It 's right in the heart of Winchester. The twin beds are large & sheets are superb.The suite is fine. the service is exemplary. Lights are fine The breakfast & tea are both ideal. Had a little difficulty getting in & out of shower, but perhaps that's age!!.

Fabulous historic inn. The barman was super kind & carried our considerable luggage upstairs. The 1st night was a heatwave & the room was very hot but they had the windows open & a large fan was provided. I have stayed in Marriott's with no a/c & no fan, The room has a fridge!! A total winner. It came stocked... More

My family of 4 - Parents and two teenage boys- stayed a Saturday night in the Zoffany and Annexe and had a splendid time. We loved our rooms - beautifully furnished, each one completely different and in a different class from even the top chain hotels. All the little touches of luxury were done so well – too long a...

Great Place! Good rooms, good view and great service. Plus a GREAT location. Located directly across from the city museum and the cathedral. A wonderful visit. Located just 20 minutes from the cruise terminal at Southampton, so this is a great pre cruise hotel location. Unrelated to the hotel - avoid at all cost "Winchester Taxi". Maybe ask the desk...

This was an overnight stop-over on way to a Cunard Cruise for its 175th Anniversary. I booked online well in advance as I knew it was popular and the on-line attention and information that was sent by e-mail could not be faulted. Telephoning the hotel was met with great attention and advice. We booked the Osborne & Little suite which... More

Staying at this historic inn, which is located across from Winchester Cathedral was one of the most fun experinces you must have when visiting England. Arriving at 5pm, my first impression at The Old Vine was...OMG! The lively inn and pub was three deep at the bar and all of the tables were full of jovial customers. There is no... More

This inn is right across the street from the Winchester Cathedral and within walking distance to all attractions. Such as the Round Table, City Mill, Ruins of Winchester Castle, Wolvesley castle and Church of St. swithun's! Parking is very limited. The room, service, location and food were excellent. The stairs and halls are very narrow and uneven but that is... More

My husband booked the annex for a birthday surprise. It was gorgeous and modern. I loved this place and the pub/restaurant was lovely with an open fireplace, great for a February visit. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay here again.
