While the property itself is probably not one of Prince Charles' favourite examples of good English architecture, the location can't be beat, bordering on the Cathedral Close and in easy walking distance of Winchester's many attractions. Road access is also straight-forward. Rooms were fine and clean, most with a lovely view of the Cathedral itself. Staff could not have been nicer, or more helpful.
One small caveat. Phone calls from the room phones are expensive. Use your mobile.
