Great location, very nice staff but absolutely filthy. If it had been up to me I would not have stayed there, but instead had to pop to the local supermarket to buy cleaning products ! The bathroom door was disgusting, there were cobwebs all around the mirrors, which looked as though they hadn't been dusted in years. The shower looked... More

About the 6th visit to the Dundas Arms in Kintbury.Table of 4 requested, booked previous day. Turned up a bit early, nice drink in good surroundings next to the canal, staff very welcoming. Restaurant, not overly busy at 1pm, nor was the garden on a really pleasant summers day. However, the lunchtime menu was restricted to Sandwiches - okay posh... More

I came for a lunch with a large group of people and found the staff very friendly. However, I think the portion sizes need to be reconsidered for the price. The food was tasty but there was not enough of it! Also having a (v) for vegetarian suitable food would be really useful!

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, but the service at dinner was slow; I had to go in search of a waiter to get coffee at the end of the meal, though that was nicely presented and enjoyable. In the morning, there was no milk in our room; apparently the staff should have given us some fresh milk as... More

As other reviewers have noted, the Dundas could be so much more. It has an amazing location, next to a canal in a picturesque village, but it does not meet expectations. The food is average and overpriced at best, and the service is variable. It seems to have a never ending roster of staff - some are pleasant and knowledgeable... More

The Dundas Arms improved greatly a couple of years ago, at last making the most of the setting and enhancing the restaurant, so we chose it for our special anniversary celebration which took place three weeks ago. It is also a lovely 2 hour walk through beautiful Berkshire from our house in Newbury, which ticks our boxes nicely. There were... More

I've stayed a couple of times and both times the rooms were charming, clean, very well appointed and homely. I love the humour of having a gun safe in each of the hunting themed rooms. Well recommended and now the place I will try and stay in each time I visit.

Judging from what is suggested in other reviews and what we found out during our visit, this place has had difficulties living up to the promise of its excellent location and attractive building. From what we experienced, it seems to have turned a corner. We stayed two nights for a large celebration and enjoyed one of the downstairs rooms which... More

This pub/hotel is a lovely building in a great setting. Unfortunately the service/facilities provided are not good enough for the prices charged. Booked 2 rooms in June. Encountered five members of staff during our stay. Staff 1- shown to one room and given one key, even though on arrival we told him we had booked 2 rooms. When shown to... More

We stayed here in June - Hotel is situated on the Kennet/Avon canal and has a very pretty garden. Our room - I believe was called a 'Cottage room' overlooked a side canal and we were treated to visits by ducks/moorhens and garden birds. However, our room was disappointing in that there was not any finishing touches - no fridge,... More
