In one word: "charming". From the decoration, to the well-appointed facilities and toiletries and the husband-wife owners (I assume so, anyway!). Room was comfy and clean. Bathroom likewise (with a refreshingly decent sized shower too). Breakfast was ample and delicious, staff were incredibly polite and courteous. Will definitely stay here again - can't recommend highly enough. Thanks for a great... More

As good as ever. 3rd visit always a delight to stay. The owners make you most welcome, the room is very clean & comfortable and always well presented. The breakfast is very good. The location of Giffard House is very convenient for the centre of Winchester but is in a quiet area of the town.

My husband and I stayed at Giffard House for two nights at the end of our two-week vacation in southern England. We chose to stay in Winchester because of its proximity to London, as our flight home left from Heathrow. Gifford House was the perfect choice for us: perfect location with a short walk to town and all of the... More

We stayed 4 nights here and were made to feel very much at home. The room was very comfortable and the trains were not too noisy. There was a nice lounge with newspapers and reading material and a garden when the weather was nice. The mascot boxer dog is completely harmless and keeps his own space unless invited, and there...

After our flight arrived in the UK from the west coast of the US, we had no problems dropping off our bags early in the morning until our room was ready. When we returned in the afternoon, we received another friendly welcome (this time from owner Peter and sweet old Boxer dog Jerry). The beautiful house is located in a... More

My stay set me up for the walk ahead. I would recommend staying at Goddard house, book with confidence. On a side note Winchester is a fantastic town worth... More

Quiet, pleasant & convenient location with 10 minute level walk into city centre (£6 taxi) or 15 minute walk along lovely riverside.

The building and owners are lovely along with Jerry (the dog). Spotlessly clean throughout with very warm and welcoming feel. The location was perfect for a short walk into the centre of Winchester. I would definitely recommend staying here and we will be using the Giffard again.
