This hotel is amazing! We received a free upgrade upon arrival which was a bonus! The room was absolutely beautiful, like nothing I've ever stayed in before. If you are looking to impress, or like to stay in luxury then this hotel is for you. Haven't got a bad word to say about it.

Stayed for one night in March. I was a student at the university so came back for a catch up with old friends. The hotel has a lovely entrance/ lobby. From what I saw, the whole place was very clean and our rooms were perfect for what we needed. There was no noise from other guests. The location is great... More

Sadly only able to spend one night at this lovely hotel ( second visit ). Everything is well thought out and beautifully presented. Food was excellent, room lovely, staff helpful and friendly. No time to wallow in the spa pool but maybe next time.

I stayed there on business and the rooms I booked for myself and colleagues were magnificent. I have travelled the world and have never had such a luxuriously appointed room. I had a suite where I entertained my guests and everything was fantastic. The food , dinner and breakfast were also excellent with a good selection to choose from. Car... More

We arrived and could see only one table occupied in the restaurant. We were acknowledged but then left waiting for about 5 minutes maybe longer. We were shown to the table, I told the waiter we had booked a table for afternoon tea. We were left waiting 10-15 minutes, at which point the waiter came back with a pot of... More

Very enjoyable two night stay. This was our first time in Winchester and really pleased with our choice of hotel. Absolutely lovely hotel and very nicely placed in centre of Winchester so we could leave the car behind for 2 days. Found the council car park in front of the hotel better value than the hotels own car park. Stayed... More

Went to the hotel for a spa day. This included two treatments and use of the gym and pool areas, including a lunch menu.
