Weekend away HCC.
We both found the Hotel very pleasing and the staff of a very pleasing and helpful nature. The food was excellent. The bed was maybe harder than I would have liked but then you can't please everyone all of the time, it's a matter of personal choice but it didn't spoil the trip at all. Would certainly stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We attended a gala at Highclere Castle and it was ideally situated, being less than a mile from the castle. Also, all of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts and other meals we ate there were superb. There was also plenty of free parking. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great people, food, location, quaint but dated.
We stayed here expressly to visit Highclere, which was a 20 minute brisk walk away. Room was small but ok, chilly but there is a plug in heater for additional warmth. For some reason we got the handicapped room so the bathroom was weird, no shower curtain just a drain in the floor and no outlets. Dinner was delicious and the dining room cozy as was the bar area. Everyone was extra nice, helpful, easy going. It's just old but they work well with what they have. We had to go outside to access our room, so it felt more motel-ly than hotel-ly but the property access was limited so we felt safe.
