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.

A massive thank you from my husband and I for hosting our beautiful wedding yesterday. Mr Sheikh, and his staff, were extremely helpful throughout, accommodating our every need. The Baker Room and Ostler restaurant were beautifully presented, with our personal ideas included.

Thanks to Mr Sheikh and his team for making this wedding reception a good night and great value for money. It didn't cost the earth and staff couldn't be friendlier. It was a tight squeeze for the 70 plus guests but if you want more you need to pay much more.

Response from Lynne H, Guest Relations Manager at Borough Arms Hotel

Dear Barry, We are delighted that your stay here at the hotel met with your expectations. Thank you for your positive comments, your positive feedback is very much appreciated and we will pass it on to our team who are sure to be really pleased. The Sugarmill is a great music hub and we have many such venues nearby, particularly the Rigger which is a stones throw away from the hotel. It is always worth keeping an eye out for other great bands like the Lancashire Hotpots. We will look into the difficulty you had with plugging in your kettle and will take the necessary steps to correct the issue. We can only apologise for this and hope it does not deter you from staying with us in the future. We thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to the Borough Arms in the future.
