We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate my husband's birthday and visit the city and Christmas market. The hotel is within walking distance of the city centre - about 15 minutes brisk, level walk - so we left our car at the hotel and walked into town to see the sights/markets during the day and then again in the evening...

Stayed just the one night to visit the Christmas Markets. Lovely welcome and helped with baggage. Gave lots of info of where everything was at the hotel and how to get to town. Taxi into town was £5 one way. It is walkable and a good location. Room beautifully decorated. There is a railway line at the bottom of the... More

Faultless boutique B&B/Small Hotel. Delightful Victorian building full of character with well equipped and nicely decorated and furnished rooms. Spotlessly clean. Ample parking. Fine breakfasts. Friendly welcome. Easy walk into town centre/Cathedral precincts. Our room at the front was quiet and we did not hear the trains at the rear. Highly recommended !

This is a well-appointed B&B with a comfortable. Rooms at the back are a fair way from the railway line, but once the leaves have fallen from the trees, light sleepers may find the noise disturbing. Personally i was not woken by the trains. Beds and bathrooms are fine. The breakfast is comprehensive, tasty and freshly cooked. Off-street car parking... More

My friend and I travelled to Winchester last Friday to visit the Xmas Market. We decided to stay at the Giffard House Hotel and were glad we did. We booked a single room each, which were very pleasant, nicely decorated, warm, clean and a very nice ensuite shower room. Very comfortable bed and all the furnishings were a of a... More

This is a lovely guest house type accommodation. The building and decor are immaculate and we have rarely stayed in a room so well appointed and spotless. It's a five minute stroll into the beautiful city with fantastic history. Lovely breakfast and all staff very friendly. Well worth five stars and can't wait to stay again.

In the enchanting city of Winchester, we found an equally enchanting place to stay, Giffard House. As a guest here, one does not want for anything because it's all so perfect. The managers & staff work diligently to provide guests with the ultimate experience. This Victorian house is absolutely gorgeous, immaculate kept, the dining room beautiful with a sumptuous breakfast... More

We decided to stay in Winchester for one night only on our way elsewhere and wanted a quiet and comfortable hotel. We were not disappointed. The room was large, airy and fitted out so well as to be almost flawless. The attention to detail was striking, from the quality of the bathroom fittings to the colour scheme and the design... More

Just arrived back from a two night stay. Lovely hotel very clean with beautiful decor. A nice location within 10 mins stroll to the city centre. Winchester is a lovely small centre with nice places to eat. Breakfast was lovely and well presented. Would stay again.

As part of my job I have to stay at numerous hotels around England. This is the first time that I've been so impressed with the accommodation and the people that I've felt the need to write a review. The hotel is ideally situated just a 5 minute stroll from city centre. It is spotlessly clean and my suite consisted... More
