My partner found and booked this hotel originally for a 2 night stay which was (v unfortunately) cut short due to work commitments, we will definetly go back to make up for the lost night. Originally the idea of the trip was to meet up with some friends but didn't quite realise how must Winchester has to offer.
This is an amazing hotel with lots of quite stunning original features, extremely clean, very comfortable with great hosts and set in a quiet residential area. We have commented that this is our favourite hotel we have been to in the UK and we have stayed in loads. Yvonne displays a genuine warmth, interest and helpfulness to her guests. If you like animals she might let you meet her lovely pets, if you don't like them don't worry as she is very strict on where they can go and you won't come across them. Yvonne is very informative and passionate about the amazing hotel and the history of Winchester and is very happy to help if you're not sure. The hotel is about 5-10 minutes from the city centre which is quite hilly in parts. The River, Cathedral and Great Hall are all about 10 minutes away and are a must to visit.
We also had a massage at Redwoods and had good times at The Queen Inn, O'Neills and good food at The Old Vine.
All in all a very comfortable and hassle free stay in an incredible house. Thank you!
