The hotel is in a good location for access to river, airport and central part of Dubai. It is about a 10 min taxi ride from airport to hotel. Taxis in Dubai are cheap so it didn't cost too much to travel to the main centre or airport by taxi. The room was spacious and had a large and very comfortable bed. There was a washing machine in the room which is always appreciated when travelling. It was great to be able to relax on the rooftop pool and use the gym. There was a free shuttle bus which took guests to and from various attractions in Dubai. The hotel staff was very efficient and helpful. We had a problem with our TV and someone was sent up straight away to fix the problem. Construction work going on in the area during the day and night, but is was hardly noticeable as the window is shut and the air conditioner was on. Far too much was charged for the use of the internet in the lobby area. Grout of tiles around bath need to have mould cleaned off them.

We went out to Dubai for the New Year and booked to stay in the Winchester Grand. After arriving about 7.30a.m we were told we could check in immediately if we paid extra for the room, otherwise we could check in at 11.00a.m. This was a bit disappointing having known the room had been vacated and was cleaned ready for our stay. The rooms were spacious with a kitchenette and washing machine that we found very useful. Breakfast was ok, but if you like your full English, no you won't get it!
Beware there is building work taking place directly opposite the hotel and they do work 24/7. We had to sleep with cotton wool in our ears to block out the noise.
Also beware of the shuttle service they are running. We waited 45 minutes for the shuttle to take us to Al Manza Beach only to find we were dropped at the public beach on Jumeriah. We questioned why we were not taken to the beach park and we were told it was a free service they provided. If we had known this we would have taken a taxi or the metro to the Jumeriah beach residence. They also did a shuttle service to the Burjuman and the museums so just be prepared you may be taken else where.
On the whole we had a good holiday and the apartments are centrally located, so it is easy to get around especially when using the metro system.
Not sure if i would go back to the Winchester would depend on price when booking.

To be honest, we did not make things easy for the hotel management since my brother and I, who share the same first name initial and the same family name, made 2 different bookings, each for his own need.
However, Winchester has two hotels in Dubai - quasi same name, different location (quite near). It is impossible on the Website to tell in which one a booking is made.
Upon arrival on December 31st 2010, each of the 2locations' Reception Desk held a speech about "upgrading" us to the other hotel. The snake was biting its tail !
Mostly inconvenient moreover is the extremely difficult roadway to reach the location which is inside a streetblock (the other location being easily spotted). Even the map on the hotel's leaflets shows a series of arrows with street names none of which are the same than the reality ('Bank Street' instead of 'Al Mankhool Street')!
A Nightmare which ended in my entering the New Year unpacking my luggage at last instead of celebrating with cheering crowds:-(!

We booked this hotel and the Atlantis hotel in Dubai. We want an affordable place for one and then wanted to stay at the Atlantis hotel.
The Winchester is a very nice hotel, the only thing missing is a good restuarant, we went down for breakfast but it was already finishing up. But half a block is a supermarket then the other way towards the metro(subway) is a Burger King and other supermarkets.
So it was very easy to get anywhere as the metro was 1.5blocks away.

Room was very nice and clean, it was spacious. Had no problems.
Pool on the roof was very nice and was a nice view of Dubai.
Staff are friendly, they had messages for me from tours that we booked and knew who I was when I walked in from going out. Always friendly and helpful.
Got airport pickup at midnight when we arrived and they were waiting, very helpful and professional.

Any questions feel free to ask but great value in the hotel and everything was nice.

Comfortable hotel and a definite positive that its located quite conveniently...Though certain issues with service but the rooms are comfortable and roomy but a lot of things need to be requested eg-the kettle in the room wasnt working, some fixtures in the bathroom were broken but if i look at it from a perspective that you are out all day and just need a place to crash for the night its a reasonably good hotel...
