Seriously outdated in need of refurb. Staff welcoming. Room was disgusting & filthy. No room between bathroom & bed. Housekeeping seriously needs addressing .Such a shame as perfect location for town centre.

Last minute booking for an easy night stay in Newbury, leaving very early the next morning. Staff polite on arrival, shown to our room outside the back door right next to the smoking area (I am a non-smoker) and the way out to the car park. Heating in the room wouldn't turn on, bed creaked when you moved, toilet wouldn't... More

I had to attend an interview in Newbury and my partner booked the Bacon Arms online. Unknown to me, he had booked it without reading any reviews therefore before we set off I decided to research the B&B. I was horrified at some of the reviews that I read but we had already booked and couldn't cancel. I was panicking... More

Read some mixed reviews, but with little availability in Newbury at short notice, we booked the Bacon Arms. We arrived very early, parked in a large rear car park and mindful of the "scamera" comments, went in just to register our car, intending to return after 2 p.m. to book in. The "scamera" comments seem exaggerated, there are ample signs... More

Stayed here for a few nights in May. Walls were paper thin and I could hear conversations from guests in rooms each side of me. Breakfast was of poor quality and service was extremely slow. Staff were not very friendly. Location is the best asset of the bacon arms

I arrived with no issues and found it easy to find using my satnav with plenty of free parking around the back - you need to enter your registration into a machine by reception to avoid fines (this can be done for the whole duration in one go). When I arrived I found my name had been taken wrong and... More

This hotel has handed over the management of the car park to a company called Parking Eye. This means that if you forget, just once, to key in the registration of your vehicle into a validation machine, then you will be given a £100 parking charge notice from Parking Eye. Don't bother pleading with the staff, they will just shrug... More

I organised my birthday party with them and was great. They food was delicious, they made everything easy, staff were checking if we needed anything and making sure everything was ok. The room they accommodated us in was clean, spacious and with all we needed (including tv screen to connect the karaoke :)). Totally recommended.

Sad demise of a once good pub. The new car parking scameras mean all customers are guilty and fined unless after you go into the pub you then go somewhere else called 'reception', where ever that is, and enter your registration number into a machine of some kind. Seriously bad way to treat customers and I've been going there for... More
