Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IBMER2015 Nice Hotel for Visiting IBM Hursley
I booked this hotel for a meeting at IBM Hursley. Compared to other hotels in the Winchester area, Holiday Inn is superb. The rooms are brighter and more spacious, and one gets the welcome feeling that you are staying in a modern facility. The only concern is the fact that the hotel is a bit far away from any place that is walkable, and as an American, I did not want to drive in UK on the "wrong" side of the road. However, taxis were readily available and convenient to commute back/forth from IBM and the Winchester area. The restaurant menu for dinner had somewhat limited choices and the orders have rather small portions which I found somewhat disappointing. The lunch/bar menu, which is available at dinner time also, if you ask for it, had a lot more selections and they had much more substantial portions. I guess the dinner menu was designed for people who came to a fancy place and wanted to impress a date, while the lunch menu is meant more for hungry businessmen who have arrived after a long flight/drive.
Overall, compared to the relatively poor quality of IBM approved hotels in the Winchester area, I would definitely choose to stay in the Holiday Inn for all my future visits. The other IBM hotels in the area are usually in old buildings, and as a result their rooms are small and dark, and their wi-fi quality is miserable, not to say expensive. In comparison, the Holiday Inn wifi was complimentary as IHG rewards member and worked wonderfully. Among all the various hotels I have experienced in the Winchester area, I would definitely rate Holiday Inn as the best one around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DH47 Very friendly staff
The hotel has an excellent location, close to Winchester and the M3. There is ample free car parking. The public areas are bright and spacious. The rooms are clean and comfortable. An excellent breakfast with varied choice. Above all, the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.

We really like this hotel -- for us, it's one of the best that we've stayed in.
Good location, good room, good restaurant and the staff are great
Had a slight issue with the room ventilation during the night, but that was probably me not reading the instructions properly, as I was half-asleep!
Will be very happy to return to the hotel next time we have a need to visit the area

I've here before and it was as good as the last time.
The only thing that spoilt it, was another guest on the floor above my room stomping about with big boots on.

Comfortable stay, room had everything we needed, although bed did dip in the middle.
Food and drink good. our eleven year old ate free which was a plus.
