Pro's-Rooms were large, beds were big & comfortable, there was a selection of pillows (firm, soft), all amenities were provided. We couldn't say enough about the staff - the people at reception and the people in the restaurant were lovely and so friendly.

We stayed here after a long drive visiting friends. The reception staff were very welcoming and the whole ambience of the hotel was good. We had an Executive Room which was very nice. We had a great night sleep. We went to the bar to have a drink but were disappointed by the barman and his attitude, he was mr grumpy. The wine was not much better. The welcome at breakfast was a breath of fresh air as was the staff. A great place to stay if you are heading to Southampton or Portsmouth to catch a... Read more

I am a regular at IHG properties as a platinum member, and I have to say this place has the best food i have tasted in any Crowne Plaza/Holiday Inn. The fillet steak was perfection, and the vegetable soup was delicious. Special mention to Victoria in the restaurant who was so polite and friendly. Lovely rooms (was slightly disappointed not to be upgraded) and staff are great. All in all an excellent stay.

To be honest I didn't have high expectations, I expected this to be another run of the mill hotel. I was initially impressed with the reception area and then also the other communal areas. The rooms were clean, spacious, quiet and modern. The staff were polite and helpful and there was plenty of free parking on site. The only downside is that this hotel is on the outskirts of Winchester (about 3 miles to the centre) - but then the price is competitive and the hotel and facilities are excellent.... Read more

Stayed for two nights on 1 June. Been to many Holiday Inns in the past in numerous cities but never stayed in one like this. Maybe it is a one off or perhaps I've just been unlucky with my choice of similar hotels in the past but this one more resembled a 4* hotel than a budget one. Spacious entrance and very polite welcoming staff on the front desk. Rooms very good standard and had everything you need.

Ideal for a spot close to Winchester with parking! The park and ride site is next door, please use it for Winchester as parking is poor in the City itself - one multi-storey has been closed for redevelopment. The hotel itself is obviously formulaic but the staff are all pleasant and the rooms comfortable. Only had the breakfast and it is well laid out and easy to use buffet style.

The location is a couple of miles outside of downtown Winchester and feels a little isolated. Like most hotels in the UK, the rooms are smaller than you would expect at a similar hotel in the US. They have a good but not great breakfast buffet. We had a good dinner in the hotel restaurant the first night of our stay.

Stayed here for one night. I was upgraded due to my IHG Reward status, which was nice, Disappointingly, breakfast started too late for my needs, so the hotel agreed to give me a credit towards dinner instead of breakfast, at my request. The rate was reasonable but it can be expensive if busy. The Executive room was not large but was adequate for one night. Two bottles of complimentary water, a chocolate bar and three items of fruit were provided. Good quality bathrobes but no slippers. Goo... Read more

This hotel is a little out of the way but it is relatively new, clean and efficient. Good for an overnight stay but that's about it. Must opt for the breakfast as there is no other option nearby. For a family travelling together, there are not too many options nearby as the older hotels in town cannot accommodate 2+1. Lacks excitement but as expected from a Holiday Inn.

My husband and I stayed here on July 2nd for one night. All the other hotels in Winchester were fully booked hence ended up in this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised.. We stayed in the Executive room, it was spacious enough, very clean, very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good. The staff at the bar and reception were friendly. It is not a luxury hotel but good value for money considering we booked on the same day.

Modern hotel with comfortable rooms. The staff were helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurant both nights and were very pleasantly surprised with the choice and quality of the food.

I've given this review a 5 star rating NOT because the stay was wonderful (as it would normally be) BUT because Marc the manager worked so hard put things right. The stay in itself was only really a 3 star due to quite a few negatives.

Really good high standard holiday inn. 2 issues, firstly there is absolutely no mobile signal (Vodafone) not that this is the hotels fault! We arrived quite late, managed to have a few drinks in the very nice bar. The 2nd issue being all the TV's in the hotel rooms where not functioning correctly, we where not told this at check in, when mentioned at check out, bad weather (lighting) had affected them the previous day, I wasn't too impressed. Other than this is a good hotel.

This is a great hotel. you are greeted as an old friend and the service is wonderful. If you're lucky enough to be served by Myles or Ashley then you are in for a treat. All the staff are brilliant here. They really make you feel at home and the food is very good. There is a wide selection, both meat and vegetarian and the bar has an extensive array. Nice ambiance, clean rooms...all good.

This hotel is very modern and comfortable with everything you'd expect from a holiday inn. The difference in this hotel is the service, the staff are very helpful and cannot do enough for you, especially in the bar/ restaurant area. A particular mention has to go to Will and Myles in the bar area, can't do enough to make me feel at home. I'll definitely be a returning customer, keep up the good work.

5th time here, rooms still fell modern and new, very comfy and quiet night sleep. Staff very helpful, lads in bar were great, especially Will & Myles...... very friendly and always smiling. Only issue is on price, average about £5 for a competition within a mile or so, this means you are a captive customer unless you take taxi into the town which costs about £8

We used this hotel as a base for attending a family wedding and associated celebrations. As you'd expect of a Holiday Inn, public areas and bedrooms are clean, spacious and functional.

