Great location in the nicest part of Winchester with fabulous character rooms. I was worried that it may be a bit noisy but double glazing/shutters/thick curtains take care of that. The place has a nice relaxed feel but the service/quality is of a really high standard. They were flexible with arrival times and hanging on to the parking permit for... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Nina Campbell room. A great large room with a beautiful bathroom and super comfy beds. The room was spotlessly clean with everything you need. We had a superb dinner in the restaurant and delicious breakfast served in our room. The location of the Old Vine is perfect for exploring the beautiful city of... More

The Old Vine is lovely. We stayed in the Zoffany room for 3 nights, and I would go back any time. Service and accommodations were excellent, the food was amazing, and it is directly across from Winchester Cathedral in a quaint area with lovely shops and pubs. One caution - parking is by permit on the street in certain zones.... More

This really is a lovely hotel and gastro pub. Our only comment would be that the breakfast is a bit small, we had toast which was one slice, when we asked for more it was brought but it seems a bit silly just to bring one slice, same with the croissant . Additionally I would suggest a pot of coffee... More

Thank you! We're delighted you enjoyed your visit. The breakfast is served in our restaurant, and is a la carte. This means you are welcome to order whatever you fancy from the menu, and in any quantity. We prefer to the serve the pastries and toast in smaller quantities so that they remain hot on the table and don't go... More

We stayed at the Old Vine's Designer's Guild Annex in April this year. We only stayed for one night but I wish we could have stayed longer. The Annex is apart from the main hotel, just across the road. It is spread over 3 floors, with a large double bedroom, and a single room at the top, so perfect for... More

My wife and I spent a lovely evening at The Old Vine. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and the food was delicious. Just yards away from the Cathedral, The Old Vine is blessed with beautiful surroundings and is an attractive looking building from the outside; inside there is a perfect blend of old and new furnishings. The Zoffany... More

We recently had a number of executives stay at the Old Vine, and they were beyond accommodating with all of our needs-- they opened breakfast for us early, moved rooms around, and allowed us to drop and add days with very little notice, I cannot speak highly enough about their customer service, and willingness to make special arrangements. The rooms... More

Stayed here for just one night in the Nina Campbell room. This is a large, comfortable and airy twin room on the first floor with a very pretty bathroom. The shower is over the bath and could do with being a little more efficient, but the toiletries were nice and the towels huge and sparkling white. The staff were courteous... More

I had been looking forward to eating here for a while and this place didn't disappoint. With an open fire, wooden floors and tasteful furnishings this place is perfect place to eat a meal on a winter's day and both the restaurant and bar have a very warm and welcoming feel to them. The starters that my wife and I... More

Wonderful! Location is superb - right across the street from the Cathedral. The room was very spacious and clean. I had made dinner reservations - the food was fantastic,. Since I travel alone I was very pleased with the security system. I had made reservations in Nov. but fell ill and had to cancel at the last minute. They held... More
