night away

Arrived at hotel at 10.30 to leave my bags in storage or Check it if possible. Was told check in at 11 if I wanted to check in it was £25extra for checking in 30 mins early. Declined and checked in at 11am. Was told I had to pay £50 pound deposit even though I had hotel paid for in full via visa card on web. I found this odd and wheniI said to manager it was paid for in full already she just looked at me and said it was policy. I reluctantly handed over £50 which left me £30.00 for transport to Winchester and back as well as to buy food for the day The room was nice and the bed lovely and comfortable with nice shower and plenty of stations on the TV. I went down to the bar area to see if the football on TV and was told they did not have sky sports in the hotel so spent the night up in the room watching television. Following morning checking out was told my room had to be checked before deposit given back. It was like being 10 and not allowed out to play if your room untidy. Got deposit back after breakfast and went on my way.

Nice and Handy Location

Had difficulty logging onto WiFi, all it seemed to want to do was direct me to the hotel web site. When going to breakfast there was a cue which was that long I decided against waiting!! This was a first in any hotel I have stayed at over the years. Must do better in that department.

Leisure Travel

The hotel staff was professional and efficient. The room clean and adequate size for two adults. The breakfast was basic. Did not wait in line. There is a restaurant/bar in the hotel and several places within a short drive to eat.

Great quality accommodation and very comfortable

We were staying for one night as a stopover on the way to our final destination and having stayed at other brands of 'express' hotel, we were really please with the decor, the cleanliness of the room, the quality of the bed and the peacefulness overnight. We've been to some places where the staff just don't seem to care, but everything was in its place and the staff were friendly and helpful - it just spoke of quality.

It is what it is

The hotel itself is relatively new and the rooms are clean but 'stark'. The phone reception is none existent. I was there on business and could not be contacted by mobile while in the room. You can get a signal if you want to stand outside reception with the smokers. Does'nt seem to matter what the network is either, most of them don't work! If you think you can get round this by using the internet, then you can pay at the desk for 1,6 or 24 hours. I think the fees they charge for this are expensive and the 'hi-speed' internet connection is anything but! Breakfast is minimal at best. Cereal, bacon, toast, yogurt, pastries and drinks. It's enough to get you going in the morning. I did not eat in the restaurant, as the wait was up to 1 hour most nights (I stayed there 6 nights) and we just did not have time to wait. The car park seems to get very full, even though it is quite large. The location of the hotel is good for the nearby shops and fast food outlets. However, it is adjacent to the cricket ground and on match days (or nights) traffic is very very heavy in the area and it can take the best part of 45-60 mins to get to the hotel from the nearby motorway. At the end of the day, this is a Holiday Inn 'Express', so you get what you pay for. I do think that other lower end price hotels do it better.

If you can get a room on the upper floors facing the front of the hotel, your phone reception may be better!!
