Inn, but was spoilt by the lack of clear tables and shortage of staff at breakfast the following morning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Maggie16 Very Corperate
Very comfortable room, reception staff very friendly and efficient. Car parking good. Only had breakfast as all food appeared over priced and judging by breakfast was not good value, we ate out in Winchester! Bar area not very inviting with uncomfortable seating. Met with our requirements for shopping weekend but would not visit again for leisure.

A good place to stay, the hotel was well appointed and the staff helpful and friendly. Shame about the noisy drunk neighbours at 3am in the morning, people these days have little / no consideration for anyone else except themselves.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JayP Great Value for Money
Booked 2 rooms for my friend and I for an overnight stay to visit the Christmas market. As I booked in advance, I got a great deal and we had the luxury of a spacious room each.
Rooms were comfortable with everything we needed.
Bathroom was clean and had a great bath and shower with lots and lots of hot water which is just what we needed after a cold and wet day in Winchester. My only criticism would be the sink. I could just about lean into it and I am not short, but my little friend at 5' 2" could barely brush her teeth. They are set far too high.
We ate in the bar and the food and drinks were good value for money.
We did find the heat in the public areas quite warm and this made us a bit uncomfortable; we went back to our rooms after a while to cool down!
Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and good quality.
All in all a good stay, but please turn the heat down a bit!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cn10 This is a great Find
We stayed one night before going to a wedding and found it a very good expereince. The hotel looks lovely, lots of space and very comfortable. Rooms are large with plenty of room for luggage and clothes. We had dinner and found it very good, lots of choice, well cooked and well presented. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice. We will definitely use it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chrissy12 Professional yet friendly
I was greeted on arrival with a warm and professional approach, which carried on during my stay. The restaurant and bar were cosy and inviting, and the food was of a high quality.
The room was spacious, although the decor of greens and browns seemed a little gloomy. However, the lighting gave the room some ambience. Spotlessly clean and well maintained ~ I would certainly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiff101 Friendly, relaxed atmosphere
We stayed here for 3 nights in October to attend a family christening, we had our 3 year old with us and the room we were in had a double bed and a pull out bed for our son. He loved it, his own wee bed and there was still plenty of room to move about.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, only downside was the bathroom was very small.
We had lunch in the bar and the menu was extensive, a great choice and the food was very good. Breakfast was excellent and a great variety of food on the buffet.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here and will definately stay here again when visiting our family and friends in the Winchester area.
On one of the nights during our stay there was wedding taking place and their was absolutely no noise that we could hear coming from the party, which was great. Have stayed in other hotels where you have heard music and noise all night long.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lizzybee13 Amazing night's sleep and peaceful environment
We stayed overnight on our way to Southampton to embark a cruise. After a long drive I requested a room on the top floor and quiet. That is exactly what we got. A room at the back with the most comfortable bed we had slept in for a long time in a hotel. The hotel was exceptionally clean with spacious modern decor and everything you could need in the room including it's position surrounded by trees yet within easy connection with the M3. The reception staff were particularly charming and helpful. We will definitely use this hotel again and booking early gets a good deal with a tasty breakfast included.

I would give this an overall 9/10
Lovely room, very clean bathroom.
Its a very welcoming hotel. not the usual motorway hotel stops.
Very much modern and updated. Tv, Wi-fi. choice of payperview movies. good selection of family titles. and free channels including Sky1.
Only problem for me, no mini fridge. When i stay overnight, i like to keep a few chilled bottles of water,wine ect...
Although the staff were very helpful and supplied a wine cooler and ice.
The restaurant was very nice, few couples, few business groups and a few family tables. Little expensive, but great tasting food, and very well presented, staff could not have been better.
