Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three from California spent 6 nights at The Pavilion in mid-February. It is well-maintained, in excellent condition, modern and spotless. The photos are accurate - light-filled, even in winter, spacious and clean. The location is very convenient, a 10 minute walk to Waitrose and 10 minutes the opposite way to downtown Winchester. The owners, Caroline and David, are professional and responsive - emails answered within the day.

Two good-sized bedrooms are located on the first floor where you enter. The master has a queen bed and en suite bathroom with large tub and handheld shower. We had a mechanical issue with the bed, but Caroline and David responded to and corrected the issue promptly and thoroughly. The bed is now very comfortable, firm and supportive. The other bedroom contains two single beds, both very comfortable. Both beds have thick lofty quilts which kept us toasty on the cold winter nights. The second bathroom has a roomy rain shower with excellent water pressure. Both bathrooms are impeccably clean and modern. There is an outside enclosed patio with table and chairs that runs the length of the both bedrooms; floor to ceiling windows let plenty of light in. There is a road and bus stop located just on the other side of the patio; while it was very quiet most nights, Saturday night had late night foot and car traffic.

The second floor is a very flexible open living space with a dining table; a comfortable sectional sofa (that expands) and flat screen tv; and a large modern kitchen with island with stools. There is a sliding door to hide the kitchen area but we enjoyed the open loft feel. There’s plenty of light, even in winter, thanks to a balcony that spans the length of the whole room. Sliding wood panels on the balcony modulate the sunlight and give privacy at night - an excellent solution that we used regularly even in winter.

The kitchen is fairly well-appointed. A rubber spatula and measuring utensils would have made it complete but otherwise it met all of our cooking needs. Be aware that the oven seems to run a bit hot so watch your croissants in the morning. Dishwasher, stovetop, washer/dryer and heating system all work well. The heating system is on a timer so you need to remember to override it in the winter if you are at home during the day.

Thank you to Caroline and David for the clean, well-kept modern home that provided us with a home away from home while in Winchester.

Lovely house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is ideally located - a a couple of minutes walk to the local aminities (Waitrose, Fish and Chip shop, Newsagents), walkable distance to the train station and the town centre. The house was lovely, well maintained, clean and had everything that we could ask for - even table tennis in the court yard.

Our stay was perfect and the owner was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great house with a very spacious living room

  • 5 of 5

We've totally enjoyed staying in this lovely and modern house during new year holidays! The area is quiet, and close to city centre and train station (just 10 min walking to get on train to London). Very spacious and stylish living room and big balcony with nice view.. Well-ecquipped, clean, warm and comfort house! Landlords are very hospitable and friendly.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The Pavilion is the perfect home away from home. It is beautifully decorated and maintained and lacking in nothing to ensure your day to day living is 'ready to go' from the moment you step through the front door. Details such as a fully equipped kitchen, books, linens and flowers make the property feel like your own. The owners are a phone call away to answer any questions and their diligence to ensure information is on hand allow you to enjoy your stay from day one. The property is a stones throw away form the town, train station, local supermarket and great pubs and also major road links. This is a stunning property and I would recommend it to any of my friends....but I shan't in case too many get to know about it and I won't be able to get my next reservation!!
