Great hotel in the centre of town

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: It wasn't a huge clone!
Cons: We would have liked tea and cake on our arrival at the hotel at 5pm but couldn't find anyone to serve us.
Location: Being in the centre of town you are within easy reach of everything site, restaurants etc. We jogged through town and down by the weir - stunning.
The hotel was very convenient being in the centre of town but at the same time quiet so perfect for our needs.

Ideal for local attractions

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Only paid £34 per person including breakfast for our 1 night stay, a bargin for a clean and historic hotel in the middle of the great English City of Winchester . Our room had a good size bed and was very comfortable,breakfast was good and we shall return .

Fine if you don't need WiFi or TV

Posted Aug 30, 2014
I stayed three nights, and each night the WiFi didn't work and the tv was fritzy. I was there for work so this was a major problem. The staff were nice but eventually it came out that the managers were not responding. Had I not prepaid I would have left. This kind of experience encourages me to not only not stay at this hotel, but to not use Expedia or any other prepay service.

Lovely hotel and great location within the city

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Everything was excellent
Location: A great city with too much to do and see in a 2 night stay! We will be back. Eateries a bit hit an miss - avoid Loche Fyne! Very poor food!
Faultless stay in a wonderful city. The hotel was excellent and there was nothing we could fault - nice gardens, rooms, location and bar prices that were cheaper than the local pubs!

Quaint hotel with lovely garden

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: The rooms overlooking the private garden are the best, very quiet and quaint. The buffet style breakfast made the morning much more relaxed.
Cons: There could be more people on reception during busy hours - check in and check out.
Location: The location was extremely central
A very romantic get-away for any couple, it really was a lovely place to stay and very central. There is not much parking in the hotel but plenty of larger parking buildings near-by. Buffet style breakfast meant you could come and go as you please and have as much as you liked although the quality could have been improved.

Friendly, quality hotel in centre of Winchester

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Central position, lovely building and comfortable rooms and efficient friendly staff.
Cons: Plug in sink was a problem and water would not empty at all at times....a little expensive to park overnight at £10 I felt.
Location: Winchester has a very attractive and interesting shopping centre, some of which is pedestrianized. There are river walks and lovely countryside.
Enjoyed a night in this comfortable hotel in the centre of Winchester. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was excellent. Breakfast was buffet style and everything you would expect in a hotel of this quality. Beautiful garden and bar area to relax in. This is not our first stay and we will certainly come again.

Excellent Location

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Hotel has improved considerably since last staying here. The room's make over and upgrading to modern standards have considerably improved the experience of staying in this hotel. Coupling this with the quietness of the rooms and the pleasant outlook over the garden. Its central location makes it ideal for visiting attractions in the town , restaurants etc.

Good location

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: Location & Bed
Cons: See above
Good location in centre of town ,nice garden & terrace. Room was well furnished with an excellent bed .There was an unfortunate smell in the room (which was not universal)possibly from the cleaners cupboard next door. Breakfast was generous but on our first day it took 3 requests to get Tea and Toast The third request being quite irritable.( the dining room was not crowded and at least 4 other tables came in & got their tea & toast after us. Following days were fine (different staff)

Potentialy a great hotel.

Posted Jul 29, 2014
The hotel has the potential to be great however due to poor organisation it falls short. The good bits are that the room was one of the most comfortable rooms I've stayed in with a large comfy bed and huge bathroom. Room could do with a fridge and air con but that wasn't too much of a problem. The hotel is in the heart of Winchester and you are less than five minutes from Winchester cathedral. The staff are all friendly and will help in any way they can. Now the bad bits. The bartender in the evening although a really nice friendly guy was obviously not used to working behind the bar as he had to check the measures and then couldn't find the drinks on the till. The following morning at breakfast there were four members of staff working but none of them seemed to have a set role they seemed to be wondering round and no one took charge of anything. My full English breakfast was anything but full as most of the buffet was empty and not being re filled. The second morning was better but that morning there was one poor lad on his own. He managed a better service than the four had managed the previous morning. The only other issue for me was out room key card failed to work twice on both of these occasions I walked to reception for them to reset the card and both times it failed to work so I had to go back to reception again for them to change the key and I could get into my room. The hotel could be great but they need to get organised to realise their potential.
