Located right by the A3 just north of Portsmouth this modern and recently built hotel fitted all our needs. Rooms are good size, clean and well presented. If there is one downside is that it is not close to a lot of food outlets, although the hotel does do some food options.

The title says it all. The hotel has been refurbished recently and updated. The beds are excellent and the rooms are good sized. Didn't eat there but the meals looked good value for money. Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. The only fault was there was only one chair in the bedroom which meant one of us... More

There are no majorly bad things about this hotel. The service, what there was, was reasonable. It was clean and modern, yet I felt it lacked something. When we arrived we had to wait to be checked in as the desk was unattended and when we eventually attracted attention we were asked to wait while the receptionist served at the... More

This Holiday Inn is apparently a rebadged Hilton. This is reflected in the unexpected large size rooms. Since taking over the hotel, Holiday Inn has obviously spent well on the refurbishment. Rooms and public areas are modern. Breakfast was sumptuous and plentiful. An excellent stay although short.

We were very impressed. The staff were all brilliant, and nothing was too much trouble. The set up with the tea and coffee makes it easy, there's plenty of space and the room had all the mod cons. We had requested a sofa bed and it was made up already when we arrived. Plenty of parking, and a petrol station... More
