    Great location. Comfortable, spacious, well appointed room.

    Inadequate car-parking. Layout of bays is very poor, lots of space lost. Cannot understand the need to make a separate charge for parking, the price of the room should cover it. At breakfast, staff were slow to keep hot food topped-up.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The staff are very friendly and professional, and provide an excellent level of service.

    Rather expensive!

    Good location for Winchester shopping and Cathedral. Good value for money.

    Room about due redecorating, views not that interesting when not face Cathedral.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Its location was great, the general ambience was relaxing. We travelled with our 10 year old grandson who thought the room was lovely and loved sitting in the bar - he thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    It was all great.

  • Older travelers

    It was our silver wedding anniversary. We had a fabulous stay at the hotel. It was luxurious, clean, friendly, beatifully decorated and spacious room, fantastic breakfast and the hotel has amazing views of Winchester cathedral and it's grounds. We couldn't fault it!!

    There was nothing we didn't like about the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The location of the hotel was excellent, right next to the high street and cathedral close which meant we could walk to everything that we wanted to visit. Hotel staff were particularly helpful, friendly and professional.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The hotel staff were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, we were greeted by geniune smiles and made to feel very welcome. The location was a very close second though, our room overlooking the Cathedral was a wonderful treat.

    The bathroom was tired looking and in need of a refurb. The toilet was far too close the wall.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Helene, very welcoming and very helpful at reception desk. Thomas (night manager) V. kind to an old lady in the night (not me!). At first wouldn't let me into the restaurant 9.25pm but then made accommodation for us. All staff there then helpful, especially Roy.

    Having to pay for parking - but Winchester has many parkers.

    Friendly and helpful staff - lent us an umbrella ,for example..

    A very big spider ran across the carpet when we first came into the room. And I mean , very big. It went under the bed but I kept quiet about it otherwise, well you know ........... the whole night could have developed into some desperate arachnid chase with certain people jumping at shadows and lying trembling with anticipation,but of all the wrong kind. So, if any one checks into that room ,and I won't say any more about it but the hotel will know,.......,

    Excellent breakfasts

    Car parking unsatisfactory - and one had to pay

  • Group of friends
    8.0

    Its location and the fact that there were rooms available. Excellent location. Very good breakfast in a pleasant dining room.

    The Wi Fi charge - it is free in most of the pubs in the area.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Thwe staff and location are great, the resturant is very good and reasonable value for money

    The place needs decorationg! Especially the bedrooms.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Clean & Tidy. Good Location

    Not worth the £100+ we paid for the room and thats without breakfast!

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Excellent location next to cathedral

    Poor standard of room decoration. Room in drastic need of refurbishment, peeling wallpaper, black scuff marks on walls. No air conditioning made room and corridors too warm. This is a very dated late 60s early 70s type building. What a shame it is in such a prime location in the middle of a beautiful area of the city.
