“I liked the room, but John was not crazy about it”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

There were a number of nice touches in the room. It is an older property, so I think they've done pretty well with it. A bit of an awkward walk to the dining room in the rain. We lucked out in being able to park near our room, but I could see that we easily could have had to walk quite a distance had we not. We ordered a cheese plate in our room. I thought it was lovely, nice cheeses.

We stayed in the Catharine M room. Second story in the heritage bldg. The room & bath were very spacious and super clean. It had a balconly (however, it's shared with the room next door, so not private, if that matters to you). The queen bed was very comfortable and the linens were very high quality. The hotel was full, but you never heard anyone from the room. Great insulation. Very attentive, nice staff. They deliver sweets to your room in the afternoon, and also offer turn down service. The hotel bar is top notch. Say "hi" to Owen the mixologist. The included breakfast was unique and very delicious too. They truly take everything to the next level at the Winchester Inn and still maintain that friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. We've already booked our next stay!

We stayed in the Eleanor Rose suite and were very happy with our choice. Very nice room that is on the top floor, wonderful bed and large quarters. Loved the bar for early reading and late drinking and visiting. The staff was attentive to our needs and very helpful in our daily plans. Everything was within walking distance and so the car remained parked. The breakfast was fabulous with multiple choices, beautifully presented and delicious. The Alchemy was a wonderful experience and supported by a wonder staff. We loved the boutique inn feel of this property and felt part of the company and yet able to retreat to our quarters for privacy. We will stay here again.

This was a wonderful stay in Ashland, Oregon and a few short blocks away from the Shakespeare Festival. Our room was wonderfully appointed; The Patio Room. It did include a flat screen TV as I understand that some rooms do not. The bed was super comfortable with soft linens. There is a wet bar, sink, and fridge in the room stocked with water, drinks, and wines. I also enjoyed the shower as it had duel heads. The breakfast (included in the stay) was WONDERFUL!! We sat in the courtyard and enjoyed coffee, fresh fruits and a wonderful take on eggs Benedict served in an artichoke base. I would recommend this inn for those attending the Shakespeare Festival. If you walk down the block, there are also various shops and it is quite charming. We had a very lovely stay and plan a return. We might check out some of the other rooms. You will also love the courtyard!

We stayed in the Fordyce room. Top notch. We requested wine and truffles, and they were waiting for us upon our arrival. We also ate in their dining room,now called Alchemy. The dinner was excellent. The staff was aware of our plans to attend a play, and they made the dining experience very delightful. The chef is quite talented. It is a superb menu, we felt like we were eating in a 5 star restaurant. Breakfast was also amazing. This is a great B & B.

Room Tip: Ask the managers for the best rooms. They won't steer you wrong!

This is a high quality inn. We had the Sylvan Room and the Garden Room, both on the second floor. They were very nicely furnished, very well maintained, and quiet. I believe that all the bathrooms in the Inn were remodeled recently, and they are quite nice (our sinks were in the bedroom to make more room for the new shower and toilet).

The restaurant also seems to have been remodeled recently and looks very upscale. Breakfast was among the best that I have had at a B&B, and service was also excellent.

The owners are actively involved in running the inn, whether working at the front desk or serving in the restaurant, which is always a big plus.

One small complaint is that the rooms were pretty chilly by morning, no doubt due to thin insulation common in buildings of this age. But the modern wall heater/AC warmed up the room quickly in the morning (but was too noisy to leave on all night). Also, the window shades were not operable on all the windows.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are quieter. If you need a quiet room, be sure to ask about that when you...
