Created a comfortable, friendly atmosphere to set the tone of a visit to a magnificent city. Once parked in the grounds, you don't need to use your car again. The hotel is beautifully decorated to fit the era of its build. Our first visit, will not be our last.

Beautiful, clean, friendly, great breakfast and outstanding staff. I only wish we could have met Peter, our host, who kindly corresponded with us and gave us excellent restaurant suggestions through our emails.

Room 11, must have followed after doggarlic, I endorse everything he said. Peter was able at about 4 weeks' notice to offer me the one remaining room (this is July in Winchester!)for £89 per night inc VAT, "double as single", and as I am quite a small bloke I found it spacious enough. This is a Victorian villa, and this... More

Because I am a bit disabled I need a room with a walk in shower and the only hotel in town that had one wanted £200 oplus breakfast plus vat. Thanks to Trip Advisor I found Giffard House, and what a find! Room 11 was perfect and not as a previous member said "noisy and too small" Whilst not palatial... More

If you are visiting Winchester this hotel is a 'gem' we have stayed many times but I feel I must write a review to share the unique experience. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the city centre so you can leave you car in the secure car park and explore on foot. The hotel is a wonderful Victorian... More

This B&B is truly terrific. Arrived mid afternoon, room was ready. Everything was immaculate. Jumbo sized white fluffy bath sheets. Everything you could possibly want in the bathroom. Lovely bed. We knew the Southampton to London mainline was close but were not disturbed by train noise, even with an open window. The owner recommended a good local restaurant and booked... More

An excellent location just a 10 minute gentle walk to the City Centre and the Cathedral. It has it's own car park which is a bonus so once there you can leave the car where it is. The hotel itself is a bit like a B&B in that you let yourself in and out and the bar is not staffed... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the cheapest double rooms. It was excellent; clean, comfortably furnished, well appointed and quiet. I think the rooms on the rear may have been noisier due to the railway line at the back of the hotel. The staff were very pleasant and overall the premises were most comfortable. The breakfasts were well... More

...even when our party arrived after 10-30 at night, the bar was opened especially for us ( after a long journey). Bedrooms are lovely, beds a bit firm for my taste but I can't complain...just be aware; complimentary drinks and biscuits in the rooms with lovely teasets to drink out of. Breakfast was lovely. It was nice to meet the... More

This was a very pleasant hotel, however, as a solo traveler I was given the smallest room on the very top floor. Although small, the room was well appointed with a great shower. Breakfasts were very good, although the staff seemed a little flustered with my request for a bagged lunch. Very convenient for walking to all of Winchester's main... More
