“Good in parts!”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Very much 'the curate's egg'! Service was polite and pleasant. Room was clean. Some of the room was definitely 'tired' and not up to the standards of some other Days Inns. One very strange minus was the inability to supply complimentary biscuits because "we haven't received a supply".

Room Tip: Check on the complimentaries!

Clean, tidy and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. After a bad experience at another hotel, we returned here and will again.

While I was checking in on Monday, my wife was still at the door and was alarmed when a rat
ran towards her. This was followed by a group of rats running just feet from the entrance.
When told about this, the receptionist said that the hotel was aware of the rats, and there was a guy who came every month to see about them. Judging by the pack running around, he is not doing a very good job. Because the entrance of the hotel was close to the service station restaurant bins, the rats were having a field day. My wife got very little sleep that night, being afraid that the rats were already in the hotel. Also, we were most definitely put off eating in the restaurant, so left early to breakfast elsewhere.

Room Tip: The other services don't really matter. If the hotel has rats, you wouldn't want to go ther...

Stayed here for a weekend so we could explore Winchester. The room was very clean and tidy, and the beds were really good. The best part of the hotel was its unlimited and free wifi, perfect for those who need access to the internet. The facilities on the site were really helpful at all hours of the day, although Burger King was more expensive than in other areas. The only downside to this hotel, is that it is out of the way if you are returning from Winchester. However, it is perfect for long trips on the motorway and for people heading into Winchester itself.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the building (ground floor) often have other guests walking past on nature walk...

Was greeted in car park by a giant rat! We'd paid £10 per night in a deal in the mirror, have stayed at several other days inns using same offer and this is the one I'm least keen to revisit! Staff not very visible, no real hoapitality offered on arrival...this is very unusual as all other days inn staff have always been interested, attentive and keen to get to know why we're travelling, what our plans are etc...our greeting here barely mustered a few words. Room was comfortable but basic, shower was tempremental and, as others have said, the journey from Winchester involves driving several miles past hotel to then double back on yourself. Would only stay here again if everywhere else was booked up.
