The hotel needs refurbishment but the staff were, in the main, excellent (especially in the bar). It has a fantastic location near the cathedral and high street but, be aware, that there is a nightclub next door which kept us awake and there was no possibility of another twin room. It also had no complimentary Wifi which should be a... More

I stayed for one night at the Mercure Winchester Hotel whilst on business. Parking is limited so get there early to secure a space, and is charged at £10 per night. Bearing in mind that a magnificent cathedral is opposite this hotel, the design of the Mecure is ugly and dated. The interior could do with some refurbishment and so... More

Dear andy67186334, Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review following your recent stay at Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel. The hotel was built fifty years ago based on studies of American and Scandinavian architecture, with the intention of blocking the unsightly views from the Cathedral of the Market lane houses that have since been removed.

Winchester has the most amazing Cathedral to see even if you aren't religious, it is breath taking and well worth looking at the stained glass windows. The shops still keep their "boutique" feel to them. A lovely weekend retreat. And a great place to start and end a walk from.

Stayed here recently for work, location is great being in the centre of Winchester. Hotel was comfortable and staff were friendly. I think the bar could do with some variety in Ales then I might have stayed there rather than go to a local bar!

Stayed for a weekend while visiting friends. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Had requested extra pillows which were catered for. The location was excellent, close to cathedral, restaurants but not too noisy. Room was clean and a good size though a bit cool until you turned the electric heater on.
