Booked Three double rooms at the Giffard for our annual reunion. Overall Hotel standards are excellent, the hotel is clean and rooms are well furnished and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was freshly cooked with a good choice. Would have given 5* if it hadn't been for the following: The ensuite shower in room 11 is small, in fact it's so tiny... More

Booked for a weekend stay in Winchester to celebrated my partner's birthday, based mainly on so many favourable comments on TA. We weren't disappointed - this is a beautiful Victorian house, superbly and tastefully restored by its owners. Loved the decor and generally immaculate presentation. We had the suite downstairs at rear which, whilst I was initially concerned about the... More

As you arrive at this hotel your 1st impression hints at what is to come; this large, victorian villa is immaculately kept with well tended but exotic plants (including a palm tree) framing the door rather than the roses you'd expect, and a small fountain stocked with fish plashes away Inside the hotel is just as immaculate, decorated and furnished...

My two sisters and I recently stayed at Gifford House 4 nights on our U.K. holiday. We felt we were in the "lap of luxury". We couldn't have asked for better accommodations and the price was well below it's value. The complimentary breakfast offered had numerous options; the beds and linens, beyond expectations. We felt welcomed and pampered. The animal... More

I was very happy to stay at Giffard House for three nights - a stunning building, well kept up with a few rooms at a lower tariff - I was here on Business and had a single occupancy for 89.00 - complete with breakfast (including the best fruit salad I have ever had!). The exteriors and interiors of this place... More

My husband and I stayed in a double while my father stayed in a single for 5 days in late August. Giffard House was very welcoming and we loved the cat, dog, and bird!!! The breakfast was excellent...even as a vegan there were options! Free Wifi could be spotty if you had more than one device in the same room,... More

It has been about 120 days since my last visit. I'm very pleased at the improvements they've made to the decorating (new carpeting, new quilts, new furniture, and new bed frames), even if they didn't need them. I've been in room 1 for a week and room 12 for another three days. A perfect sleep every night. Of all of... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely delightful. Everyone was so polite and helpful, the hotel in itself was lovely and clean. Would definitely recommend all my friends to stay here when they visit Winchester! The hotel was the cherry on top of a perfect weekend with my husband!

I stayed for 4 nights in April 2014. It is an impressive building and attractively furnished. My room was immaculate though very small and up several flights of stairs. I am a little surprised by the high rating this place gets - I have since had a far better and more personal experience at No 29 Christchurch Road across the... More

We had a super stay here. We had a small suite on the ground floor which made life very easy - it had a sofa bed in a slightly separate room which our 2 boys enjoyed. Breakfast was lovely and the hotel attracts a gentle, charming type of a guest in Winchester for an enjoyable reason which led to a... More
