Understandably a historic property however rooms and communal areas decor not to my taste. Very old fashioned. Room was very dusty, radiators filled with thick layers of dust, same applied to the extractor fan in the bathroom. Housekeeping did not refill or replace toiletries despite making our room up during our 2 night stay (as expected of a 4 star). Breakfast wait staff and reception were friendly, but those manning the bar less so. Enquired if they were still open one evening and had the door shut in my face. Buffet breakfast ok, but would have much preferred cooked to order. Convenient location for visiting family but will try elsewhere next time.

Difficult to find the hotel as it’s on a very narrow road on a one-way system. Staff helpful; rooms very clean and well stocked

Comfy bed, some friendly staff but some not so much, soundproofing not great. Great location. A better choice in the lower mid range, but wouldn't stay again in a hurry.

The hotel is in the centre of the town easy walks. There is a car park, but they don't advertise it. We had stayed on Sunday night when Xmas Market was on.and traffic was bad, had to park 30 mins away from the hotel and walk. There wasn't any water in tge room to drink as no any glasses for water. It wasn't a toilet brush as well. Shower was working great. Comfy bed. Basic room.

The secure parking is important to us, but it is disappointing that they now charge £12 per night for it. It actually says £10 on their website and it used to be free! The bedroom was comfortable and quite roomy. The restaurant food was fine, but we nearly didn't get a table for dinner or breakfast as we did not know you have to book a specific time at reception...or else!

Broken water system but no reduction in rates
Arrived late afternoon on Tuesday We had no hot water from late on Tuesday evening resulting in us not being able to shower or hair watch etc before going to a 9.45 graduation Sadly I had already paid for 3 garden rooms so couldn’t raise a discount on our stay No safe in these rooms Breakfast which is £17 unless you pre book it used tinned oranges/ grapefruit etc No cold hams or cheeses and strangely no menu on the table to choose items that aren’t on the buffet Staff were pleasant enough and helpful

There were very few staff visible at the hotel during our 5 night stay. With no lift, luggage assistance would have been appreciated. We were concerned that the hotel was so open to the public. With no staff visible upon entry, anyone could have entered any part of the building. The location of the hotel made it easy to walk throughout Winchester.
