Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
With its medieval architecture, magnificent cathedral and the countryside of the South Downs within easy reach, 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. We like the sound of the caramelised red onion tart, beer-battered haddock with chips and minted pea purée, and the chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream.
The hotel has undergone a multimillion-pound refurbishment and has 81 bedrooms, each designed in a country-house style and featuring a cosy seating area.
