What a fabulous place to stay! We booked one night as we were visiting the "Hat Fair". From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Our room was full of character and had a lovely view over the Westgate. It really was charming. Only a few minutes walk into the centre of town too... More

Thank you for your fantastic review. Hat Fair was a blast. We had so many great people staying with us so although I didn't get out to see any of the acts the weekend was still a lot of fun. More

I've just spent two nights in the Wren room with my fiancée. The location is great for anyone travelling to Winchester by train and wanting to see local attractions; it is opposite the Westgate and the Great Hall, and a very short walk into town. The landlord and staff working there were exceedingly friendly, and the breakfast was great, and... More

I've just read your review of The Westgate and must thank you for your lovely comments. Glad you enjoyed the inclusive breakfast too. At this time of year it's wonderful to be able to put a beautiful, seasonal fruit salad on the buffet table as well as the wide range of cooked dishes. Thank you again, hope you visit us... More

Whilst I have been into this prime location venue on numerous occasions, I have never had Sunday Luncheon. Now I have I cannot shout the praises of Helen, who with Guy, run the Hotel.

Popped in a few times now for Sunday lunch - our daughter is at Winchester uni. The food is great - one of the best roast dinners we've had anywhere, plenty of vegetables and all cooked perfectly. The landlord and landlady (we presume) make you very welcome.Would definitely recommend. Maybe as it is a university town, a bit of marketing... More

Thank you for your review it was lovely to see you and your daughter again. Yes we should be busier on a Sunday, we do have quite a few regulars who are always very happy with Sunday lunch.

Stayed one night while travelling to London. The building was old with some wear and tear through the years, but we loved it. The hotel was on the corner of a main street in Winchester, conveniently located to the center of town. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel location, building, and service felt like we... More

A group of us went to Winchester for the weekend to have a catch up and do a bit of Christmas shopping and myself and one other friend booked into the westgate inn. The accommodation was really handy for the train station (2 minute walk) and the shops are only a few minutes straight down the high street. I arrived... More

A friend of the family booked into this hotel for a night to coincide with the visit of his beloved Tottenham Hotspur to Southampton. First impressions were good as a friendly hotel manager welcomed us in the morning before he arrived to have an extremely affordable cup of coffee and a glass of water alongside the breakfast consuming residents while...

You don't tell the full story in your review. We called the only number we had at 10.15 to let you know that we would be closing at 11.00. The guest himself didn't talk initially his friend did and his attitude on the phone was unpleasant. My member of staff was shaken - he even asked if the key could... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and congratulations on your graduation. We do get busy at certain times of the year and so I'm glad you were able to stay with us. £80 is reasonable for Winchester and we don't put our rates up at busy times. More

good accommodation,good breakfast,friendly staff, shame they have stopped doing food in the evening,and closed early,(possibly due to time and dates) ideal location for visiting the attractions around town ,close to railway station if you wanted to go further afield

Thank you for your recent review. I'm sorry we're not doing food in the evening at the moment but that is due to change from the beginning of November. We are licensed until 11.00pm and close the bar 20 minutes later. As a resident you are permitted to drink after licensing time at the landlord's discretion. I can only assume... More
