I visited this hotel on the 2nd December 16 for 2 nights with friends and family to celebrate my 50th birthday. The decor of the entrance and downstairs of the hotel was very lovely but the carpet leading to the rooms requires replacing as it's quite dated and worn. The rooms are okay, nothing special, the phone in our room...

My friend and I shared a club twin room. It was clean but a real drag to get to. Room 337 means taking a lift to the 2nd floor, a lengthy walk along the corridor to another lift and then another long walk to the room. I wondered if we'd ever make it before having to turn around to check...

Room was nice, clean and quiet. Food is very average and very over priced. We had dinner, breakfast and lunch. All were below what I would expect, lunch was the worst. Hotel is close to the city centre and train station.

Everything about The Winchester Hotel & Spa was fantastic.... from the moment we arrived to checkout. The perfect location, the friendly welcome, the beautiful accommodation, the amazing facilities, the well-stocked bar, and the absolutely superb breakfast were all second to none and up there with many other 5* hotels we have been fortunate enough to stay in around the world....

We stayed here for my husbands 50th and we found this was great value with lovely room and the breakfast was lovely. You do have to pay to park but given the close proximity to the town centre that's understandable. We walked into town which is around 15 mins we loved Winchester and really enjoyed our weekend there
