Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was quirky in shape over 3 levels and very tastefully designed. It was in a very convenient and central location in a quiet, little street behind the pub and minutes from the cathedral. It was a perfect place to stay for a couple of days away with my two sisters!

Great location
Location is excellent right in the middle of Winchester opposite the cathedral. Excellent communication beforehand. Clear instructions about parking permit arrangements. The room was large and clean. You can hear noise from the street and pub below but it's not an issue at all. Plentiful and varied breakfast. Would recommend.
