“Perfect Winchester location”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had a lovely long weekend staying in the Sky Penthouse - a weekend away with two best friends and all we wanted was somewhere nice (tick), where we could do lots of catching up (tick) - but the location and apartment provided much more than this. Winchester is a lovely place to wander around and we visited during the Christmas markets too - very festive but warning it was also VERY busy, so much so that we couldn't get in anywhere for lunch (literally every café and restaurant was full with 1-2hrs wait even at 1.30pm!) and couldn't book a table for dinner unless we were happy to eat at 6pm or 10pm - so book in advance if you are going to be in Winchester over this period!!!

The apartment is really lovely and comfortable - exactly as described- and Gordon is on hand across the corridor if you need any advice etc. We arrived to find a lovely chilled bottle of fizz in the fridge - very nice touch - and everything we needed was in the apartment (apart from oddly, tumblers!!! lots of wine/cocktail glasses though!).
We would definitely recommend the sky penthouse for anyone wanting to stay in the centre of Winchester - much better than a hotel as you have a lovely comfortable apartment to chill out in after a hard days shopping.
Thank you Gordon!

Thanks Cath, Nice to have such great guests!! I'll add some tumblers, to go with the huge selection of stemware!! Winchester is indeed very busy, and there are some places to eat, that are still not totally booked so guests arriving in November and December reading this, please ask me for help! - Gordon.

“A perfect base in Winchester”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

This immaculate apartment ticks all the boxes: central location near the Cathedral and close to the station; easy access (the lift worked fine during our stay), well equiped kitchen and very comfortable beds. The sitting room had a panoramic view. Little touches, such as fluffy towels and the welcoming bottle of wine added to the allure. The owners were most helpful, going out of their way to assist us and to advise on local attractions. In this regard, Winchester is an ideal venue. So much to see, both in the city and further afield (Portsmouth, London within easy reach by train). The biggest challenge was finding the apartment in the first place: Winchester's one-way system would confound anyone, clearly designed to exclude or at least to frustrate motorists, but once mastered we coped with it easily.

“Lovely views”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Would love to give this 5 stars but unfortunately I fell ill on arrival. It took some time to figure out it was a combination of high pollen count and perfumes within the apartment. I never thought to ask before renting if it was scent free. These days, most places are.

I immediately removed the joss sticks in the dining room, but getting the scent out of the bedding took longer. I slept on the couch the first 3 nights.

On the upside, you have to love the host. Gordon was right there when he was needed, otherwise out of sight. Loved the heart shaped soap dish.

As I said, unfair really to rate this. Not everyone is old, has copd and can't handle a few flights of stairs when the lift was down. I would love to have loved it.

Dear Yvonne, You and your husband were a delight to have as guests.Thank you both for the great review. My apologies again for the two day lift service coinciding with your stay. Sadly you didn't mention your allergy when you booked or to me during your stay. Be assured I would have definitely ensured the apartment was scent free on arrival for you. Also the spare white cotton bed linens for the bedrooms are all stored within the Penthouse so any and all bedding could have easily been changed for you both as often as you needed. Please visit us again and we will ensure now we know about your special requirements, that absolutely nothing distracts you from having a great visit again. As I said you were a delight to have as our quests at the Sky Penthouse. We hope to see you again!- best wishes Gordon.
