Never having visited Winchester before the choice of this hotel was pot luck, but it roved to be very nice indeed. I had told the reservation dept., (Joel) that it was our anniversary which resulted in an upgrade to room 118 - the Platinum Suite - which is a large beautiful room with an enormous television, sofa and various comfy...

It is hard to write a review when friends, on a previous gave a different view. However, we review as we found. We were staying for one night b&b for a graduation the next day. On arrival and all through the short stay the staff were excellent and could not have been better. The room was comfortable and clean and... More

Dear Guest Thank you so much for your lovely review of The Winchester Hotel and Spa. Whilst I note that you very much enjoyed your stay I am sorry that you found the temperature of our Jacuzzi to be other than you would have liked. It is of course difficult to set one temperature to suit all our many guests.... More

We have stayed here on three occasions now, and dependant on what type of room you get, reflects on how you feel about the stay. We had a basic double, it was modern and functional, however last time we stayed we had an upgrade to an executive double, very spacious, full bathroom, fridge tea and coffee facilities. We used the... More

We looked for a hotel for our first anniversary and found the Winchester hotel through booking.com with great reviews. The hotel was modern, clean and welcoming. The room decor was warm and relaxing, with a welcome card on the bed - we reserved a bottle of bubbly for our room on arrival. After a relaxing walk round the cathedral and... More

My girlfriend and I love this hotel as it hold some very special memories, it was the first place we went when we go together. I booked the diamond suite as a extra special birthday surprise for my girlfriend. We were not disappointed! Loads of room, lovely comfy bed and the fresh fruit was a nice touch.

Nice hotel. Nothing special. A 10 minute walk from the high street. They charge you for parking which is not good. We had a snack in the bar. The food was nice but difficult if you have dietary requirements. We are vegetarian & struggled. Everything was with cheese. To me, it's not the sign of a good chef if they... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review of the hotel. On receiving your comment concerning the vegetarian options available on our menu I am at a loss to understand why you felt that our offering was limited to dishes which `contained cheese`. I note that we offer the following range of vegetarian dishes - none of which fall into this... More

As we have been traveling around the English countryside and staying in older hotels and quaint B&B's, this was a surprise. Very sleek and modern common spaces. Room was nothing special decor-wise, but certainly was clean and comfortable. The restaurant had interesting and unusual dishes and very tasty. I had a wonderful massage in the Spa, which was realty needed.... More
