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

He then took the time out to take us a whole walk through the hotel and explained everything that would be happening on... More

I booked the Borough Arms Hotel for a farewell party for my son and his partner who are emigrating to Australia. This was an event for 80 friends and family and the venue was excellent from the initial booking, helping to plan the evening through top the night itself. The staff were extremely helpful and allowed us to decorate the... More

We recently held a small client event here for professional business contacts. We chose the hotel initially on the basis of location; being central but also having good car parking available. We used the King room which has its own bar, good size entertaining/conference room and and an ante room where we had our buffet. The buffet was varied and... More

We needed a place to stay and this place was recommended to by another hotel that was booked solid. I am actually glad we did end up here to be honest with you. The price was great and the accommodations were very good. The hotel was clean too and that is always a plus!

My Dad was in North Staffs hospital and Mum was staying here for the duration to be near him as we live in Wigan. She only stayed one night as Dad passed away soon after being admitted. As we booked out the manager looked after us and was very caring and professional, it was very much appreciated. We also received... More

Clean hotel, little bit dated. Rooms clean and adequate. Good value for money. VERY noisey when we were there as there was a wedding function in the evening. Our room was in the annex building. Breakfast was freshly made, well cooked and hot. Very good, in fact. More attention to detail is required in the restaurant. When we sat down... 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
