Single person overnight stay.

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: See above
Cons: Selection of drinks (Bar/Wine list) could be more adventurous and offer a slightly greater choice. The evening menu is not as exciting as it once was.
Location: Two Civil war battle sites, Major racecourse, Kennet Avon canal system. Antiques at Hungerford. Renowned Restaurants very close by. Famous walkway.
I have stayed at this hotel before and booked it for functions. It has an excellent town centre location at a reasonable cost. I like the olde worlde style of the building and its history (It is not a clinical modern no atmosphere place). It has very good own parking and a lovely little garden. Breakfast was plentiful and cooked to a high standard - typical Continental or full English - although not on the menu I was provided with proper Breakfast hot chocolate and left the table most satiated. It is a very pleasant clean and airy dining room. The bar is of somewhat limited stock, but at least has one choice from most of the common alcoholic beverages, served by a most pleasant, well informed and entertaining bar maid. My room was very clean and had all the basic comforts that I would expect at this price as one person staying for a single night's B AND B. I had an excellent noise and trouble free night - not bad for a Saturday night! (Have stayed in a lot of so called modern expensive hotels and can not sleep for the noise of other late night revellers!)

Don't stay here!!

Posted 20-Jun-2014
This has to be the worst hotel room I've ever stayed in. It needs a complete makeover, the carpets had stains and The windows didn't look like they had been cleaned for years. Outside one window there was piles of junk. No lift so had to pull suitcases up and down stairs. The only good thing about this place was the food and restaurant staff.

Great location in town if you don't have a car.

Overall good experience. Breakfast was good every morning, staff were very quick to help and although the hotel is a little shabby I would have no hesitation to stay there again.

Cute hotel close to town shops

Posted 04-May-2014
Cute place but still under remodeling. I felt it was just a little pricey for what it was now but you could see they are trying to do little extras as budget allows. No lift so a bit hard with luggage up 2 and a half flights of stairs. We have a chance to stay again in Newbury in a week but will look else where first. But they will remain on the list.

Centrally located quaint hotel

Posted 22-Apr-2014
Pros: Central position and spacious room.
Cons: Free Wifi, upgraded bathrooms and better double glazing to the front of the building to reduce noise level.
Location: Situated right on the road near the pedestrianised shopping area. Local market takes place within a few minutes walk. Train station 15 mins walk.
Very handy location for accessing the shops and town centre in Newbury. However, noisy rooms to the front of the hotel due to busy road and noise of traffic. Excellent breakfast provided (£10.50 cooked breakfast, £7.95 for Continental) but plenty of good coffee shops or bakeries situated nearby which would probably be cheaper. Creaky floors and lots of stairs around the hotel could prove difficult for elderly guests and bathroom needed a good clean and makeover. Staff all polite and helpful and Dining Room recently refurbished tastefully. Would return again however would request a room away from the front to ensure a better night's sleep and probably eat breakfast locally rather than at the hotel.

Cosy town Hotel

Posted 20-Apr-2014
Pros: It was a homely hotel with a nice bar area and welcoming staff.
A really enjoyable hotel to stay after the races at a good price. The hotel had plenty of character and was perfect for what we needed it for.

Solid

Posted 18-Apr-2014
Pros: Excellent room, good value. Location.
Cons: Front desk knowledge and service. Friendliness of breakfast staff.
Location: Adjacent the main street, plenty of good eateries and pubs
Located at the end of town, but amply close to all amenities. Doors close at 11pm, which was a little weird given the abundance of decent pubs nearby. Room was clean and well furnished. Shower powerful. Breakfast room lovely. Old clown on the front desk tried to charge us for our room, even though we had pre paid on Expedia. Sorted out in the end though.
