Stayed here for one night on a weekend trip to Winchester. We were given a huge room with double bed, day bed, single bed and two armchairs - plenty of options for lounging and relaxing! Great views from there too. Location is wonderful, just a couple of minutes down the hill into the centre of town. Hadn't realised when booking...

We stayed in Winchester for one night and had a fantastic time at St. Johns Croft. The house is really beautiful. Our room was enormous, with a big bed, sofa, armchair, table and sink. Dotty was the perfect host and made us a delicious breakfast. We would definitely recommend!

We stayed here for just one night over a weekend. From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of the house. It has such character both outside and inside. The rooms were clean, big and well maintained-again having character about them. The view from the rooms at the back is of the amazing garden. The beds...

Gorgeous house, wonderful light, airy and stylish room, delicious breakfast, great hosts and friendly, informal atmosphere - what's not to love? I stayed for 2 nights as I was on tour with a play at the theatre and it was a fantastic haven to return to after the show.

I stayed at St John's Croft, which is set in a picturesque area of Winchester, for 1 night in a beautiful house. After a long day on a course it was lovely to be welcomed by such a friendly face, he (the owner) carried my case and showed me to my room. My room was like a mini apartment, free...

Dotty is immediately friendly in a natural, entirely easygoing way. Don't let her name or laughably inaccurate reviews give you the wrong impression. A big part of the brightness, charm and character of the place is because of her. The rooms are huge, the breakfast is lovely. A nice example of just how first rate the hospitality was came at...

My sister-in-law and I shared a huge twin room in this lovely B&B. It was a very hot day/night outside, and the room was beautifully cool with a lovely view. There was a massive well kept garden which Dotty was happy for us to use although we ran out of time. Dotty cooked our breakfast in front of us on...

We booked a few weeks ago using the number on the website. Dotty was such a fantastic host and when we arrived we were welcomed in such a great fashion. The room was spacious and clean; we also had fantastic views out the front over Winchester. The location was fantastic, the breakfast was well cooked and I haven't felt more...

We made an inquiry regarding availability and price for a room using the website form and received a confirmation back that a room was available for the night requested together with the rate. We were asked to confirm if we would like to proceed with the booking. We responded on the same day confirming our booking. We arrived at about...

Thank you for your review. Your booking for July 6th was made on May 4th and unfortunately was not reserved in the diary at the time. We had an issue with bookings made from our website whereby the email history was not recorded in our bookings folder which has now been resolved and that is why the booking was not...
