The Winchester Royal is ideally situated for making the best of a stay in Winchester. Car parking is usually available on site, but I do object to paying extra for the privaledge when you are actually booked in for a few days. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are maintained to a high standard, you can relax in...

Very central location and a good night's rest. I only stayed one night for business but I felt refreshed after a part from a rogue television light at one point, slept very well. The pedestrianised high street was one street away.

Fantastic Afternoon Tea! I've been to tea here many times, sitting outside on the Terrace overlooking the Gardens and Church. Or in the warm Conservatory. Excellent value, oh so fresh crusts off sandwiches, warm scones and parties!! And tea...more tea if you fancy another cup!! Would recommend this Tea, best one in Hampshire!

The hotel is ideally located just a short walk from Winchester Cathedral and all of the other local sights. The hotel is of a good standard, staff were all very friendly and helpful (especially Bev on reception who went the extra mile to help us park nearby). Our bedroom was spotlessly clean and of a good size, the bed was...

Stayed here for business and when we eventually found how to park, it was interesting to find reception. Everyone was polite and enthusiastic and the rooms clean and tidy even if the bed was a bit softer than Premier Inn. But overall, it worked.

If you want a very comfortable room and high quality restaurant food in the most central location, with secure parking, the Winchester Royal Hotel has it all. We were very impressed with staff service as well, particularly in the restaurant, also housekeeping, who were not phased by our late checkout at 1pm.
