“Lovely staff. Great location for Winchester.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The staff were fantastic. Everyone happy to help and wanting our stay to be as nice as possible. Room was abit small, no 6, but very clean. Food nice but could do with abit of refining. Be warned, the swimming pool is actually a water feature. Whilst pleasant, you would not be able to do proper swimming. The hot tub though is fantastic! We had a massage as well and it was lovely and the rooms for treatments were stunning. Would stay there again.

Everything worked well at this hotel. Checking in and out was efficient and friendly, the rooms were clean and quiet, the bar staff were great, and breakfast was plentiful and good quality.

The air conditioning in the room was fixed at a rather cold 18c - at least it could be turned off though. The car park behind the hotel is a bit of a nightmare and really quite tight which is a bit frustrating as there is a huge and largely empty pay-and-display car park right infront of the hotel!

A bonus is that the town centre is only a 5-10 minute walk. Definitely recommend here and will stay again.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights while taking my daughter to university, flew into Southampton airport 9 mins on the train to Winchester, no more than ten min walk to the hotel. Room very comfortable , clean and quiet excellent nights sleep. Breakfast very good nice choice, did not eat in the restaurant but did eat in the bar area, food very good, reasonable . Good fitness area and pool, with sauna and steam room, also treatments available, very clean and enjoyed nice relaxing swim on two days followed by steam room.Staff very polite and helpful and friendly in all areas of the hotel. prob a ten min walk to the shopping area, but easy to find and pleasant walk. Would recommend this hotel, will use again when visiting the uni

Had a great stay at The Winchester.
Staff are friendly and the Hotel very clean.
Close to the railway station and in walking distance to the town centre.
Looking forward to the next band and bugle reunion and a great stay at this hotel.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel and number of times. If I am in the area this is where I enjoy staying. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is wonderful, and they have a very nice fitness area including indoor pool. The location is a little walk to the center of Winchester which is nice after a dinner in the town. The staff has always been friendly and helpful.

We stayed on the way home to the NW after attending a wedding in East Sussex. We took advantage of a DB&B champagne offer and weren't dissapointed. Room was lovely. Struggled with the air conditioning but staff were really quick to help.

Dinner in the hotel was supberb and good value for money. Breakfast offered a whole host of options for every taste. Chocolate croissants too! Highly recommend and would definitely stay again

Took advantage of the 2 day heritage break which included free admission for 2 to the cathedral which was only a 10 minute walk away. The hotel is situated away from the main road so is nice and quiet ensuring a good nights sleep. All the facilities were spotlessly clean and well maintained. Dinners in the restaurant (the first night was included in heritage break price) were most enjoyable served by most welcoming staff.

Room Tip: Worth paying a little extra for a superior room.
