Overall my friend and I (who go for afternoon tea A LOT) did enjoy our experience in the Hutton's Brasserie at the Winchester hotel. First of all we were attended to by a very friendly and helpful member of staff on reception called Ellie, and then in the Brasserie the lady that served us (I didn't catch her name) was...

Had a lovely room and was very quiet even though it was on the ground floor, normally the footfall or traffic wakes me up but I slept like a baby. My boyfriend and I had dinner in the on site restaurant and the food was fantastic (best burger I've ever had). A woman nearby to us was complaining over nothing...

We had a very good experience of customer service. The staff were courteous, genuine and professional. Well done . Winchester has some olde pubs and is steeped in history. Well worth a weekend. We didn't use the pool etc but we made full use of the cocktail bar and restaurant. There is a patio area to the restaurant which looked...

Staff are friendly and helpful. This is a very clean hotel, towels changed daily. Comfortable bed. Food very good. Good location. Soft drinks are overpriced at £4.10 for a Coca-Cola and parking is additional charge.

Great room with all the usual bits and bobs you would expect. The food was great especially breakfast, the staff were most helpful and the Spa was great. I would certainly recommend this Hotel. The location was good. The only drawback is you have to pay for parking.

Good location and very nice hotel. Room was clean and staff were friendly. 10 minute walk into the centre. Only criticism was the parking. The car park in front of the hotel is council owned and there was no room. There is a bigger car park next door, also council owned but again no spaces available. This was around 2pm...

We had our Christmas works lunch at the hotel for 100 people. The room and tables were beautifully decorated, the food was hot and tasted good. The staff were all attentive and friendly. There was excellent communication prior to the event, with all the planning, menu and wine choices. I would recommend this.
