Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Becketts Excellent Hotel
Stayed at this hotel 2nd August- 5th August 2013. The Hotel is of an exceptional standard one of the best Holiday Inn's we have stayed at. Restaurant facilities and standard of food outstanding. Staff extremely welcoming and friendly.
We stayed in a family room located on the lower ground floor. Rooms are extremely spacious, clean and modern. A couple of negatives.... The wardrobes are extremely narrow for a family of four staying for more than two nights and there is a lack of drawer space. The sink in the bathroom is a poor design far too high for children. Our ten year old could not reach the sink to clean her teeth.
Finally, the wifi cost is per device at £9.99 per 24 hours. This we found overpriced considering a family of 4 is more than likely to have more than one wireless device.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PH2210 Good clean hotel with helpful staff
I cannot fault the quality of the room,hotel in general or the enthusiasm of the staff - all excellent. My only critisms are regarding firstly the online booking.When selecting which package to choose I picked the first which I thought met our needs not realising that there over 50 more different options to choose from which explains why I never saw anything about breakfast costing extra! Secondly,the internet.The last time I stayed in a Holiday Inn (not this one and a couple of years ago where the breakfast was included in the price!) Wi-Fi was £5 and cable connection in the room was free.Very different now. I was given a code for 30 mins "complimentary" connection which was not very satisfactory for a 3 day stay.
I can understand a charge for Wi-Fi but nearly £10/day for wired connection - that's a bit much - not impressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SIC27 Fantastic stay
Efficient & excellent service from staffs at Holiday Inn Winchester. I rang the hotel on a Wednesday morning telling them we have left some clothes in the room. Our clothes arrived back in our house the next day in the afternoon.
Rooms are clean and spacious. Very prompt room service as we had dinners in our room. Very peaceful and quiet rooms despite proximity to motorway.
2 little niggles : Would be great to have a small fridge in the room and the bathroom basin is just a little too high. I am only 5" tall and the sink height levels with my chest! :-)
Very very enjoyable stay nevertheless. Highly recomended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dazdalzell Excellent Value for money
I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and the service and value for money is most excellent. The free transport service to the town of Winchester is most welcome and the driver Colin is very helpful.
The gymnasium facility is fantastic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boars Comfortable Bed
Bedroom excellent but bathroom unsuitable for everyday use.
unless you are over 6ft tall
Same applies on getting in and out of the bath
The younger members of the Restaurant Staff need more training
in the detail of their jobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nutts46 Clean and comfortable hotel
Lovely new hotel, very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night but the room was very comfortable and clean.
Bar area very nice, We ate in the hotel restaurant in the evening, food and drinks were a little expensive but both were nice!
Price for the room was very reasonable, we didn't have breakfast as we had a very early start the next day.
All in all a great nights stay, would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annie05 Welcoming and great Service
The hotel was welcoming, clean and air conditioned - very important at the start of the heat wave. The staff were extremely helpful. Reception staff helped us with all our requests - even to finding me an emery board . We required several taxis and they booked everyone for us. The restaurant and bar staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the bed was comfortable. In particular, the night porter, on the Friday evening was cheerful helpful and friendly even though he was busy setting up for a wedding on the Saturday. Will definitely go to this hotel again and have already recommended to my friends

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SprintUser Fantastic restaurant but.........
This stay at the Holiday Inn Winchester was excellent in every respect except for one small point noted below.
The room was well-appointed, clean and comfortable and the standard of service at the front desk and in the restaurant was first class.
The evening meal in the restaurant was the best we have had in the last few years and only bettered by one at a Holiday Inn in Paris a number of years ago. So well done there. Incredible value.
The only small point ( which was subsequently handled very well by the front desk ) was over breakfast. My wife and I drink neither tea nor coffee and our request for hot chocolate was met with a response that we would have to pay extra for that. Now I am a frequent business traveller and work abroad a lot and I have never encountered this before in any hotel I have stayed in so you might care to reconsider your policy here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bikergoose Overall good but ....
I left my iPhone charger behind and to be honest, when I called reception 28/06/13 she could not be bothered and put me through to housekeeping. Housekeeping said they would look for it and call me but I have not heard. It soured an otherwise great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by badalicat7 Lovely ideally placed hotel
2 night stay for me. Great reception area to sit an chat with fab outdoor dining/seating area too with fab weather which helped.
Relaxed, informal atmosphere and great modern rooms very well presented. My faith is slowly being restored in HI with this one. Stones throw to Winchester with 1/2 hour into Southampton. Only downside is the noise in room from adjoining rooms but typical in these newly built hotels now. walls are paper thin. Restaurant. its a bit stuffy and dark, with the food well overpriced even for a hotel. Nice though. Will stay again and eat in the town next time.
no recognition of me being priority member nor did I get my complimentary newspapers

