I was looking for a place to stay for one night, while attending an event at Wash Common, near Newbury. The Hare and Hounds is conveniently located just south of the M4, within walking distance of Newbury town centre, yet feels like a country inn, surrounded by lovely rolling countryside. It was great to find a family run hotel, very... More

The room was great; spacious and well-equipped. The location is on the outskirts of Newbury town centre but it's dog friendly and there are some good places to walk them nearby, notably the golf course. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Food is standard pub food but nicely done and good value. For the price, it's excellent value and... More

Being someone that stays in Newbury on business on a regular basis and has done for many years; my colleagues and I were running about of places to stay as were so fed up with inflated prices and dreadful service in all surrounding hotels.

What a little beauty! My son and I enjoyed a two-night stay in this family-owned little inn. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Make sure you walk to the castle ruins nearby and be back in time for nice dinner in their cosy little restaurant. Will definitely come again!

Hi Victor O I was very pleased to see how much you both enjoyed your stay. I was looking through our reviews before our monthly meeting, (when we read all out) and it is a credit to our hard working staff that they get mentioned for their service and friendliness in just about every one!

There's not a huge amount of accommodation in the area so thank goodness The Hare & Hounds steps up to the mark. Ok, the "recently renovated" rooms are a touch inadvertently retro (a Boutique Hotel it isn't!) but everything is spotlessly clean, the rooms are well-equipped - Freeview, iron, hair dryer and free wifi! - and everything works.

This was our second stay at The Hare & Hounds at Speen and was not disappointed. We were welcomed warmly and immediately shown our rooms which are comfortable and serviceable but our bathroom was very small. We had booked dinner for 5 of us and had a fab meal, particularly enjoying the Thai Chicken Cakes. The pub has a great... More

Charming, comfortable and great service..free wifi too. All the great room needed was a suit of armour. Dinner was wonderful also. Staff very friendly. You could tell they liked what they did. Loved our brief stay.

We have stayed here once a year, for the past 8 years as a base for a birthday weekend to the races. We have always felt the hotel represented good value for money, with a nice bar and restaurant, with good food. The rooms were a little under par in recent years, but we didn't expect much for the money.... More

This Hotel is the most accomadating in the area. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I arrive late on a Monday night most weeks and find it hard to find hotels in the area that are open late. The Hare & Hounds always find a way to get me access to my room. When there is a problem, they... More

Great location for the Devizes to Westminster canoe race. We stayed as a group, it was a fairly basic room, with a very small bathroom. We couldn't open the bathroom window so there was no ventilation from showering. Sadly we could not eat dinner there as there was no room for us, which was disappointing. But a good Toby carvery...

Dear tkitmike I am really sorry ref the window, it is now fixed, I guess these things happen, but we do act quickly. My apologies also that you could not have dinner.
