A fairly standard two night business stay at Fareham. The Holiday Inn has loads of facilities to make a couple of evenings away from home as comfortable as possible. The rooms are clean and tidy. I did find the lack of power sockets, especially at the bedside tables a bit of a bind especially with the need to charge phones etc. I ended up having to use the table lamp socket on the desk.

As a mid-range hotel it meets most criteria:
The chef's do try hard and the tasting table in the evening is a great touch.
The Internet service is very poor and 'out of date' with current trends. Where customers need to pay for faster speeds is out-dated, these faster services should be included in the room rate.
The quality of fresh fruit with the breakfast is average and mostly tasteless.
The front desk service is average with mostly one person on the desk and a queue of customers wanting to settle their bills. Surely this can be improved on at peak hours?
It can take a long time in the evenings to get served at the bar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dids417 Very good hotel with excellent staff
The staff throughout the hotel were very helpful and charming. The restaurant manager, Alex, in particular was attentive, overhearing that my wife wanted porridge he made sure that she got it, and he worked particularly hard, especially when everyone turned up for breakfast at the same time! The rooms seem to have very good sound-proofing and the curtains let in very little light which made it easy to sleep. As usual with a Holiday Inn forgetting something like a face cloth was no disaster as one was quickly provided. Bed was perhaps a lttle too bouncy if someone turns over a lot in the night and one is not sleeping on one's own. Cleanliness everywhere very good. Don't know why everyone who stays in a Holiday Inn does not join the Rewards Club - always like the little extras!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hajd very good customer service and nice clean room
Our room was clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast had a good choice of food. The breakfast dinning area was a bit small compared to other Holiday Inn hotels that we have stayed at and was busy both mornings that we had breakfast. However, the staff were friendly and efficient - overall a good stay and would stay at this hotel again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nilesh1979 Great hotel with extras for kids
Great hotel but my only beef was with the extra sofa bed in my room. You could feel the springs on it. Needed to be replaced. Overall rooms are ok, need a face lift for sure. Just 20 minutes away from Peppa Pig World.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rita 49 A good stay
Although we checked in late and the hotel was very busy, the reception staff were pleasant and welcoming and the glasses of wine that were offered were gratefully received. Room was very clean and tidy and well sound proofed, we did not hear any noise from the ongoing parties that were taking place. Breakfast was well up to Holiday Inn standard (we frequently use Holiday Inns for overnight stops), the waiting staff were courteous and friendly. The only improvement that we could suggest would be to look at the corridor carpets, they did seem a little 'tired' in places. Overall however, an excellent stay. Many thanks to all concerned.

I booked this hotel as part of the Paulton's Park break packages and we were not disappointed.
The hotel is clean and well run. Our children were catered for as soon as we arrived and provided with lovely colouring book packs in the restaurant. The children's buffet was exactly what was needed: chips, fish fingers, pizza etc. if wanted, but also salad, beans and pasta. The steak for me was cooked exactly how I ordered it and was delicious.
All of the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Our room was clean with plenty of space for 2 adults, 1 child and a baby in a cotbed.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
