    Individual guest reviews

    • Family with children
      10.0

      Vey friendly and efficient. The room was lovely and comfortable and it's in such a good position for visiting the City's attractions.

      Nothing at all.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      We would describe this hotel as 'shabby genteel'! Perfectly comfortable for a short stay, staff were very friendly and the dinner we had one night in the restaurant was excellent.

      The bathroom needed updating.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      The location, the quality of the full English breakfasts, the condition of the garden, the tranquility of the hotel athmosphere.

      the quality of the bathroom was poor.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      All staff extremely helpful especially the head waiter in the restaurant. We were lucky and had a room overlooking the garden which was very quiet and although we paid about thirty pounds more for an executive double could not see any difference to our friends cheaper room. The hotel had an excellent location for rambling around the city.

      Room was rather tired and did not reflect the rather high cost of the accommodation. The car park was a positive for a city centre location, however it was difficult finding a space.

    • Older travelers

      Room 102 nice and airy. Quiet despite being near centre of town.

      Breakfast mighty pricey!

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      We only stayed one night but the room was far more than we expected. Lovely bathroom and the most comfortable nights sleep in a hotel for ages.

      room was chilly - turned up the thermostat on the radiator and the heat didn't come on. next morning we were told we should have turned it to maximum (10) and then it would have!

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Location.

      Car parking - very cramped for size of hotel. Had a room in recently refurbished Parchment Suite of rooms - lighting in the room very poor no central room light and only one bedside lamp so reading difficult; one bedside cabinet only; no drawers for clothes or to store items; no bathroom cabinet for toiletries and bathroom very cramped. However, bed very comfortable.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      We had read some of the comments about the refurbishment so were a bit worried about what to expect but our room was excellent. being able to park was a bonus as we were able to use the parking after we had checked out. The parking could be tight though. Did not have breakfast as we went to a local cafe. Would definately stay again.

    • Couple
      10.0

      It was our wedding anniversary and we were surprised by a card left in our room from the staff. The room was extremely clean with good decor.The room was very comfortable. The hotel is ideally situated to explore the history,shop and eat out,all within walking distance,yet tucked away to not be noisy.

    • Single
      6.4

      Location - city centre location and close to good restaurants, the cathedral etc.

      I booked room only (£85 per night) and breakfast cost another £13. Very over-priced for what it was. Luckily, local cafes open early!

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Central location, for our needs.

      The size of the car park, to small for the amount of people using the hotel either as paying guest or public use of facilities such as the bar conference rooms ect.

    • Single
      9.6

      Location , near the Cathedral and the lovely parts of Winchester.The Garden, the breakfast and very pleasant staff.

    • Single
      8.2

      I was a bit aprehensive about staying after I had read the negative reports, however I found the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroon were clean, and apart from creaking floors upstairs, I have nothing negative to say about the room.

      Suggest an upper room due to the pounding of feet from above - or baby elephants had checked in!

    • Single
      5.8

      Central location. In site parking.

      Public rooms in reasonable order but upstairs decor and fittings tired and frayed. Room lighting feeble.

    • Single
      8.2

      I liked that this was a well located hotel right in the in the centre of the city of Winchester with welcoming and helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms and a nice buffet breakfast.
