Disappointed that they charge you to stay in the hotel car park,would except it from a budget hotel not a 5* hotel, we stayed there the same time last year and there was not charges them.. I feel the car park should be free after all people are spending money in the hotel... very disappointed.

I stayed here for around 2 months with work. The hotel itself is really nice, staff friendly and the food was excellent (only downside was that the gym is tiny). If I was staying here for a weekend break I probably would have given it 5* but a few improvements are needed for its business customers; 1. Breakfast is slow.... More

Just returned from a two night break at The Winchester. Had a fantastic, relaxing time. The food was great and staff so friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean and spacious. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Booked a one night stopover through Late Rooms and got a very good deal. Based on the price I paid this hotel was excellent - modern, very comfortable bedroom and quite close to the historic centre of Winchester. The breakfast was included in the deal, which is a good job because it wasn't really up to scratch - hot food... More

I was fairly anxious about this hotel given the mixed reviews, but was incredibly pleasantly surprised. We visited for a hen spa weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well cared for and staff were all pleasant and helpful. The biggest surprise was the restaurant - the food was incredible! And our package proved to be incredibly good... More

Stayed here for one night in July and we loved the hotel. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Staff was friendly and professional. Our breakfast experience started the day off perfectly, from the warm and friendly hostess, to the amazing food - we loved everything! Overall, very pleased with our stay and would highly recommend the Winchester Hotel.... More

Comfortable hotel - well positioned,clean and modern. Parking is cramped and may not be cheaper than the public spaces in front. Pleasant dinner, but the breakfasts.....!

When we arrived we were told that we had a free upgrade, a nice touch and good start to our excellent long weekend. The bedroom was lovely, a modern flat screen TV, excellent bathroom with fantastic shower and the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in for a long time.

Do ask for a convenient room because there are 2 different elevators and it's a sprawling place The staff were not very friendly, sadly, especially in the Spa when I arrived to book a treatment they were already fully booked and had not even a smile to welcome me or recommend somewhere else!
