Great hotel for a Christmas girly weekend, smart enough that it feels like a treat but not too over the top that it's uncomfortable. Perfect location 10 min walk into town. The spa is perfectly serviceable with a jacuzzi and sauna, and thankfully plenty of loungers for people doing exactly what we did - shopping then relaxing by the pool,...

This hotel was absolutely a delight to stay at. Nice people, lovely rooms, excellent breakfast and just in the right place for a nice walk into the town centre. There was a wedding going on at the hotel on the day we stayed, we were in room 2 but we did not hear a thing. Spa facilities were very good,...

Somewhat disappointed at this hotel. Booked and paid for a deluxe club room but found it dark and not large. Small narrow bath and it was two lifts away from reception. The breakfast tables were not cleaned and cleared quickly the breakfast food was not replenished fast enough. Had to ask for orange juice and fresh eggs and bananas. Waiter...

My wife and I stayed at the Winchester Hotel and Spar. The location of this Hotel was perfect for the town and Christmas market. Just a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral which hosted the market in its grounds, passing through the high street and shops on route. The Cathedral is superb and the market has everything you would hope...

I visited this hotel on the 2nd December 16 for 2 nights with friends and family to celebrate my 50th birthday. The decor of the entrance and downstairs of the hotel was very lovely but the carpet leading to the rooms requires replacing as it's quite dated and worn. The rooms are okay, nothing special, the phone in our room...

Dear Guest Thank you for your recent review which I find most puzzling as ALL corridor carpet in the hotel is brand new (replaced in the last six months) and the hotel has not only one but two lifts. In addition we do not serve Breakfast in a corridor and our hairdryer cables are a standard length. You have commented...

My friend and I shared a club twin room. It was clean but a real drag to get to. Room 337 means taking a lift to the 2nd floor, a lengthy walk along the corridor to another lift and then another long walk to the room. I wondered if we'd ever make it before having to turn around to check...

Room was nice, clean and quiet. Food is very average and very over priced. We had dinner, breakfast and lunch. All were below what I would expect, lunch was the worst. Hotel is close to the city centre and train station.
