I picked this hotel because of its location on the M3 and my need to drop off a car early in the morning at London Heathrow, following my stay there. Only after exploring Winchester the afternoon before checking in at the hotel, did I realize that the property can only be accessed in direction FROM London to Winchester off the M3. In order to get there from Winchester, you have to drive past it by almost 10miles and then make a U-turn. The following morning, driving to London, you basically have to repeat this silly exercise. Hotel is located within a service station off the M3, not a regular on/off exit as you would expect in the U.S. The hotel itself was just fine, but the awkward location is just ludicrous. Don't pick this hotel if you plan to continue your journey in direction towards London.
