Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosemary1 Great place to meet up with family & friends
The Holiday Inn Farnborough was exactly what we needed to join up for a family gathering locally.. Clean comfortable & a great breakfast and reasonably priced. No complaints - staff were friendly, couldn't hear any traffic in fact the room was so dark and soundproof that we overslept! Some family members even had a swim before breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gavc306 Lovely family stay
My wife and I booked this hotel for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year with our 2 kids (2.5 & 8 months). We got a special rate, so only paid about 30% of normal rate! but even at full rate the value was good.
Upon check in, the children received a fun pack each, and the adults got a chocolate bar each ( That was an IHG Elite perk I think), all the kids meals were free and excellent quality. The swimming pool was great and staff very friendly.
Breakfast was lovely, fresh and a great selection, then upon check out, the children got a snack box for the journey!
Even though I stay with holiday inn a lot on business , which I am always happy with, this was a different experience, but one I would highly recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by catnap overall experience
second visit to this hotel , as rated above ,
not happy about long ,long wait ay reception desk ,which seemed to be undermanned all weekend ,not good start ,for anyone . although room was adequate dust build up behind cupboards on light switches ,there for sometime.
prices of drinks at bars ,seem to be plucked out of the air?? certainly with your buying powers ,making astronomical prophets here .Have you never thought of reducing them to sell more.if not at wedding do would have gone elsewhere for drinks/ food. in general could do with a lick and a promise ,not just touched up here and there to suffice,temporary fixes become permanent thing .
hope you will find this as constructive ,critisism and work to
rectify faults.also look at staffing levels .

When I have to stay in Farnborough I choose the Holiday Inn because of the friendly staff, spacious and clean rooms, and the efficient breakfast service.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and 2 grandchildren ages 7 & 8 . We enjoyed out stay very much the whole service was excellent the pool & pool manager (life-guard) was attentive & helpful especially with young children. Every member of staff we met were friendly efficient & happy to help.
The only thing that could be improved on is the menu it was very limited & expensive as was the bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gordon0826 Business Hotel
Well positioned hotel suited for all business needs. Set out is like a 'rabbit warren' but is functional and comfortable.
Meals are available in the bar and restaurant, both are at a good standard. Room service charges are a bit high.
Breakfast meal has a good variety and you have the ability to order eggs to your liking.
Bar prices are a bit stiff, reducing the opportunity to sell more.
Staff are all knowledgeable and happy to help including recommend and supply maps for local restaurants not only theirs.
The wifi is not free, unlike other hotels in the area. Which is a pain when needing to work in the room.
Conference room facilities are good, except for power points of laptops at tables.

Food for Room service was cold and orders were wrong. Room is comfy, but Internet is poor.
I hung up breakfast in bed sign at 2230 but nobody collected it so no breakfast delivered the following day.
Not a brilliant service overall, with some staff struggling to understand English.

Nice hotel and basic. Helpful staff. Bit expensive for a weekend when trying to have a cheap visit to see a Partner that lives in the area. Not far from North Camp train station and Farnborough shops.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FabulousMsEmma Average hotel for the area
I usually stay in another 4* hotel when staying in this area on business. But chose to stay here for a change.
By comparison, this hotel is more of a bog standard, general run of the mill hotel.
The staff where knowledgeable and courteous, and the bed was very comfortable. The room had electric heaters in, which wasnt the best, as i was concious to leave it on overnight and woke up very cold.
Room service was swift and acceptable, and the facilities in the room was as advertised.
Upon check out, i paid my bill, didnt look at is, and later that day was contacted to say they'd not taken enough off my card and could they debit the remaining amount. The receptionist was in training, and maybe i should have checked the amount, but i found this very frustrating.
I stay in Holiday Inn's most of my working week, and to date this is probably not as good as others i've stayed in, purely down to the after service and the fact the room wasnt heated.
There are better hotels within a 5 mile radius for the rate.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DKST Pleasant stay
I was very comfortable in the room, comfortable bed, bit difficult to distinguish any difference between soft and firm pillows but not really a big issue. Shower flow a bit feeble but otherwise very good facilities in bathroom, which was clean and pleasant.Best thing about the room, which I was not expecting, was a little fridge (an empty minibar) and took up offer of small jug of fresh milk, which lasted me the 2 nights I was there and made settling down to watch TV with a proper tea or coffee so much nicer.
The staff on reception were excellent as were the waitresses in the dining room, all professional and courteous. I had a really delicious meal in the dining room with good service. Next evening had sandwiches by room service, the quality and presentation again was excellent but spoiled a bit by having to call twice and wait an hour for them to arrive - bit long when you're really hungry!
Noisy party downstairs on Saturday evening but overall very happy and would return and recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roni31 Friendly staff, nice hotel!
Our first experience of a Holiday Inn, and we were pleasantly surprised by the nice welcoming reception, bar area and clean comfortable rooms. The staff were friendly and there was the added bonus of mars bars in the room! Unfortunately however we were rudely awaken at 1:30am by the fire alarm going off. I was in a fit of panic imagining trying to get my children out of the burning building, and petrified of being left alone whilst my husband went to investigate. The alarm went off after 5 minutes, but then began to sound again and again!! It turned out to be a false alarm and had been set off by another guest breaking a break glass, we found out because my husband went to reception to make enquiries. I however could then not settle for the rest of the evening. A note of apology was left under our room door, but then was no mention of it by staff when we checked out. I felt as a gesture of good will we should have been offered a verbal apology at the very least and/or had some form of compensation for our unsettled night. As it is now all I will remember from my stay at Holiday Inn Farnborough is being woken by the fire alarm! :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pragyna28 Overall a very good experience--Amazing palce to stay
I was there for a about 13 days and it has been really very comfortable and good experience at HHI. The staff was courteous and helpful. My requirements were take care of and the service was up to the mark. The breakfast was really good and the menu also has a good variety. The Tuesday dinner buffet is an added advantage. The wifi conectivity is also great.The gym and the pool are is worth it too.
All in all a very good experience. Keep it up. Hope you continue to render these services in the smae manner.

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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LauraA OK
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
