I stayed here because there were no rooms elswhere in newbury. This is an old pub with rooms last refurb 20 years aro. Low ceilings, sloping floors, narrow corridors and stairs. My room was big but very basic. Comfortable bed. Some traffic noise. Bathroom was tired, i had to crouch under fixed showerhead over the bath. Welcoming staff and fast... More

For £12.50 for 3 courses, it really was pretty good. Loads of hot vegetables as well! Normal bar prices and fair and prompt service, with people that actually smiled! For the price, really excellent value for money! I'm not saying that the food was fantastic but certainly worth it!

The friendly faces,the great atmosphere, my friends who own it are a great bunch of people to have a chat, laugh and having a good catch up with. Food is great, service is excellent. And a very friendly atmosphere in the bar area. Good place to work as well.

Stayed here with friends for a couple of nights as we were going to the races. I would say that the hotel could do with a makeover but it's not nearly as bad as some say. I was told that the hotel is being refurbished within the next 12 months. The bedding was clean and the food was really nice.... More

Booked in for two nights, staff were friendly, lunch was nice, room cleanish (could have been cleaner!) had the worst nights sleep of my life!! Bed was hard and uncomfortable, pillows were hard, traffic noise really bad, and the shower didn't work properly, booked out after one night. Only stay here if there is nowhere else to stay! Wish we... More

I stayed here recently to meet up with some friends in Newbury. This is by no means a hotel or even a B&B. The whole place looks, dirty, run down and very neglected. I have never stayed in anything so awful in my life. I am so glad I was sharing a room with a friend because had I been... More

This has to be one of the worst hotels I have ever had the misfortune of staying in. The staff were few in number and were miserable & generally unhelpful; not helped with the barmaid having to act as waitress and receptionist as well. The plates & cutlery were stuck to the tables and there was a feeling of grubbiness... More

We stayed in the Bacon arms inn, Newbury, in order to attend a weeks training course in a nearby location. Firstly, we was welcomed by possibly the rudest most unfriendly staff member I've ever met. On arrival to our room, the windows would not shut, the room was slanted and the shower does not work. However, we managed to put... More