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HernitCrab Good service, modern, but bed is TOO soft
Overall a good hotel, quite new and modern. The service of the staff were good and friendly. The rooms were clean but relatively small. The only downside was the bed. It was too soft for a new hotel. The bed did not provide sufficient support and sunk too much in the middle....not comfortable at all. It appeared to be an under-invested item in the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KandJG Nice stay
We enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a little on the small side, but it seems all bathrooms in England are small. The buffet breakfast offered a good variety and was tasty. We appreciated the location of this hotel, because it was outside of the town center and we had a car to get to town.

The hotel is very clean, modern and smart. Staff were very welcoming and helpful with a couple of queries,
The area and car park felt secure, pleasant grounds etc.
I would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ajka13 Comfortable and spacious
We had a family room which was very spacious and well laid out. The room had everything we needed. The only downside (as with most hotels) were slightly noisy families that had young children running up and down the corridors being very noisy, quite early in the morning when others are trying to sleep.
Bar area nice, terrace lovely, breakfast variety was very good. Staff helpful and friendly.
Spent the weekend in and out of Winchester and the hotel locatiion, although not in the centre of Winchester, worked fine for us.

Our experience of this hotel was good with excellent service from the staff. Room was pleasant and comfortable and very clean and decor was to a very high standard. The food and beverages were good with excellent choice buffet style for breakfast. The only amenities we felt missing was spa and swimming pool.

We have stayed at this hotel before and we had just as good a stay this time.
The bed and pillows are really comfortable which is important to me as I have a neck problem.
The hotel is convenient for getting into Winchester which is a great City to walk around. There are also plenty of really nice restaurants if you want a change from eating in the hotel.
Overall, a great weekend's rest and comfort.

Lovely clean Hotel, friendly welcoming staff. Room comfortable and very clean, room service daily. We were on a B&B rate with a toddler and you get value for your money with breakfast with a large variety of food to choose from, We did not eat in the restaurant but had room service which even though is pricey the food was lovely.
Would and have recommended to family and friends. Would stay again when visiting family in the area.
Very easy access to alot of local tourist attractions like Peppa Pig World & Winchester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yummy11 Friendly hotel in good location
We chose this hotel as we were visiting Peppa Pig World and as a family of four we very much enjoyed our stay here. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a nice meal in the bar end of the restaurant were we were made to feel welcome and relaxed with our 5 & 2 year old children. The family room we booked was comfortable and a good size & breakfast provided us with a good choice. The staff were friendly and gave the children Peppa Pig colouring packs which they both enjoyed. I would stay again when in the area & would recommend to others wishing to stay near Winchester (which was only 5 min drive away).

Stayed for one night to visit Winchester and local area. Lovely twin double bedded room, very spacious and with a great shower.
We had dinner and breakfast and both were good value and good quality meals.
The only problem as before when we stayed in November is that the public rooms are hot and stuffy.
Will stay again though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RegularHotelDweller Another night, another hotel.
Great newly built hotel. Lots of car parking space and location very good too just off motorway but without traffic noise.
Menu in restaurant very limited but this Holiday Inn not alone in that. Food better than some though.
Staff very friendly and attentive.
No upgrade for being Platinum member even though upgrade still available to book and request made on booking. Disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kay0911 once again great service
i have stayed in this hotel many times and the service just seems to get better and better. Checking in at reception is always efficient and welcoming. The hotel is spotless and the rooms always of a high standard. I have never eaten in the restaurant, as always take room service, but the service and quality of food is always of a very high standard. The food at breakfast is always hot and of a good standard.
I have nothing but praise for this hotel and would recommend it to anyone
