We had a great stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting, great location for exploring Winchester or just for popping in for coffee or lunch. The secret garden is worth a visit. Good value for money.

Even though we booked last minute and the hotel was hosting a wedding we found the staff really friendly and helpful, the room good and Winchester a lovely place to visit. We would definitely look to re-visit this hotel should we re-visit Winchester.

Delightful hotel in the heart of historic Winchester city centre. Unassuming from the outside but the inside is more than pleasantly surprising with large lounge and restaurant areas and a beautiful "hidden" garden.

We've got the last (small) room. We've seen that other rooms are much bigger, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is located in the heart of Winchester, which makes it easy to see everything on foot

The Winchester Royal is a great place to stay, close to the city centre and easy to get to surrounding areas such as the new Forrest and South Downs. The hotel has great size rooms, very clean and modern and the service provided was very good from all the staff members. We had a great time here.

We had a 20 people dinner party in one of the most beautifully arranged function rooms with friendly and professional staff looking after us on the night. Most of our guests were...

Lovely accommodation in the heart of Winchester. I had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Highly recommended. Everything walkable in the lovely town. Amenities were good. Beds were fine (Spring base mattress). I would return to this hotel without hesitation.

An excellent place to stay with a historical pedigree and good parking - within easy walking distance of the cathedral, town centre and other notable places. Exceptional service and very comfortable with a pleasant, sunny garden area.
