Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
All the staff we met were very good and caring. We had asked for a quiet room at the back with garden view but we’re assigned one overlooking bins and close to a noisy main road. I complained and the night duty manager called Thomas gave us the room of our choice and included breakfast in the package. All staff were good but he was exceptional. The property looks tired and needs to be brought up to mark eg : frayed carpets on stairs, curtains on stiff rails, paint work, fresh grout in bathrooms where fungus has collected, toilets need bleach or changed where black muck has collected over years of use. Just money spent to make the place look fresh and beautiful as deserving of a boutique hotel. More space to hang clothes. Take a lesson from far less expensive hotels like Holiday Inn, Premium Inn, Travel Lodge etc. The hotel is well located in Winchester, has great history as per the building and excellent and friendly staff.

Fantastic break
The hotel is beautifully maintained. All cautions were in place to protect clients from covid with the public rooms within the hotel being kept exceptionally clean whilst bedrooms were only cleaned when clients left to reduce any risks of infections. Hand sanitiser was mandatory at both entrances.
