Pauline Stayed in this so called hotel for two nights. Dreadful is all I can describe it as. Rooms very very basic. Lightening in rooms dreadful. Shower over bath and water up to your ankles before you were finished as it did not flow away properly. Large dog going around were you were eating. Narrow stairs to the bedrooms. Carpet... More

I'm sorry you were so unhappy with your stay. I think if you look at other reviews you are unusual in that. I can't remember you expressing any disattisfaction to me or a member of staff at the time. More

Friendly family run hotel occupying three floors above the inn of the same name, located on a busy roundabout, with passing traffic and revellers into the early hours! Our room was on the third floor, reached up narrow flights of stairs. The room & en-suite were clean & all we needed for our brief stay. Time constraints restricted us to... More

We stayed for two nights at the Westgate while we were on vacation. The location was excellent, within an easy walking distance of the train station and major city sites. There also was a lovely view of the main street. Breakfast was made to order and delicious. As with most lodging in the UK, expect lots of stairs (no elevator)... More

Thank you for your review. I take note of the lack of fans in the rooms but that's something we've since rectified. The weather is now mercifully a little cooler. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Many thanks Helen More

This is a great value, comfortable hotel to stay at. The owners are warm and friendly. The breakfast menu is varied but I advise you have the full English with black pudding. Locally sourced ingredients cooked to perfection.

Thank you for your lovely review. Yes we do cook a good breakfast and you're right the quality local ingredients make it very special. The Black Pudding is made by our butcher and wins awards!! I'm on a mission to get people to at least try it and so far I've had a few conversions. Helen More

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

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

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.
