Ideal for business
Stayed here for business & it is an excellent location for meetings in Winchester. The staff were friendly & very helpful - could not be faulted. being honest however the hotel just had a "tired" feel about it - just a little drab.

Diamond in the Rough
Just wonderful hospitality and nicest management and staff. The location is excellent and hoping French corporate proceeds with renovation project long overdue. We normally stay in London and enjoyed stay here the drinks and food was very enjoyable. And love hearing historic Winchester Cathedral chimes. And they filmed The Crown recently here and Downton Abbey prior I am a fan of. Beautiful Winchester.

Good but not great
Perfect location, comfy and very helpful staff. Cleaning needs to be better and parking is incredibly steep for such a dated and average hotel.

Good stay
This was a nice hotel, not dirty as other reviews stated but it was a bit tired and in need of updating. Room was great but mattress was uncomfortable, probably needs renewing. Breakfast had lots of options, was tasty and staff were very attentive.

Regeneration needed
Surprised on arrival with a £12 parking charge. No central heating. Just convector heater on wall. Room cold. Side of bath needs replacing. Noisy outside. Not value for money. Whole place needs a revamp.

Winchester and its wonders
Winchester is one of the wonderful cities and once the capital of England. The Wessex is situated literally next to the Cathedral and a 5 minute walk from the town centre.

Poor 2.0
No Customer Service or Communication between staff
I booked a weekend stay for my husband and I and my friend who was 50 and her husband. I requested and paid prior to our arrival for a bottle of Champagne to be put in my friends room as a surprise for her 50th Birthday. When she arrived there was nothing in her room and no card as i was told by the hotel they would provide one. Also I had booked a Groupon tea for the following day as a surprise for my friend at the hotel and on the day I checked it was all booked with the receptionist. When we arrived for the tea it wasn't ready and none of the staff on that afternoon knew nothing. We decided not to stay because we had to wait for the tea. However the Mercure Wessex Hotel Redeemed my voucher and received the money for a tea they did not provide. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone again unless they change the management. The only best thing about this hotel is the position as it is right in the center of Winchester.
