We stayed here for just one night over a weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of the house. It has such character both outside and inside. The rooms were clean, big and well maintained-again having character about them. The view from the rooms at the back is of the amazing garden. The beds... More

Gorgeous house, wonderful light, airy and stylish room, delicious breakfast, great hosts and friendly, informal atmosphere - what's not to love? I stayed for 2 nights as I was on tour with a play at the theatre and it was a fantastic haven to return to after the show.

I stayed at St John's Croft, which is set in a picturesque area of Winchester, for 1 night in a beautiful house. After a long day on a course it was lovely to be welcomed by such a friendly face, he (the owner) carried my case and showed me to my room. My room was like a mini apartment, free... More

Dotty is immediately friendly in a natural, entirely easygoing way. Don't let her name or laughably inaccurate reviews give you the wrong impression. A big part of the brightness, charm and character of the place is because of her. The rooms are huge, the breakfast is lovely. A nice example of just how first rate the hospitality was came at...

My sister-in-law and I shared a huge twin room in this lovely B&B. It was a very hot day/night outside, and the room was beautifully cool with a lovely view. There was a massive well kept garden which Dotty was happy for us to use although we ran out of time. Dotty cooked our breakfast in front of us on... More

We booked a few weeks ago using the number on the website. Dotty was such a fantastic host and when we arrived we were welcomed in such a great fashion. The room was spacious and clean; we also had fantastic views out the front over Winchester. The location was fantastic, the breakfast was well cooked and I haven't felt more... More

I spent a night in Winchester last week to attend a meeting. Booking the room was very easy, just a phone call. Despite the fact that English is not my first language, the host was very supported and made the communication easy. The room was fantastic: enormous, comfortable and clean. The cleaning lady did a great job. The location is... More

My partner and I recently spent a weekend in Winchester and wanted to stay somewhere that was in keeping with the city's heritage. St John's Croft did not disappoint. It is a beautiful house and Dotty a charismatic host, who made us feel truly at home. We could not fault the room or service and will definitely be returning!
