This was the first time we had used the hotel for a function. From the beginning we were impressed by the professional and friendly attitude of the management and staff. We felt confident that all aspects of the event were considered in detail and well delivered. Consequently we had an extremely successful and enjoyable celebration party. Our thanks to Mr... More

We have never stayed overnight at the Borough but as we live within a mile we use the Hotel all the time for many family celebrations and business lunches. We have been using the Borough for over 30 years. Mr Sheikh is so accommodating and always goes the extra mile to make any event really special. Recently enjoyed a family... More

Tonight, with so much help from the owners of the Borough Arms Hotel, I hosted a fundraising event for a great charity that has raised more than £700... The owners were incredibly generous,so hospitable, and so happy to help with organisation. The function room we used was perfect- A very nice 'L shape' which allowed our guests to help themselves...

We three weary travellers arrived at the Burrough Arms late on a Saturday afternoon looking for a room for the evening. The hotel was totally booked so the staff called around to other hotels in the area for us, all to no avail. Finally, after an exhaustive search, Mr. Sheik, the general manager, and Kim in reception found a room... More

I originally planned to go abroad for our wedding but when we found out the exciting news that we were expecting a baby around the same time, we decided to postpone for a year and go on the hunt for a venue in Staffordshire where we reside. We went to many wedding fayre's in and around the area and then... More

From our first visit to the day after our celebration, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or polite. The organisation of the event was superb, including putting up our decorations. The food was fantastic and nothing was too much. Will definitely use this venue again.

From our first visit to the Borough Arms to the day after our celebrations, the hotel staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. Wedding organiser, Emma, was superb; such a lovely person who is definitely in the right job! It was the best day of my life by far, and I hope my husband would agree!! The hotel... More

We stayed at the end of June for 2 nights on business and en route to chester races. My husband frequently stays here and the manager kindly upgraded our room to a lovely large room with big bathroom at the top of the hotel. There is no lift so be prepared for stairs if you are at the top. Everything... More

Booked after TA search. Cannot quibble on price but the room was a bit shabby however it was clean. It was small and faced the road so traffic noise was intrusive on what was admittedly a warm night. The breakfast was good and the staff encountered very pleasant and helpful. Could not hand on heart recommend as some serious TLC... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Borough Arms Hotel and Restaurant is one of the oldest established hotels in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent areas, with history dating back to 1783. The hotel is very much of the style associated with a traditional English town centre coaching inn, yet has been sensitively and subtly refined to offer the comfort and modern standards demanded by today's visitors. Independently owned and managed, the hotel retains many period features and takes great pride in offering a very personal service. As a valued guest, you may be confident that we will do our utmost to ensure your comfort, whether you are staying in one of our 40 centrally heated, en-suite rooms, visiting us for a meal in the restaurant, or using our conference and banqueting facilities. ... more   less
