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 .

We stayed here as a last minute decision. We did check out the reviews and a lot of them were quite negative but it seemed ideal for what we wanted and perfectly situated. I am so pleased we stayed here. We were shown to our room by the young lady working behind the bar. She explained when breakfast was and... More

I booked three rooms, in order to attend a family function nearby, 2 doubles and a single. On arrival my wife and I were given a room within the main premises and my son and his wife, and my other son, rooms in what they call the stables. Pleasant enough rooms in the stables however they were accessed from outside... More

Stayed here for three week's in all that time we found it to be great, not the smartest of places but the hospitality and friendlyness of the place did it for us. We will be going back. We found the food very good, Sunday roast is a must. Warren ans Sally did a great job in looking after us, go... More

I stayed here on business in october because it is close to my office. Never again. The bedroom was clean and tidy but the bathroom was a disgrace. Dirty tiles and paint peeling off the walls. The staff try but a bit more training may help. The pub is owned by Marstons so come on guys spend some money and... More

Stayed here while on a business trip for 5 nights in November. I was in room 8, and by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I don't even know where to start, but calling in fawulty towers would be an understatement. Rude staff, and very unhelpful when it came to issues with the room. Honestly the staff... More

When I see mixed reviews I always try and give the benefit of the doubt and accept that sometimes, it's not possible to please everyone as everyone interprets things differently! On this occasion I wish I'd taken heed!! The place is full of character with wonky creaking floors and beamed ceilings etc. That's where the charm finishes though. To say... More
