Winchester & Area Holiday Reviews

Winchester Cathedral, Winchester

Often described as ‘the perfect English city’, Winchester is an ideal destination for a relaxing getaway. Our hotels in Winchester provide the perfect base to explore this culturally rich medieval city and the beautiful countryside that surrounds it.

Based in the county of Hampshire, one hour south-west of London, Winchester was once the capital of England back in the Dark Ages. This historic city sits between South Downs and the New Forest, meaning our Winchester hotels provide visitors with the best qualities of a city break and a country retreat.

  • With a rich history, the incredibly impressive Winchester Cathedral is a must-visit; one of the biggest Gothic Cathedrals in Europe, the building is breath-taking inside and out
  • Winchester is also home to a number of other striking historic buildings including Wolvesey Castle – also known as the Old Bishop’s Palace – and Winchester Castle, home to King Arthur’s Round Table
  • Nearby Marwell Zoo is a great choice for those travelling with the kids – covering a staggering 140 acres, it’s a great place to roam for the day
  • The city is also popular with culture vultures and foodies alike; lively street theatre, impressive architecture and a buzzing contemporary arts scene attract a diverse array of visitors all year round.
Browse our range of Winchester hotels in the list below to find the perfect place to stay during your trip to this fabulous city.

Lovely Weekend In Winchester

Stay Date: 06/03/11, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel in Winchester wrote this review.

Gorgeous weather and very tranquil town. Whilst all the usual stores are present, the character of the town has not been compromised. Bedroom at the back of the hotel was comfortable.

A Night In Winchester

Stay Date: 03/02/11, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* The Winchester Hotel and Spa in Winchester wrote this review.

The hotel was comfortable but the room was noisy - a fan or air conditioning unit on the roof made intermittent noises (like someone dragging a chair across the room) for most of the evening and See More  Read more information night. The hotel decor was dull, all browns and fawns, more suited to a business meeting than a leisure break. Winchester is lovely - lots to see and do - clean and tidy and well-cared for. The hotel waswithin walking distance of the town and railway station. The pub near the city bridge and mill, not far from alfred's statue, served excellent food at reasonable prices - forget its name!.   Collapse  Hide

We See More  Read more information had read reviews after booking and were worried as people didn't rate it very highly on rooms or food. We had two rooms and they were both very clean and comfortable - staff were all polite andbreakfast which was the only meal we ate in was lovely - hot, and plenty of it.
