Great location but thats the only high note. Reception staff were frankly weird. Key cards failed to work everyday. Room wasn't cleaned as late as 2pm. Both of these issues were met by excuses by the hotel staff. We were told our booking included complimentary breakfast at check-in but at check-out were told to pay...we didn't. A disappointing stay and... More

The hotel was lovely and the location was perfect for our needs. The gardens and courtyard were especially pretty. The downside is that they have no business center so there is no easy way to print any documents you might need, like boarding passes. Also, because of our flight schedule, we arrived 3 hours before check in and there was... More

From check in to departure the staff were friendly and cheerful and couldn't do enough to help with the few additional requests I had. The car parking is plentiful and spaces a decent size although the one way system around town is a pain - nothing to do with the hotel. My room (117), which had fabulous views of the... More

Lovely garden rooms, excellent food in restaurant, worth doing a DB&B option as good value for money. Great location in Winchester. Only slight sticking point is you have to pay for parking. Not really cricket when you've paid for DB&B and taken lunch there.

This is a nice old hotel, with both old and newer buildings. The rooms are clean and big with modern equipment. They have a nice secret garden and I really enjoyed the big breakfast (both english and continental).

Poor levels of service. Papers never delivered to room. Dirty bed linen. Room not value for money, suite overlooking brick wall, sub- standard bathroom. Way overpriced, £440 two nights. Great location for walking.

Excellent location, looks nice from the outside, but that's where it stops. Arrived as wedding photos were being taken on the steps into the hotel, and had to wait outside in the rain. Not being a killjoy, but it was a bit of a daft place to take photos. Hotel smelt stale, gruby carpets throughout. Room, for what we paid... More

Mother wished to celebrate her one hundredth birthday in Winchester and we chose the Royal Winchester both for its location and for the fact that mother remembered it from her time in the city during the Second World War. We could not have made a better choice. The hotel offered an adapted room, suitable for mother's needs, with an adjoining... More
