“Excellent accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We stayed here recently for 4 nights and after getting upgraded to a larger room--the first room smelled of cigarette smoke and was very tiny--it was very comfortable. Lovely, soft linens on the bed, beautifully appointed bathroom, nice iron and board (business travelers understand that issue) and for us, very quiet mid week. The Dancing Goat has a nice menu for breakfast as well as dinner with large servings but a bit pricey for breakfast. The only issues were the towels were quite shabby with lots of frays on all the bath towels--we told the front desk--and we did not agree that one is automatically charged for the safe even without use. We stay in many hotels and have never been charged for the safe unless we chose to use it. Since we were here on business, we will most likely stay at another hotel that includes breakfast as 2 juices, 1 bowl of oatmeal and 1 tea at $19 with tip, seems steep to ask a client to pay for. For a romantic weekend--absolutely worth it!

Room Tip: We received an upgrade--the small rooms are too small for 2 people.

Thank you so much for staying with us while in the Winchester area, I appreciate your business. Also I appreciate the feedback and will look into your concerns. We do charge $1.50 for the safe because it gives our guests the added security of having a warranty that reimburses you for up to $10,000 if anything were to be forcibly taken. We also do offer a breakfast and room package but breakfast is not included with all our rate packages. We are the only true upscale full service hotel in the region, that said we do offer plenty of options on our breakfast menu for under $10.00 dollars.

Thanks again for the feedback and happy holidays.

We spent one night here and were very pleased. The cost was great. Very comfortable and friendly. We had some trouble in the dining area. Restaurant was closed so we opted to dine in the bar. Food was good, but the staff forgot to deliver our food. We were one of three tables, the place was empty. After eating soup, we waited over an hour for our entrees. When the mistake was discovered, the staff was very apologetic and kind.

We are local to the area and have seen what a beautiful job they have done restoring this old hotel so we decided to stay one night after attending a nearby event. The room and bathroom were very well decorated, clean and comfortable. No complaints there. The problem is the noise! All night we listened to doors slamming, people walking/running up and down the hall and the noise from another event that was begin held at the hotel. It didn't get quiet enough to sleep until almost 3am. They should have insulated the floors and walls better during the renovation for starters and maybe better insulated doors could help some. I expect more from a hotel of this caliber.

We travel through Winchester frequently. This was a combination business/pleasure trip and we had our 2 small children with us. The last time through town, we stayed in another chain hotel further out of town and were less than impressed so we thought we would try Wyndham this time. It was fantastic and we would definitely stay here again!
We had read previous reviews and were prepared for the parking situation. That said, it was November and even with a wedding that weekend, we had no problem finding parking in the lot adjacent to the hotel. Considering that the hotel is located in the heart of the town, you really can't complain abut $5/day for parking. Very reasonable. The interior of the hotel is such a treat since they have done their best to preserve the historical architecture while staying modern. The staff was friendly and our room was delightful. The beds were small but extremely comfortable. My husband and kids used the pool and commented that it was clean and well maintained. (They did mention it was a bit cold, though.) Breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel was reasonably priced, although the Sunday buffet wasn't quite as advertised (the flyer advertised yogurt and cereal but no such luck). Still, the food was good and the presentation was lovely. Service was a bit slow and there were only 3 other tables in the restaurant so we were left with cold coffee once or twice. But again, our overall stay was enjoyable. This would be a great spot for a romantic getaway. Would stay here again.
