This hotel is pleasant, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean and well maintained - but despite the management photos on their website my overall impression of the place was beige - and this is borne out by the traveller photos that are posted. In our room the carpet and wallpaper lampshades and bed-covers were beige. The bathroom... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review, Whilst we are admittedly disappointed with the 3 marks you have awarded us here any criticism of the hotel seems to be aimed at the `beige` wallpaper and light fittings in your bedroom. As such - and given your very kind comments about every other aspect of the hotel including our friendly... More

I have stayed here about 20 nights over January 2015. Always a great service and the food is nice. A short walk from Winchester centre with loads of restaurants. Not used the pool or gym but the pool looks very small. The beds are good and the hotel over all is Recommend!

Good value used the heritage package included cathedral tickets and breakfast only disappointment was having to pay for parking. Cheaper in the public car park than the hotel car park. Hotel in a great location for easy walk to town and attractions

Great rooms. Good breakfast. Very clean and does everything you need. Easy access to central Winchester with easy parking in an area where parking is a premium. Ticks all the boxes for a short stay. Ensure you access the hotel car park accessed via the barrier to the left as parking at front can cost you a few pounds.

We should have known what to expect when on 30th November a trip advisor rating warned us this hotel was going to be underwhelming. We did not expect to be met by immediate electrical problems, which obviously happen often because the staff had battery operated candles at the ready and pulled them out like a well-drilled exercise within 30 seconds....

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review of the hotel. You have highlighted the recent power cut at the hotel - which was caused by a fault at the local substation and for which we have received the apologies of SSE in consideration of the effect that this had on their ability to supply power to the local area....

A group of use stayed there recently. If you are looking for a place to sleep and nothing else, then this is great. The rooms are great, fresh and clean... From there I am convinced you can find better. Some of the rooms were very noisy throughout the night. The parking... from about 1800- 0800 they charge £0.15 / hour.... More

Stayed on a Friday night on the deal with dinner and a cocktail. We picked a suite as the price was good, and we wanted a nice evening away from the kids. It was easy to find, and park. First disappointment was that the parking was paid, as they had plenty of space I had expected free parking. It was... More
