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

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...

Wall lights hanging off wall a large built up of mould in the bathrom and quite a selection of cobwebs. The pub/hotel is quite in need of some TLC. But it has to be said the all the... More

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
