The Old Vine – a warm welcome to one of the most comfortable hotels in Winchester
We’re delighted The Old Vine has been voted a first choice for travellers visiting Winchester by Trip Advisor members, and is included in the AA’s Highly Commended list of hotels offering first-rate hospitality. In 2012 TripAdvisor has awarded the Old Vine a Certificate of Excellence.
We’re very proud of our spacious, beautifully presented four-star hotel accommodation (AA rating, four-star inn), offering a superior level of comfort in stylish yet warm and restful surroundings. Interior design experts Design House have created an elegant mix of antique and contemporary – finely crafted Georgian, Arts and Crafts, Victorian and Art Deco furniture sits alongside the sumptuous fabrics and wallpapers of designers Osborne & Little, Zimmer + Rohde, Nina Campbell, Zoffany and the Designers Guild (which, incidentally, our rooms are named after).
We offer three double rooms, one twin/double room, a luxurious top-floor suite which commands a breathtaking view of Winchester cathedral, and a beautifully appointed self-contained apartment (the Designers Guild Annexe, new for May 2013) that’s perfect for families.
With 24-hour access guests are free to explore Winchester’s vibrant city centre of shops, bars, restaurants and lively night-life; visit our cosy, oak-beamed bar; or book a table in our popular restaurant for lunch or supper in relaxed, friendly surroundings.
Come morning, freshly baked bread, free-range eggs, Hampshire sausage, juices, fresh fruit, tempting pastries and locally produced preserves are the ingredients for a wonderful breakfast, taken either in your room or in the restaurant – the perfect prelude to an exploration of the lively shops, fascinating historical buildings and tranquil open spaces of Winchester.
And if you’re feeling energetic, why not take in the magnificent view from the top of St Catherine’s Hill, gateway to the South Downs Way?
Taking a cruise from Southampton? Why not start your holiday early with a stop over in Winchester? And if you require a transfer to Southampton cruise terminal, we’re happy to make the arrangements on your behalf.
