Myself and my husband treat ourselves to a weekend away at least once twice a year and one of the places we always come back to after hours of web searching is this hotel , the staff are really friendly and polite the location is good and the food is delicious always fresh and hot and good quality , the rooms are clean and very large. I would say if I was being picky that the bar prices are on the high side but as it's a treat we don't mind paying them I was a little disappointed this time round that when I did go to the bar for a prosecco I was told they had none left ? but still the wine was nice they did have.
But overall as usual a great stay and would and have recommend this hotel .
Very beautiful hotel, good to stay for 1-2 days, very good restaurant. The room was very spacious, very nice, not cold (I read several comments that it was cold, but in our case. We went on 7th December, the heating was on with a heater in the room and in the restaurant). Did not get a change to get to the Oak restaurant cause its always busy, twice went to Orangery restaurant. the food was delicious. Spa facilities are good
We had a fantastic stay at the Royal Berkshire hotel. We stayed on a Friday/Saturday night, with the intention of heading to the Ascot races on the Saturday. Check in went very smoothly on the Friday night, and the room was fantastic, with a lovely view.
On the Saturday, we noticed a lot of people trying to check in at 11am, obviously hoping to get into the hotel, changed, and out for the first race (at 12:40pm on Saturday). But check in time was listed at 2pm, and although I'm sure the hotel would have done all they could do to accommodate early attendees, if you are hoping to attend a jumps meeting with an early start, I recommend checking in the day before.
We returned from the racing Saturday night and had dinner in the Fork restaurant which was exceptional. Special mention for the steak main course, and the Fairground dessert (we didn't have it, but it looked spectacular). My girlfriend had the "Jelly" dessert, which again, looked amazing, and according to her it tasted superb.
The staff were also able to conform with a special request we had for the Sunday when we were leaving. Any time we went to the bar in the hotel we were impressed, with the staff there extremely helpful and chatty.
The only (minor) downpoint, was the lack of air con in the room, and I don't think it would have been a problem, were it not for the unseasonably warm Halloween we've had! All in all though, it was a superb hotel, and well worth spending the money on
