Extremely friendly and helpful staff considering they were working over Christmas. The hotel provided lots of extra festive goodies including stocking on the door, Bucks Fizz etc. A happy time, I will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Plebbles79 Good, clean hotel with very helpful, friendly staff
My mother and I stayed at this hotel whilst visting family. The room was comfortable, clean and a pleasant temperature that was easy to control (unlike most hotels, which insist on turning the heating up far too high). All of the staff, from reception to bar to room service, were incredibly friendly and helpful but special mention must be made to delightful staff at breakfast, for whom nothing was too much trouble, even when the restaurant was full.
This is one of the best holiday inns that I have used, and I will definitely stay here again.

This was our fourth stay at the Holiday Inn, Fareham, and we will certainly return, Having stayed at hotels in many countries from those in mainland Europe, Channel Islands, America, Canada and Australia we consider the hotel measures up well against others of the same grade. We recommend it to others.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by skidders poor facilities
heating not working.phone not working.only told the day before arrival that the swimming pool area was closed for maintenance when you knew weeks beforehand that it was due.stayed here 5 times in the last 2 years never been a problem always enjoyed our stay.feel like we have been let down.one of the reasons we stay here is because of the the swimming pool, sauna etc.we would have still stayed if we had known about the closure but now we feel that you have been very underhand.despite this we have still booked a christmas break on the 24th and 25th of december.this is only because of passed service we recieved.we believe in giving people a second chance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mog1946 Very clean hotel and very friendly staff
I was down that way for a 60th birthday party, and booked the hotel more for convenience than anything. On arriving I was very pleased to see how nice it looked from the outside. Even more pleased with the very friendly greeting when i went to book in.
It was very clean and tidy, compared to some i've stayed at, and the room itself was immaculate. Very comfortable bed giving a great nights sleep.
Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of visiting the area.
I'm not usually that fussy about where I stay, but this was one of the best. 5*s from me to all the staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chef3 not for us
We stayed here over half term and have used a Holiday Inn in a different area before and can honestly say this stay was not as good as our previous experience. On a positive note the hotel was really clean, the room we had was clean but very dated.
The swimming pool was very off putting and was dirty and slimy round the edges and green in colour YUK. we were informed by pool reception staff immediately that we had to keep to a roped off area if we didn't intend to swim, I felt this was very unwelcoming. We later found out that the pool was being closed for 2 weeks after half term for cleaning and not before time. The pool is roped off with 2/3rds for swimmers and a small area for "play time" as a board informed. We were also told by a person in the pool that if we wanted to swim we had to be in the next part as where we were was for playing. Then the pool was cordoned off even more to half of the 1/3rd so swimming lessons were on, at one point it was standing room only with at least 5 families squashed in a very small area and 2 swimmers in the rest of the pool.
Breakfast was uninspiring and the staff except 1 were very unfriendly, did not take away the dirty dishes and guests had to keep asking for items that had run out and not been replenished. A waitress dropped a lot of plates and cups behind our table there was no apology despite the shards of china hitting our feet. My son wanted an omelette I asked the chef if this was possible he replied "well you'll have to wait it will take time" I didn't dare ask for a veggie sausage after that and we never asked him again for anything. we chose to eat out due to the staff and food choices they need to consider more variety for vegetarians and they have a couple of lovely places to eat nearby.
We will be returning to the area but definitely not staying here

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by East1 Good & bad
Whilst the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was of a very good quality, the overall impression of the hotel is that it is tired and in need of a facelift. The bathroom was showing signs of mould, fixings were coming away and the hotel pool is in desperate need of a makeover. There is green algae all over the tiles.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by froggy13 A friendly hotel but food is average
The staff was great and really welcoming and efficient . The breakfast was very good . Unfortunately none of the dishes we had for dinner met out expectation . They tasted like industrial food and the kids meals were way too spicy. It's a pity they can't hire a proper cook .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GaryQ107 Great staff but air con could do better!
Air con could not be tamed stayed at 20 degrees all night despite my attempts. Made it difficult to sleep even after opening window to try and cool things down some hours later.
Everything else fine - power shower best ever (ground floor).
Didn't eat there so cannot comment on food.
Wedding in full song but could not hear anything in our room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Richardh3 An average experience
Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Bedroom was comfortable and well equipped but it's about time all hotel rooms that are described as "doubles" should have a bed that is at least 5 ft wide - this one was only a small double.
The window was fitted with wooden sliding shutters which required a big effort to close (no curtain). A bit of lubrication on the runners would help.
Overall an average hotel room.
Restaurant staff were very friendly but the speed of service was poor - we waited 25 minutes for our first course. I suspect there was a problem in the kitchen. No wonder there were only a few tables in use and this was a Saturday night.
The food was average.

It was so nice to stay in a lovely, comfortable hotel where children are welcome. The staff were very friendly, the room was lovely and clean and comfortable, the pool was nice and warm. Breakfast was gorgeous. The only negative was that dinner in the restaurant was not particularly great...very expensive for poor portion sizes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pistonhead Outstanding Staff
As always a very enjoyable stay, all of the staff at this hotel are outstanding, everyone goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated. The food is fantastic from breakfast to evening meal, but is the pleasant and attentive attitude of the staff that set this hotel apart from so many chain hotels. My wife and I are already looking forward to our next stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jetsetterjules Great welcome and good facilities
We very much enjoyed our 2 nights in a family room. Plenty of room and the sofa bed was great for the 2 boys age 15. The health club with the pool was really handy and very popular. The breakfast was well organised and plenty of choice. the staff both at reception and in the restaurant were very dedicated and friendly. We will be back and especially will look at Holiday Inn for other short breaks.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blabbermouth Comfortable but no shower
A pleasant stay for two nights only spoiled by a shower that refused to function at certain times of the day and especially early in the morning (quite an important shower time I would say). Reception staff where not very sympathetic or apologetic. It might be an issue only on the first floor because our family members on the ground floor had no such problems.
Buffet breakfast had a good selection and generally good quality but avoid the stale croissants.
