Two weeks ago, I returned to my favorite spot: the Giffard House. The quality is still A+. The value is AAAAA. I stayed in room 11 for five nights. Hot water every morning. Spotlessly clean rooms. Excellent service and breakfast. Like coming home. I really love being able to park my car right in the compound. No worries. The walk... More

I stayed at Giffard House Hotel at the weekend. It is a nice homely place. It is spotlessly clean and well-kept throughout. The staff are courteous and helpful. It is in a quiet residential area. The breakfast was good. It is also reasonably priced. I had a well-equipped single room with a good bathroom.

It's a lovely building and just a 10 minute walk into town. Breakfast was nice. Room was nice but didn't really have any wow factor, felt it was a bit overpriced. Didn't have the luxurious feel I've had at other top rated bnbs around.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March for a city break in Winchester, and recommend this hotel highly. Very clean, comfortable and welcoming,and our room was spacious, with a great bed, and Molton Brown toiletries (always a winner with me). Big bonus is on site parking, and its an easy 10 minutes walk into the city centre, and plenty... More

Me and my partner stayed for one night here on Valentines weekend. The B&B is positively beautiful inside and immaculate. Lots of interesting Victorian style décor and a lovely open fire. The room we stayed in was beautiful with a lovely bathroom set down on another level, again everything was immaculate with everything you could need for your stay, lovely... More

The ambience of the hotel is superb. Been there to stay on several occasions. The couple who runs this hotel are very friendly and helpful in many ways. Its near to the Winchester college boarding schools, so convenient to stay. The rooms I stayed in the hotel were not too spacious but beds are so comfortable and excellent. Every room... More

I would thoroughly recommend staying in this beautifully restored Victorian house, which has much more character than a normal hotel. The room, service and breakfast was excellent, and it is a 10 minute walk in to town where you'll find the sites of this historical city and a great selection of pubs and restaurants.

Spotless hotel,caring staff and great breakfast. Understand why it's ranked number one. Book with confidence.Staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. No iron/board in room but happily allowed access to laundry room without hesitation.

Absolutely fantastic. We could not find any fault with this hotel, from the friendly welcome to the hand written invoice, everything was great. As other guest have mentioned the breakfast is fantastic with the staff going above and beyond to ensure everyone has what they requested and all prepared and presented to a very high standard. We will stay here... More
