    Gloomy faded splendour of a day gone by


    We were offered a night here when our Wichester Mecure booking was not available as promised. We were told it was equally a 4 * - It is most definitely not a 4* (offocial rating 3*). We didn't even bother looking at the room. The hotel is convenient, but the entrance was from an age gone by. Now, we can appreciate 'olde worlde' and a spot of old fahioned culture, but the carpets looked very worn and there was an all over 'grubby' feel to the place. The bar area seemed very small and we couldn't see the restaurant from our first explorations. Extremely old fashioned feel to the place, with a large out of date painting of the Queen in reception and as I say, a threadbare feel to the carpets. The lounge area, resembled a not so good old peoples home with a cross between 1950s and 1970s decor. I am sorry if this offends, but there it is. I would not wish that on retired people, or for a paid stay for any age at all. I read down and see it has nice rooms and a pleasant garden, but we wanted to feel like we had gone to a place that took us away from the nagging feeling of cleaning that one has at home! Also, I think any culture is better for a mix of all ages in whatever circumstances, that is just my opinion and this did not offer that feeling. As I say, we refused the room and looked elsewhere.

    Unique Quality: The receptionist was very sweet and helpful.
    Convenient for center of town, ermmm cheap? Nothing else that I can think of.

    Winchester's Worst Hotel


    A popular hotel for British pensioners. The rooms are average in size, all with en suite showers. Some rooms face the inner garden, which is just off the restaurant and bar. These rooms can get noisy at night and on weekends, there are private functions held in the garden. There is unreliable internet access through the phone. All rooms have a television which gets both digital tv and radio stations. Limited 24-hour room service. Breakfast is available which some rooms in the restaurant. The are two car parks, which are often full with restaurant guests. We had to double park and give our car key to reception almost every evening of our stay. The hotel is very old and noisy. If you are looking for atmosphere, stay here. But if you want a good nights sleep, look elsewhere!

Nice Luxury Hotel

by no1birdlady about Winchester Royal Hotel

This very nice hotel is in downtown Winchester which makes if very convenient for seeing all of the sights of Winchester including Winchester Cathedral. This hotel was built as a private house then became a Bishop's residence and a convent. But for the past 150 years it has been a hotel. It has 75 bedrooms which are large and very nice. There is a very nice garden area in the back which is a nice place to sit and relax. The included breakfast is a real feast.
