great choice
a very good choice in winchester. the hotel was great, the location in town excellent. the added benefit that was the deal maker for me was the history of the hotel. the fact that the royal hotel was there when jane austen was alive made the difference to me. just a great find. i would / will stay there again.

Mediocre.. & Car Park Fees on top!!
Had to call the hotel from the advertised car park to ask where I could park because of no spaces being available. Was told that there was a wedding on and there was another car park down the road. This cost me another £15 onto my stay which I wouldn't of had to pay. This annoyed me from the offset. To have to pay when others don't is not fair. We had no plans to be at the hotel other than to sleep anyway but wedding guests everywhere in the lobby during the celebration was slightly awkward ... not a showstopper though by any stretch. In-room was OK. Coffee machine and tea facilities were great. But little else to talk about. Hairdrier was present and a limited toiletry selection. In the morning I handed the key back and was given a good morning but no further 'how was your stay' at which point I would have aired my carp park grievances however thought best just to get out and get on with our day.

Nothing special
I booked two separate nights one in a superior room and one in a standard room i called the hotel the week before arrival to link the rooms so we didn't have to move. It was confirmed we would have the superior room. On arrival it was the standard room and they were fully booked. Standard rooms are basic and all the toilets have the worst flush ever barley useable. I wouldn't stay again needs a good facelift including bar and foyer

The Royal Hotel Winchester
I felt the room was rather small for £89, especially after looking at the photos displayed on the internet. The view was over the car park, I didn’t see any sign of the gardens. When taking a shower I left my clothes on the floor and when I picked them up they were covered in dust. The bed was comfortable. The place looked a little tired and run down in places.

Exceptional 10.0
Hotel was beautiful, the staff were very nice and helpful, we got the impression that they were only too happy to help. The room was beautiful, only issue is the shower was way too hot to actually use which was a shame was it was beautiful. All of the hotel was very hot, the heating seemed to be on all the time which made the dining room incredibly stuffy and our room was very hot at times but that is just a minor “complaint” I will certainly return to this hotel and am looking forward to doing so as soon as possible!
