We can not thank the Holiday Inn at Winchester enough for all their hard work and organisation on our Wedding day. We booked the wedding 18 months ago and Amy was fantastic & brilliantly organised, taking all the stress away from planning a wedding. Nothing was too much trouble on any questions we had. On the day ALL of the staff at the hotel were brilliant, Rachel was lovely reassuring me on how the day would go and offering me valuable advise for the ceremony. Tay and his team were exceptional, making sure each and one of our guests were happy, including dietary requirements and children's meals. All of our guests have since complemented the hotel on their hospitality, food and service. The whole experience was fabulous, making the best day of our lives so memorable.

Rachel and Adam
A big thank you to you and the team for a great wedding day on the 1st June. We both had a brilliant time and lots of people said how they thought that the venue was a good choice. We also both wanted to extend a special thanks to James who was our main man on the day. We noticed, as did some of our other guests, how helpful, expeditious and courteous James was whether it was helping setup our dvd system, rearranging the tables or cleaning up bubbles from the dance floor to ensure there were no slippery first dances! We were very impressed with the overall service that James delivered before and during the event.
Kayley and Andy
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and all your organising, it was a fab day and wish I could do it all again :) Just wanted to let you know that all the staff were fantastic they couldn't of been more helpful. All the guests and even the photographers even said how lovely all the staff were. Please thank them all for us.
Jason and Jo
We both thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day thank you! It was so nice not to have to worry about anything as your staff had everything in hand. Everyone loved the food and the venue and there was nothing more we could have asked for to make our day more special. All the staff were fantastic, but there was one young lady who really stood out. Unfortunetly we did not manage to catch her name. She was serving table 3 where there were 4 young children who were being typical children and were quite loud. She was fantastic with them, everytime she went to the table she would engage with them and help to keep them entertained. Please pass on our thanks to all the team! Thank you for all your help Fran you were a great help in preparing our wedding and we could not have done it without you.
Lisa and Adam
We were so pleased with how well everything went for our wedding breakfast and reception. Everyone made us feel so relaxed and there was no pressure to keep to the time schedule. Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was and we really loved it. You've been an amazing coordinator and I'm so pleased you took over the plans to help us with our wedding! You have been highly recommended to many friends who are thinking of getting married and you're an absolute asset to the hotel!
Amy and Simon
Thank you so much for all you done the day went as planned and very smoothly. All the guests commented on how lovely venue and food was and think more party's may be coming your way. Thank you for a wonderful day I'm a very happy wife.
Claire and Andy
Please also extend my thanks to the staff who served us last Saturday - excellent service and it was superb. I had feedback from guests, they love your food! So compliments to the chef! They love the ambiance of the hotel too. Some didn't know about how lovely the hotel from the inside is. Some even didn't know that we've got Holiday Inn in Winchester! Some were considering to hold their life events in your hotel too. Anyway, the room was also clean and tidy. Your staff were polite and helpful. So basically, my guests and the newlyweds felt comfortable and relaxed during the wedding. And from what I have gathered, they (including Andy and I) were generally happy with the turn out.
Lisa and Darin
A huge thank you to you and all the other staff at the Holiday Inn, that made our day so special.
Simon Keisha
My wife and I would like to say a massive thank you for all you did in making our wedding so special. We appreciate all your help in making the planning process easier. Everyone commented on how much they like the hotel and the atmosphere and a few are event looking into holding their weddings at your hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful but we would like to say a big thank you to the barman/nightporter who went above and beyond in making sure our guests had everything they needed to enjoy their weekend. He was very much appreciated well in to the early hours on both nights. Like our guests, Keisha and myself have nothing but good and complimentary comments about yourself and your hotel and will wholeheartedly recommend your hotel to family and friends. No doubt we will be back again for weekends away.
Mr and Mrs Webster
Thank you for helping to make our wedding day so special, we both had an amazing day. Many thanks!
Rachel and Noel
I really wanted to send you a email saying thank you so much. Everyone who works at the Holiday Inn Winchester was brilliant, worked very hard to make our day special, and we had many lovely comments from our wedding guests about how lovely the hotel is, how professional the staff are and everyone said how nice the food was. One guest even said to me that was the nicest food she has ever had at a wedding before! Sam was lovely, he was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He made the day stress free and made sure it all ran smoothly even when we were running behind on schedule and probably not making everyones lives easy. And a big thank you to the Chef's, the food was amazing, it looked amazing and tasted even better!!! So, thank you Caroline, it really means alot to us for all your hard work, the day was perfect and couldn't have gone better!! I will recommend the hotel to everyone who listens and i will definately use the hotel again! Please could you pass our thanks on to everyone who was involved.
