        ideal for a couple of days at the races.

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        The food was amazing even though we had to wait 20 mins before we could order due to the chef being alone and having too many orders.

        The WiFi connection was impossible to use, the rooms were very small and the car park was unlit.

      • Single
        6.2

        The staff were absolutely fabulous to a man/woman. All very friendly.

        The hotel was dowdy and down at heel. The whole place is in need of refurbishment and the carpets in my room needed a good steam clean. There was a dirty towel left in my room from the previous incumbent and the kettle was covered in dirty fingermarks. I was not in the least impressed with the cleanliness and would not stay here again nor recommend the hotel.

        Excellent food in delightful small dining room off the bar.Linen and cutlery etc, very good

        Out of the 4 rooms we booked (not all thro you) 3 had no heating working and 1 room very hot and impossible to turn down

      • Single
        5.8

        Rooms were good but everything else pretty average

        difficult to find your way round, very little atmosphere

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        No problem coming back to hotel at 3 A.M. Room clean, facilities good enough, including tea/coffee and hairdryer in room. Easy and free parking. Nice staff.

        No fried egg with breakfast - only scrambled. Luke warm water in bathroom. Decor a little tired in places, especially bathroom windows and ceiling. So, mostly little things.

      • Single
        5.0

        Atmosphere was really good.

        Electrical installation in bathroom not good.

        Had a meal in the hotel the first night was terrible never again yuk and took hours ,

      • Couple
        7.8

        We enjoyed the night life in Newbury and the walk along the canal. The hotel was quieter than we expected although it's on a busy road. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was fabulous.

        The bathroom felt in need of an overhaul and I didn't like the shower curtain. Frosted glass in the bathroom windows might help too - we felt a little overlooked from the building across the street.

      • Single
        8.2

        Convenient for shops and restaurents. Parking excellent. T.V. in room. It would have been useful to have printed instructions but the staff helped. Excellent tea and coffee and toiletry fascilities in room. Excallent bathroom en suite with bath and shower. Constant hot water.

      • Group of friends
        5.4

        Working at Newbury showground very close

        where do you start ? No-one seemed to want to serve at the bar receptionist very frosty general clenliness not i would expect.

      • Couple
        7.8

        The room and en-suite was amazingly spacious and clean. Very good value for money.

        Had to wait for a table at breakfast, should have made extra provisions for the amount of guests. Booked a wake up call for the following morning and we are still waiting for that call! Not good if you really had somewhere to go.
