    Superb

    Comfortable room, dressing table that could use as a desk, in the city centre, good restaurant and other restaurants nearby. Fine view of the cathedral.

    I have no comment, save that the exterior of the building was very dull

  • 6.2
    Good

    The location was close to the Cathedral as this was the purpose of our visit. The bed was most comfortable and large.

    The noise from room 114 was from street traiders very early morning calling& selling,for hours and hours, so no lay in or naps.

    My Dad treated me to the weekend. The location was great and the shopping was very good The hotel is a good 4 star as was the staff. My room was very nice and I will stay again. My Dad always stays at the Mercure Winchester when he is in the town and will not stay any where else.We were up for a army weekend.Well done the staff at the hotel and thank you for making my stay a lovely weekend.

    Fabulous

    We were upgraded to an executive room which was spacious and comfortable. It is right next to the cathedral and just off the main shopping area.

    Car parking is limited so I would suggest getting there early if you want a space.

    The first room we were given was shocking, old, peeling wallpaper and very small, nver a double room, not even a standard double and it was not a 5ft bed, it was a 4ft 3/4 bed. We complained and were moved to a refurbished room, which was excellent, like 2 different hotels and that was pleasant, but do not try and fob people off with room 137 ? as a double room for a couple.

    Location

    That the room cost £250 and was small and the toliet broke and all the receptionist said was have you recently flushed. Also parking was not contolled, allowing people to parking in the no parking zone at check out time on a sunday.

    Friendly staff

    The bed was too small, only 4 foot 6. It was supposed to be a classic double room! There was hair on the carpet. The wallpaper by the bed was peeling off. The room was over priced at £155 with no breakfast. A RIP OFF

    Very good

    Nice clean hotel, ovrelooking the cathedral. Cathedral bells/clock chime every quarter of an hour, but we soon got used to it. Excellent location for shopping and sight seeing. Plenty to do. Excellent restaurant in town called the Old Vine.

    Parking is a problem at the hotel. When booking it said it was not necessary to book parking. We couldn't get in and had to park in a short stay car park, which was free but we had to leave at 8 in the morning or go out and pay. We did manage to park at the hotel the next night, but there was no mention of £8 a night parking when we booked.
