    Nice but noisy

    It was very noisy at closing time, and at other times during the night. Otherwise comfy bed. Nice shower.

    Comfortable, cozy room

    Stayed here for two nights. Had a nice, comfortable room that had been refreshed recently. Bathroom had a brand new look and feel with great water pressure in the shower. Has a parking lot out back, and location is walkable to anywhere in downtown. Best of all, the pub downstairs is cozy with good food and a decent selection of beer. Staff was very friendly. If you're staying in Newbury, recommend the Dolphin.

      There may be more elegant accommodations in and around Newbury but there will be none better. This hotel/pub is in the heart of town, and is inviting, comfortable in every respect with upgraded bathroom, large flat screen tv, comfortable king size bed, and welcoming, attentive staff - one of whom assisted us in carrying our bags to the nearby rail station. On site food and beverage was of a high quality and reasonably priced in a convivial pub whose quality was corroborated by the presence of locals enjoying a pint or two over conversation. A European style breakfast was available each morning and prepared us for a good day of exploring at a pace we appreciated. This is THE place to stay when in Newbury. Book it now.
