Central and Bijou
Esme place is perfectly located in the heart of Winchester in a street full of character. The accommodation is stylish, very comfortable and spotlessly clean with plenty of thoughtful touches. Esme was friendly and super-helpful. We had breakfast just down the street in one of the many independent cafes ( there would be only space for a breakfast tray in bed in the room) We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again and thoroughly recommend it.

Centrally Located Nice Accommodation with Parking
Lovely set up with a large bed and bathroom with shower in downtown Winchester just off the high street. It's within 5 min walking distance to most sites, although there is no breakfast option available but the area has a great selections of restaurants. The room is nicely decorated with relaxing aqua blue color and quality beddings, it is sparkling clean as well. There is coffee pod machine with even decaf option, there is first aid kit and some other emergency toiletry items. We arrived with car, Esme kindly provided a local parking permit which allow us to park on the local street for free. Will definitely recommend Esme's place.
