Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by simon2020 Hotel Remote and Poor Dining Experience
Hotel is okay if you only have to stay for a short period. The restaurant is noisy and service is slow.
Rooms are just what you would expect for such a hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrandonDublinIreland/Trip A Holiday Inn on the outskirts of Winchester
This is a typical hotel of this chain. It is not in the city centre and is a couple of miles outside on the same site as the Science Park and Planitarium. The bus stop to the city centre is right outside and buses go every half hour. We stayed for two nights and used the bus on two return journeys and on the day we left. It is much better than a car in a place without much parking!
We enjoyed our room and bathroom - all pretty standard HI fare. The bar/restaurant area downstairs is an oddly configured space as there are only planters and the odd small screen to separate the different functions of bar and restaurant. The furniture and service are the same as indeed is the menu! Service is quirky and carried out by apparent part time staff who seemed to lack a proper sense of service or training. A maitre 'd or floor manager might help with supervision? The food is OK but does not shine out at all despite their boast of "AA Rosettes" whatever they might mean? Breakfast is no great shakes either!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jam Na Das A great nights sleep
I arrived late, but the reception had taken my request to pre warm the room so I would not have to wait for it to get to the right temp.
Warm and friendly welcome.
The Hotel has a new and clean freash look, lots of parking and not far from the main roads so easy to get to.
Bed was very comfortable and a had a chioce of pillows, which always helps for a good nights sleep.
I did not dine so can not comment on that area.
I would certainly recommend and have just booked a further two nights next week.
Price is very competative and excellent value for what you are getting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HWismynicknameisthatok Sleep quality is only partly influenced by room and surroundings
I nearly did not finish this as @sleep quality@ is a required answer.... how ridiculous is that?
I travel and am in business hotels for 6 to 8 weeks a year, in one hotel I will sleep brilliantly one night and bad the next, the room is the same!
Cut the 'emotional questions'.
Was I happy that breakfast is later at weekends so I had to delay my departure or go without breakfast? No!
Why is there an eerie green light in the bathroom, and did it disturb my sleep?
Why is it so very hard to manipulate the controls of the aircon?
AND SO ON.
As to the outside appearance of the business hotel, it looks like a dormitary block, but that is what it is, I have no view on it, it is irrelevant. No I would not have a vacation at this hotel, but have done within the IHG group.
