Broken water system but no reduction in rates
Arrived late afternoon on Tuesday We had no hot water from late on Tuesday evening resulting in us not being able to shower or hair watch etc before going to a 9.45 graduation Sadly I had already paid for 3 garden rooms so couldn’t raise a discount on our stay No safe in these rooms Breakfast which is £17 unless you pre book it used tinned oranges/ grapefruit etc No cold hams or cheeses and strangely no menu on the table to choose items that aren’t on the buffet Staff were pleasant enough and helpful

6/10 Good

There were very few staff visible at the hotel during our 5 night stay. With no lift, luggage assistance would have been appreciated. We were concerned that the hotel was so open to the public. With no staff visible upon entry, anyone could have entered any part of the building. The location of the hotel made it easy to walk throughout Winchester.
