My partner and I stayed here over Easter and were pleasantly surprised upon receiving an upgrade! The food was delicious, especially breakfast, but was pretty pricey. Again drinks were expensive and the service was very slow at the bar, but almost worth the wait. Staff were great and location was great

This is a great place to stay, the staff are efficient and friendly. There is a good choice of food, reasonably priced, well presented and delicious. Breakfast is also good, great variety and again, the staff are efficient and friendly. Location is 10 mins from the high street. Swimming pool is lovely, although changing rooms quite small. I would definitely... More

We decided to have a break in Winchester, and the Winchester hotel and spa took our fancy. We found the hotel very clean and our room was very nice. Our stay was an enjoyable one and the hotel is only a five minute walk from the city centre. The only downside is having to pay for parking, you would think... More

Nice hotel, good location! And we got a free upgrade! However, the room was on the third floor and had to take 2 lifts through a maze! Room was very spacious and tidy, and the restaurant food for breakfast and dinner was really nice, fresh and good value! Would go again

A group of us visited Easter weekend for a hen do. Deposits had been paid and preorders had been done well in advance, however the service was terrible. As this cost some of us almost £30 a head, we expected a lot more and not to have to hunt round the restaurant for staff to serve us! A complaint was... More

Excellent hotel with good facilities. Staff friendly. Hotel well situated with centre of Winchester and numerous places to eat and classy shops all around a 10 min walk away. Breakfast choice extensive and the brasserie looked very good too although on this occasion didn't dine there. Only downside is parking at the hotel is not free
