Disappointed with our club room. We had to double check we weren't in a standard room in error. Horrible stench seemed to linger throughout our stay best described as smelly feet. Shower curtains instead of screens (always a disappointment )although good power shower. Cheap shampoos etc. comfy bed. Wi-fi not very friendly for apple products ( known problem with hotel)...

Stayed here for one night for my 30th bday and we also got married that day too. We paid for a club double and were upgraded to the diamond suit which was beautiful. We headed straight to the sauna etc and it was nice and quiet so we had it all to ourselves. Breakfast was included and excellent value for... More

Stayed for 2 nights for a forces parade which was a 5 minute drive away. The hotel is stunning inside and out. You need to pay for parking and take care in the car park in the dark as the kerbs around the trees are strange and a bit lethal with no lighting!. The hotel is a bit of a... More

Located a healthy 20 mins walk away from the Cathedral Close city centre, close to the Hyde residential district, with an immense public coach and car park frontage, fit for a bus station. The Classic double provides a classy smart room, if you can find it, probably down a maze of corridors, twists and turns, not for the geographically challenged.... More

Stayed on a Sunday night with a group of friends and we had a great time. All our rooms were clean and well appointed. We ate in the restaurant the food and service were first class. I stayed on the first floor which was very quiet and had a great nights sleep. Had a quick dip in the pool in... More

We stayed here Saturday night as we were going to a party near by. The lady on reception was so friendly, it was a great start to what was a lovely stay.

My husband had booked afternoon tea for our party of 4 to celebrate my birthday. We arrived a little before the booked time. We made our way to the Gershwin bar. The two young men did not have any record of our booking, eventually we were told to take a seat in reception while he sorted it out. The reception... More

I stay at this hotel quite often for business. The hotel is close enough to Winchester so that the city is easily reachable in a few minutes by foot, but far enough outside that traffic is not an issue. The staff are friendly, but sometimes things seem a little disorganised at reception. I have often waited quite a long time... More

We booked 3 double rooms for a group of 6 to stay on Friday 12 December 2014,The rooms were fine. We all had treatments in the health spa which were reasonably ok and the spa facilities were well run. Unfortunately this is where the positives for this hotel ended.... We had reserved a table for 6 to dine at 8:30pm.... More
