The bed was excellent for a hotel the room looked over Winchester Cathedral which was lovely and the room was quite of street traffic. Although the hotel is a little worn I would not hesitate staying again. Great location

Fair 4.0
Old fashioned and in need of a re furb
The staff were helpful and friendly , the hotel was tired and badly in need of a refurb, the room allocated on our hotels.com booking was a disgrace and we had to upgrade , this isn’t the first time this has happened The food was basic and disappointing
Alison, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Not sure I can book again.
Lovely location, fantastic views, nice manager. I don't like a 'double' bed that is two badly-matching singles though. There was a half-inch diference in height and a hard border in the middle of the bed, not a great night's sleep. Grab and go breakfast was not the best (just hated the bacon baguette, sorry) and the coffee came as a kit - I had no kettle in my car so that was a fail. Giving me a cup, stirer, a coffee sachet, and a lid but no hot water was utterly unhelpful. 50/50 whether I would stay again.

ell-located, convenient hotel
This well-located hotel is rather tired. Was in a standard/ economy room. The bathroom, bed etc were very clean and hotel and staff all very Covid aware and compliant as were guests but the hotel is looking well-used and skirting boards etc need a good deep clean/make over when money allows. They can’t rely on the excellent location forever.
