Comfortable hotel in city centre

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Pros: Location
Business trip so not much to experience - just a one night stay. Arrived late and left early. Everything was fine and as expected.

Very convenient for the city centre

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Pros: The location.
Cons: Room wall needs painting, either the carpet needs a good clean or replacing rooms 141 and 143.
Location: Plenty to do nearby, simply check with the local tourist information for current events.
Lovely stay, however the room wall had lots of paint patches were the paint work had been touched up and a very unsightly stains on the carpet. Otherwise the room although only looks out onto another walled area was very comfortable. Breakfast was overall lovely, but we did have an undercooked sausage. Dispite the faults I would stay there again.

Gediegenes Hotel im Stadtzentrum

Posted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: Die ruhige Lage und die getrennten Betten.
Cons: Nein
Location: In einer Nebenstraße, kurz von Fußgängerzone und Kathedrale entfernt. Der Weihnachtsmarkt ist offenbar legendär, die Kathedrale ohnehin wertvoll.
Trotz zunächst überfülltem Parkplatz wurde ein weiterer hoteleigener Parkplatz in unmittelbarer Nähe durch das freundliche Personal sofort gezeigt. Das Hotel liegt im Stadtzentrum, wenige Geh-Minuten von Kathedrale und weiteren Sehenswürdigkeiten entfernt; dennoch ist es sehr ruhig gelegen. Der Barbetrieb am Abend störte keineswegs - trotz des letzten Freitags vor Weihnachten.

Christmas visit

Posted Dec 22, 2014
Pros: Its a nice mix of old style hospitality and revamped furnishings. The breakfasts are also very good.
Cons: The rooms in the old building are a bit noisy and hot but difficult to see what can be done about that !
Location: Superb location, right in the heart of Winchester, and yet perfectly quiet !
Winchester is one of the best UK towns to visit pre-christmas. Compact enough to walk everywhere and lively enough day and night. After reading some mixed reviews of this hotel I was a little unsure about booking it, but no problem, it was all good. The 'new' wings of the hotel are a lillt soulless but take one of these rooms; they are more spacious, better equipped and quiter than the main (old) building

Fantastic location.

Perfect location for a quick break. Managed to park early as we arrived before out check-in time. Hassle free

Nice hotel, great location

Posted Dec 19, 2014
Nice hotel, really comfortable bed. Only negatives the room was too warm even with the windows open all night, our view was crap, and we only had one bath towel... But otherwise its a lovely hotel, seemed clean, great location. Would recommend.

Great position in a very pretty city

Posted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: Position, excellent roomin quiet location and parking (but at a cost)
Cons: Staff struggled to meet needs with so many attending functions.
Location: Winchester very pretty., cathedral worth a visit anytime, shops good and. Plenty of excellent restaurants. Close to south coast so good stopover point
Stayed at hotel before and wanted to visit Christmas market again. Very busy as Christmas parties and events and whilst dinner in the restaurant was good the service was slow and a little disjointed. Stayed in refurbished room and a great improvement from3 years ago, huge bed, excellent facilities and quiet location away from the functions. Fantastic position, close to everything by 5 minute walk. Car parking limited and first come first served, £10 overnight charge a surprise as no charge previously, but worth it fir access to car. Overall a perfect place fir a Winchester break but better at quieter times of the year.
