We have just returned from this wonderful hotel. We had the 'heritage package' which was great value for money. The staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. We had a 3 course meal included which was fantastic, good choice on menu and beautifully presented. Breakfast had everything you could wish for and replenished all the time. The hotel is a ten minute walk into Winchester so your car can be left in the car park during your stay. They even threw in entrance to the cathedral which was well worth the visit. The spa area is small but is a bonus after a day of sight seeing. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Fantastic hotel, attentive staff, great facilities and location. Having never been to Winchester before I was sceptical about going to a hotel that wasn't a big chain but wow! Everything was great and I will defiantly be going again. If I had to pick on anything and I am being picky, it would be that the pool is small. Other than that everything was great. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the assistant a manager and young bar man were very helpful. Loved it

Staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. Room had everything you could ask for and was spotlessly clean.
I am a very light sleeper and I don't usually enjoy staying in hotels however I had a very comfortable nights sleep.
This hotel is very well run and well worth a visit. Not the cheapest but certainly excellent value for money.

The Winchester hotel is fairly priced and located ideally close to the railway station. Me and my partner had a function here and I have to say it was perfect. The really have things down to a T. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food was great, no complaints at all for this place. Rooms were clean and modern with fast internet access. Our room even had a TV in the bathroom. I honestly can say this is probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in and great value for money.

We stayed at the hotel to visit the Christmas market, as we live in Surrey we wouldn't normally stay overnight but wanted to make a weekend of it and also went by train. I'd echo one review in that the hotel does have a corporate feel but the room was very comfortable and the food excellent. Service was very good and staff friendly., We didn't use the spa so couldn't comment on that. Overall excellent but it is a little way out of the city, still only a walk but don't expect views of the cathedral.

Arrived at the hotel on the 30.12. Booked in quickly. Room large and comfortable (we had been allocated a "disabled" so huge bathroom). Evening meal was part of the two day package - very good. As the bar did not have "real ale" for hubby went out and found a good pub, the Jolly Farmer, friendly and efficient staff who made us very welcome. Turn right at the end of Worthy Lane a bit of a walk but worth it. Breakfast - plenty to choose from. Service a bit slow due to large number of guests. New Year Gala evening was great. Good food and excellent DJ, playing our type of music - danced all night!! Next morning late breakfast and checkout which was much appreciated. Well done to all the staff at the Winchester.
