          The hotel exceed my expectations basd on my prior knowledge of the brand. Much improved. Would certainly consider Holiday Inns in future.

          The Breakfast was very good although it was the cost was an addition to our room cost which we felt should have been inclusive to the room rate we paid. Additionally the hotel did not appear to be very busy and therefore we would have expected a better room rate below the £60 paid.

        • Group of friends

          Visiting friends and family plus Chichester for sights and shopping

          Restaurant menu very limiting

          Breakfast was excellent and the hotel was well equipped. It has a gym, pool and restaurant, although we only ate breakfast there as evening meals seemed a bit pricey. We ate at a local beefeater, and frankie and bennys instead.The hotel is quiet and comfortable, we shared a room with double and single beds, the single bed was comfortable enough. I'd recommend this hotel as a suitable venue between Porstmouth/Southampton - we used it as a base for Goodwood Festival of Speed.

          Ease of car parking, close to reception and ground floor rooms Choice of healthy fruit at breakfast.

          The room I was given on the first night was exremely noisy (101). You could hear everyone laughing in the bar area until gone midnight. You could hear people gathered in the lobby area next to the stairs next to the room from 5am onwards and also you could hear people going up and down the stairs.The first time I used the toliet it had not been flushed from the previous user. It was impossible to get the internet to work on the first night in my room. I went to reception and was told to phone an 0800 telephone number. I returned to my room, phoned the number and was told it was nothing to do with them - the receptionist should be able to sort it. I went back to reception, and was told there was nothing the receptionist could do so I was forced to give up.which was extremely frustrating as my own dongle would not work in the hotel either because the hotel sysytem obviously prevented that. The next morning at breakfast I was one of the last to arrive at about 9am. The girl was laying up tables for later. I was shown to a table full of someone else's breakfast waste despite all but one table being completely empty.The girl grudgingly allowed me to go elsewhere. The breakfast was good but after I had eaten I realised that I had not had any coffee which was no where to be seen. I asked the girl who siad "Oh - I forgot to ask you". After making my order she continued to lay up tables for at least another 3/4 minutes before bothering to go and get some coffee. She then got a jug of milk (almost empty) from the table I was originally offered and plonked it down on my table. I was offered a room change for my second night (which was much better) but felt uncomfortable at asking for this change because the hotel was full and it was obviously an inconvenience for them.

          Comprehensive television/Internet packages available.

          The bath in the executive room was for a disabled access room and not very comfortable/relaxing if able bodied.

          A very plessant overnight stay as a break in a long car journey.

          The room was excellent . It would be nice to have a selection of fruit and earl grey tea bags. As well as the usual tea and coffee. Just a minor point.

          Food very good.

          Bed too hard. Had to report two matters re room, which should have been sorted out by cleaners/maintenance before my visit.

          The restuarant was very good with a good service a food that could not be faulted in anyway. We stayed at the hotel as it was my Dads 60th birthday and we took him to buallieu so had a very pleasant stay here beforehand.

          9.6

          The staff were very good and helpful and the overall stay was very enjoyable. The rooms and breakfast were first class. The staff were excellent and understaning with my two small kids. We decided to extend to 2 days which was easy to arrange and staff were excellent.

        • Older travelers

          Friendly receptionist on our arrival

          Steam room was not operational and ceiling hatch to loft was open in room when we returned from bar 11 pm

          We found this holiday inn an ideal location for our visit and will use it again. It was clean and welcolming and the breakfast was second to none.

          Breakfast

          I tried to book through adjoining rooms for family. I did get rooms next door to each other but not walk through/adjoining.

        • Older travelers
          8.4

          Quality of breakfast good.

          Breakfast staff poor - tables poorly laid, had to request tea again that didn't arrive. Bar food expensive.
