My husband and I stayed here for one night under the 'Autumn Offer' booked directly through the hotel website. I knew that we would have to pay to park and at £7 for 24 hours this was very reasonable (it's not the hotel's carpark even though it is directly outside). You could easily leave the car and walk into town....

Good location for weekend visit to Winchester with a short walk from/to the train station. Double club room room with all expected amenities - comfortable bed and good nights sleep. Didn't hear the wedding party going on in the ballroom at all - but that could have been due to the route march distance to get to the room! Friendly,...

Whilst we were aware that we would have to pay to park at this hotel, it still rankled, that at the prices charged and target occupants involved that they haven't come to an arrangement with the council for complimentary parking for residents! Check in was fairly simple, however we were dumbstruck to be asked up front for the balance of...

My friend and I met up for a girls' treat at this hotel on their Friday Feeling offer. We felt this represented superb value - and we were delighted to find that the food was particularly good.

Typical buildings in close to the points of interest of Winchester. Especially noteworthy is the restaurant. The dinner was excellent, with good vegetarian options. Breakfast is has a variety to choose from.

Stayed one night for business. The reception bat and restaurant areas look very smart and the spa looks great although I didn't use it. The hotel is convenient for town The only things that could be improved for me would be smarter and larger rooms and better double glazing because my room was quite noisy.

An ideally situated hotel only a short walk from the town centre. Have to say all the staff were ultra friendly and professional. The reception, bar and restaurant areas were modern, well laid out and inviting, the room however was somewhat bland, anonymous even. Levels of cleanliness were impressive and bed, bedding etc extremely comfortable. The tea tray unfortunately was...
