Stayed here during Bank Holiday weekend and it's a very nice hotel with a lovely sized room. We had an Afternoon Tea in the restaurant which was well laid out although maybe a bit more savoury items would have been nice (personal preference, I am aware) but overall it is good and plentiful. The pool is on the small side...

Please read my profile for my biases. Despite the sometimes cheeky replies from management, I really enjoyed this hotel. I travel a lot for business, and the average business hotel in the UK tends to be clean but basic. This hotel surprised me in a number of ways. I was here for a week, and since I don't like living...

We had a nice stay at the Winchester Hotel for our friends' wedding. The room was clean and in decent condition; bed was very comfortable. There was some painting work going on in the corridors, which wasn't great, but presumably will be finished soon. The breakfast selection was very good, with good hot food options, and lots of pastries, fruit...

Stayed at The Winchester for one night as a stop over, before travelling onto Sinah Warren. Wished we had stayed here longer, everything was excellent, check in, room, food. Will we stay again, definitely YES.

We stayed here from Wednesday the 26th August for two nights. My Husband booked it as a surprise for our wedding anniversary. The hotel gave us a complementary upgrade to a club double and also gave us a bottle of Prosecco in our room! Throughout the whole stay, the staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble.

Disappointing considering the price. The staff were excellent and the spa/pool area was really nice - if a little too hot. The biggest disappointment was being charged to use the hotel car park. Especially as anything over 7 hours stay cost MORE than the public car park which was, in fact nearer the front door! (The reception staff did point...

I stayed Saturday night with my wife for her birthday. The staff are really friendly, pool and fitness facilities are good quality. It is 5 minute's walk to Winchester town centre and the cooked breakfast was fantastic.

My Fiance and myself experienced a night at the Winchester, taking advantage of their Sunday evening offer, the spa offer was fully booked so reluctantly (being the fussy caterer that I am!) we took up the offer of £50 to spend on dinner at the restaurant, what a fortunate bit of luck that was, the food was exceptional, we decided...

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in very comfortable rooms, staff were excellent and friendly and made our stay welcome. We dined in Huttons restaurant on a couple of evenings and the food/service were very good and excellent value. We would certainly stay here again!
