“Dickens Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Spent a magical weekend at the Winchester Inn during their annual Dickens Feast. Their beautiful, highest quality guest rooms to the fabulous meals was just heaven. Then add the lovely Christmas decorations, and the live vocal entertainment what a wonderful way to start the holiday season. We will be back again next year!!

This last year marked the 30th annual Dickens' Feast, and I have to agree that it was a special one. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal, as our Chef Billy, has been working hard to find that magical balance between new and familiar. Thanks for the kind words, and we are already hard at work for the next one!

We have stayed at the Winchester for years on trips to Phoenix and Palm Desert. Honestly? This was the best stay yet. We stayed in the Robert Gordon Suite in the right building of the property. Fresh flowers, ice, and muffins awaited out arrival. With gas fireplace, and front Living Room (where I write this), the stay was exceptional. But the best of all was the bed. A thick down comforter, sheets that felt like satin, and a pillow that for me was perfect all made this a memorable stop. We will be back and request this room again. Fabulous one night stay.

I agree that the beds are outstanding. I think that combined with our sheets they make a combination that is practically unbeatable. I hope that while this was your best stay yet that the next one trumps it. Thanks again for the kind words and hope that you can join us soon!

We have just returned home from spending the New Year in Ashland. We were last in Ashland in October and knew that we had to come back and spend a day to explore this beautiful and seemingly prosperous town. The Winchester Inn is a three (I think) building B&B with a total of about a dozen rooms - each from what we could gather were, as expected, very unique. We stayed one night in the Barbara Howard room (it was supposed to be two nights but an ugly cold had me turning back home early) and enjoyed it wonderfully. Fantastic bathroom, comfortable sitting area with a gas fireplace that was most welcome and a mattress on our king bed that was simply the best we've slept on. We had dinner New Year's Eve in the Wine Bar and couldn't have asked for a better evening. I understand they are giving the Bar and Dining Room a "freshening up" (dining room was going to close after the the 2nd) which will be welcomed but in no way prevented us from enjoying our dinner. Breakfast (which is included) was also very very good. This B&B is perhaps stronger in the kitchen than it is in the lodging. We'll be back!!!

Every time I come to Ashland (I'm up to nearly ten visits over the past 7 to 10 years), I stay at the Winchester Inn. Here are a few of the reasons why: great location, amazing accomodations (it's hard not to feel pampered), the most comfortable beds and seets I've ever slept in, extraordinary breakfasts (who ever writis about breakfast?!), an outstanding dinner menu and first class wine list. There's lots to do in Ashland and I sometimes find myself wanting to hunker down and just enjoy staying put at the Winchester Inn.

Each time I have stayed in the Winchester I notice something newly added to the richness of decor, but somehow done in the most comfortable ways. What has not changed is the incredible standard of service. From a warm welcome upon arrival, to every personal need addressed throughout the stay...its impossible to miss the superior and authentic hospitality offered by the whole staff. The warmth and attention to detail in the rooms, and the comfort of beds and furniture add to a real state of relaxation. The service in the restaurant (as well as the beautiful bar adjacent to the lobby) is swift and professional and always personal, which is the character of the whole experience at the Winchester. One of the best parts is the gardens, and the proximity to the theaters and shops. Well done, Winchester Inn. I can hardly wait to return and see whats next!

This richly furnished inn is just a short walk from the theaters of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and a few steps from the tasteful shops and boutiques of Ashland. The inn manages to maintain a feeling of friendly informality wrapped in an aire of dignified elegance. Each room is is individually named and decorated with guests' comfort and convenience a priority.
The included breakfasts in the dining room are delicious and beautifully presented. In the evenings the dining room morphs into a desitination restaurant and the wine bar provides a congenial place to meet other guests and sample Oregon's fine wines. The hosts and staff are exceptionally welcoming and helpful.
