Lilacs B&B was a wonderful place. The rooms where very clean and well appointed. Minutes from the city centre. Our host Susan recommended a great pub "The King Alfred". Our host was very personable and provided a welcoming environment. The breakfast was excellent. Only down fall was there was not ensuite bathrooms. During our one night stay, only our 4... More

Thank you so much for the review. The one thing we would have liked to provide over the many years we have done "B & B" is en-suite rooms. We just do not have the extra space in our house, unfortunately, and we choose not to put wash basins in the bedrooms. However, we only have 2 guest bedrooms (1... More

I needed to stay overnight in Winchester as I was working there for 2 days. The lilacs delivered all that I needed and more .... Susan was extremely friendly and helpful, her son even helped me to sort out a problem with my iphone, thankyou! A very comfortable bed and an absolutely delicious breakfast. Only sorry I couldn't stay longer!

The standards of service, food and cleanliness were excellent. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and there was plenty of extra bedding provided. The breakfast was delicious, and the homemade jam and marmalade were a real treat. This lovely lady did everything she possibly could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We are returning in... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lilacs as we attending a family wedding in Winchester. The location offers a great alternative to staying in the city centre, with ideal road links. There is easy access within walking distance to local shops, parks and amenities. As for the B&B itself, we found it to be very homely and traditional accommodation.... More

Lovely owner who cannot do enough to ensure you are happy. Excellent breakfast, fresh fruit lovely with yoghurt, generous portions beautifully cooked. Rooms homely and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Good location for Winchester with parking. Will always stay here if visiting this area, why go elsewhere. Thanks Sue.

The moment I went in I felt at home ! Sue's hospitality and warmth made me feel part of the family. The room is decorated in an English cottage style. I couldn't but admire the little touches put here and there, and they made all the difference. In the room there's a DVD player as well as a television, a... More

We also enjoyed our stay, which was found at the last minute. We took up the two bedrooms and my daughter enjoyed making herself a hot chocolate at bed time. We awoke to a lovely hot breakfast and I enjoyed my english kippers (first opportunity). Our host was delightful and I recommend her and the Lilacs to anyone. Enjoy your... More

I was fortunate enough to get a late booking here when attending a conference, as the owner had been away for a few days and so had no bookings. The house is spotless, bed comfortable, breakfast great, (just as ordered) and Mrs Pell could not be more welcoming. I'll be returning with my wife at some point as Winchester looks... More
