Winchester Royal Hotel - A Forestdale Hotel
3 out of 5

It should be £50 a night as its so out dated and tired inside. However, excellent location, comfy pillows, nice areas (outside, bar etc) and the room had what we needed. With some work it could be lovely

Rather cold room (no. 116) with a draft coming from the single pane window even though we visited in the middle of May. The bed was very uneven and the wallpaper rather worn. Nice breakfast in the charming restaurant. Very central location and free parking in the backyard. Maybe a bit overpriced when looking at the standard of the room.

Excellent location, comfy beds and really helpful and polite staff (a rarity in england...). Very impressed with the restaurant which served up a fantastic meal with well trained waiters. Would definately stay again.

As a family with teenage children we found this hotel extremely welcoming and friendly. The staff were always pleasant and unobtrusive. The large lounge was ideal for relaxing and reading the newspaper along with the complimentary tea and coffee. The bedrooms were of a decent size and the bathroom although a little dated always supplied ample very hot water. This hotel was also very central to Winchester, therefore all the sites were within walking distance.

A delightful combination of ancient and modern, coupled with a high standard of discreet service. Leave time to sit in the pretty garden or if it is wet, play a game of draughts in the lounge. This is a hotel to enjoy, not just somewhere to stay the night. Let us hope its individuality can be maintained now that it has joined a chain.

Large attractive garden which would be lovely in warmer weather and a real bonus in a city setting. Excellent breakfast!

It is very conveniently located in Central Winchester. The rooms are nice. Although very central, it is quiet in the night.
