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

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).

Anonymous Couples - 07/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

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.

Great Location

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

Convenient location, friendly staff

Andrew C. Friends - 04/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

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.

Well located, pleasant and friendly staff.

A special deal, good value for money. We had a very comfortable room with four poster bed and sitting room. A lovely breakfast to set us up for the day. Late checkout and parking til 4 pm allowing sightseeing before travelling on.

H Business - 02/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a little problem with Mercure central reservations at the booking point however the Mercure Winchester welcome was warm, inviting and all the staff were so nice, friendly, calm and helpful. They were all busy but made time to make us feel really welcome and helped with local knowledge and were so pleasant. Thank you for a lovely stay. The breakfast was lovey as was the evening meal. The view of the cathedral from the dining area, bar and hotel rooms stunning and is really worth seeing. We will return to Winchester and defiantly try to book the Mercure. Thank you all again for a lovely stay.

Very poor value for money

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Anonymous Couples - 01/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was seriously in need of refurbishment. Much of the furniture was worn out and a number of items did not work. The decor was drab. There were serious cleanliness issues. The buffet breakfast may have been OK for people wanting the full English but for everyone else, the choice was very poor. There were no bread rolls and as a result, there was a queue for the two dilapidated toasters. Croissants were only available on the first day. We did not expect everything packaged in a four-star hotel. Cheese was available but there were no cooked meats. We have stayed in Mercure hotels many times in Europe but were very disappointed at the offering here. Whilst we appreciate the disruption caused by C-19, the price charged was far beyond the quality on offer.

Right next to the cathedral

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Judith P. Couples - 01/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The parking was fine although at £12 quite expensive. The receptionist was welcoming and the room was ready early. We were not told that the dining room was not serving dinner and the bar was too busy to get a meal. The bed was comfy although the room was quite small. The hotel reception area, the rooms and corridors are very dated. The corridor carpets are really scruffy and stained. The whole hotel is badly in need of a freshen up, inside and out. Having said that, the breakfast was really nice. The hotel’s position right next to the cathedral is perfect and the high street is also really close.

Superb location

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

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.
