The hotel was a pleasant 10 min walk from town centre. Winchester is a historical town with lovely walks and lots of nice shops, pubs and eating places. A number of free entry places to visit. A pity you have to pay now to go into the cathedral. The hotel was was well situated. There was a nice outside sitting area, which was pleasantly unexpected due to the location. Great for a short break if you want to enjoy a bit of history.

This hotel is approached via a public car park and the first instinct is to use the exit and locate another hotel; however, that would be a mistake as the hotel has all that's required for an enjoyable stay (once you get inside). Rooms are clean, spacious and relaxing. If I had to complain, I'd say the restaurant lacked atmosphere in the evening - but that's easy to remedy as there are plenty of places to dine in Winchester. I was on business and therefore didn't get to try the spa facilities.

Love, love LOVE this hotel!! We have stayed here five times now and each time it does not disappoint. At 5pm on a Saturday, we decided to spontaneously visit. Nothing was too much for the Reception team and we were booked in, upgraded and relaxing by 6.30! We usually go on the Friday feeling offer, however as it was a Saturday we had the Fizz package. The value for money is insanely good! £140 for a room including two glasses of fizz and £50 off our meal. The meal was delicious. We always ... Read more

A modern hotel in walking distance of the city centre. Bed very comfy and room quiet. Little touches like super-thick towels, heated bathroom mirror and a decent hair-dryer cleverly concealed in the dressing table. Staff smart and mainly young - keen and helpful. Superb meal in the restaurant and the bar has a very nice outdoor seating area. Would stay here again.

We stayed here last Saturday as I wanted to visit Winchester and this hotel was chosen purely because of its peaceful location yet easy access to restaurants/bars and some sight seeing. Parking is limited for the hotel itself but has a big NCP next to it so it isn't a major issue, although for 2pm on a busy Saturday afternoon, we managed to park very comfortably in the hotel car park and was only just over £6 for a 24hr stay....bargain!

First impressions of the reception area was that the staff were very friendly and helpful. The foyer looked modern, clean and welcoming. The room itself seemed clean and welcoming if not a touch dated as far as the decor. There was however after looking a used shower cap on the hook on the bathroom door and a half drunk bottle of water in the fridge. The bed was very comfortable and large enough to sleep well.

We arrived at the hotel to check in but the room wasn't ready.

To celebrate our engagement we booked a table at Steins in Winchester then thinking we might enjoy a drink as part of that celebration we looked on the Internet for a hotel to avoid driving home. The Winchester hotel and spa had good reviews so we thought we'd stay there. Sadly it was a poor choice. The welcome in reception despite us being the only ones checking in at the time was poor and definitely lukewarm.

On the plus side the staff were polite and reasonably friendly. However the place is a typical big hotel with no character, narrow corridors and awful décor. Breakfast is cooked in advance and laid out on hot plates to congeal with no fresh fruit. We skipped it on our second morning and ate out. Also on our second morning there was no hot water in our bathroom. Obviously their systems can't cope if they're reasonably full.

I stayed at The Winchester Hotel and Spa for three nights on a recent work trip. The staff treated me like a king, the breakfast was definitely fit-for-a-royal and the room ironically had an impressive king sized bed.

We were well looked after by Claire the wedding organiser who had thought of every detail and kept us running to time. The hotel is a great venue for a intimate wedding and all guests were very complimentary about the venue. Our wedding breakfast and meals at the hotel were of a high standard and we could not find fault. The only minor niggle was a couple of staff were very grumpy dur... Read more

We stayed on a Friday and booked via the Friday deal and we thought it was excellent value for money considering you get the room, dinner, breakfast, a cocktail and use of the spa facilities. The hotel is very nice and the room was fine. The hotel is only about a 5 minute walk from the train station and about a 15 minute walk into the main part of the town, so a good location overall. The breakfast was very good with a good range of hot and cold food and the dinner was excellent. The spa fac... Read more

We stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was modern and clean. We took a walk into Winchester centre for dinner which is only a short walk away. Lots of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Great choice at breakfast. Quality of breakfast was good too. Helpful staff all around the hotel. Plenty of nice Gins too choose from on the bar menu (local too!) Will stay again.

Room was as expected; clean and tidy although beds could have been better. Hotel itself was nice and staff were friendly. Good breakfast on offer and convenient location for town. Nice gym and small swimming pool to use. Just think the price was high for size and quality of room and hotel.

Quite expensive and feels bit like a motorway type hotel as basically in a public car park. Good location only took minutes to centre. We were advised had been upgraded but basically this was a disabled room. Room smelt of smoke we complained about this and that shower fell apart when turned it on and to be fair we were given a reduction.

Very nice clean and comfortable room, shower very powerful which was great as most hotels they're poor (I'm a plumber do it matters to me) staff were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was of a very good quality (8.5/10) and plenty full. Swimming pool was very nice as well. The hotel is ideally suited for the centre. Recommended

all staff is focused in not making mistakes....and we experienced that at any encounter. they all are quit stressed not to break the rules given by the management. We're not blaming the staff but we do want to ask the management to review their policies. They might be of good faith but we can asure them that if they forget really to comfort the guests that in the long run they're not going to make it.

We stayed here on a weekend break for a Friday and Saturday night. We had some free nights saved up with hotels.com and so didn't pay the rather expensive tariff. We wanted a hotel near the centre so we could easily walk in, and this was the perfect location...it takes about 5/10 minutes depending how fast you walk. You have the option to use the hotel or public car park. Whilst both seem to have similar charges the hotel car park was cheaper for us as we were out during the day which meant we w... Read more

....it's OK but expensive. We needed to be in Winchester at short notice so I booked this through booking.com. I tried loads of other cheaper places but they were all booked, so this was my only option at £190 B&B (I'm sure lots of other people didn't pay that). It wasn't worth it. We were put in a tiny room (209) which had a large velux window and no blind so we were woken up at the crack of dawn. However, the bathroom was spotless and at least there were tea/coffee making facilities. ... Read more

Everything was clean and ok. Receptionist I found to be a bit brusque, but maybe she was busy? Had breakfast in the room, which again, was OK. Nothing stood out for me, but nothing dire either. Mediocre. Expected a bit more for the price, but never mind

Firstly I would say this hotel is nice, clean and the food excellent. Enjoyed a fantastic dinner and decent breakfast. However! We paid a fair amount for a club room which if I'm honest I was disappointed by. There was nothing as such wrong. It just felt like a lot of money for what it was.

We had a girls pamper night planned and found a great offer at the Winchester Hotel & Spa called the 'Friday Feeling'. Great value for money and the hotel is beautiful. We booked in for a treatment at the Spa. The girls were friendly and helpful. I recommend the de stress massage....amazing! Next we had champagne afternoon tea in Hutton's Brasserie - lovely finger sandwiches and cakes....all homemade. We had full use of the spa which included a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna room...

Coming to Winchester for a weekend we decided to stay at the Winchester hotel and spa. Very close to the town Centre and amenities with the added benefit of a spa. The bar staff and reception staff were very helpful and made our stay great.

Initial impressions were not good. To get to reception we had to run the gauntlet of inconsiderate smokers who were congregating around the ramp and steps to reception refusing to move aside making access a real pain. Sadly when leaving the hotel early in the morning the same was true only lesser numbers. The staff were efficient and friendly and went someway to redressing the smoking situation. The rooms were quite nice but a little on the small side. The room was clean and well kept and overal... Read more
