Dotty is immediately friendly in a natural, entirely easygoing way. Don't let her name or laughably inaccurate reviews give you the wrong impression. A big part of the brightness, charm and character of the place is because of her. The rooms are huge, the breakfast is lovely. A nice example of just how first rate the hospitality was came at...

My sister-in-law and I shared a huge twin room in this lovely B&B. It was a very hot day/night outside, and the room was beautifully cool with a lovely view. There was a massive well kept garden which Dotty was happy for us to use although we ran out of time. Dotty cooked our breakfast in front of us on... More

We booked a few weeks ago using the number on the website. Dotty was such a fantastic host and when we arrived we were welcomed in such a great fashion. The room was spacious and clean; we also had fantastic views out the front over Winchester. The location was fantastic, the breakfast was well cooked and I haven't felt more... More

We had an issue with bookings made from our website whereby the email history was not recorded in our bookings folder which has now been resolved and that is why the booking was not... More

I spent a night in Winchester last week to attend a meeting. Booking the room was very easy, just a phone call. Despite the fact that English is not my first language, the host was very supported and made the communication easy. The room was fantastic: enormous, comfortable and clean. The cleaning lady did a great job. The location is... More

My partner and I recently spent a weekend in Winchester and wanted to stay somewhere that was in keeping with the city's heritage. St John's Croft did not disappoint. It is a beautiful house and Dotty a charismatic host, who made us feel truly at home. We could not fault the room or service and will definitely be returning!

We were booked to do some filming in the local area and were greaterd by the host who was more than happy to let us bring our equipment in. The house has a really warm friendly vibe, the room was really comfortable as were the beds. The cooked breakfast in the morning was also very welcoming. Two mins walk into... More

A friend and I stopped over in Winchester for a night out and had a brilliant time at St John's Croft. After the 10/15 minute walk from the station, on arrival at this huge house we were greeted by Dotty who showed us to our room (again, massive - check out the photos) and was incredibly helpful and showed us...

It has been four years since I have been able to visit St Johns Croft. Again, the beauty of the home and the warmth of the hospitality are incredible. Each room is beautifully decorated - the whole house is stunning. Dotty and Nick are great company, which really adds to the experience. I whole heartedly recommend visiting.

A group of us had a brilliant stay here, in the beautiful quadruple room. It was very clean, comfortable, friendly and relaxed. The location is very convenient for a short walk in to town. We can't wait to go back !
