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

I think the management may have changed since some of the earlier less complimentary reviews, I was checked in by the landlady who was most helpful, I ate in the bar both nights - food was well cooked and good sized portions (Try the tapas - you're in for a treat) breakfast was good and hearty - all freshly cooked...

This is a very fine hotel. It's not as bad as people say. Newbury is a very old town and so as the houses and hotels. Unlike most reviews, my room was clean, toilets were clean and serviced daily. Staff is very friendly. Good things - Cheapest of others - You're in downtown. - Free breakfast. - 2 mins from... More

Arrived and was shown to my room which had a huge hole in the wall, black mould over the old shower curtain and was very disappointing. I paid nearly £200 for a hovel and am very unhappy. Will never return.

We spent one night here at the weekend. One night too many. We were taken out to the back of the hotel to our room, passing a door labelled "Boiler Room" and I joked that that was our room. It might have been a better choice as surely it could not have been worse than room 11. The walls next... More

In general all fine. They have friendly staff, very good english breakfast included, in general rooms are clean, but it seems they have no vacuum cleaner. If you have asthma you should check other hotels... Shower is only 170cm height .
