Then head to the hugely group friendly Holiday Inn Winchester, on the fringes of the South Downs and just a five minute drive from the historic city centre.

Fresh from a recent £2.5 million refurbishment, there’s much to like about this plush modern hotel that welcomes groups keen to explore all the local city has to offer, from its much-loved Christmas market in the cathedral grounds to its café culture and proximity to the South Downs National Park.

Free car parking, easy access by train and 130-plus rooms all add up to an easy win for group travel organisers looking for a smart place to stay – complete with spa. And, as a caffeine addict, first impressions for the Group Travel World team were good on a recent stay: any hotel with a Starbucks in its lobby is a winner in our book…
