A gem
Loved it, loved it, loved it. We had an overnight stay to visit Winchester Christmas, my sister and my niece. St Johns Croft was warm and clean, comfy beds, different/interesting and eclectic decoration in a beautiful Georgian (I think) house. Tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. Shared bathrooms...which was not a problem for us. Nice breakfast in the kitchen (cooked on the aga). 10 minute walk down a hill into town. I'd stay there again.

We had a fabulous stay at St John's Croft. Lotty was very welcoming and friendly, the place is amazing with great character and all the comforts you would expect. We had a very nice room, comfortable bed and a brilliant breakfast. The house is a short walk form the town centre and some great restaurants. All round we had an amazing stay and would highly recommend anyone to consider staying here. We shall certainly be returning!
