Stayed at this very welcoming B&B (not a hotel as the accommodation is in a warren of rooms above a pub). The good: friendly staff, tasty breakfast with good ingredients and healthy choices. None of those silly sample sized toiletries in the room. Perfect to walk into the city and explore. Bedinen spotless The bad: no parking - and the... More

Hotels in Winchester can be expensive - especially those with a central location. This one isn't - with en-suite bedrooms that are comfortable - not luxurious for sure - but OK - at £85 - £90 pounds a night per room. Not bad, and really central, located at the top of the main shopping street. There is no car parking... More

We booked the westgate for a one night stay. Based on some other decent reviews we expected a reasonable hotel for the money. Unfortunately the room we had was awful. The hotel was built in 1877. It's a shame our bed still had a matress from the same era. The pillows were also awful and very cheap and thin. The... More

I used this Pub most lunch times in the late 70's when I worked across the road for HCC. In those days it was a good place to meet friends, have a quick snack and drink in the limited time of the lunch hour. It certainly has changed and is more pleasing and welcoming, nice atmosphere, good beer and a... More

we only stayed one night at this hotel, and were given the Dolls House room, which was large clean and airy & had a huge dolls house in it! The bathroom was across the hall which was ok. The room was at the front of the pub which is at the junction of the busy main road into Winchester which... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry if the plates were cold, I was expecting some assistance at breakfast time that didn't show up so I was run ragged a little. When you booked the room you would have been told that the bathroom was across the hall. We do have rooms with en-suite bathrooms but they had already been... More

My husband and myself popped into the bar on Sat 7th Feb for a drink. The restaurant was busy, only one member of staff seemed to be serving bar and restaurant. We had to wait 15 for a drink. When my husband eventually got served, he paid with a £50 note (new style). The staff member disappeared and returned 5... More

I'm sorry about your experience the other night. Indeed my staff member consulted me and I was also unsure about the note's authenticity and instructed her to ask for an alternative means of payment. I'm sorry if the transaction was then handled badly. More

I have stayed in this place a few times when in Winchester and it's a pleasant place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and have an interesting decoration, the bar downstairs is also nice. it's a good place to stay if you're visiting Winchester as it is close to the centre (three minutes walk to the high street) and is...