The location is not handy for those without a car (nor not wishing to drive and park in town) although there is a bus into Winchester and Reception were helpful in ordering taxis.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night. The hotel was lovely and everyone was very helpful. The room service was really nice but a shame the side dishes were over priced for what you got. The entertainment in the room was ok but even tho it had a HDMI port on the TV I couldn't connect my laptop as you can't change it over to the HDMI channel. Over all it's a nice hotel but there is some little things that add up to bring it down a bit.

Mixed grill at £20 for 1 sausage, 1 lamb cutlet and 1/2 a ribeye steak is ridiculous, however nice it was! Ordered a side too, £4 for half a ciabatta of garlic bread?! Food was also a little cold although very tasty still. Will stay again, but definitely won't get robbed by the restaurant again!

A very plush holiday inn one of the nicest I've been too. Decor in reception is lovely. Paid extra for an executive room but fail to see what difference an executive room is to a standard room. Exec room was nothing short of what I would expect from a standard room. Emily on the front desk was very rude and unhelpful. Quite short and could do with some customer service training. She let the team down.

Whilst a little out of town, this is a good, modern, relatively new, Holiday Inn which benefits from good parking. The hotel is light and airy and the public rooms are large and comfortable. The bedrooms have all that you need for a comfortable night stay but it did take a bit of assistance to get the air conditioning / heating working. I had a very tasty bar snack in the evening and the breakfast buffet was very good in terms of both range and quality. A good hotel that I will use again whe... Read more

The building does not deserve a second look from the exterior and inside there in the distance is the cheerful and helpful receptionist. The lift goes down to floor minus 1- which a previous correspondent to Trip Advisor - called subterranean. In fact it is ground floor level... clever design taking one from the ground floor to the ground floor... The room 122 has twin double beds ... very little storage space .. and an adequate bathroom. Immediately turn off the noisy air conditioning but th... Read more

The hotel is modern and has a light and airy reception. The staff pleasant and a warm welcome. The disappointment was in the cleanliness of the cutlery both at dinner and breakfast the next morning. The dinner menu is good and the food well presented. However, the same could not be said for the breakfast, bacon greasy and not a pleasant taste.

Nice decor and comfortable beds. Not a good night sleep however as woken up several times by noisy guests returning to their rooms. Also told we had to pay for drinking water - none was provided in the room. This should be provided for free (especially when paying £300 a night!)

This hotel is our preferred choice for myself and my work colleagues who are often in the area. Over the years we have tried them all in Winchester. It is a bit out of town but this isn't a bad thing. They run a shuttle service which is useful. Modern and always clean and tidy and very well maintained. Reception staff very welcoming. Good bar menu.

We spent the weekend here, generally just to rest and recoup. We didnt eat in the restaurant, apart from breakfast which we really enjoyed. Large range of food and I might add the 2 different choices in bacon were great! Lovely sausages too. We were given a large room and we found the little extras helpful (water in the room etc). The hotel is around 7 minutes drive to central Winchester. 20 minutes to shopping in Southampton. Staff lovely.

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting Winchester. The hotel was very quiet on the nights we stayed, just a few guests and I think a corporate meeting taking place. Positives : Staff very friendly and welcoming. Clean and tidy. Large car park. A good range of food to choose from for breakfast. Negatives : Cannot open a window in room. Bed too soft. Room too business like. Food and drink expensive. No where nearby to go unless you take the car or pay for taxis. Enjoyed Winchester, highly recommend ... Read more

Spent a few days here and went for the dinner bed and breakfast option. We did have a few problems on the first night but the lengths the managers went to in correcting the them was second to none. We were upgraded, given free drinks, had a letter of apology and also visited several times by management to make sure all was well. The entire hotel is spotless and the communal areas incredibly spacious and inviting. Go you will not be disappointed. If something is wrong tell them, they want to ge... Read more

We stayed for 1 night as a base for a visit to the Winchester Christmas Markets. On arrival we were greeted by lovely, friendly receptionists and were told that our room was ready, when we had arrived 2 hours before the allotted check in time! So we were very happy about that! The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The decor was lovely and modern and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was clean with nice big towels and the shower was fantastic!! All of the st... Read more

This superbly located, spacious hotel is fantastic! Staff that go the extra mile, (special mention to Sarah the Sales Manager). Food that is good restaurant quality, I kid you not! I've never had better lamb. 64 bus just outside for a trip into the heart of Winchester. I had the best nights sleep I have had in weeks. Right next to the Science Centre which is fantastic for children and a short drive from a wealth of tourist 'musts'. Jane Austens House Gilbert White Museum incorporating the Oates... Read more

Easy access to M3. Only £8 taxi to city centre. Very welcoming staff. Top quality new rooms. Wonderful breakfast. Ample parking. This is a top quality Holiday Inn. The reception staff go out of their way to help you. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they upgrade their card holders automatically - well done Holiday Inn.
