This was a great experience. A lovely room in the heart of Winchester with everything you need and privacy. Thoroughly recommended. Easy walking distance to everything.
The website doesn't specify that a hair dryer is provided but there is one.

We booked just a b whilst attending a wedding in Winchester. It was considerably cheaper than the local hotels. The room was absolutely lovely - one of the nicest I've stayed in and a real bargain for the price. Whilst you don't get the service that comes with a hotel if your looking for a great place to stay we would definately recommend.

Stayed two nights at 'Just a B', while visiting Winchester for work. If you're looking for the standard hotel or B&B experience, this might not be for you, but if you're looking for something a little unusual, with a high degree of independence and nice level of comfort, then I can't recommend Just a B enough. Paul and Penny are lovely hosts, and unlike most B&B's there's no forced interaction or uncomfortable conversations. As others here have pointed out, you have your own entrance, can come and go as you please, and the room is spotlessly clean and very comfortably appointed. Despite being a basement room, the large door lets in plenty of natural light, and the room doesn't feel at all claustrophobic. At night a blackout blind provides complete privacy from the street. When I arrived - earlier than expected - Paul and Penny were out, but there were instructions left on how to get in, and it all felt very welcoming. It's a short walk into town, and a lovely place to stay. Would most definitely return.

LIKE:
Very clean and high quality new, well-appointed accommodation, medium comfort large bed with a nice white sheets & duvet, plenty of space in the room, the fridge was a welcome extra. The bathroom facilities were very good. Close to the main attractions (10 minute walk to the main street). Plus most attractions in walking distance.

DISLIKE:
Very difficult to find as there is no prominent sign – only a picture on the front fence, also the post-code took our sat-nav to a another street. No parking close enough to unload the car safely. But free parking nearby with their residence form.

Room Tip: Only one room available.

Agree with all the other reviews - spotless, comfortable and perfect for the start of the South Downs Way. Great location for the railway station. Everything you need for a good stay. Thoroughly recommended

Just back from a nights stay here. We arrived slightly early but this was not a problem. Room was spotlessly clean. There was a fridge in the room which had milk and water in it. Comfortable bed, folder with useful information in it. Good position and parking nearby. Would definitely return.

Lovely warm room which is a must for me because I'm a wimp when its cold but easy to control the temperature if you wanted it cooler - this is my main gripe with hotels where I tend to feel too cold. spotlessly clean room, comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, great shower, but felt more homely than a hotel. fridge with water and milk in when you arrive is a nice touch. had a lovely evening, lots of restaurants and shops nearby. All in all, a perfect break.
