Stayed here for work. A nice hotel but tired looking, in need of some refurbishment though. Great friendly staff and fabulous rooms, ample parking at the rear and in the centre of Newbury so plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Would recommend.

We got room 124 which was on a corner with 2 windows and a sofa. Very nice room. Bed was fine. We spent 3 nights there. The hotel itself requires some updates and painting. It has free parking. We tried the restaurant once and we find that the food was not more than OK and the staff was not very... More

The Chequers hotel is a historic coaching hotel in a good central location which has been refurbished on the ground floor creating a pleasant, if slightly characterless feel on the ground floor. The bar area is particularly anodyne and lacking in atmosphere (on the plus side there is a decent pub serving real ale 200yds. up the road). The upstairs... More

We arrived at The Chequers Newbury for a six day holiday. We had a good breakfast, pleasant staff and were conveniently situated as we were without our cars. Unfortunately, we were allocated one of the UN UPDATED rooms (our relatives had made the booking for us and we were not informed of this at the time). This room had a... More

I have stayed in this hotel repeatedly, for over 8 weeks in total. It is almost my second home. I would not go anywhere else in Newbury. For this price, it is a no-brainer. The staff is really nice. The location is perfect both for the town centre and for walking to my office.

Stayed here over the Easter weekend for 3 nights whilst visiting family in Newbury and the situation was ideal as shops, restaurants and pubs were only minutes away. The staff, particularly in the dining room, were welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts provided a good choice of cereals, yoghurts, cooked items, fresh fruit, cold meats and pastries. Our bedroom was spacious and... More

Very good hotel. Except WiFi in my particular room all was fine. Friendly staff, good tea facilities and cookies. Very big and clean room. Different TV channels. Good location. It can be noisy if you have windows on Oxford street.

Firstly I have to say that I have stayed at The Chequers several times before. It has an old world charm and character that I like. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfasts cooked to order and staff very pleasant. Last night's experience is the first bad one I have had there but none the less it did happen. It was... More
