I can appreciate the experience that Jade D had however I joined friends who had stayed for the four previous nights and found John the owner very friendly and accommodating. You are very much invited in to John's home if you stay here, John is a very thoughtful host.
Winchester is a lovely town and Wolvesey View is only a two minute walk from the river (or more specifically a pub beside the river) and not too much further to everything else Winchester town has to offer.
Our room was very clean and had a wonderful view of the college cricket pitch. The weather was lovely and with the window open there was nothing to be heard except bird song in the morning. Our tea pack wasn't fully stocked but it wasn't an issue nipping to the kitchen to make a coffee.
We had a simple bacon and egg breakfast then toast and marmalade with cafetiere coffee despite being offered a lot more.
We all had a perfectly pleasant stay and we would/will all return however I can appreciate that this B&B might not suit everybody.
