Why We Love This Hotel

  • This 16th-century hotel has a walled garden and is in the centre of Winchester
  • The Garden Restaurant, housed in a conservatory, serves a wide selection of local cheeses cheeses, and is praised by The Daily Telegraph for its "largely homemade and absolutely delicious" food
  • Winchester Cathedral and the local shops are within a 5-minute walk
  • Jane Austen's House Museum is a 25-minute drive away


With its medieval architecture, magnificent cathedral and nearby South Downs countryside, Winchester is a great destination for a mini break. The Winchester Royal Hotel is in the centre of town and is the only hotel in the city that has a walled garden -- nicknamed the "secret garden" by locals.

Originally a private house, the property then became a bishop's residence and later a convent, and has been a hotel for the past 150 years. The Garden Restaurant, which overlooks the walled garden and terrace, serves modern European dishes and has a large collection of local cheeses.The Daily Telegraph praises its "largely homemade and absolutely delicious" food.

From the hotel, The Great Hall, an atmospheric 13th-century hall featuring a medieval round table said to be linked to King Arthur, is less than 10 minutes' walk away, while Winchester Cathedral and the high street are five minutes' away.

We recommend a stroll alongside the River Itchen from the National Trust-owned Winchester City Mill to College Street, where you can see Winchester College and the house Jane Austen lived in for the last few months of her life.

Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium is a 15-minute drive away.

The staff in the dining room were friendly and helpful and the food in the evening was good.

The smallest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel. The shower had very hot water squirting out of the shower hose which was dangerous. The hotel was very tired looking and needs an update. We had stayed there some years ago when it was very good.

Nice hotel but if you choose a garden view room, the room is just like any other room, a bit soulless.

From the time of booking in until we left everything was excellent. All food was well prepared and served hot. Room very spacious and the bed comfortable. Staff always happy to answer any questions one might have. This is our second visit to the Hotel and we will be returning in the near future.
