Great Hotel Location in Winchester
This hotel is ideally located right in the best part of Winchester City centre next to the cathedral. It is vey easy to walk to all the places you need to go as well as to the bus station and taxi rank just round the corner. The room we had was large with a view over the cathedral and a large King bed. The hotel needs updating and the corridors and carpets need a good clean. Even with these shortcomings we would definately stay here again because of its location and parking.

The bed was excellent for a hotel the room looked over Winchester Cathedral which was lovely and the room was quite of street traffic. Although the hotel is a little worn I would not hesitate staying again. Great location
