We arrived to a 20 minute queue to check in. When we got to our room overlooking bins it was very dated the carpet needs replacing and room and bathroom really needs a repaint, bath is so old it's stained with dirty grouting and the plumbing system obviously doesn't work properly.£185 for a twin room for one night, I got...

I visited this hotel yesterday with an elderly relative. He was served a chicken caesar salad that was practically drowning in the dressing. The chicken was tough and difficult to cut. I brought it to the attention of the waitress - she went to speak with the manager. She returned and apologised but nothing was offered to make up for...

For all it advertises, this is a pretty average hotel. The room I was given was quite small for a double and was showing plenty of signs of wear and tear. Although it is next to the cathedral, be aware that you may have a room that looks out onto a back street with only the brick wall of the...

A surprise Afternoon Tea for family member's birthday. The sandwiches, patisserie and scones were sumptuous and the waiters very attentive at topping up our tea. We had a table in the restaurant overlooking the Cathedral and were able to enjoy a very relaxed tea. Only comment, the hotel entrance not very disabled friendly.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights! Whilst the room itself was ok..clean and tidy with extra pillows and towels, and tea and coffee facilities. Where our room was situated was a bit of an issue. We were facing all the shops...well the back of the shops! This wasn't actually the problem! The problem was that for both...

The hotel looks a little tired overall but the location and staff are both excellent! The breakfast was very good too but it wasn't included in the room price and we had to pay extra. It was worth it!

This is a pretty standard hotel in a great location! Rooms are as one would expect for a 3 star hotel, basic and clean, maybe a little dated. It is positioned in the heart of Winchester with the cathedral a stones throw away. Breakfast was a nice spread and staff were friendly. Perhaps a tad expensive for what it is...

Could not fault the location of this hotel, was 2 minutes from the centre of the town, so excellent place to stay, I think they claim to be a 4 star, this has to be for the location as it's a decant 3 star hotel. We ate in on the Friday night, food was so so as was the breakfast,...

The Hotel is situated in the lea of Winchester Cathedral and on the central walking thoroughfare, so ideally placed. The staff were fine and our room was good, wifi worked and free.
