great location, central and walking distance to the cathedral. I recomment the rooms overlooking the cathedral, the view from these rooms are very good and worth paying the upgrade fee. Staff are friendly and welcoming. I will go there again.

Approached my stay with heavy heart as the travel agent had talked it down,saying it warranted a lower star rating than what it had been given.The immediate environs were not encouraging ,a dull car park and skips at the rear of shops.However the interior was delightful ,traditional ,a touch of faded splendour in parts but clean and well appointed.The room...

We stayed at the Mercure Wessex in June 2014 for a weekend having not stayed there since 1979. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good but at £15.50 I thought expensive. Parking is very limited and spaces are small, there is also a £10 per night charge. The bedroom was clean and adequate but it... More

I was able to manage this but others any assume like I did that a mezzanine was about 6 stairs may struggle. Check in staff were friendly and the bedroom 148 was fine... More

I stayed at the Wessex hotel for 2 nights whilst I was on a training course. Check in and check out was quick and simple and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large, the bed was very big, and it was very well equipped - the fan helped immensely in the heat! The view from the bedroom... More

This hotel is very centrally located; close to the cathedral, college, shops and restaurants. The staff were at all times polite and efficient, although on our first full day the room was not made up until mid-afternoon. The main dining room is an attractive long room and the breakfasts are very good with a broad choice of eats from both... More

This hotel sits in the middle of Winchester, right next to the Cathedral. It's not the best Mercure we've stayed in, but the rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. No smoking area or outside area at the bar lost it points with us, but otherwise it was a comfortable place to spend an evening. Great... More
