We asked if they could fit us in on the Saturday night but they couldn't as they were preparing for...

We had a leisure weekend in Winchester and stayed here for 1 Saturday night. On the plus side, staff were attentive, the bedroom was fine, there is a nice spa (free pool and jacuzzi), and the breakfast buffet was excellent. The downside was that it is a large hotel overlooking a big car and coach park, a bit of a...
