We stayed for two nights and booked two rooms for a family of four. The rooms were very comfortable, nicely decorated, very clean and the shower was great. Plenty of towels and toiletries. Breakfast was very good, served promptly and the gentleman serving us was very friendly. We loved Gerald the dog too! It was very quiet, and a short... More

We had a wonderful couple of nights here in November 2015. Couldn't fault Giffard House - from the excellent room with top quality all the way through to the lovely breakfast. Beautiful house. Very friendly and helpful.

This b & b is very well placed in relation to the city centre as it is only about 10 minute walk from the high street and the cathedral. We received a warm welcome from Yvonne and Jerry the boxer was also there to greet us and he is a delight. We had a lovely room (no. 5) overlooking the... More

Good location if you are able to walk well as you can zigzag through streets and enter Winchester by Cathedral Close. Short Taxi journey if you're not able to walk well. Cinema is close by if you're staying a few days and easy access off motorway at Twyford junction. Very, very comfortable bed and tastefully decorated single room. I only... More

Winchester can be a nightmare to visit by car but Giffard House has parking and is only a few minutes walk in to town. With the Christmas Market on in town the roads were hectic, so this hotel offered peace and quiet on the edge of town. Rooms were clean tidy and comfortable and the breakfast excellent.

We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy with our stay. We were given a warm welcome and loved our room. The bathroom was small but very well equipped- we appreciated the Brown and Moulton toiletries. We were part of a larger party and we were encouraged to make full use of the lounge, which we did each evening.... More

The nice thing about Giffard House is that you almost don't notice how pleasant it is. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is good, the staff are friendly and we found nothing to complain about. It isn't overly ostentatious but does have interesting features which catch the eye in every room. We heard the occasional rumble of a distant train... More

Just spend a weekend in Winchester at the Giffard and we were not disappointed with this place. Lovely homely feel to it and possibly the cleanest B&B we've ever encountered. Rooms and beds were comfortable, bathroom spotless, nice Molton Brown toiletries. Breakfast was nicely presented and served by very friendly staff. Comes with a sweet old boxer dog called Gerry...
