I would rate this place to be the best place to stay at Winchester. Very comfortable and clean large rooms. The complimentary breakfast spread is very good - though very limited options for vegans. Location of hotel is very good and close to the railway station and not too far from downtown area - in fact if you can walk... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review although I am questioning whether this was a review of THIS hotel given that I have certainly never received this comment before and equally all our main lines have a voicemail facility whereas you suggest that the calls were not answered by anyone or anything, which would not have been the case...

The hotel is well placed near the railway station and easily accessed. The room we had was well appointed, always clean and very comfortable. While the staff were at all times helpful and friendly , both the breakfast and service at the bar were slightly chaotic. This needs improving as it clearly caused irritation to many folk We were fortunate... More

Booked this Hotel the night before to break our journey going down to Torquay for the weekend. The room was very good and the location of the Hotel was ideal for a walk into Winchester. Didn't eat there at night but the breakfast in the morning was very good and the staff were also very good. Only downside was that... More

We had a one night stay at this hotel as part of our anniversary. There's plenty of parking for the hotel and it is quite fairly priced. The hotel is presented nicely and the reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a club room and would thoroughly recommend paying the extra to upgrade from a classic. The room...

I stayed at the Winchester Hotel following a meeting with suppliers in Winchester. There is ample parking at the rear of the hotel, but if you park in front, it is a pay and display. The whole ambience of the hotel once in through the front doors is one of welcome from all of the staff. Booking in was easy,... More

Ample parking with private hotel parking and public parking outside hotel. Easy walk into town centre. The swimming pool is not a pool one can swim in .. Just a relaxing pool. Food at hotel disappointing not worthy of the 4 star. Rooms comfortable but our friends room was burgled even though it was on the first floor, and they... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review which unfortunately contains many factual inaccuracies. I am of course aware of the matter you have referred to given that (and not wishing to `tempt fate` in any way) the hotel experiences `zero` crime and as such this was particularly `memorable` for us. Despite this each of our guest rooms are supplied... More

This was just a quick night away from home to enjoy some relaxation. The room was quite nice, comfortable, but a bit dark which made it look a little outdated. The spa leaves much to be desired- the pool isn't big enough and the steam room and sauna are far from luxurious. The showers need to be changed down there... More

I stayed at the Winchester Hotel for a short weekend break in early July. Rooms are lovely and decorated in a contemporary style. It did take me a while to find the hairdryer - hidden in a side compartment of the desk in the room. Bathroom amenities were a bit on the light side. No body lotion and combined shampoo/conditioner.... More

From the very start of our planning Charlotte (events lady) could have not been more accommodating, not pushy and listened to what we wanted.
