Too many issues to mention, no parking as advised, no hot water (which they hadn't had for 2 days and never attempted to let us know) woken up constantly by the pipes banging so loudly and they wouldn't stop until you got up and ran the tap, noisy rooms, veggie sausages next to black pudding at breakfast - I could...

No wonder the car park is small as someone has parked a cathedral in it! The most central position a hotel could have with great views of this beautiful building and proximity to all the best historic sites, restaurants and shops make this the ideal place to explore Winchester. We were lucky to get a parking space but there are...

We had a very comfortable two night stay at the Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel. It was my wife's birthday and we were visiting our son's, who are at University in Winchester, and other friends in the area. We had a lovely room overlooking the Cathedral. The room was very comfortable and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was...

A great convenient hotel in the heart of the city. Perfect for business and leisure. Stayed for a single night but large comfy room, peaceful and great bed. Very good buffet breakfast and good bar for evening drinks. Recommended.

On the plus side the room was large and the view of the cathedral fantastic. The staff were very pleasant especially on reception. The down side is that the car park is a nightmare.A previous reviewer mentioned that the TV remote control was held together with cellotape and we must have had the same room. We had booked a prepaid...

We have stayed here several times and it is just right for a one night stay at the weekend. It's right in the town but also right next to the cathedral. With good views of the cathedral if you are in a privilage room. We are Accor members and have built up points. So it only cost £50 for a...

A pleasant hotel in the heart of Winchester. It's very convenient for the town centre and comfortable. It's a very traditional style hotel in its feel. The restaurant was a bit uninspiring for evening meals and very quiet, but there are other restaurants nearby which are good.

For me this is the best situated hotel in Winchester and has excellent views of the cathedral from some of the rooms and public areas. The staff are friendly and attentive. The only complaint I have is that the hotel is obviously in need of refurbishment. Some areas need attention soon, for example the dining room carpet!

The negative reviews about this hotel are unfounded. We had an excellent stay at the hotel. Great room with a great view of the cathedral. Parking on sight. Great position for the town and attractions. The best thing about this hotel were the staff who excelled to make us feel welcome.
