This warm & charming B&B is a stylish & elegant 3 bedroom B & B in a very close walking distance from the cathedral, Winchester College and the town centre (previously owned by Alec Guinness'mum). The owner, John, is a charming & cultured man who gave sound advice and input on tourist sites and was happy to chat, lend books... More

I have read most of the reviews on here before and after I booked so here are my thoughts. Don't book this if you are looking for a palace - it is a home with clutter if you are fussy about decor also avoid. If you don't like a shared bathroom don't book it it is the people, who use... More

Prior to booking we read the reviews on this B & B and thought it was a great choice. However the only really good thing about it was its position and its parking. We were able to leave the car for the two days that we were there and walk easily to everywhere in Winchester. This was a very big... More

We are a family of 6 and as such it can be rather difficult to find accommodation to suit all our needs. John the owner went out of his way to help us with any request, we couldn't have asked for more. We found that his B&B was comfortable and homely and he cooks a great english breakfast!

I stayed one night at the B&B. John was a lovely guy who was very accommodating and could have not done anything more. I would go back and would recommend it to friends. In Winchester and want a home away from home.

My husband and I stayed at Wolvesey View this past August as we were touring the south of England. Though we arrived early, the owner, John, was still kind enough to let us in, make us tea, allow us to leave our bags, and spend time chatting with us. We then spent a lovely day in Winchester, touring around, and... More

I can appreciate the experience that Jade D had however I joined friends who had stayed for the four previous nights and found John the owner very friendly and accommodating. You are very much invited in to John's home if you stay here, John is a very thoughtful host. Winchester is a lovely town and Wolvesey View is only a... More

I'm a student and even I would never stay in this place again. The first night I ended up sleeping in the library on a day bed, Impressed much? No! There was books every where in the library, cables running all over the floor, newspapers stuffed away and just crap all over the place. The carpet was filthy. The second... More

Although we have not had much experience staying in B and B's in England and cannot make a fair comparison to others,however, we appreciate clean and simple accommodation, a comfortable setting in a central location. On all these points,the Wolvesey View B and B met the mark. We stayed in a family " yellow " room which was located in... More

Wolvesley Court is a rather quiet place right in the middle of Winchester. It is about 5 minutes walk to the city centre. The major tourist sites are within 5 to 10 minutes walk (at most). The rooms are nice and cosy and there is plenty of hot water, which seems to be a privilege in the UK rather than... More
