Location is good and they have parking (register or be fined!). Rooms - creaky and generally a bit small and smelly. I think I paid about £70 a night so not great VFM Service - friendly in that main, fairly efficient in the main. One morning some 'thing' told us we were sat at a non-breakfast table. She was generally... More

The bathroom had a Saniflow system which kept making a horrendous noise every minute. I requested a change of room.There was only one alternative that was part of the fire escape system so I declined. all of the other hotels in Newbury were fully booked so I went back to the Bacon and said that I would stay in the...

Nice pub with very friendly staff. I had room 1 which is a standard double. It is basic but bed very comfortable and clean but compact en suite. Cleaner had missed a half used water bottle (2 provided in room) and heating very warm in this room. Where this pub wins hands down is free parking (register the number plate... More

Oct 27 2015, also fined £60 for parking. My colleague and I were in Newbury on business from the US. We had stayed there a couple of times before over the last few years with no problem. We were passing through and decided to drop in a grab a pint. We arrived at night in the rain. Contrary to what... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. I was going for a business trip and a colleague provided me the name as it was close to the office and thought it would be a good place to stay. I notified the hotel I would be arriving late as I was on the last flight from home. When I arrive... More

Lovely place, 400yr old coach house with lots of little quirks. We stayed in a double en-suite room, loads of plug sockets, tv, coffee facilities etc Handy for the town centre and shops. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic - full english plus other options. Definately would book again.

I stayed at the Bacon Arms mid-week to attend an event the following morning, therefore my choice was based firstly on location, which is excellent for the centre of Newbury. I had a pleasant meal in the bar and a comfortable night's sleep, the room and en-suite were clean and well presented, and the building has a lot of interesting... More

I am currently trying to find somewhere to live in Newbury and during my house hunt I parked in the Bacon Arms to look at the outside of a house. I then went straight back to the car park as we had decided to have tea at the Bacon Arms, however when I looked at the Menu there wasn't anything... More

Do not visit this place. Arrived after 8pm on a Tuesday evening to eat with colleagues, was fined £60 for parking, apparently I did not register my vehicle on a device inside the pub. Attempts to ask for support from the manager on duty were met with indifference. Horrendous experience and rip off, not to be trusted.
