    Best Chicken and Chips I've ever tasted in my life. Such a simple meal, but when cooked right, OMG. I've stayed at hundreds of hotels over the years because of work, but The Elephant stood out. Lovely rooms. Great breakfast, good prices, a Hidden gem. The 2nd. The Wykeham Arms In Winchester. Pub, come hotels in England are the best places you will ever stay at. Not the big chains.

    A very nice place to stay. Helpful and friendly staff and a great supper and breakfast. I will return.

    Went to a 40th birthday party here last Saturday lovely hotel with a decent garden area. Had a super time, drink prices aren't that bad and if you going there in the evening the public car park next to the hotel is free to park in after 6pm

    Great little find, staff very friendly and the dog friendly rooms out the back with access directly into the garden area is a real bonus. Not much onsite parking however car parking is available nearby (30 seconds walk). Will definitely be staying again.

    The positives are that the room was cosy & very comfortable. However, we were attending a wedding, when we returned to the hotel in the early hours of the morning to find we’d been locked out, no one on reception or answering the call buzzer that went directly to an EE mobile message which left no option of details or able to leave a message. We were very lucky that we had friends staying in the same hotel which we could contact and were able to let us in. Never experienced that in a hotel before. Then unbelievably the same thing happened again on the Sunday night, unfortunately this time we didn’t know of anyone staying in the hotel. Thankfully, the bride & groom live 15 minutes away from the hotel, so we walked back to theirs. When asking the manager, the next day what time was the curfew he explained there isn’t a curfew it’s all depending on who is still in the bar that night & if the bar staff is happy to stay on. At no point of our arrival was this lack of information was given to us.
