4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

All the staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. The hotel/inn was characterful and ideally located for easy acces to the city. The room was clean and commodious. However a little inexpensive TLC wouldnt go amiss, to fix the shower and broken plug chains. The corridors could do with a thorough dusting. The food was good, hot and well presented and... More

Having read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a little apprehensive about our stay at the Westgate. However, from the moment we stepped into the cosy, welcoming bar I knew there was nothing to worry about! The landlady was extremely helpful, letting us leave our bags and pick up our keys early so we could head off to... More

Being an inn in the centre of Winchester, I wasn't expecting too much in terms of the quality of accommodation and was really pleasantly surprised. French lady on reception was superbly friendly and helpful; room was bigger than expected and the bath was massive; room was much quieter and cooler than is usual in these types of properties; breakfast was...

Popped in here as the peninsular cafe was I helpfully shut. No food served on a Monday which was disappointed so had some nice nibbles instead. Friendly bar girl and enjoyed dodging owners giant dog. Liked the place, wish I had gone on Tuesday

I stayed here overnight, the place looks run down from the outside and I was very apprehensive to enter, once inside the pub area my opinion quickly changed, the host was very welcoming. The bar area and room were clean, altho the room decor a little dated and run down, bed was not too uncomfortable although the pillows a bit... More

We stayed overnight whilst going to a wedding party. We had a non ensuite bathroom. Room was ok. It did for a night. It was large. Shared bathroom was ok bit shabby and old. Wasn't that impressed for the £70 we paid. But the breakfast was fantastic and made up for it a bit. Ok for an overnight stay if... More

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
