We stayed at Giffard House for 2 nights along with our friends. We arrived at midday and were immediately checked in and shown to our rooms. The owners of this hotel were so friendly and helpful pointing out places of interest and supplying useful maps of the area. The hotel itself is full of character with nice little seating areas...

Absolutely lives up to all the reviews! Lovely stay at this hotel. The staff are welcoming, the room was comfortable and cozy and we loved the weekend we spent here. Short walk to the town centre so it's a good location too. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Had three rooms, a twin upstairs, a double downstairs, and a single in the outside cottage. Although the mainline railway is around a hundred yards from the back of the hotel, there was no mention of any disturbance in any of the rooms. Comfortable, large beds, the double had eight huge pillows - four of which were day pillows, but... More

It is so nice to know some things don't change. The quality continues at the highest standards. I had room 12 and it was delightful. Peter recommended a new restaurant in Winchester and it was spot on. Breakfast was perfect and cooked to my liking. Salmon and scrambled eggs, with a hint of horseradish and scallions. And an omelette with... More

Stayed at the Giffard House Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful hotel and garden. I think this was possibly the cleanest bathroom I have ever seen! Great breakfast and friendly service. I left something behind and they kindly posted it straight away. Brilliant!

The room was more ostentatious than we required. The bed was very comfortable. We had a good nights sleep. The breakfast was good with a variety to choose from. It was about a 15 minute walk into town where the nearest places to eat are.

We stayed two nights and can wholeheartedly recommend this pleasant establishment. They went beyond the call of duty: our son, daughter-in-law and two year-old grandson were staying in a nearby BandB which was so disgusting that they asked if they could come over to us here and use our shower. The Giffard House Hotel cheerfully provided towels and soap for... More
