Grabel!!!

Apparently we may never have explained our prolonged use of this word! Our host at Bariloche (being a Spanish speaker) is unable to pronounce the letter 'v' and instead they use the letter 'b' - eg bino blanco. As a result of this he pronounced it grabel instead of gravel!! In spite of our trying to educate him, we failed. Hence our usage throughout. Hope this explains it!! ...

Then to Tesco for food, which took a couple of hours as we compared the prices of everything and really searched for the deals.

We go over our programme for the day, which includes a visit to the Wimbledon Tennis Centre. When I mention that I ...

We wandered into the old college and through the halls where we were allowed. There were many a young man or woman in full dress blues standing where you weren’t allowed to go but all were friendly and polite and albeit ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Winchester Wessex Hotel

    Ok Hotel and well located

    from

    I have stayed here a few times in aug / sep 06 on business and generally have been happy with the hotel and accomodation. The larger cathedral view rooms are very good, some of the other rooms are a bit small and do not have views. It is part of a chain but I have always found the staff friendly and efficient. The breakfasts are good. Have not eaten in the restaurant as there are plenty of better options nearby. I have found the cheapest place to book is the hotels own website - better rates generally than laterooms etc. To sum up insist on a cathedral view room and eat out in Winchester, a lovely city.

    Not all that bad i'd say

    from

    I booked the hotel (3 nights in summer) before reading all the reviews here, and when I did read them I was a bit alarmed. However, because I was skeptical about it when I got there I was pleasantly surprised at the great time we had.

    Very Disappointed

    from

    We stayed at the Wessex Hotel because it was close to the Cathedral and College. The Staff were not very helpful or friendly and the Hotel itself is very drab and in desperate need of refurbishment. Our room was overlooking the grounds of the Cathedral which made the stay bearable, but the room itself was dismal, very dark, extremely hot and not very clean. The bathroom was so small that when you sit on the toilet the Toilet Rolls fall off the holders. The bath panel itself is crumbling and falling to pieces. The service in the Dining Room is very, very, very slow. In fact after sitting at the table for 25 minutes, we had to ask to be served. Although I need to stay in Winchester again this year I will definately not stay at this hotel despite it's great location.

    Not value at full price

    from

    We paid 85 for a Sat night via lastminute and I was fairly happy with that as value but at the fullrate I would be very disappointed. The location is excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive but the hotel does feel dated and the standard double we stayed in was rather small and need a little decorative attention.

    Trip back to the 1960's

    from

    Have to say that this is one of the strangest hotels i have ever stayed in . It is a living monument to 60's or 70's bad taste . Set in the grounds of the stunning Winchester Cathedral how an architectural monstrosity like this was given planning permission i'll never know . It resembles an abbatoir or a prison from the outside and inside things do not get much better , spiral staircases that lead to balconies overlooking public toilets , stained glass windows with strange phalic designs , lots of staff looking very busy but absolutely no guests to be seen.

    Great Location, a little expensive

    from

    We stayed at the Wessex in Winchester as a walk-in with no reservation; found the hotel by accident. The room was quite nice and breakfast was included. The location is excellent; right next to the cathedral and a block from the shopping district and town center. Our room was nice though on the street side and a bit noisy. The walk in rate was a little expensive at 120 pounds plus parking. The breakfast was quite good.

    Worst Christmas Dinner ever!

    from

    Although we didn't stay in the hotel, we booked Christmas lunch for my partner, mother and I at £70 a head - the glossy brochure promised excellent food in wonderful surroundings.

    Ideal for shopping, great service, food, location

    from

    Stayed at Wessex - psrt business, part leisure, great Hotel, good for winchester city centre plus easy for outskirts. Stndards and service second to none. Staff pleasant and helpful

    would stay again and again and again

    Wonderful location deserves better

    from

    We stayed at the Wessex for 3 nights in late December, 2003. Winchester is a wonderful, magical town, and the Wessex has the best position possible within it, right opposite the cathederal. We had rooms facing the cathederal, if we didn't we'd have been very disappointed.
