There fir a funeral. Nice stay. Only issue was noise of lorries delivering to the hotel (I guess?) early in the morning right outside our window. We were in room 233.

Nice hotel, good location

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Graham Solo - 15/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Although it's located in the city centre, the surroundings are very peaceful as it's next to the Cathedral grounds. They welcome responsible dog owners. If you have a dog you can bring your dog into the King's Lounge to take your meals. They were very kind to my dog, bringing him water and the occasional sausage for a treat. The matress on my bed was a little too firm for my liking, but that might suit others. The car park spaces are very tight, if you have a large vehicle you might find it easier to use the car park in Colbrook Street which is just over the road.

Good stay

There were issues with the room on arrival (one light bulb missing one not working) These were resolved quickly on reporting them. The general appearance of the hotel is 'tired' and it needs upgrading and decorating. Very well located for the centre of Winchester. All staff friendly and efficient.

Great location and lovely breakfast

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Elaine Couples - 14/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great central location and the breakfast was really nice, the room whilst being spotless was in dire need of an update, the furnishings were shabby and the carpet threadbare in places, very dark furniture made it a dark room especially as there wasn’t a central light, gloomy at best.

Great location

We were supposed to stay here in May 2020 but had to postpone, the hotel kindly agreed to hold our booking until it was safe to travel. The rooms are spacious enough and the beds so comfortable, set right in the middle of the city. Breakfast on the first day had run low and it took a very long time to replenish so me and my partner ended up eating at different times, the second morning however seemed to be a lot more organised and plentiful, set us up for the day. All staff we came across in the dining room and on reception were very friendly so thank you for our lovely stay.

Location right next to the cathedral

Central hotel

Customer review rating 3.0/5

C. Couples - 09/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Mercure hotel is centrally located so very close to the shops, restaurants etc. The hotel is rather tired looking and could do with a refurb. On a more positive note, the room was warm with a big comfy bed and plenty of hot water. There was adequate storage for our three night stay, but the furniture was past it’s best.

Ideal for the Cathedral and city centre

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anthony Friends - 09/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. The hotel is ideally located for visits to the cathedral and city centre and offers parking (at extra cost).

Hi, Firstly, the staff where polite and attentive. The location is brilliant. Now, the room; Open the door, threadbare carpet; Bathroom, very tired and dark. black and mouldy bath panel, chipped tiles on walls; the room, light switch by the bed no switch just bare internal workings. lamp stand broken, told desk staff, nothing done about it. threadbare net curtains. Beds need replacing or at least turn the mattresses. large hollows in the mattress. We cam back about approx. 4pm on day and wanted a coffee or drink, bar wasn't manned and couldn't find anyone to do a drink!!

Excellent as usual

We had a good stay at the Mercure Winchester. It is in a great location next to the Winchester Cathedral and close to High Street. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Visited this property again and was kindly upgraded to one of the newly refurbished rooms. Fantastic view of the Cathedral from the room. Only concern is that the bedroom had two single beds pushed toghether and they were not the same height.

Very disapointd

Arriving about 13.15 we parked at the hotel (paid at check-out next morning). Room was well appointed, with view of the Cathedral. After our evening in Winchester the bar made conversation with our fellow visitors welcome, and breakfast next morning was fine - just what you would expect.

Great Winchester Welcome

Helg1940 Business - 03/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

We had a good stay and all the staff were excellent and really friendly. A stunning view of the cathedral and welcoming bar, breakfast and restaurant area. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. Thank you.

Superb location

davidchrissythai 23/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

As a value type hotel, this is top draw. Great location, by the cathedral, in the city centre. Rick Stein’s Restuarant five minute walk. The hotel is a little tired but represents good value for money.

Not to Accor standard

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

FlyingSeagull 16/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Complete indifference from the young man at reception upon arrival. Breakfast room staff left a lot to be desired. The man responsible for our room on the second floor and numerous others was really hardworking and helpful. Corridor carpet had some absolutely disgusting stains - I shudder to think what they were. Room furnishings have seen better days. The bed was comfortable.
