Alexi Hakim, IHG’s Chief Operating Officer for UK & Ireland, commented: ““I am very
excited about the opening of the Holiday Inn Salisbury-Stonehenge and am confident

the British Touring Car Championship,” he continued, “this hotel is ideally located
to host guests for the final this coming October at Thruxton.  However, above all,
the hotel’s incredible proximity to the delights of Stonehenge - one of the world’s
most famous UNESCO World Heritage sites and currently one of the candidates for the
new Seven Wonders of the World - will undoubtedly encourage visitors from all over
the world to enjoy its natural beauty.”
