I stayed here for one night, but it only took 10 minutes to realise why this is the top-rated B&B in Winchester. The first thing I was told when I arrived was that my room had been upgraded for free as it wasn't particularly busy. The room itself was immaculate, spacious, and stocked with everything I needed. Breakfast (Full English)... More

I celebrated my birthday in May with a 10 night stay at the Giffard House. What a lovely visit. I couldn't have asked for a better B&B. The bed was wonderful, clean room and the accommodating staff. We loved the full English breakfast each morning prior to our adventures each day. I would love to make the trip in the... More

We stayed in three rooms here for 9 days in late May. We wanted to explore the Hampshire area plus visit London. What a wonder place we picked! The rooms were perfect...quiet, private and completed stocked with everything we needed. Relaxing in the living room in the afternoon was delightful, Peter fixing us drinks and helping pick dinner spots. Breakfast... More

The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with facilities for making a beverage as I arrived after 10;00 pm. The area was very quiet peaceful and 'upmarket' but the overnight stay including breakfast and VAT was very reasonable compared to others in the area. The breakfast offered all the normal fruit salad and cereals and the cooked breakfast was superbly... More

I stayed here for 1 night yesterday, what a lovely place it was, this is a very clean, and well presented B+B with quality fittings and fixtures throughout the building, I doubt you will find a better quality hotel or B+B in the UK for the price

Repeat stay, great attentive service, lovely rooms and my favourite breakfast of all the Winchester hotels ( and I've stayed at them all ! ). Despite the hotel having a temporary issue with their internet supply, I was provided with access to a mobile internet dongle to ensure I had access, which sums up the attention to detail. Easy, free... More

Stayed at this delightful and inviting hotel last night,and found the entire property to be clean tidy and a nice change from all the soulless chains that you are normally forced to stay at.Very nice fresh breakfast cooked to order,and very good service with a smile even though we turned up for breakfast half an hour early and asked for...

Good: Nice house very clean, good location - But I demand more for about £130 quid - much more Rooms for improvement: 1. Rather officious unfriendly welcome - show to room and directed how to open curtains. 2. No welcome cuppa - you can put the kettle on the floor in your room if you want a brew but there... More

Our 5 star rating and Gold Award are in line with the vast majority of posted reviews and the high standards we have to comply with as imposed by Visit Britain and the AA. We are not sure where the £130 rate or £120.00 rate referred to at the end of your review comes from as we do not have... More

We arrived in Winchester having walked the South Downs Way from east to west. Full of aches and pains, however luckily we had booked ourselves in here as a treat at end of the walk. It's a quite old fashioned hotel, but I mean that in a really good way. Lots of the features of the building are original, and... More

We had a nice stay in this 1875 house - friendly hosts, including the parrot, dog, and cat. The breakfasts were the best on our trip, the room was spacious, and the toiletries were nice. As I was traveling with my wife and 3-year-old daughter, my only caution would be it's a 10-15 min. walk into town (uphill on the... More
