“Extremely Good Value For Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We stayed here for 6 nights and found it brilliant for the pocket change we paid per night. If you are after 4* luxury you will be disappointed, but if you are after clean, convieniently located with a pool and sun lounge area this is more than adequate.

The few negative things we encountered were: no dish cloth or washing up liquid was provided in the apartments so we had to buy some our selves. Breakfast is pretty poor for 30dhms and we had to ask reception 5 times to come and reset our safe on the first day. These are minor though compared to how good value for money this place is.

Free wifi is available in the lobby. The rooftop pool and sun bathing area is very clean and welcoming, we spent many happy hours up there catching the rays. Most of the time it was just me and my partner up there and you can take your pick on sun beds.

The hotel is located in a residential area of Dubai, so is quiet but local amenities are close by. Spinneys is a 24hr supermarket that is less than 15 min walk away. You have access to the red and green metro line. Green is slightly nearer with a 7 min walk and the red is 15 mins away but you can cut through the airconditioned Burjaman mall which is well worth it.

20 mins on the metro will get you to the Dubai Mall which will cost you no more than 2dhms or you can get a taxi which will take the same amount of time but cost 20dhms. If you can't be bothered to head into town for dinner then there are plenty of local restaurants nearby which look great, we just weren't there long enough to try them!

If I was hitting Dubai on a budget then I would definitely return to the Winchester Grand!

P.S no problems with Air Con what so ever.

Room Tip: One at the front of the hotel gets you a balcony.

Excellent accommodation, huge 2 bed apartment with 2 large bathrooms and additional wc. Bit of a trek to the nearest metro station. Close to a mall and local restaurants, bonus was Yo Sushi within 10 min walk. Great view from the roof top pool. A great base for exploring Dubai when all you really need is a good bed for the night.

The room was stinking! Opened the window..it didnt help. The kitchen was not cleaned by room service and the coffee cups were left unwashed in the sink. The hallway was also very smelly. The free shuttle service is at 10am and 3pm only which was very inconvinient. The towels were in bad shape looked very old. The bathtub was dirty, the white shower curtain was yellow! And there was what looked like mould around the sink. Reception did not allow my sisters who were staying in a different hotel to come up to my room to pray! We had to argue with them and finally they allowed them after taking copies of all their ID cards! They also refused to give us another swipe card for the room even though the room was booked for 2 people! I'm very disappointed i dont understand how this is a 4 star hotel! The only good thing was tne bed which was comfortable! Even though it was only a small double not a queen as we were told online! And there was no sofa just 2 uncomfortable seats. Very very disappointed with the experience.

I stayed with my family in a One-Bedroom Apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was quite spacious, but I am really disappointed with the poor air conditioning in the apartment., mainly as it is peak summer & the weather is very hot & humid outside. On complaining, the service engineer came for a check, did some minor adjustments & left, but it was of no help. The underground car park is also very narrow & has limited spaces.

We got a really good deal on the hotel. The room was huge with its own kitchen area and huge bathroom. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful when booking shuttles, taxis trips etc.

The pool area was lovely, the pool was a good size and there was a nice breeze as its on the roof so it makes it bearable in the heat.

Breakfast was very well priced and they have the usual cereals and breads. The cooked food is native food and its nice to try it for a change too. You can also order american cooked breakfasts etc.

Taxi's are so cheap in Dubai that it was really easy to get around the city. The hotel offers a free shutle service to most of the main attractions like the beach and the mall. Which are great to use. Sometimes its easier to get the shuttle there and then get a taxi back at your own leisure.

The hotel has free wifi in the lobby.

Highly recommend.
