We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Giffard House. Nothing was to much trouble for the owners. The beakfasts were excellent as were the beds and bedrooms. We could not fault it. We would recommend this hotel to our friends for a perfect place from which to explore a charming city. Many thanks

Yes this is a lovely house, with charming staff, and a good breakfast, but don't get carried away! But our room was small, the bathroom door was obstructed by the bed (which was only standard sized), and getting out of bed an into the bathroom involved a little shunting. We overlooked the front garden in which a fountain ran all night, all very charming but a irritating background noise in an otherwise quite area.

the hotel itself was lovely with incredible character - in fact, the pictures on the website dont do it justice! the staff and hosts were very kind and helpful. The location was brilliant as well, very close to the city centre. In fact, I cannot think of any negative things to say about this hotel, everything was amazing - the hotel itself, our room, the staff and the breakfast served as well - if i go back to winchester, I will definitely stay at Giffard House.

A lovingly maintained and operarated, 13 room, hotel/B&B. Super friendly hosts. Great breakfasts, sitting room and lovely outdoor patio. Short walk to the cathedral- use the side streets for a lovely walk. Great reccomendations re dining. Great value. Make sure you ask for a tour to Jane Austen's house from Ray. PS This is the first time ever ( I am 67 and fussy) that I have written a review. Jim T, Vancouver, BC

Ideal location in a quiet tree lined road about 15 mins walk from cathedral and shopping area. Room was spacious.spotless and little exrtas in the room were a lovely touch.,including the stand up fan, which on the hottest night of the year so far was a godsend! The breakfast was superb, freshly cooked, and a great choice of menu.Staff were friendly and helpful and i cant praise the place enough.We have vsited countless b.and b's in this country but this rates as the best., and we will most certainly be back
Thank you.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in June, in a very large room, unusually with a bathroom and a shower room. The room was very clean and comfortable. The owners were very nice, as were the other staff, and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel was about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the cathedral, but be warned it is a pretty hilly place! A highly recommended place to stay, even though the price is at the top end for what is basically a very high quality guest house.
