On arrival at the hotel, it looked pleasant and welcoming. Checked in at hotel and asked if there was two people staying which i said yes. She then said oh, i will need to find a double room then. This took about 3-4mins and eventually got allocated a room which was the disabled room. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. Even to sit on it sank and did not get a good night sleep. Decided to have dinner in the restaurant which has a lovely feel and great wine menu, shame about the service. Ordered food and when asked if the chicken came with veg i was told some. The some veg turned out to be a grilled tomatoes flat mushroom. No sauce with the chicken and a heap of potato wedges. Overall disappointed, but could potentially be a lovely hotel with a high standard.

It was a clean and tidy room, although on the first night really hot as the radiator was on full blast. Bathroom a bit dated. Enjoyed a delicious well priced meal. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. For the price it is a great value and well located.
Needed to find a pleasant hotel for one night in the Newbury area - booking very easy and they were very helpful about an early arrival. Plenty of space in car park, adjacent to individual room with outdoor key. Facilities very clean, kettle for tea, good wardrobe space, comfortable bed. Excellent full English breakfast included in price - a very agreeable stay.

stayed there previously when able to sit in conservatory and watch the wildlife outside.This has now been made into a very narrow restaurant and is not very comfortable .The food was over priced and very average for the price.We ate out on the second night.Ludo the maitre de was at least pleasant on this visit whilst in the past he has been condescending and quite rude.The changes made have ,in our opinion ,made the hotel less appealing.
using the local horse racing industry as a theme for each room, and the addition of horse-based accessories was a great idea. It made another night away from home into a quirky and original stop over ... well done!
All OK with the accommodation other than the room was very cold. It was a cold night, but the heaters had not been on before arrival and so had to be on full all eve and night to warm and keep warm. Otherwise absolutely fine!
Newbury is situated approximately 39 km west of Reading. Vodafone has its headquarters here, and the Newbury Racecourse hosts numerous horse racing events throughout the year. Donnington Castle, a mediaeval relic once owned by Geoffrey Chaucer’s son, is located north of Newbury.
